My second participation in a game jam, Ludum Dare 36. This time, I was part of a two-person team, which was crazily fun! The theme was “Ancient Technology”, and we made a sailing game, which semi-realistic wind mechanics! You sail around, rescue people, and discover some secrets! If you ever wanted to learn how to sail against the wind, we invite you to give it a go!

We used the (awesome) 2D game engine LÖVE, which uses the Lua programming language. You can download the game from the Ludum Dare website!

Alice kindly recorded a fun playthrough:


Ludum Dare 36 was special because it was community-organized (instead of Mike doing all the work), and there were no ratings. This led to very constructive and in-depth feedback, which I liked!
