    I’m in!

    This will be my LD. I’ve only built a handful of games (iOS, flash, etc), but I have about a decade of Actionscript experience, and a love of old arcade games.*  I’m super excited!

    Language: As3
    IDE: FlashDevelop
    Graphics: Photoshop, Illustrator, Pixen
    Audio: sfxr
    Extra Libraries:  Likely Flashpunk and Green Sock’s TweenMax

    I’m going to try to set up a time lapsed screen recording to show my progress. But unless I can figure out how to get it working right on a mac, I may not want to use up any extra system resources.

    *Here’s what my arcade currently looks like.

      A very simple shell script to capture the whole screen in a defined interval would be something as follows:

      #!/bin/bash
      screencapture -t jpg “PATH_TO_SAVE_IMAGES/$(date ‘%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S’).jpg”
      sleep TIME_BETWEEN_CAPTURES
      sh $0 # script reruns itself

      Save as textfile and start it from the console with

      % sh timelapse.sh

      to run it in an infinity loop.
