Hello world! I decided to quit lurking and start coding. I actually decided it yesterday, so I don’t have any tools or framework ready. Whoops!

I’m not really super-seriously trying to achieve anything cool, so my goal is to get something working during the Jam. But making an account and posting about it might turn out to be a good motivator, as I’ve spent many Ludum Dares thinking about making games and doing nothing creative 😉

So, I’m trying to build something playable in C++ with SFML 2.1. I code with Qt Creator, though no Qt in this project. For graphics I think I’m going to use either Photoshop or Inkscape, also found this nifty tool called ShoeBox that looks great for fonts and sprite sheets/atlases and whatnot. For sounds and music I settle with free stuff that’s in the net, such as Kevin MacLeod’s awesome tunes. So much coding to do that I might end up lacking in the art department…

Anyway, armed with a barrel of coffee and no ideas whatsoever, here we go!
