This will be my first LD, looking forward to it. I want to get coding already.

I’m planning to build a very cut down sprite engine using C++ and OpenGL/GLUT. The engine I have already is a bit heavyweight for that sort of stuff, so I’ll start from scratch but aim for the same style and structure.

Now time to stop being a big lurker and head into IRC.

Tools I’ll be using:

Programming:
vim for editing
git for version control
XCode (C++) as a build system and compiler
Visual C++ 2008 for the Windows port
OpenGL, GLUT and OpenAL as libraries

Graphics:
Photoshop CS for generating content
make + ImageMagick for batch conversion to a more useful format

Audio: (if there is time)
Reason 3 for music
sfxr for sound effects

Community:
I’m planning to record a timelapse video over the weekend using this technique.
Fingers crossed I’ll end up with a nice and reusable sprite engine at the end of it. The plan is to continue developing it for my own projects, future LDs and keep the latest source available.
