Hello everyone!  This will be something like my 7th Ludum Dare.

I will be streaming the entire time on my channel, twitch.tv/dvcolgan.

Tools:

My engine is the culmination of my recent investigations of Entity Component System architectures.  I plan on expanding it as I use it for more games.

And the obligatory workstation picture:

My Workstation

Things I have learned from past Ludum Dares:

1. Don’t be too ambitious.  My last submission was an MMO.  It actually was finished, but it wasn’t very fun and I didn’t really have any time to test the mechanics.  My goal for this Ludum Dare is to have the main playable game done by the 24 hour mark.

2. Know your tools well.  A mistake I have made many time is using an engine or framework for Ludum Dare without practicing with it.  This time I will be using HTML5 Canvas, which I have worked with for quite some time now.

3. I wanted to have a 3rd.  But I couldn’t think of another thing I learned.  Good luck everyone!
