We started working on a game for Ludum Dare 33 this morning, you can find updates on the Ludum Dare game here. Peter Verzijl joined us for this one, he also works with us on The Side Effects of Life with other people under the name Who Is Noah Games. Because of this we will also release the Ludum Dare entry, currently called Doom, Death & Destruction Tycoon under that name. Naming confusion aside, the name of the game is a clear hint: it’s a tycoon game. The theme is “You Are The Monster”, so we thought “Why not be all of them?” and play the setup to basically any fantasy rpg from the other side. The concept is described roughly in this post on Ludum Dare.
There are also some updates on the The Side Effects of Life tumblr-Page, showing our latest progress there.

Official Jam Entry
We have submitted the jam version of our game to some networks, so make sure to vote for us and subscribe if you want to keep getting updates on new versions. We want to add a couple of features we already discussed and whatever feedback we get from feedback to the game in the coming weeks. A couple of things currently on our priority list are optimizing web players, supporting different resolution ratios and adjusting player controls.
Our first jam game is complete and we have submitted it! You can find it here. We are exhausted but also happy with our results. But voting for Ludum Dare 32 has begun and we want to check out some games. Gege also wrote about it here.
One last build without keyboard support – in a few hours it’ll be there!
The Ludum Dare 32 Jam is a couple of hours after halftime and we have completed our main game loop. Our game will be for two players and we decided to focus on Xbox One/Xbox 360 controllers as input devices. So, the requirements are pretty high at the moment! We might try to add keyboard support or something for a single player after the jam if we can find a fun way and the time.
For now, if you have someone to play with and two controllers, you can shoot each other and find one unconventional feature about the weapon in the current version! We will work on building the first Level next, and add a couple more animations and mechanics.
