Hey guys,

I’m going to hopefully participate in the upcoming miniLD #25. This is going to be my first ever Ludum Dare, also my first development compo. :D
So, I ask you, veterans, one-timers, and generally developers, do you have any tips for a newbie like me?

Thanks in advance. :D

  2. One acronym: K.I.S.S.

    The most important piece of advice anyone can give you.
    Newbies always aim too high and have trouble finishing.

    Good tip: first make it “fun” using coloured rectangles, THEN make it “pretty”.

    And often, the coloured rectangles ARE pretty enough!
