Happy 2014

December 29, 2013, by Rincewind

For some of us it's going to be 2014, others like me are on an internet time connection in the future to the past. This is what I suspect, because for me it was 2013 three years ago. I'm still theorizing but worst case would be that I'm isolated in a copy of the physical world with no actual year, connected to the internet of the past, and when I go outside there are people projected in my world from three years ago. All over again, because I've been in this time before, and I didn't travel back to it.

This world could only have been designed by a bunch of game developers gone mad. One thing's for sure, Boolean Soup's going into 2014. It's only waiting whether my internet and people will go into 2014 too, or whether I'll be let into yet another year full of madness I've seen before, because a game developer's clearly not in control anymore.

Happy Newyear everyone

January 2, 2012, by Dennis

Fenix code:
// it's been a long time, dunno if this would work, but here I go...
begin
  graph = init();
  loop
    if (rand (0,100) > 25)
      banner(400,300, graph);
        end
    frame;
  end
end

process init()
begin
  set_mode(800,600,32);
  set_fps(24,4);
  return load_png('Happy_newyear_logo.png');
end

process banner(x,y, graph)
private
  struct velocity
        vangle;
        vspeed;
  end
 
begin
  velocity.vangle = rand (0,360000);
  velocity.vspeed = rand (2,12);
  while( x > 0 and x < 900 and y > 0 and y < 600)
    xadvance(velocity.vangle,velocity.vspeed)
    frame;
  end
end

Ludum Dare 20 is nigh!

April 23, 2011, by Eckolin

On April 29th, Ludum Dare 20 will begin!

Join the classic solo Competition and make a game from scratch within 48 hours! Who needs sleep anyway?

Alternatively there's the Jam, which allows for teams and has relaxed rules. Entries in the Jam won't be judged, but as an entrant you'll still be able to judge the Compo games. Even if you don't join, you can download and play the newly crafted masterpieces.

If you're new to LD, be sure to read the rules carefully. Voting for themes will begin soon, so make sure your favourite theme wins! And most importantly, have fun!

Ludum dare 18 - August 20-22 Weekend

August 4, 2010, by Rincewind

There will be another Ludum Dare game programming competition in the weekend of August 20th-22nd. You can suggest a theme here. There will apparently be some big changes over previous competitions as discussed here.

Have fun.

Chatroom temporarily out -> use #bilge2 instead

July 22, 2010, by (. )( .)

Invasion England has caused a horrible glitch in the matrix that causes everyone to lose their voice on #bilge. Don't worry though, us hackers have come up with a alternative solution to fight the evil system lords by creating a temporary channel: #bilge2.

Make being quiet all day your choice and join in.

Bennu Game Development - bennugd.co.uk

April 28, 2009, by Square

There is now a english forum for Bennu.

You will find here the latest news and builds for Bennu, coding help, a sumbissions showcase, tools and much more.

It's a lot better looking than the bennugd.org one and it's actually not spanish!! But seriously, it opens up Bennu support to a lot more people, and hopefully will inspire more people to use the great games-dev language Bennu.

Have fun!
