I’m in! At least partly!

Accurate description of me at work.
Ludum dare time again! I’m excited to join, although I have many other plans this weekend, I’ll try to do it the best I can. The past two attempts at Ludum Dare, I failed. This time will be different, I’m sure of it. I’m much more skilled as a game developer, I’m currently working on a platformer I hope to finish by the end of the month. Just have to keep it simple, stupid!

Tools:

  • Java – I’m most familiar with it, and can crank out stuff pretty fast.
  • Slick2D – This framework helps me so much, gives me access to the 2D benefits OpenGL without it’s complicated stuff.
  • Photoshop CS5.5 – There’s free programs for doing pixel art, but I’m really comfortable with Photoshop, and plus I already own it.

I’ll be doing a time-lapse for what time I do work on it. No live-stream, that just distracts me.

So I guess I’M IN!

    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.
