Here is a post mortem for my LD#30 Compo entry: Connected Pylons
It was my first Ludum Dare contribution. Here in France, the start time was Saturday 3am, so Wednesday,

Finally, I gave up. At last I decided to use my time for fun and create an old school puzzle/arcade game.
And then, inspiration come, it was 4h after wake up!
At first, I created an empty project with Unity3D and put some cubes and spheres to visualize the concept.

enough time, I'll implement bad red guys.
