People/Power Released for Ludum Dare

<- Back to blog | Posted on 4 December 2018 by Adam Summerton

We have released our 20th Ludum Dare game in a row!  It's a dystopian physics game, slightly similar to 90's classic Lemmings.

The aim of the game is to direct a lot of tiny people into the mouth of a large robot, in order to generate electricity for the surviving rich people.  To do this you have to place a series of contraptions to direct the little people to the robot, things like giant fans, swinging boots and  giant boxing gloves.  The physics provides a pretty haphazard experience, and things get messy very quickly, although flinging people around can be satisfying and pretty funny at times.

During the jam I struggled a bit with this one, and I didn't like it much.  Coming back a few days later though I did change my mind, and I ended up having fun with it.  The problem we faced, as usual, was no time for proper level design.  The pieces are there for quite a fun experience, but the levels needed much more work, and the physics properties needed some tweaking to make the levels more enjoyable.
