So I've just been awake for the past 48 hours...

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 4, 2009, 7:47 PM
  • Listening to: Don't Stop Me Now
  • Reading: 48 hour game comp blog
  • Watching: The
  • Playing: The Great Migration
  • Drinking: Energy Drinks



OH and for some serious lols, check out the 'overheard' page. There's some funny qotes on that. XD twitter.com/overheard48hr

If any of you live in Brisbane, Australia, and are into games, you probably know about the 48 hour game competition in which you have 48 hours to make a solid, working game.
There was no time for sleep.

Anyway, the basic idea is they give you three keywords, and you have to come up with a concept and produce it. The words this year were love, giant, and storm.

After a brutal two days, our team, Immigration Office, produced the game 'The Great Migration'. We didn't win, but we got best concept, which I'm very happy about.

48 hours, 13 teams, no sleep. Pikachu fainted. Shit went down.

So, anyway, yeah. It was a cool. Check out the website to see our crap.

(Our team. I'm in the yellow.)






Art Trades: Closed.

These prices are a rough guide, and are assuming my usual half realistic/half cartoony style. The more cartoony, the cheaper the price, and the more realistic, the steeper the price.

ah,

I saw your animated whale-like thing, and thought it was really cool. I am impressed that anyone can create a game without sleeping for 2 days.

Wow, that sounds like it was crazy but a lot of fun too. I know I probably would have lost my mind after the first 12 hours o.o

Looked at your game on youtube, I loved it! I can see why you were awarded best concept :D

One of these days I'll participate in the Ludum Dare, which is a solo 48-hour game competition instead of the team effort you were in.

Getting to my main point, Ludum Dare "survival guides" strongly discourage staying up the entire 48 hours since you'll more than make up for any time you "lose" by resting.

That sounds hard. O.o What happens if you're strictly an artist/programmer? Or is this for thepeople who are good at both?

I haven't participated in one yet, but I've gotten the impression that can be quite intense. You have to create a game by yourself from scratch in 48 hours--including all content--which means you have to be programmer, designer, and artist on your project. The competition does permit high-level middleware like Novashell, Flash, GameMaker, Torque, and Unity, and entries are judged on a wide variety of criteria, so there's hope for more design and art oriented people. :)

You can check out the rules here.

That's why I haven't done it yet. I have enough trouble getting a game prototype finished in two WEEKS, let alone two days. :D

That sounds like just... crazy awful but crazy awesome at the same time. D8 At leat worth experiencing once in a lifetime. I'd only do it once anyway. I like sleep too much. I've stayed up for 24 hours before and that was bad enough. ffff

DAMN RIGHT YOU GOT BEST CONCEPT
Cuz the brain of Ayem is made of win with dah concepts.

Ayem Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009
I didn't really come up with a lot of the concepts. I only thought of the greeblies. Haha, but thanks!

I didn't stay up for the whole 48 hours, hehe. I slept for maybe... 4 hours?

Haha, me too. I was too busy making it and didn't really get a chance to play it. Which is a shame, because it looked fun.
Actually, that's what I'm most happy about with our game. It was genuinely fun to play.

what part of the production did you take part in the most? Maybe character design? Environment? Programming? I hope you understand what I'm getting at. Get some screen caps or something for us!

I worked on concept (everyone did) concept art, assets, and character design. (The character didn't get used in the end, really, though. XD) I just got a copy of the game now. Gonna upload some stuff to DA. :)
