Other Calc-Related Projects and Ideas / Ludum Dare 26!
« on: April 27, 2013, 01:48:39 pm »
I'll be making a game for Ludum Dare 26. (google it, it's awesome.)
It will be a minimalistic game made out of straight basic, as unique as possible.
I have until sunday night!
You guys should join, too.

It totally is free dude...

The only thing that isn't free is the flashcart and you can play it with an emulator.

Also, welcome to omnimaga.

Technically speaking, as in method and execution and not the actual theory of composition, here's what I do:
I compose in Anvil Studio, then re-render the midi with high quality sounds using Synthfont, and then master the audio with Audacity, spreading the stereo and bass boosting and all. Note - all free programs. Maybe I will make a post regarding some hints and tips later or something... but oh my gosh it is four in the morning here I really need some sleep

Here's the flashcart I use:
However, upon further testing, it appears I have a fatal bug; all the sprites save for explosions tend to disappear after a few hundred points, at least on some plays. But other than that it's cool.

You can also play it on the computer with No$GBA (look it up).

Edit: Post 600 :D

original post here

HUZZAH! I am not dead, and I probably will still be making games and such.

Anyways, here is a quick pick-up-and-play shmup that involves aliens, high quality custom graphics and music (in my opinion), and a veritable f***ton of explosions.

It is the year 30 billion, and Earth is being attacked by an insanely immense horde of violently flammable UFO's. Emergency force fields have been erected, but they are weakening by the second. Your job is to destroy as many UFO's as possible before the defenses cave in, and then post your high scores here.

And now for some screenshots:

And now for credit where credit is due:
Michael H. for giving me the idea for the game some years back
Detonation Films for the explosions
James for DSGM of course

All graphics and music are by me.

In the near future, I hope to make bugfixes, and then make a more challenging and in-depth sequel with an upgrade system and tower defense-like wave and auto turret game mechanics. But for now, and then, too, we have this quick and fun score racking explosion-fest.


Miscellaneous / Boot's big important survey for school

Take this survey and share it around. I need as many results as possible by evening tomorrow. It only takes about 2-5 minutes to take and it is very streamlined.

Eh, ethics? I'm afraid that's a bit too broad. Can you narrow it down for us?

Updated the story. Now split into two chapters, with a better cliffhanger in the middle. Anonymous reviews are allowed, so please take the time to review it if you can. Of course, if you have a fictionpress account, please log in before submitting a review.

PS: I also have another story up, Perspective: A collection of Vignettes, that already has a raving review. Please take the time to read it as well. I will post most things I write every once in a while, so if you like it, then please subscribe to my profile. I will post here when I have a new story, as well. Thanks!

Miscellaneous / The Missile Heist (short story by boot2490)

I wrote a short story for a contest, and it turned out really good IMO. It is only 5000 words long, but it is filled to the brim with action packed awesomeness, and it feels longer, or more condensed than the average story of its length.

"Trouble stirs in a secret military base when three mysterious mercenaries make off with a truckload of experimental conventional missiles. Officer McDowell is quick to pursue the thieves, but he soon learns that their missile heist is not all it may seem." - Description on

So, here's the link. Review if you have the time, but no pressure. It's well worth your while!
