I’m in! – Declaring my libraries

I’m proud to announce that I’ll be able to compete in theĀ  Ludum Dare 24 compo. I will be using someone of my own libraries, and as such, they are, open-source and free for everybody to use. You can download/gawk at/go to praise them here.

You may have noticed something about my libraries. They’re for the command line driver “ncurses”. That’s right, I’m going retro – this is going to be a command-line entry. I may use SDL for sound if I have time for that, but that’s the plan. Anybody who wants to watch me work during the compo can catch me on IRC with the nick “oldtopman”. Binaries will be released for Linux 64 bit, then cross compiled as soon as I have access to my other machines.

Also, for the first time, I will *not* be hosting other people’s entries. Dropbox has a fully functioning web host function, and their uptime surpasses mine by miles. If you need some help setting up Dropbox, or if you don’t have an account, sign up here and find me on IRC.

Happy coding,

    Thank you for sharing Dropbox with me! I had been worrying about where I would host my game but now I no longer have to worry as I have figured out how to use dropbox for just that! thank you!

    Just a small update, but I have been persuaded to jam with the marvelous Jamie Bell, and as such, there will be epic music in the game!
