If all goes according to plan, I will compete again this time.
I’d really like to use HTML5/canvas on top of node.js and mongodb to do something web based with persistent content and/or multiplayer. So I will be doing a blog post on the subject of using those things together to make games.
However, if the theme doesn’t suit that set-up, or I have a 3D idea that’s feasible in the timeframe I’ll probably default to OpenGL/Java.
Last time I entered, I used .NET with the SlimDX DirectX wrapper. But that alienated too many people who otherwise might have given it a try. I think I’ve learned my lesson that unless my screenshot looks awesome, people are not going to bother with a download. I probably downloaded only 10% of windows games last time, and played nearly all the web ones.
