… create a game in 48 hours!
I recently reduced my fulltime position to a part-time job, to start my try as a somewhat more serious game dev. This is 4 months ago. Now, after releasing my first game for android and several prototypes (I whish I was able to finish more of them to a game!) I feel like I have enough routine to take part in ludum dare for the first time.
I will be using the great Entity-System-Framework Artemis (if you haven’t thought about Entity-System-Frameworks for game development check out their references) and libgdx. This means I will work on a PC and an Android version. I might port everything to html5 next week. I haven’t used libgdxs HTML5 target yet, so I don’t know how much work it will be – but it would surely be a nice thing to have. Other tools I use will be Gimp2.8 (Much better since they have the one-window-mode) and inkscape and of course good old eclipse.
I am currently trying to figure out if I should manage my sleep (which is somewhat difficult given the starting time of 3AM here in Germany) or if I should just keep working until my sugar-free energy drinks run out.
However, I wish us all much fun and great games!
