    My first LudumDare

    This will be my first time entering LD48, I have very little game programming experience but my major downfall is that I always start projects and then abandon them, with LD48 I will have to come up with an idea quick and stick with it, I cannot stop “because I cant decide to if to use LWJGL or Java2D” or because “I cant decide on an art style”, I have to just go with it and finish something. I cant wait to begin and have my misses on coffee and snack duty for 48 hours :D

    I can be followed tweeting throughout the 48 hours @wookoouk

      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.
