Good morning everyone, and good luck to those who are in this competition!
I was planning to get to sleep early, but I was awake until 3am, only 2 hours before the start of the competition.
And after only 3 hours of sleep I was up again, Christer Fuglesang, Swedens very own astronaut, was about to be blasted into space, for the second time, and I couldn’t miss that. Went to bed shortly afterwards but couldn’t get back to sleep. So I started to code on my little entry.
It’s been two hours of coding and drawing now. I decided I wanted to code my entry in Ruby, my favourite language. I’m usign the Gosu module for graphics and sound. I haven’t used it in the past, except for quickly trying it out, so I’m a bit slow since I have to look everything up. But I finally have a scrolling background and a guy riding a bike wearing a tophat and a monocle!
My entry is called Mr Monocle And His Marvelous Madcap Underground Race
In it, you are Mr Monocle and you are riding a bike in an underground cavern. I’m planning to throw in some rubies for the player to collect and some bats and mining carts and whatnot.
And for breakfast I had two sandwitches, an energy drink and a cup of tea. A timelapse movie is recording this while we speak.
Now to figure out how to attach images to these journals…
