The advent of indies!

This night, our little treat for you will open its first gingerbread! What that means? Well, this:

In an effort to bring indie developers together and to give back something to the community, The Rat King asked 22 fellow devs to bake 24 yummy gingerbreads with Him. Each of the first 23 gingerbreads will contain a developer's free game (either made free for the day or just a favourite freebie) together with a price draw, meaning you can win a code for the developer's current game project. The 24th gingerbread will have a winning contest for several of the previous games in store.

So this might shorten the time until Christmas for you. Just head over to www.advent-of-indies.com and have a look!

IndieBuskers 2 – I’m doing it again!

Not that anybody expected it (me included), but once again the IndieBuskers will grab their instruments, get out on the streets and create some games! This time Jana won't participate, but there are three new buskers (currently still secret) in order to bring you even more joy and livestreams.

Ideas are still needed and can also receive up- and downvotes, via the IndieBuskers' own subreddit, until November 2nd, when it starts (4 o'clock PM for GMT+0).

 

Mini Ludum Dare 37, a not-game jam (part 3)

After part one and part two, here are the remaining games of the over 50 entries for the miniLD 37!


Musatic, by Spelchan: Be a (finger) dancer AND a composer!


Sociable, by Chaoseed: Just like in real life, there is no way to win this game.


Stargazing, by PaulSB: Drawing stick figures is an ancient art, first performed by those who invented the night sky.


Text-2-Music, by NeiloGD: Making a song with a message never was easier - just copy and paste your last parking ticket, and you have a winner.


Amazing Awesome Sonophone, by zakchaos: Things make noises, with this not-game you don't need the things anymore.


Fury (HD), by mutuware: This entry is not available in my blog entry.


Just Keep Spinning!, by LittleWoodGames: This made me really dizzy. Fortunately the camera doesn't move locally with the pegtop, I'd have to clean my monitor then.


My Miserable Life (INCOMPLETE), by MegaBrutal: How can your life be miserable if you can eat cheeseburgers and cakes every day? :-S


Nobody canna save me, by kulhajs: Be a hero and cheat at life!


OMGITSAMAZINGASHELLGAME, Raimonds: I like the "E" in that font.


Peon Simulation, by hazard1994: ... and when the dirt begins to fall I'll be the sunshine in your life ...


Caveman, by mattchu: Be a hunter and get hunted! Throw your spear! Walk around! Live in a cave! Life was pure awesome back then, even if it really was low res.


STEAM, by sorceress: Oh, so that's how it works!


The Secret Garden, by SamoojaMies: Catch a frog, decorate your garden, explore the wildlife and carry Buddha around. Relaxing!


tie break, by goerp: "Knot" sounds like "not". Just so you now.


Matar Ovejas, by Manoloide: Most bizarre entry - build sheep factories so you can click sheep to death so you can build more factories. Uhm.


XKCD homage: Press and Move, by kajakklubben: Fly around with your balloon in a black and white world; and read a web comic!


... phew.

That's it - at least for now. Thanks for watching, and enjoy the rest of your stay. I sincerely thank all the participants and as much as I'd like to do a similar Mini Ludum Dare in the future, the sign-up list is hopelessly overcrowded. Perhaps I start my own Nonludum Dare some day, haha!
