I’m very excited for the Mini-LD. As I said in the announcement thread, I will be working with my stuffed fox, Charles Feynman.
He is partly there for moral support and partly for me to bounce ideas off of. (I have some good ideas when I just sit and chat with him. Having someone/something that just sits and listens to you is great for brainstorming.)
I will be facing a fear of mine this LD: I will be making a side-scroller using pixel graphics. I’m terrified of making pixel graphics as I’m rather bad at it. That’s my task here.
It will likely be pretty simple, but it’ll get the job done.
I’m starting out by doing a warmup game using (As I’m doing in the Mini-LD) GIMP for graphics, sfxr for sound, Flex+FlashPunk for code, and I’ll find something for music.
For those who are curious, my warmup game is a side-scrolling hack ‘n slash about a fighter (One of two playable characters) trying to retrieve a Valuable Treasure from a dungeon, fighting goblins and orcs to get to it.
With that, I’m going to get to work!
