Coming up with an original, witty title is a lot harder than it looks.

This is my first ludum dare, and I’m not sure if I actually expect to come out with a finished project. My goals aren’t that high, but I still anticipate I’m going to have a lot of fun. I’m using a language that I’m not entirely familiar with, but I’m going to have a great working atmosphere and lots of documentation.

I’ll be using:

  • ActionScript 3 with FlashPunk
  • sfxr and sunvox (a free music tracker) for sounds and music
  • mtPaint for graphics
  • emacs for, uhh, everything else

I originally planned on using Perl and SDL for this, which I have a decent amount of experience with, but I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get my game distributed in an easy format. I’ve jumped back and forth a bit between flash and javascript, and I have absolutely no experience with ActionScript 3. This is going to be fun. You know, I should probably go buy some snacks.

EDIT: Okay, I changed my mind. I’m using Python and PyGame, and probably Box2D. Worst case scenario I’ll use Lua and Love2D. Oh man, I really should have planned this out ahead of time.
