Drifting Huskarl – Ludum Jam edition

Drifting Huskarl – Ludum Jam edition

Well, we did it. We made a game in 72 hours.

The theme we were given was “Alone”. So we made a roguelike survival game. The plotline: you wake up on a spaceship with almost no life support. Your goal: survive, and maybe (if you’re incredibly lucky) reactivate the helm computers.

Windows version
Mac version
Linux / Source version – to get this to work on Linux, install the LÖVE engine, then run “love driftinghuskarl_ludum.love” in a terminal.

Still contains a fair few bugs and glitches. But hey, for a three-day project I think it worked out surprisingly well. We’ll probably keep adding to it and building on extra features and so forth.
