I’ve decided to do this pretty last minute, and I I’m not really prepared. But, I really like the theme so I decided to jump in. :)
My setup is pretty much the same as last time (mostly out of necessity, since I don’t have time to figure out something else).
- Java with Eclipse.
- Paint.Net and/or Gimp.
- BFXR for sound.
- Audacity for music or sound editing (although I’m unlikely to get that far)
I already have a vague idea for my game, which I’m tentatively calling “Cave Creature”. Basically, you will be a creature… from a cave. You will “evolve” via an RPG-like talent system, and explore, and…. OK that’s as far as I’ve gotten.
I’ve been thinking a lot about RPG progression systems recently, and I feel like this theme fits that quite nicely. :) Although, I might spend more time iterating on progression systems than coding, which could be a big problem.
