  • RE: Lf Alpha testers (RTS/RPG)

    Thanks for listening Viejo! Your game is looking great, you got an upvote from me.

    I’d be happy to check it out too, although my queue is long and I am bad at playing new games in a timely fashion. Hopefully some other forum folks will check it out too. I’m sure some peeps in Discord would also like to see it:

  • Forum shutdown imminent

    Hello friend. Are you reading this? Or have you joined everyone else in Discord already?

    The LDG forum doesn’t get as much use as it used to. I still keep it in my daily-ish rotations, but new posts from you guys only show up once a month or so. Since we also have several Steam forums to maintain, it doesn’t seem worth the $$/month to keep this forum up.

    I’ll do my best to archive it. If we just “froze” it, we’d probably have to continue paying nodebb $$/month, so I’m hoping we can download an html archive. If that’s the case, I’ll do that. If not, goodbye forum forever!

    Anyway not that anyone’s here anymore ;) but I wanted to give you guys an opportunity to voice concerns, etc. To be clear the LDG community is alive, healthy, and also smart and attractive right here:

    Much love,

  • RE: Possible problem sharing.

    Man, the forum did not show me this in new posts, only just now finding it.

    Good stuff, yeah I looked into compression a bit, but of the two methods I tried, both added to the length instead of shortening it somehow.

  • RE: Lostcast 205: Year.remove()

    Their new pricing was surprising; I’m pretty sure we’ve been paying $35/month.

  • RE: Lostcast 205: Year.remove()

    Yeah, it’s a tough call. The forum was hit by spam recently. Threads that were once prosperous have now had no response for months. Also I’ve recently been told some people can’t post, but I can’t duplicate that problem, which is frustrating.

    Aside from the maintenance time, probably the only real reason to shut down the forum is the nodebb cost, but the Patreon is paying for that. So if the community wants it, I want it for them.

    That said I think your mentioning it here is the only feedback we’ve got about it :) IDK it seems like as long as there’s someplace to go (e.g. Discord) that people are fine. What do you think, should we keep the forum up or shut it down?

  • RE: Jamuary 2017!

    Well @richtaur has already stated that he would do a portrait of the winner like last year as well as give away game keys! Any sponsorship would be welcomed though! I’ll have to update the page as well as this post tonight so everyone knows how high the stakes are :)

  • Jamuary 2017!

    Update #2:

    One of our community members Elite offered to throw in 15$ to each prize pool for the jam! So currently the winner of each jam would get 25$ worth of steam games of their choice! Thanks Elite!

    Update #1:
    Good morning friends! The lost decade games official Jamuary™ has begun! Unfortunately the ball in time square wasn’t the only ball that was dropped last night, as I haven’t updated this until right now 10 hours after the Jam has begun, and for that I am eternally sorry.

    The following are the poll results as of 1/1/2017 @10:45am CST:
    What should LDG’s month long jam Jamuary consist of?:

    A traditional Game Jam?:

    12 votes
    A creative jam where any creative entry is allowed including games?:

    11 votes
    What should the theme of LDG’s Jamuary jam be?:

    LDG in general: Anything related to LDGs games, podcasts, etc…

    12 votes
    The titles of LDG 1st party games: Lunch bug, Onslaught!, Crypt Run, AWL, etc.:

    4 votes

    4 votes
    A game about a Lost Decade:

    4 votes
    A traditional Game Jam, as well as a creative jam where any creative entry is allowed was neck and neck. I’m all for democracy but it seems like winning by one vote is kinda cheep, so I’m making a managerial decision that A creative jam where any creative entry a is allowed including games. Please submit any music, art, creative work of any kind except games please post here on the forums. For game submissions please post them here:

    The theme will be LDG in general, as it was the winner by 3 times it’s closest competitor. I’m all about mixing things up but 3 times the votes is tough to make exceptions for.

    Submission rules and prizes:

    Basically submit any games to the game jam page:

    And any other art works here on this forum page:…​

    You can vote on and participate in as many ways as you’d like as long as it’s before February 1st 2017 @ 12:00 am.

    Prizes have been generously offered by Matt and Geoff from LDG in the form of keys to their games, as well as a commissioned portrait or avatar artwork similar to last years. There will be one winner from the game jam and one winner from the art contest at this point. I’ll confirm more deets from the big guys regarding exactly how many winners they are willing to support. I will personally donate 10 bucks to the winner of each jam in the form of steam games. After you are declared victor amungst your peers we can work out how to get you the 10 bucks worth of steam games of your choice.

    Okay friends please let me know on here in the community section, or on the forums page, or in the discord if anyone has any comments, concerns or complaints.

    Best of luck to you, and have fun jamming!

    Happy Jamuary!!
