The musings and creations of Cody Claborn

Hi! I'm a programmer currently living in Indiana. I'm passionate about video games, music, and how programming intersects the two. Here are the projects I've worked on along with tutorials and other various blog posts. More about me

Duality - LD34

Duality is my entry into the 34 Ludum Dare compo. The game was ranked 3rd in audio in the compo. You can listen to the track on my SoundCloud. It's a rhythm based skill game where you have to click the right mouse buttons on the right target. The game was made in 48 hours using HaxeFlixel for the game and Abelton Live 9 for the music. You can play the most recent version by reading more or checkout my original version on the Ludum Dare page. You can also checkout the source on my GitHub.

My Entry

The theme was Growth/Two Buttons

Duality was my first attempt at creating a timing based game. To achieve this I created a simple text data format that had information on the location, type, and time of each target. I parsed this file to create my level. I always enjoy creating tools that allow me to add more content without having to touch my code to prevent bugs from arising.

I would like to create a visual tool to help making levels a lot quicker. I need a better way to line up the music with the targets rather than using time. Creating some code that converts time into BPM to sync up the level better would have been a good idea.

Here are my final judging results...
