    My first time entering!

    In fact this is close to my first time making a game. Let’s hope I can continue to get my head around GML at my current rate by the time Ludum Dare starts. I’m honestly more confident in my skills as a musician and graphician than as a programmer so my efforts will probably go mostly there, haha.
    At this stage I’m not sure if I want to do the full Ludum Dare or be a one-man jam team as it’s my first time. The real dare sounds more challenging, though…

    Wish me luck, guys!

      Dude, sweet art! Don’t worry, the Dare will be fine as long as you don’t do anything stupid!

      We’ve had people who are more artists win the whole compo before,
      (see- http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/author/saint11/)
      so who knows, you could still do pretty well on the scoreboards!

      • Cool, I guess Dare it is then! As the days go by I am getting very comfortable with GML anyway, but I lack some basic math skills so I’ll probably be leaning on a lot of Game Maker features. Still if I can make something pretty, go for mood / gfx / sound etc.
