EDIT: See there’s a lot of new comers in the declarations of intent. Here’s hoping we have a record number of entries! G’luck and please, treat the Jam as a safety net, aim for the compo!
This would be a clever pun if I was going to use Flixel, but I’m not.
After much humming and ha ha ha’ing. I’ve ditched my traditional C++ route for this LD48 and I’m going with Flex and FlashPunk.
Graphics will be IGNORED as far as I possibly can, because I always get caught up early drawing terrible sprites that I end up not using anyway. Once I have a functional fun game that is submittable… graphics will commence.
So here’s the obligatory list….
OS: Ubuntu 10.10
IDE: VIM (Vi IMproved)
Language: Actionscript 3.0
Tools/Libraries: Adobe Flex OSS SDK 4.1 & FlashPunk
Graphics Package : GIMP (& VIM for the extra masochism cherry)
Sounds Effects: Dunno, maybe /dev/urandom and VIM for even more self-flagellation
Coffee, Diet Coke, Pizza and other junk likely included.
No doubt a healthy dose of Guinea Pig intervention will also be involved.
Lets get it on.
