Soo looking forward to this LD, which is going to be my sixth…ish one! I have a big item on the agenda: self-improvement! In recent LDs, although it’s always been fun and I personally felt I learned a lot, ratings have been absolutely stagnant if not regressive.

This is also my first LD without my cat – she passed away not long ago and I miss her terribly.

As always, I’ll be making a game and all its assets from scratch, alone, and probably for the Jam because of horrible time management. My tools: text editor (Coda), Pixelmator, Audacity, Logic Pro X

Targeting this stack: web browser, HTML/CSS/JavaScript/jQuery, Three.js if 3D

And now, three public service announcements:

1) YOU CAN HAZ SOUND

Really, sound effects are not hard, and you can make them yourself if need be, you don’t even need a fancy generator website or anything. Just you and a microphone. Audacity is stupid simple to use. This will make your game literally 10x better! I made the background soundtrack and UI effects for Planet Improver with kitchen utensils and an old fan. It was a terrible game, but people thought it was atmospheric because of literally the shabbiest sound track imaginable.

2) SUPPORT MIKE (PoV) ON PATREON

Our benevolent dictator and site plumber is doing LD full time now, and he needs our help to do that. Give something back to the source for all the hours of fun, entertainment, learning, and camaraderie you experienced here. Go here and support: http://www.patreon.com/mikekasprzak

3) CONTRIBUTING FREE SOUNDTRACKS FOR YOUR JAMZ

Over the years I made quite a few tracks for Ludum Dare and other projects. I’m putting them online for anyone to use, so if you find anything you like: go ahead! :)
