Mini-LD 18: Blind Date is the weekend of May 14-16.
It’ll last a total of 48 hours, but with a twist – 24 will be graphics, and 24 will be code.
At 7:00 PM Pacific Time Friday I will reveal the actual theme theme, so you know what graphics to make and what kind of basecode to prepare.
When you have finished your graphics, write a blog post with the tag ‘blind date gfx’ and a link to your graphics.
At 7:00 PM Pacific Time Saturday I’ll assign everyone who submitted graphics the graphics of someone else.
Submit your game to the submission page when you’re done. Submissions will close 7:00 PM Pacific Time Sunday.
2D graphics: Format as png/jpeg as appropriate, as well as including source material (xcf, psd, svg)
3D graphics: Include 2D png/jpeg renderings as appropriate so those making 2D games will be able to use your graphics, a .obj, as well as source material (3DSMax file, other 3D file)
When you’re coding your game, feel free to convert the graphics to whatever format you need – bmp, packfile, whatever.
Minimal vector graphics (lines, arrows, suchlike) are fine, as well as grabbing fonts from wherever you need (but avoid using text for graphics)
Regarding audio: feel free to include audio in your graphics pack! However, it’s fine to make audio during the coding time.
Let’s hope this goes as planned, and everyone who makes graphics also manages to make a game! 😀
