I’m down

This will be my first LD and I’m very much looking forward to it.

I spent the whole weekend fixing up my little Lua-based framework which I’ll be using for the compo.  I’ve made it available here: https://github.com/ianmaclarty/lotech.   It uses OpenGL (via glfw) and OpenAL for audio and has basic Box2D integration.  There’s no documentation, but there are a couple of sample apps (and hopefully there’ll be one more after next weekend :-)

I’ll be doing my development on Linux, but will generate Windows and Mac builds as well.

Other tools I might use: sfxr, Animoog (iPad app, for sound effects), Audacity, gimp, avconv (for generating a timelapse), vim.

    Good luck with using your own engine, I can only encourage that. I keep the fingers crossed you won’t end up fixing bugs here and there and there and here (like it turned out for me and my engine every time. I’m still full of hope that this time I will see the finish line! Cu there 😀 )

      Hey dertom, thanks for the encouragement. I did end up having to fix a bug with my .wav file reader, but luckily it didn’t take very long! Good luck to you too!
