Our Ludum Dare 34 Games

Beanstalkers Extreme: Takin’ Out the Trash

- Allen-Michael Brower, Robbie Cooper, James Gissendaner Jr., Noah Park, Darren Vogt

Ever have some really cruddy neighbors? Have they ever thrown their trash on your lawn and you've had to clean it the next day? This guy too. Except his neighbors are giants, and the trash is leaving craters in his village. It's time to do something about it. Used both themes, Two Button Controls and Growth. For the most part finished except a few little things (the tapping minigame never really ends if you don't do anything) and music is missing.

Cluster Junk: The Secret of Trash Island

- Alex Bezuska, Eric Lathrop, Cara Smith, Ben Wiley

We chose GROWTH as the theme. There are millions of tons of trash floating in the oceans. So what goes on while no one is looking in these trash piles? Explore the garbage of humans and try to become the largest trash island in the sea! But hurry, don't let the timer run out!

Drunken Boss Fight

- Anthony Quisenberry, Veronica Rivera

Drunken Boss Fight was meant to be a boss fight with a teddy bear that has grown entirely too large, created by myself (Anthony Quisenberry) and Veronica Rivera. It is pretty far from complete as it was her first game and my first experience using the splat-ecs game engine. For now, you can just fly around and shoot until the time runs out.

PEACHY

The objective of the game is to feed the plant on the top of the tower with peaches. The game is incomplete, so if you can get all three peaches to the top of the tower, consider yourself a winner!

Rooster Rockets

- Caleb Byrd, Brandon Jones

Caleb is Normal difficulty, Brandon wanted a harder game. We only had time for three levels, Caleb level being essentially a tutorial and Brandon's levels having no max speed. It's not as long as we would have liked, but we hope you enjoy the game for what it is and let us know what you think.

SHOOT ‘N GROW

- David Jokinen

Warning lots of flashing colors. Do you like growing? Do you like shooting? Neat! Kill bad things get more PT. Use PT for upgrades! Be careful some upgrades are bad. ): Every time you level up the bad things level up too. Every 10 levels you get full health!

The Supernova is Expanding, Scram!

- Chris Nash, Kurt Taylor, Daniel Waddell, Kendra Waddell

This is an attempt to combine growing and two button controls. The idea is that a supernova happened in a solar system. It is up to you to rescue the inhabitants. You have to hurry, before the supernova kills everyone. To fly your ship, you use the left and right arrows only! Good Luck.
