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 27 was “10 Seconds“.
Event took place on August 23rd-26th, 2013
Project Explosion is a first person action/puzzle game. Your task is to survive a bomb explosion in each level. Most of the time, you just need to run away and avoid getting hit by flying debris. However, there is also some simple puzzle solving and platforming included.
I released Project Explosion on Itch.io at the end of 2017, where it has currently reached over 2000 downloads. It got also noticed by several smaller youtubers.
