    I finished early!?

    For the first time ever in Ludum Dare, I finished my game early. It’s called Last Minute Christmas Chopping, and you can check it out here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=398

    After wasting a lot of time yesterday on getting sidetracked with another game idea and not having any idea what to make, it all kinda just fell in place and the game got made pretty quickly after that. I got to learn a few new things (how to use Web Audio, and that Dart does VERY lazy field initialization), and I actually get to go to bed at a reasonable time after a Ludum Dare.

    I can’t wait to see what other games have been made this weekend. If you’re still struggling with yours, good luck, and I believe in you!

      I can’t see the source in the zip, it just has the whole game precompiled into js in 1 file.

      Hey Notch!

      Kevin here,
      I must say i’m still a noob at Game Dev. (even after 4 years of studying game design at a nice for profit school) :-P everyone makes mistakes i guess right?
      But I love video games and always will! This was my 1st Ludum Dare, and 1st Solo Game Design project ever but i had so much fun doing it. Besides making my game i spent a few minutes here and there peeking in on you ( although with the code i was lost ) always been an artist not much of a coder but hey gotta start somewhere
      anyway, thanks for believing
