Probably should announce this.

I plan to participate in LD23. Had such a blast last time and was really pleased with what I came up with, even if it wasn’t that good. This time I will be trying to create a 2.5d game using a custom engine I’ve been designing. Never know how these things will work out until you  put them in a game and see how they play. In case anyone is silly enough to try to learn an amatuer engine in one day and use it for the compo, here it is. Anyway, the tools:

Langauge: Java (so I can distribute the applet on the web, probably should just learn flash at some point)

Engine: Custom 2.5D engine (because I’m silly like that)

Graphics: Paint.NET (an old stand-by)

Sound: Audacity (I plan to make my own sound effects and then distort them to something hopefully cool)

Time Lapse: Chronolapse (though I can’t figure out how to get it to record just my second monitor. I may just have to write a script to trim all the images it creates so that it only shows the second monitor)

 

Good luck, everybody!

    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.
