I made a new game this weekend!  It was for the mini Ludum Dare #7 competition.

I had 48 hours to create a game about the theme Cryptozoology.  I decided to make a little puzzle game:


You can download the game here:

Works for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (source available as well.)


You’ve received 4 scrambled images of possible cryptids:

Use your Crypto-Computer ™ to unscramble them!

You have 1 minute to complete your task before the
evidence is lost forever. You will receive a
30 second bonus for each cryptid you discover.

Each cryptid image is made up of 4 individual pieces.
Unscramble each cryptid by clicking on the numbered boxes
to rotate a distinct piece of the puzzle image.

* Left mouse button for clockwise rotation.
* Right mouse button for counter-clockwise rotation.

0:31 left :D

Did you use a special tool to generate the sliced images?

Just Photoshop.  :) 

I would draw a rough image first on one layer and then use four more layers to breakdown the image into slices.  I think I've started working out a lot of how to control the difficulty and this concept but it is a little time consuming to generate the images.  This game turned out better then I thought it would.  Strange thing about a puzzle game like this is that I had no idea how hard it would be or how fun it might be because I knew all the image slices.  So, basically I had to have some good quick feedback from people before the deadline.  The feedback helped me order the images roughly easy to hard.

Thanks for playing!
