So here I am ready to add to the pool of “it’s my first LD” posts. Then I start scrolling through the things other people are working on… and woah. There’s the intimidation factor. Love it though. : )
I’m from a web dev background – okay that’s a lie. I’m from a communication studies background, but realized by my last year of school that I didn’t care for any of the career opportunities in my field, started taking some e-commerce electives and created an independent study in web-technologies. Long story short, I did some crappy jobs at ridiculously low rate, leveled up, and now do web-dev (almost exclusively back-end) full time.
I have not made a ‘game’ since we had to get those graphing calculators in highschool and they turned out to support BASIC like programming. I’ve talked about it a million times, but, well, I haven’t written a book yet either. ; p So I decided to do LD #24 to give myself some “sit down and do it” motivation. And also an “no see I have to work on this today, I’m doing this thing!” excuse. I’m thinking I’ll need more than a little practice time before that though.
Maybe I’ll have to do MiniLD #36 to get my feet wet.
