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.
