    Our team is brainstorm at http://www.twitch.tv/syncarn. Oh, and since I haven’t posted it, here is my extremely messy desk and a giant rice krispie treat I bought as a reward for participating :)

    My PC is a $500 CyberPower PC from New Egg  and it’s perfectly powerful for all the games I’ve played on it.

    My Mac is a 2009 unibody MacBook Pro 15″ and is awesome.  I’ve gotten more work done on this computer than any other.  And it’s still awesome after 4 years.

    Ready / All The Gear And No Idea

    I have escaped to an empty house, and acquired fuel for the weekend…


    During a spot of attic archaeology, a giant old Wacom and functional recording equipment were unearthed – and miraculously made to work with a modern computer.


    Tragically I have little idea what I’m doing with any of it, so just expect my ‘game’ to be a lonely block that moves left and right, with little to do.

    Plan: Sleep for a few hours, wake up, check the theme, spend an hour or so having terrible ideas, sleep again (WORK SUBCONSCIOUS WORK!), wake up, make game.

    First Ludum Dare – BEGIN ACTION BECAUSE I’M IN

    For the first time, I’ll be giving Ludum Dare a shot! Since I haven’t finished a game in a whole eight or nine months and since the vast majority of my completed games were for competitions, I figured I’d be an idiot to pass this up. This will be the fastest game I’ve ever made by at least a day and absolutely the shortest jam I’ve been a part of. But I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun, even though my precious potato lost. Rest In Peace, friend. ;_;



    What I’m Using

    IDE: Stencyl (exporting as a Flash game)
    Music: Logic Pro 9, Korg M50 Keyboard
    Graphics: Photoshop
    Timelapse: ScreenNinja


    My Setup


    CoryMartin.net – You can see some games and music I’ve made there, if you’re interested!
    @KcoriM on Twitter – I’ll be posting progress updates and other cool jazz.

    Am I missing anything?

    I was never more ready for another LD.


    Are you ready? I’m ready.

    You better be ready.

    Introducing my team:
    AS3 feat. FlashPunk
    GIMP feat. almost-broken drawing tablet
    Silence feat. a few as3sfxr sound because I still suck at making music

    Introducing my workspace:
    This is the first LD I use my new setup in – the left two screens belong to a Ubuntu PC, and the other one is a Windows laptop. They are linked with an awesome piece of software called Synergy, which makes both computers share a pointer, keyboard, mouse, clipboard… it’s as if those three screens were one single PC. Running two OSes. At once.
    IMG_20130426_193856Ubuntu will be used for the main parts, such as coding and graphics, while Windows is used for music (pxTone) or level design (Ogmo) – thanks to the laptop, without losing time rebooting.

    Introducing the bunny:2779_499774300083242_504810386_nA day without a bunny is a wasted day.

    Alright, I’m ready. BRING IT ON, LUDUM DARE!

    I don’t know if I’ll have time tomorrow to check everything is working for the last time so I prepared my desk today and here is the result:


    I hope not to suffer from overheating issues during LD

    I’m ready to go, just need the theme ( by the way, vote “death is good”, I really like it :P)

    Good luck to everyone!

    Some pictures and other assorted links

    Since it’s soon time to start working on the real entry, I’ve decided to take the time to grab a few pictures and links before I start work.

    First off, a picture of the battlestation I will be manning during the upcoming event:

    I will be using the C++ code skeleton I’m currently writing a bit on, located on my github here. This code skeleton is built on my own entity system library that’s called Kunlaboro, and I’m hoping to have enough features in it to be able to create any type of 2D game by the time LD26 starts.

    I’ve tried a few music generators and found Sound Helix, one that gives pretty upbeat piano music with the example preset. To simplify everything a bit for myself, I’ll be taking those midi files and running them through timidity and ffmpeg to get some ogg vorbis files instead, since SFML comes with built-in support for playing such things.

    All in all, I’m hoping to be more prepared for this event than I was for the last three, maybe even get a basic Ubuntu system running so I have something mainstream to compile Linux builds on.

    Here’s hoping for an awesome weekend, and lots of comradery on the IRC.
    (Anan)Ace out.

    So, this is one of the places where potato games will come from  (click on images for larger size):


    Everything here is old or antiquated.

    There's always some sheet music on my desk. In this case, Taffanel & Gaubert flute method.
