My turn! This is the first LD I’ve ever participated in, but I’ll save my introduction for your reading pleasure at my real blog.
I’m working on this with two other people and we were so convinced we came up with a good idea. I was too, until I saw another steampunk platformer. =P
Regardless, I’m sure we’ll come up with something at least mildly interesting. =D
Interesting thoughts and junk after the break.
As I mentioned, this is the first Ludum Dare of any sort I’ve ever participated in. I’m majoring in Computer Science but I currently don’t have a lot of experience in game development. Yes, that is part of the reason I’m entering LD in the first place. =)
We are indeed attempting a steampunk platformer, but there are various reasons that I think I won’t get the game done this first time around:
- Awesome teammates, but our schedules differ a bit and we won’t be developing past Saturday night simply because we have lives to live. Ok, more like homework to do. >_>
- I haven’t started any coding yet and I probably won’t be able to do any until 5:30 pm tomorrow.
Well, I suppose I should rephrase my earlier statement. I don’t think we’ll complete it to the extent we had planned this time around. A few ideas are floating around in my head now for finishing the game quicker, so we should still have something come tomorrow night. Very possibly early Sunday. Enough babble, time for me to get some sleep!
