Med kit replacement in The Zombifier

Med kit replacement in The Zombifier

Mea Culpa, only recently have I learned that the red cross on white background popularily used in games as med kit symbol is a protected sign.
Seeing it so oftenly misused I really didn’t realize it mustn’t be used for this purpose in games.
As soon as I have learned this fact, I have therefore modified the symbol used for med kits in the game The Zombifier which I made for Ludum Dare 33 game jam in August 2015 with a generally approuved one.

Roc’h Arnev Island lighthouse for Pixel Dailies

Roc’h Arnev Island lighthouse for Pixel Dailies

As the yesterday’s theme was lighthouse I just had to draw a lighthouse from Roc’h Arnev Island which has all 6 of them 🙂
The one I love the most and which is the emblem of Roc’h Arnev is situated in Ploumanac’h in Brittany on the splendid Pink Granite Coast, and build using pink granite.
This is the one I chose to immortalize in pixel art. What do you think?

Thoughts on Loop Hell

Thoughts on Loop Hell

Ludum Dare 37 is finished. It was a great experience as usual. I must admit that I really enjoyed all the feedback. And I was especially thrilled by the comments on newgrounds and bontegames.
It really was a pleasure to discover that some people really did enjoy the concept of a no win game. The concept of repeating hell, the sort of hell that Sisyphus was condamned to.
On top of this the game actually hit top 100 in one of the cathegories (theme) which is the first time for me on a Ludum Dare jam. It surely is rewarding. The game also well ranked in graphics so it motivates me to pursue working on pixel art. I really feel like I’m improving.
All in all, I just wanted to express my thanks for the motivating feedback which helps getting on with other projects! 🙂
