The final round for choosing the theme of Ludum Dare 29 has finished and the result is: “Beneath the Surface“. Interestingly, it was the only theme with accumulated positive votes (take a look: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ld29-theme-voting-round-5-of-5/).
I don’t yet what I will do, but I want to keep the game simple with just few commands (probably using only the mouse). I also think that, mostly people will go for the obvious representation of the title, which is doing something below the ground, with miners, plants or something in this line. Thus, I will think about other types of possible surfaces (e.g., the surface of an orange or the geometrical surface).
I will use this night to think in something.
