Hello everyone, I’m very new here, I shyly see things from far since quite a long time…But I now really want to get involved !
I don’t know how everything exactly works but I’m gonna really digg everything next weekend.
With a bit of excitment and nervosity : Cheeeers !
So, My first attempt at Game programming coincided with Ludum Dare #22….Which also coincided with me moving back home from university for Christmas….overall -> massive challenge
My breakdown of events:
- I haven’t produced anything worth submitting – only got much of the backbone finished
- I have learnt a lot about the workings of C++ and the SDL library
- I managed to produced my very first makefile to automate building and debugging
- I have a basis for a game I have wanted to make for a while
- I might still have some time to finish in time for the Jam Deadline
Hi from @Zapakitul, Romania.
This is the first time I enter a Ludum Dare challenge, and boy am I anxious. I earn my living working as a Game Designer for Gameloft (been doing so for a year), but since I got my job, I haven’t been able to finish any personal projects/games. Ludum Dare represents, a great opportunity to boost my moral, as well as a personal challenge, so I’ll be looking forward to it.
As for the tools I will be using, guess I’ll stick to what I know best:
Language: C++ with the aid of DarkGDK.
Audio library of choice: Irrklang.
3D Graphics: Milkshape3D
2D Graphics: Paint.NET.
Level editor: Mapscape.
My work station contains a Desktop Computer (development), and an old Acer Aspire 5050 laptop for debugging, and keeping in touch with everyone on IRC/Twitter. Honestly, all I want out of this challenge is to finish something in this short period of time, and as a newcomer to it, I’m a little worried. I’m happy to meet and “compete” with all of you.
