Gonna be going to a local meetup too. But here’s a picture of my home setup:

IMAG0178[1]
Tools:
Code: C# Unity3D (Probably in 2D mode though)
Art: Pinta
Music: SFXR, probably no music.

I’ve got all my ideas and stuff written down for each theme (bar 2 I’m stuck on).
I won’t even open up Unity until the theme is announced.
This is my first time using Unity in a game jam, so I’m a bit nervous. I still don’t consider myself that experienced.

 

Computer specs:
Macbook Pro 13″ Retina October 2013
4GB RAM
2.4ghz Intel i5
128GB SSD

Macbook pro 13″ Late 2012
4GB RAM
2.4ghz Intel i5
120GB HDD

Acer W3-810 Windows tablet
1.8GHz Intel Atom
2GB RAM
16GB SSD

Custom PC
4ghz 8-core AMD CPU
Ati 7850 1GB GPU
12GB DDR3 RAM
2TB HDD

32GB Nexus 7
32GB HTC One
16GB iPhone 5S

Depending on the game, I might port to Ouya + GameStick as well. Low priority though.

On a more personal note:

Ludum Dare has always had a very special place in my heart. This marks the 2nd year of my taking part. In fact, I started Ludum Dare on the 16th of December 2011, the same day that this one ends.
I knew how to code before I entered LD, but I’d never put it into practice. That day, I decided I was going to make it my hobby.
2 years later, I’ve held a job in the games industry, I’ve worked on multiple apps. I started my own business and sold games of my own.
I’ve exhibited at conventions, with my own company.
I’ve made so many friends in the developer community. I found one of my best friends through streaming this LD.
To say that Ludum Dare has changed my life would be an understatement. At the time I first started back in 2011, I was on the verge of suicide.
Ludum Dare saved my life. It helped me to discover a large part of who I am. It introduced me to so many great people in the industry.
If it wasn’t for Ludum Dare, I’d be a completely different person.

2 years isn’t that much time to some people, but I find it hard to remember my life before I made games.

Thank you to the people that organised this event.
Thank you to everybody here that takes part.
Thank you to every one of my friends that have helped me through so much these past few  years.
And good luck. You’ll do great.

Never stop making games.
