I’m in once more.

I’ll post some pretty battlestation pics later.

This is my 6th LD! Can’t believe I’ve been doing it for 2 years.

I’m doing the jam this time. With an artist + sound guy, because I know when to stick to my strengths
So all that’s being used:
PC or Macbook.

I’m attending a local meetup. That’ll be cool, as always.
I’m writing some background code beforehand, that way I can focus on gameplay.

I have a lot to thank LD for.
When I started, I had a few years of dabbling with code under my belt, and barely any education (only UK highschool). I couldn’t find a job, even in the lowest paid industries. I applied for anything and everything, and I got nowhere.

LD made me focus more on programming. I knew I had it in me to be good, and I already knew a fair amount of Computer Science basics (like the concept of OO).

Cut to 2 years of 60 hour weeks later. I’m a fairly respected App + game developer. I’ve got a few indie games under my belt. Worked for 2 game studios, earn a comfortable living, and I’m almost completely swamped with contracts!

My life changed so much. So so much thanks to LD. I’m honestly getting teared up thinking about it.

Thank you.

Thank you all.

Good luck, and make games!
