Hello, you fine ladies and gentlemen! This is a post showing my intention to enter this weekend’s competition.
For the past 7 Ludum Dares, I used AS3 and FlashPunk. My first LD, number 19, was my first time making a game with these, and I learned a lot in just these 48 hours. And I want to do this again. So, this time, I will just use something I have no idea about.
I’ve coded some Android games before, but I really want to try something out with a controller, and Ouya is a great platform for this (since other there’s no major consoles with good homebrew support right now, and not everyone has a PC gamepad). So for this LD, I’m thinking about creating something for Ouya (and port it to PC post-compo so more people can play it).
Ever since I finished school, I’ve been lacking motivation to code on games for more than half an hour straight – and in the past, Ludum Dare always pulled me back in, so I’m looking forward to it!
