I’m here, like it or not

This will be my third Ludum Dare.

I entered the previous two as ElectricSeagull, but I’m a bit tired of that name.

Since I’ve not done any kind of game development stuff since the last LD (that was a whole third of a year ago!?!) and I haven’t left myself any time to practice new tools, I’ll stick within my comfort zone, using Java, libGDX, Eclipse. I wanted to try out Phaser, but…

Nevertheless, inspired by the great key note speech, I want to push forward into some new areas for me and try and do one or more (or none) of the following:

  • hand drawn/painted graphics:
    Drawing and painting are things that I do, but hand drawn animation is way out of my comfort zone.
  • narrative:
    always something I ignore … but could be really interesting to explore
  • nice acoustic audio:
    I don’t play a musical instrument, but I can try some kind of sound effects
  • joining in, Twitter, the site blog, IRC, etc:
    I’m absolutely atrocious at social media (or anything at all social for that matter (I’m nice really, just shy, don’t hate me!))
  • not using Box2d:
    It’s a great physics engine and it worked really well for my last game, but I don’t want to rely on it for some simple collision system I should write myself.

That’s about it, thankfully. Good luck everybody and god willing a good theme.
