    A new challenger approaches…?

    OK, I’m entering my first Ludum Dare!

    My day job is working on a massive game, on a project with hundreds of people.

    Slowly.  Carefully.  Without breaking anything.

    So even though I’m a “pro” game developer, I’m pushing WAAY outside of my comfort zone.  This is the exact opposite of everything I usually do.

    If I can finish something – ANYTHING – in 48 hours, I’ll consider it a victory.  :)

    My tools:

    • Java with Eclipse.  I haven’t used Java in years, so this could be a disaster.  But I really want my game to be web-deployable.
    • I might use LWJGL with Slick-Util depending on the theme.
    • Paint.Net and/or Gimp for “programmer art”.
    • BFXR for sound.
    • Audacity for music or sound editing.
    • Pizza.

    I think my biggest problem is going to be art.  I don’t really like low-fi puzzle games and things like that, I want to tell a story and have characters.  Guess they will have to be stick characters.  :D
