Hello everyone!

This is my very first time participating in a LD event, so I don’t know how well it will go. I just hope to have enough fun and deliver an acceptable game by the end of the week-end.

I don’t yet know (by the time I write this post) what the theme announced will be, however I plan to work on a point and click adventure game. I will adapt it as I see fit for the theme itself. Due to real life misfortune I am left with a very old computer (from 2003) with very low specs running Linux, so I don’t know if I will be able to port the game to Windows in time (I might try borrowing a windows laptop just for the porting), so yeah.. this will be a 100% Linux game.

The game itself will be developed in C++ and Lua, I’ll be using a game engine called Angel-Engine (a really amazing engine for quick development/prototyping of 2D games, you should check it out) freely available (under BSD license) here http://code.google.com/p/angel-engine/ . I will also be using a boilerplate/library I’ve been working on for the last few weeks, it’s a library for point ‘n’ click (and visual novels/interactive stories) game development based on Angel-Engine. The code is freely available (I have not yet decided on the licensing but it’s either GPL or BSD so no big deal) at my github: https://github.com/Morgawr/Virtual-Click

The Virtual-Click engine isn’t finished yet, of course, so I will take the chance and see if I can get it to a finished/workable state during the Ludum Dare itself. It’s going to be a fun challenge.

I’ll be updating this post, as the LD compo continues, with screenshots, opinions, reflections and I’ll be listening to your comments and critiques to help me polish and develop a fun and entertaining video game. After this is over, I’ll try and stick together a small timelapse video: I’m going to capture a screenshot every 10 seconds using a small C program (using scrot) during the whole duration of the LD.

Thanks for reading this, hope it will be an interesting competition!

Cheers!

Morg.
