I’ve dabbled with quite a few tools but now that I’m going to make a game for LD19 I can’t decide on which ones to use.
Also, should my game be 2D or 3D?
If it’s 3D I will probably use Photoshop, Unity, Sculptris and Blender (I’m more comfortable using Maya or Max but I don’t have a license for either so would be opting for the free/legal rout … I do have Photoshop though so will be opting for that over GIMP, although I do like gimp I’m just not as comfortable with it as Photoshop).
If anyone has a legit copy of Maya they want to part with for a very small amount of cash or free please drop me a line – Even a very old version would be great =)
If it’s 2D I am still unsure, I’ve used GameMaker quite a lot and would rather move on to something else for a bit. Also, I’d like to run the game in a browser without loads of hassle. So, I’m thinking Flash with FlashPunk, Flex and FlashDevelop (also photoshop again). Does that sound like a good setup? I’m downloading them now to try out and see if that will work for me. I probably won’t worry about audio for now but might add it after the compo if I like the game.
What’s the best tool for capturing a time-lapse?
