Few days ago I saw the Mini Ludum Dare #37 announcement, and started to think about whether to enter this and what not-game would I make. I had two topics on mind:
- My miserable life. Kind of an egoist topic, but nowadays I’m dealing with quite unpleasant issues. For example, recently my work schedule has been changed so that now I have significantly less time for software development and recreation, and to be honest, I don’t take it so easy…
- Asperger’s Syndrome / Autism in general. Maybe this topic would be more valuable than the egoist topic above, but the problem that I had no idea what not-game could I make out of it. I was thinking of joining forums to ask for ideas, but before I could get around to it, I’ve got more and more ideas for the other topic…
In the end, I decided to do the first topic, mainly because I feel like doing it, and currently I don’t really have motivation to do the other. So I’ll live out my egoism.
Actually, I’m not even 100% sure if I’ll do this. Maybe I’ll get up tomorrow and I won’t feel like to get into it, and so I won’t do anything in the end. Anyway, I have an other project which I should get on track with, since now I can only work on game development at weekends, and I’m being several weeks late with that.
By the way, this would be my first Ludum Dare entry of any kind, ever. Let’s see!
