    I love your sitting positions in this. *Slouched over* - *sits strait*- *leans back in chair*

    Anyways, i really enjoyed this game. My question is, how did you get the "Ninja rope" physics working?

    Thanks :) the ninja rope works by firing a ray from the gun position, if it hits something close enough it creates a small rigid body at the hit location and creates a spring joint between it and you. Then the arrow keys manipulate the newly created rigid body. It took a lot of trial and error to get it to behave and even now it feels slightly funny

    Hey, cool! I made a game for the Ludum Dare 20, too - it's called Tri. I had to put it in the Jam unfortunately (not in the Compo), because I had to download the FPS Character Controller from the Unify Wiki; there is a severe flaw with the script built-in in Unity. :(



    Nevertheless, great work as usual, quickfingers!

    I thought that was obvious? :) I use modo to do the modelling, Visual studio for scripting and cubase 4 to compose the theme tune

    Good work and an inspiration to us all.
    I couldnt master using the rope in the completed game so didnt get past the first bit (kept drowning).

    Would you be able to upload a non timelapse version to learn from.

    booty!

    I think you should be disqualified from ludum dare for the crime of cheating. It is clearly obvious the cat was helping you sometimes and did the bulk of the work.


    Joking aside, amazing performance and great game :)

    F*ck me gently with a chainsaw!

    You're a BEAST!

    Pretty cool, although my instinct input-wise was to hold down the button to remain grappled, not click to toggle. Clicking on and off makes it more difficult/tedious to do multiple swings.

    Anyway. Awesome stuff, as always. I would love more breakdown that's not the Blipvert version.

    Keep em coming!

    I agree... but this is still awesome, and great way of capturing the process :)
