I’m in! 🐧

Haven’t missed a Ludum Dare since I started, and I don’t plan to start now!

Booked the Monday+Tuesday off work to recover too!

Photos of my battlestation usually go down well so here it is:

The image on the left is a lesser used area, for music making, and a pseudo-dock for my windows laptop + raspberry pi. Hence the messiness!

I have no idea what the theme will be, so I don’t know the tools. Here’s what I usually use:

IntelliJ for code, or VisualStudio Code. Vim if needed.

Logic Pro X for music, coupled with an 88-key MIDI keyboard.

Photoshop/Pixelmator for graphics. Blender if it’s 3D.

Unity, LibGDX or Phaser as a game engine, depending on the idea!

Paper and pencil for sketching

I have Windows, Mac and Linux machines too, I like to release cross-platform if possible!

I’ve lost count of how many of these I’ve done now, but it’s a fair amount, and I enjoy myself every time, even if the quality of what I create varies wildly. I’ll be working from home again, with beer, energydrink and junk food, also very little sleep. I tried the “take care of yourself” route a few times in LD and it always resulted in worse quality, so I binge now and take care of myself after 😛

I’ve learned a lot of new things since the last LD, especially a big focus on design + aesthetics. I’m hardly ‘good’ at it yet, but I’m at least better than I was.

I’m doing the Jam, but I’m doing it alone, just using it to give myself 72 hours rather than 48.

See you on the other side!
