Game for Ludum Dare 35: Morpherhead

Update 10 May: Morpherhead ranked #7 in Innovation category, #14 in Theme category, and #87 in Fun category, out of 1594 Jam entries!

Thanks everyone for these great ratings, as well as your positive comments on the game's page. They really mean a lot. Hopefully this game will see some more development put into it, and maybe we will be there for the next LD jam too.

Ludum Dare, an immensely popular gamedev competition and game jam, ran during the past weekend. The theme was Shapeshift.

Seeing how I always wanted to take place but always postponed it, I took the chance this time and made a little game: Morpherhead.



You can see the jam entry and download the game on the game's LD page.
I have also uploaded the game on Game Jolt here.


Shapeshift was not an easy theme for me. I spend a whole day without having a game idea that I liked.

On Saturday afternoon, I finally had a good (i.e. weird) idea shaping up in my mind, and by late night (really late) this thing came out:

By Monday evening I developed and cleaned up the game, and had a small stage ready to play through.

The game was submitted one hour before the deadline, but I believe it looks pretty nice and not so rushed.

Ludum Dare 35  is now closed for entries, and users will be rating the games for the following 3 weeks. It was a great experience, and I 've already seen numerous other great games submitted, which makes it nice to think I was part of this competition.

I wish the best of luck to everyone, and I am eager to see the final results and the winning games.

Barbara vs Zombies

A few years back I made a game, Barbara vs Zombies, for my then-girlfriend Barbara. She used to like an old light-gun game, House of the Dead , so I depicted her dodging and shooting zombies in this one. Included a backstory with silly romanticism, cats, and inside jokes. It's been nearly a year since we broke up, and this game has been sitting forgotten in my hard disk. I eventually decided it shouldn't go to waste. It is, after all, a game meant to remind us of happy times. Download and play the game on Gamejolt  or itch.io . I had made an Android version too, maybe I'll get around to publishing it someday. Hang in there, 2020 was a tough year, but you've made it this far already, so congrats. 💖 -Kostas

Aircraft maintenance simulator & VR game projects

Since the start of this academic year I've been enrolled in a Computer Science postgraduate program. I have found a couple of my semester projects to be noteworthy, so I thought I should post about them.

Ludum Dare 44 (late update): Alleycat Faust

Two months ago was the time at which the Ludum Dare 44 gamejam took place. It's been 2 years since I took part in a gamejam ( Global Game Jam in 2017 ), and 3 years since I took part in my first Ludum Dare ( LD35 in 2016 ), so it was about time I re-lived the experience.
