just so you know
the Jiggatrain has no brakes
unless the gubmint insists
but the crowd wants physics
and physics games
with eccentric humor
and lots of yelling
So, the time has come once again to get done in 3 days what would usually take 3 weeks. For those not in the know like I am, I’m talking about something called Ludum Dare.
Despite making the most confusing games, I never seem to get top scores in Innovation, mostly because the gudgrafix foolgarbage Hacker News businessmen, with coats hanging on their shoulders by the index finger, voting for the “free 2 play” theme, wearing jeans instead of long johns, not thinking alcohol is necessary during development, while instead thinking 20 seconds is enough to judge my games, or to read the manual that I actually bothered to write for once, or to even press the shooting key once, are sniping my scores.
So I’ve decided to take a different route, to aim for #1 in Humor. My tool will be the now-usual Flashpunk with frivolous abuse of function pointers, but my mindset will be different.
Which means watching twitch.tv/121jigs will be surprising and exciting like never before (which was last time when I was just testing things out).
