I’m looking forward to what will be my first Ludum Dare Jam… potato or not, there are still many cool themes being voted on! Looking forward to what should be a weekend of good fun
Language (IDE): Java (Eclipse)
Music + Sound: Most likely going to use Audacity / FL Studio/ sfxr
Edit: I’ve now got two friends that want to be involved as well so Jam it is!
I`m in. Again.
And here is my plan for the weekend:
- Get lost in the eternal space
- Go through event horizon
- Stop existing
- Create a game
- Have fun
Create a game… Don`t forget to create a game this time… This is probably the hardest part of my plan but its fun anyway!
Now I’m writing small framework in python for pygame wich can perform basic scene management, collisions, animations, e.t.c.
UPD: Sorry for my broken english…
I’m in for my 4th Ludum Dare 48. Couldn’t take part in the last one due to Guild Wars 2 launch being on the same weekend but now the stars have aligned properly again and I can join in.
Since my 1st LD (which is the only one I actually finished in) my preparations have been, kindly put, lacking, but this time I’ve cleared the schedule done some quick mock-ups and gotten in to the dev mood, hopefully I can finish something working.
My tool set will be the same as for every LD so far:
- C++ as the language
- GNU (GCC & GDB) as tool chain
- Eclipse as IDE
- GIMP for “art”
- TuxGuitar & SFXR for making ones speakers cry
I’ve tweaked ( == stripped and “streamlined” ) my tiny little frame work which I will use as my base-code, and as the rules demand here’s a link to it: Link.
For “added value” here’s a picture of my desk,which isn’t that fancy (sorry for the bad quality, my phone is ancient):
Lets get ready to rumble!
I’m finally getting into the zone. I’m finishing the breeding mechanics and interfaces, and I’m getting many simple and good ideas for the game, and ideas on how to implement those.
In my current computer, it is not likely that I will be able to dedicate any work or graphics or sound, but it sounds like a fun game is brewing. Expect a prototype in a few hours.
By the way, has anyone else had issues with Eclise+Ubuntu? Whenever Eclipse autocomplete something for me, it loses mouse input, and I have to alt+tab to some other program before Eclipse can recover mouse input… it just happens on this computer with Unity, no problems on my KDE boxes. Anyone knows a simple solution?
Every time Ludum Dare comes along I always said I’d do it. But I never could get myself to sit down and do it. This time round is different.
I’m not doing the Dare, but I am doing the Jam. Mainly because I felt better coding a game with a friend; Dan Bell. For the 72 hours, I’m staying at Dan’s place, as it seemed easier to work in the same room than over Skype.
So far we’ve made pretty good progress. Dan came up with what to do very quickly. Basically it begins like an Osmos style game, you collect comets to gain mass, and once you have enough mass you can move onto the next stage.
In the second stage you need to build up an atmosphere, making sure you don’t get too close to stars and boil away all the precious water you may have gathered (Will need to look into the science a little more).
The third stage is similar to the second, you need to avoid getting too hot or too cold, so that the life that has grown on your surface can flourish and not freeze to death. Again, we’ll probably look into this more on the third day.
Today we started at 7am and have managed to get most of the first stage of the game done. Neither Dan or I are artists or composers so we’ll probably be skimping on this things until the last minute.
We’re using Playn for all the game mechanics and JBox2D for all the physics. Both of these have been working fairly well, but are poorly documented at times.
Graphics: Inkscape/Photoshop/aseprite; We’re not really decided on an art direction yet, but will use one of those, tools.
Sound: sfxr and Creative Commons License Music (Most likely) I can’t remember where Dan found a good intro song, will ask him tomorrow.
I’m shattered, so night!
Hi, I’ve been following LD during the last year and I’d always thought: wow, one day I’ll join, this is so amazing! I’d always liked games, but also create music and art, so game making is the perfect combination for me!:D Since I started to get interested about game programming I’ve tested a lot of engines and languages but finally I came up with java and I liked it a lot. I’ve been programming since the beginning of this year and I think I’m ready, let’s do this!
- Language: Java
- IDE: Eclipse
- Library: Slick2D
- Art: Paint.NET
- Sounds: BFXR
- Music: LSDJ or/and Ableton Live
Good luck everybody! And the most important thing: HAVE FUN!
