Ludum Dare 29: Unearth
I decided to do Ludum Dare (my first), but only as a low-pressure thing, rather than an exercise in forcing myself to start and follow through. As such, I started, but I didn’t follow through.
My concept was pretty neat - it was all going to be this little pseudo-3d planet, with layers of crust to blow up and monsters and gems to uncover. As it is, I managed the pseudo-3d, and ran out of steam before getting to the monsters and gems and explosions, or anything that could quite be called “gameplay”.
The pseudo-3d effect involves a wrap-around rectangular space and some math from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereographic_projection
It’s still neat to look at, I guess.
Use arrow keys to move, and X to jump.
