    My custom library for LD18

    This will be my second time entering Ludum Dare and again I will be using C++ with a custom library. Although this time my library supports Linux as well as Windows so if all goes well I should be able to make a Linux port :). The library is very minimalist supporting only coloured triangles, textured triangles and sprites for graphics which sounds very limiting, but it was perfectly adequate last time so I will stick with it :).

    The library is called Obelisk and can be downloaded from here.

    Other software I will be using:

    • Visual Studio 2008 for code
    • Paint.NET for graphics
    • sfxr for sound
    • HydraIRC for IRC

    I don’t have any strategies planned for making my entry or even any game ideas. Although I have been thinking that maybe instead of thinking of the game idea at the start, I would code up a bunch of different game elements and then figure out how to combine them into a game later.
