Getting Ready, I Am In!

This will be my 6th Ludum Dare, and 2 year anniversary of my first attempt! As always I am pumped! I’ve been spending this weekend rewriting the framework I prototyped and hacked out last LDJAM. Here’s what I am using:

  • Language: C#
  • Frameworks .NET/MonoGame/Coldsteel
    • Coldsteel is an engine/framework/library? I am building on top of MonoGame to ease the amount of coding I’ll need to do during the competition. I like reinventing the wheel because I learn a lot about the structure of such things. In keeping with the rules, it is freely available to everyone¬†here if you want to fork and live dangerously…
  • Editor: Visual Studio Community 2015
  • Graphics: Gimp, Paint.NET, Inkscape, MSPaint, Spriter
  • Audio: BFXR/SFXR, Audacity, LMMS, Bosca Ceoil

I may try out a few additional Audio/Graphic tools depending on how things go. I also have a new rule for this LDJAM: Absolutely no alcohol. I’ve tried to employ this as a creativity enhancing tool in the past and it has not gone well.

Good luck to everyone participating! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with :-).
