    Hey all, I am JamesDM. I have never coded a line in my life. I have however worked with NegativeGeForce for quite a while, learning the ins and outs of game design. Through NGF I heard about Ludum Dare and decided I would give it a shot. I am downloading Python as I write this and will make an attempt to learn basic python, write and code a text adventure game before the deadline. This leaves me about 22.5 hours to complete this. Hopefully I can make the deadline and I hope to learn a thing or two and hopefully have alot of fun.

    Python is installed and I just finished skimming the documentation. I also outlined my game and have started working on the storyline.

    I’m still tossing around some ideas of how to use the minimalist theme to its full potential for this project. I went over some basic code with NGF and he helped me with some basic examples. Also, Dinner time…
