Johan Peitz - Let's make SOMETHING

BATHOS – a recap

Today the voting session for the latest Ludum Dare  challenge was over and the result announced! All in all, there was a staggering 599 entries submitted - in one weekend! An amazing amount of games, and a lot of them really well made and interesting.

My game BATHOS received some really great comments and I'm very happy with the end result as well. Bathos placed 3rd in the Theme category (bronze!!!), 7th in Graphics, 18th in Humor, 19th in Community, and 50th in Innovation. All summed up this led to a 32nd place overall. Not bad considering the amount of entries, the little time I actually spent on the game, and the fact that the game is based on single red herring mechanic. :)

If you haven't played it yet, here's a screenshot and a link:

One thing that really made me happy was the amount of site that picked up on BATHOS right away. I've tried to collect them all here, but if you know of any more sites, please let me know!

General coverage of the event  (that includes BATHOS):
That's it for this Ludum Dare I think. I'm really happy with what I made and would like to use it for something larger. I've already ported the game to my own engine and started adding a few features. Hopefully it will turn into something at least as interesting. Stick around and you'll see!

  1. Congrats – I really liked it!

    BTW you said you used wolfram tune for the music – did you convert the midi to mp3 or are you playing the midi itself in flash somehow?

  2. I had a really fun experience playing this game! Well done.

  3. In case you haven’t seen it already: Bathos has been featured on Giant Bomb: http://www.giantbomb.com/news/the-great-escapekey/3757/
