As our artist was unable to join Ludum Dare this time around I decided to join the solo version “Compo” rather than the team based “Jam” that we have participated in previously. There are a few things that are different in “Compo”. First of all you have to do everything yourself, while you can use music and sounds (and even art) that you find online in the Jam. The time is 48 hours rather than 72 hours and finally you have to be alone, rather than working in a team. It was an interesting challenge and I am quite pleased with the result.
Valo/Varjo is a moody puzzle game where you control a being of light. You have an uncoventional weapon in the form of a sphere of light that you manipulate in order to kill enemies and solve puzzle.
