Johan Peitz - Let's make SOMETHING

BATHOS – an LD48 game

Last weekend the 21st iteration of the triannual game developing challenge Ludum Dare took place. Participants vote on a large number of themes and after several rounds the final theme is announced and the event starts. Developers now have 48 hours to single-handedly create a game from scratch based on the selected that theme. A hearty challenge that requires both endurance and planning to fold out well.

I've join a couple of times before so I knew what I was getting into. Also, I wouldn't be able to partake the entire weekend so I deliberately kept the scope of my game small. Sticking to my guns I used pixel graphics and a platform style experience. The game is quite secretive in it's nature so I'm not going to tell you too much of what it is about, but I am very happy with the end reslut! :) All in all, you find yourself trapped in a small room, and you have to escape. Can you?
