Well, I wasted the first 15 hours of the Ludum Dare with an attempt at one game idea, but it quickly showed to be 1) a bad idea and 2) a huge bug I encountered prevented me from wanting to continue – I would wasted lots of time on the simplest bug ever!  After being fed up with this, I switched from Java into Dartlang.  I just started playing around with Dartlang a few weeks ago, and never made anything with it.  I thought “why not take a much simpler idea and just learn some Dartlang while trying to make it?”  And that is what I did.  I learned a LOT about the Dart language, but in the end the game wasn’t that good.

PARTICLE EFFECTS I’ve always heard many game programmers say “I LOVE making particle emitters,” so I thought I’d finally make one.  I’m now in LOVE with particle emitters – even the super basic one I made for this game!  They’re awesome!

 

Long story short: I’m not proud of the game I made, but I learned a lot about a new language (Dart) during the past 48 hours!  I know the game isn’t terrific, but I learned.
