Hi, I’ve been following LD during the last year and  I’d always thought: wow, one day I’ll join, this is so amazing! I’d always liked games, but also create music and art, so game making is the perfect combination for me!:D  Since I started to get interested  about game programming I’ve tested a lot of engines and languages but finally I came up with java and I liked it a lot. I’ve been programming since the beginning of this year and I think I’m ready, let’s do this!

RECAP:

  • Language: Java
  • IDE: Eclipse
  • Library: Slick2D
  • Art: Paint.NET
  • Sounds: BFXR
  • Music: LSDJ or/and Ableton Live

 

Good luck everybody! And the most important thing: HAVE FUN!

    If you’re planning on using Java and you don’t have a host already, you might check out a project I’ve been working on, http://StaticVoidGames.com. It’s a site designed for indie game programmers using Java or Processing, with competitions like this in mind- just upload a jar and a thumbnail, and you have a decent looking website showcasing your game as an applet, webstart, and a downloadable jar- without wasting any time on web development. I’m working on adding tutorials and ad revenue sharing, but for now it’s at least an easy way to show of your game. Check it out if you feel like it.
