    Alright. Had a good night sleep and woke up discovering this LD theme was ‘Escape’. I think I can work with that. Yesterday, I had my computer fully set up, ran some tests (currently I am having some sound issues, but I can work around that) and everything is ready to go.

    During breakfast, I contemplated what I should create this weekend and enjoyed the final scenes of the quite emotional finale of Australia’s Masterchef (season 1). Fully rested, fed and relaxed, I think I can safely start this marathon. With a ‘escapy’ idea slowly forming in the back of my mind, I have started my terminal program, logged into the necessary services and turned up the music.

    For my game, I will use Python with the Pyglet library. If relevant, I will design my levels using Tiled and load it into the game with the tmx-loader library for python (floating around on the Tiled wiki). Graphics will be done in Gimp and sound effects using the excellent Sfxr program. I have no idea what program I could use to alleviate my musically challenged brain, though. We will see.

    The command prompt beckons for my attention, time to go to work. Good luck everyone!
