DDRKirby(ISQ) here — I’m happy to report that I will be IN for LD37, this time doing the solo 48hr compo!  This is my first 48-hour compo since Melody Muncher back in LD33 so I’m sure I’ll really be feeling the time pressure here (48 hours feels soooooooo short compared to 72 hours!).  This’ll be my 14th time doing LD — really starting to become a veteran at this now!

Last time around me and my friend got off to a false start but scrapped what we had and instead made Watch for Falling Rocks, a fun and light-hearted game about a princess defending herself from suitors by dropping heavy objects on them (it’s now available for iOS and Android, by the way!).

I used to set up goals and ambitions for myself for each LD, but to be honest, this time around my goals are mostly the same as last time — take care of myself, do a good job, and most importantly, have fun.  After competing in LD for the umpteenth time it sometimes is easy to forget about what we’re all really here for: because making a game is damn fun! 😀

This’ll be my first solo compo using Unity, which is exciting!  I’ll be making use of starter code, which you can find here.

Other than that, it’s the usual suspects:

  • Unity3D with C#
  • FL Studio for music and sound effects
  • LabChirp for additional sfx as needed
  • Aseprite for pixel art, perhaps with occasional support from GIMP for general image processing
  • Tiled and Tiled2Unity, if I need tilemaps

Good luck everybody!  Go and stock up on your supplies, food, and rest…I’ll see you on the other side!
