Hello all !
LD#20 will be my semi-first Ludum Dare. I took Mini LD #14 in 2009, which had to be played in team, as Tenoch’s partner. I discovered a lot of new tools (including the Lua language) during the week-end but we managed to produce something interesting. We had a lot of fun, I loved this weird geek creative contest. So, this time I do it in solo, but I just want to have fun coding something unusual during 48 hours. No huge ambitions about the game I will produce.
It’s not the first time I take a sleep-time-eating contest with nothing — except fun — to gain at the end: I did the NaNoWriMo last november. Was long, fun and good. You may try that if you are tired of code contests, it is also an interesting challenge. Or you may try that even if you are not tired of anything.
Here is the little checklist so I remember what software I shall open on saturday morning :
- Language & Library: Lua on Löve. I like this because
of the cute iconit is a powerful game engine, yet it is simple to use and cross-platform. IDE:TextWrangler for text editing. It was the lightest thing I could find that colored Lua source code.
- Graphics: paper, pencil, scanner, tablet and photoshop.
- Audio: little flat full of things that make little noises, little microphone, and Garageband.
Here I should put a photo of my cat, so that everybody would actually see this post, but someone else already had this idea… (and yes, my female brain noticed it immediately)
