    So a meme really took it eh?

    It’s a nice open ended theme, but I can’t eek out a creative or gimmicky design around it. So as per the usual I think I’ll use the LD as an¬†opportunity¬†to test out some technologies I’ve wanted to play with (Flashpunk and Flint. Also buffering inputs). Going to go with a simple side scrolling feline beat em’ up. Something pretty similar to Dad N’ Me.

    A snapshot of my inspiration

    Totally a brawler



    How do you creative folks manage to knock out non-derivative LD titles anyhow? I need help working my creative muscle.


    • Photoshop and Paint.NET
    • sfxr
    • Likely some sort of online music generator (http://www.earslap.com/projectslab/otomata possibly)
    • Flash CS4
    • Flashpunk and Tweener(unless Flashpunk has some built in tweening methods) for my libraries.
    • Flash Builder
    • Chronolapse – Yay timelapse!

    Any suggestions on good sprite sheet / pixel art tools? Should I use Graphics Gale?

    Oh, and a parting workspace snapshot:

    I had a choice between cleaning my workspace area, and sleeping. Which of the two I chose is self evident.
