Ludum Dare (to give a game) is a game jam where you have to make a game in 48 or 72 hours. I opted for the 72 hour jam since I didn’t think I could pull the game off in 48 hours and I could use outside sources for help (music, sound effects, etc) whereas you cannot for the 48 hour version. The theme you had to stick to for this competition was “Connected Worlds.”
The results of those 72 hours is my newest game Notes from a Mad Mage.
The game draws on the “Connected Worlds” theme through connecting past gameplay with present. Everytime you die a ghost will appear and perform the same actions you did on the previous run. The ghosts stack so you can have up to 14 ghosts at a time (totally depending on how much you die). It gets frantic!
