We describe ANGELINA-5, software capable of creating simple three-dimensional games autonomously. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first system which creates complete games in 3D. We summarise the history of the ANGELINA project so far, describe the architecture of the latest version, and give details of its participation in Ludum Dare, a game design competition. This is the first time that a piece of software has entered a videogame design contest for human designers, and represents a step forward for automated videogame design and computational creativity.
