Hello! Once again, I’m in for the Jam
I’ve participated in a couple of compos and jams before this one:
2.- I tried to make something for Mini-LD 29, but it was sooo boring that I did not bother to send it :-p ( here it is in case you feel like doing something boring, I still think the idea has potential, will look into it later )
3.- For LD 21 I did “Escaparazzi“, it did not get high scores on the compo, but this little piece of game, has taken me far (basically: I polished it a little, sent it to another compo, won, landed my dream job), currently I’m working on a extended version of the extended version.
So, my tools:
– Notepad++ I love it. period.
– Aria Maestosa, GXSCC, SFXR, Audacity, el-cheapo microphone, a sock. The most convoluted audio workflow EVAR. Somehow works for me: Compose in Aria Maestosa (or blatantly make cut-outs of sheet music I like), take each instrument to GXSCC, make it sound like I want, mix it all in Audacity, with all the effects and samples I want to add.
– Photoshop CS 5.5 too powerful compared to the open source options. I just can’t get used to any of the paid, free or open source alternative. (might try CS 6 Beta)
And that’s about it. Good Luck Everyone!
