Back into Wurm

With the release of indoor walls last week, I’ve started playing Wurm properly again. For the past year or two (I honestly cannot remember now), I have had a pretty decent account in most skills that I was using for day to day skills, building, mining etc. While I had this account, I turned my ‘Budda’ account into a priest, meaning it could start to cast spells and stuff, but be fairly useless for building, improving, and pretty much every other skill. Unfortunately a couple of months ago I was forced to sell the good account as I was low on cash, so having started playing again, I was left without a proper account to play with. This led me to the decision to de-priest my original account. So I slowly watched my priest’s Faith drop from 52 down to 30, at which point it automatically de-priested. It was a … Continue reading

BioBattle – Ludum Dare #23 Game

Well I finished my entry for Ludum Dare early in the morning today, and have now had a sleep to refresh myself, so it is a good time to write a post about my experience.   The idea for BioBattle comes from an old game I played many years ago that has dropped off the planet, called Battlethingz.

Ludum Dare #23

Just a quick post to say that I am entering Ludum Dare 23 this weekend. As of this writing it starts in 2 hours, so no idea what I’ll be making yet. I was planning to repost the blog posts I make on the Ludum Dare site, but since there is no easy way I’ll just give you this link. If you are interested in what’s going on (and if I post during the competition), it will be here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/author/budda/ On a related note, I will be creating a timelapse of the 48 hours, so I’ll have a video up with the finished game after it is all done. Wish me luck.
