Here’s the setup that I’ll be using this weekend for building my entry.
And here’s the specifics of what I’ll be using:
IDE: Visual Studio 2010
If I need to create pictures, I’ll use Photoshop (Vector Art FTW ).
I’ll also do a chronolapse of the whole thing as well (I’ll record at 4 frames a minute, but I might use less in the video or something )
As for type of game, I’m thinking maybe a simple RTS or perhaps a platformer.
