8th Time’s the Charm!

I look forward to Ludum Dare more than any birthday or holiday. Here’s my “I’m in” post.

Except for the time that I participated while flying across the Atlantic, I’ve always livestreamed the entire process from start to finish.  For LD #28, I had tens of thousands of people watching me — and if you told me before all this that people would be willing to watch someone program in real time, I would have told you that you’d be nuts.  I guess maybe it’s just my audience that’s nuts.

Tool disclosure: Unity, Photoshop, Audacity, Blender, and possibly the A* Pathfinding library from Aron Granberg, which I still prefer to the built-in Unity pathfinding.  Additionally, I may use some code from my freely available Unity 3d tutorials. Specifically, I’m feeling a little “tilemapish”.  I’ve done a couple of multiplayer games in the past, and if I go down that route again I’ll likely make use of Photon.

BTW, for all you Indie Devs — I do game preview/review videos on YouTube. I have 140,000 subscribers and I love to cover indie stuff (primarily strategy, simulation, and RPG games for PC).  Email me at quill18@quill18.com if you have something you think I should see.
