Ludum Dare #30 – 22 to 25 August – Indiesquish Style!

July 17, 2014 in Site by admin

Every so often, the Squishies stop playing games for three days and instead make one! We have entered the Ludum Dare Jam twice before as a community, and on 22 to 25 August, we’re going to do it again. How it normally works is that we make voxel-styled games, with all the assets built in Minecraft, on our server, as a group. Anyone’s welcome to participate – you don’t need to be a master builder or Picasso or whatever, just someone on our whitelist with a love for creating stuff.

Ludum Dare is a game jam – an event in which individuals or teams get a limited amount of time to make a whole game from scratch. The team competition has a three day time limit.

Check out our two previous entries:

Lepton’s Quest: http://indiesquish.com/leptons-quest/

Jetpack Jester: http://indiesquish.com/2013/04/29/jetpack-jester-indiesquish-ld26-jam-entry/

And here’s Big Dave’s review of Lepton’s Quest, just so you can see more or less what the end result looks like.

Autism and Online Bullying

March 30, 2014 in Site by fauxx

Hey all, bit different post here today. As some of you may or may not know, April 2nd is International Autism Awareness Day. I’m here just to say a couple of things about Autism and bullying, both online and in the real world. First off, I just wanted to say thank you to all of those with Autism for being such amazing people. Over the last several years, I’ve volunteered at numerous programs for Autistic children and it has really been life-changing. The kids I’ve worked with have all been incredibly wonderful and I’m truly glad I was able to meet and talk to them. However, some of the kids told me stories of things that had happened at school. Being teased about something they had no control over, being laughed at, picked on. Bullying is something we never really think about until the victims are right there in front of us. I know “Cyber-Bullying” is something that some people may think of as a joke, but the actions of the bully can be just as bad, if not worse when done over the internet. This is why, on April 2nd, and every day following, I’m asking that you help take a stand against bullying. It can even be as simple as asking someone how their day is going. Some people feel so alone when they’ve been bullied for so long, a bit of friendly contact can completely turn their day around.

Here on Indiesquish, we strive to make sure the players we cater to are taken care of. Our servers will always be a safe and friendly place for anyone to play on, no matter what they may be going through.
