If you dig Indie games, you’ve no doubt heard of the Ludum Dare and some of the awesome games it’s produced. The Ludum Dare 28 came to a close on December 16, and today we got to find out the winners.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Ludum Dare, it’s a “Game Jam” that tasks developers to make a game build around a specific theme outlined for each jam. The Ludum Dare 28 jam ran from Dec 13 – Dec 16 and the theme was “You Only Get One.” Over 2,000 games were submitted, and the winner in the overall category for the 48 Compo/Solo competition goes to… One Take from Sheepolution.
One Take is a game about a cameraman tasked with taking the perfect shot. In this case, it’s one of those long uninterrupted shots that have become popular in films over the past few years. Needless to say, it definitely fits the theme of Ludum Dare 28.
One Take is just one of the games put together for the game jam, and some other games that piqued our interest on the 48 Compo side were Sebastian’s Last Chance Supermarket, and Super Sneaky Sample Stealer from Nik Sudan just to name a few.
The overall winner on the Jam/Team side of things is Titan Souls from Mark foster, David Fenn, and Andrew Gleeson. The game is reminiscent of Shadow of the Colossus, but with arrows and on a much smaller scale – very cool game. If taking out Titans isn’t your thing, you may want to check out Alex Rose and Antony Dewar’s Rude Bear Resurrection or YOGO RocketFist from _Rilem.
The next Ludum Dare is scheduled for April, and while that’s months away there are scores of Indie games to peruse over on the Ludum Dare site. If you want to see all a full list of all the winners of their respective categories or play any of the games we’ve mentioned just hit up the link below.
