It’s my first LD so I’ll be just jammin’ along for now.
I am going to use:
XNA / C# in Visual Studio Express for Code
GIMP / ASEPRITE for Graphics
sfxr for Sound
I got some sprite-strip and parallax background animation code lying around which I might re-use to save some time. I also might use Audacity for additional sound and MS Paint for simple drawing.
Bring in the kittens! (Please don’t…)
