I am most assuredly in, and maybe some of my crew!

Hello all,

Having spent most of my time the last few Ludum Dares making technically complicated things, I decided this time to try something a little more artistic.  After seeing the amazing (and winner of the humor category last time) Billy McMath Solves Problems, I decided it would be fun to try something simpler and in a more storytelling style.

I’ve whipped up a starting code base that uses Django and MithrilJS to allow a simple binary choose-your-own-adventure style app.  Each story node has a blob of text, an illustration, and a voiceover, as well as two choices.  Clicking on either will take you to another story node and the story diverges the further down you go in the tree.  You can find the code here:

Tools of the trade this time will basically be the Django admin interface for putting in text, probably Audacity for editing voiceovers, and some kind of graphics program for doing crappy illustrations.  I’ll be enlisting the help of several friends to help with the story.

I’m hoping this will be a pretty chill Ludum Dare and as usual I’ll try to stream as much of the 72 hours as I can at http://twitch.tv/dvcolgan.

Party!
