    Getting ready for LD13

    Hi, I’m Dock, and I’m new to Ludum Dare!

    I’m going to enter LD for the first time this weekend, so this week will be spent mentally preparing.  I’m fairly new to this sort of thing, and I only completed my first game, Tumbledrop, a couple of months ago.  I’m more of an artist than a coder, but I’m working hard to improve my coding skills and something like this seems like it should be a lot of fun no matter what.

    I’ll be using Unity for the contest, and I’m hoping to do something in 3D, though beyond that I’m not sure. I’ll find out on saturday once I receive the theme!

    Until then, I’ll be sure to read Sol’s LD survival guide, stock up on food, and get some coding practice in.

      Welcome, Dock! Be sure to read mrfun’s survival guide as well, even though it is more tongue-in-cheek.

      It’s a fun contest, and it’s amazing when you see what individual programmers can make in a weekend. It’s especially amazing when you see what you yourself can make! Good luck!

      Meh, I’m hoping that these themes will spark something in me. I’ve been in a programming slump since my last game I released in August.
