    I should be sleeping, but I’m not!

    2:30 am. 1.5 hours left until LD #21 begins.

    I’ve prepared my recording tools, set up a blank new project in eclipse, and I plan on staying up until the theme is announced. Then I’ll get some sleep and let my dreams invent games for me, and get cracking tomorrow when I wake up.
    Exciting! Fun!

    As usual, I will be making games from scratch in Java.
    I’ll use Eclipse, Paint.net, and quite possibly SFXR.

      Good luck. I think I’ll let my dreams help as well.

      Ever try lucid dreaming?

      I suppose it wouldn’t be possible to learn immediately but getting into the habit of checking a digital time piece (usually a watch) twice will help you learn to know if you are dreaming. If the watch changes a ton between the two checks, then you are dreaming. Have fun :)

      Wonder if You can do it? @Davidlewing While its true that lucid dreaming would be great for this it takes months of hard work to get it perfect.

      @Skeaxaxis1080 Yeah, I figured it was useless but he might get lucky… :)

      I have been working on learning lucid dreaming but I have only gotten it a few times. :(

      You’ve better use the newest eclipse. And use Java 7 to take the curb of your celebrity status away (Java 7 is out but not the recommended version yet).

      And since you might actually read this… Mojang should livestream some video game fridays and some indie games that need love.
