Two months since I moved to Singapore and is Ludum Dare time. Lets check how it is to participate from the other side of the world :)

I’ll be using either HaxeFlixel or Flixel. Sfxr to duct tape my lack of sound skills.

Please let me know if someone is planning a gathering in Singapore.

  1. Ah Flixel, brings me back to my Freshman year in College. I tried making a Beat-em up as my Freshman project. Flixel was a terrible choice of engines to use for that genre 😛

    Well, I would say if you think of something like streets of rage, flixel would fit. With more or less work of course.
    At least anything in the 8 bit era should be fine :)
    But I would probably go for something different to make a street fighter clone.

    • Collision detection in the game was godawful. The idea was that you were a kid in a museum and grabbing artifacts off the wall to use as weapons. Unfortunately, the game only had about 3 weeks of dev time and I had never used Flixel before. Plus I was too lazy to read flixel’s documentation and awkwardly re-invented scrolling backgrounds by moving a bitmap in the background and all the game’s sprites. It was a disaster, and I’m too embarrassed by it to show it xD.

      However, I still think the basic idea by setting a beat-em up in a museum has lots of potential. Maybe someday I’ll make an improved version of the game for the iPhone or something along those lines.
