LD 39 – “Fluff Factory”


During a Ludum Dare, developers from around the world spend a weekend (48 hours) creating games based on a theme suggested by the community. Ludum Dare events take place every April, August and December. (Description from the official website)

Selected theme for the Ludum Dare 39 was “Running out of Power“.
Event took place from 29th of July to 1st of August, 2017.

I was not really sure if I`m going to participiate in this LD at all. One could say that I started to value my free weekends, since I began my 9 to 5 job as a Technical Designer… or that I was just really lazy. However, after I checked out the theme and thought about some potential ideas, I decided to go for it once again!

Timelapse – 20 hours of work in 5 minutes

And so, Fluff Factory was born. I was mainly focusing on environment, graphics and overall silliness. Game is a combination of pet managment/ farming game, where you need to take care of extremly fluffy descendants of guinea pigs, and earn enough money for a ticket to Hawai. (I really needed to go on a holiday at the time)
