Oh, I’m ready–or almost I guess.
My (very dark (thanks camera!)) work space is all ready:
My couch is ready for a quick nap if my eyes get tired:
My kitchen is equipped with both space for thinking and water for drinking (until my pizza is delivered, which hopefully is before 9!)
And Shuma-Gorath is guarding my bed, claiming, “WASTE OF FLESH!” Not sure why…
Oh my. It’s not even 11 P.M. EST and I think I have the game jam giggles…
In seriousness, I’m so excited because for the first time in months, I’m doing some hard, fast, difficult, and challenging, but it’s also something I WANT to do. I don’t HAVE to do this at all, but really WANT to. All I hope is that the theme doesn’t make me want to drive home and retrieve my temporary Oculus Rift, which would probably be bad anyway since (nearly) no one would be able to play it. And don’t worry — not that anyone is, was, or will — I’ll do more game-oriented posts as soon as the jam actually starts.
Oh, I guess this means I’m in as well *shrug*
As for tools, using Unity, but not going to predecide any toolsets before hearing the theme. Even deciding a toolset early can sometimes influence the type of game and frustrate me if it doesn’t fit the theme.
Good luck everyone!
