I want to introduce you my random content generators. They are all opensource and licensed under Creative Commons Licenses.
1) Random name generator
-> creates random unique fantasy names
-> sometimes also puts real words out (e.g. ‘cake’ or ‘faked’)
-> examples: lojuch; deric; lechod; sihur; timen
2) Random world generator
-> creates a random topdown world
-> parameters can be changed while generating
3) Random sentence generator
-> creates a random sentence
-> very helpful when trying to get a idea what to do next
– stupid ogre swings his axe
– hungry cow climbs a mountain
– innocent knight laughs
By the way: here is my entry to LD called ToastBiome.
Programs and tools I will use on my Adventure:
Framework: Stencyl -> sounds noobish, but the drag&drop scripting helps me to concentrate on the main issues
Concept: good old paper (about 1/2 year)
Music: Autotracker – random music is awesome!
Sounds: as3sfxr – randomness again
Textures: GIMP and maybe RunningBrushes – my favorite part!
Other: chronolapse for the timelapse ; LibreOffice to fix my language mistakes
This is my first ‘big’ Ludum Dare I do enter. I already entered 3 game making contests before (2 Mini-LD’s) and won 2 of them (not both Mini-LD’s). I’m planning on creating a working plan this time to make it less chaotic.
