Dearest of couples, ready to do coupl-y stuff, for the sake of a game!

These two characters will be the two characters in my game. As of now, the plan is to make it so you control our lovely redhaired friend, and provide guidance to our fabulously dressed purple friend.

It’s been a while, but excuses to make games don’t get much better than this.

In fact, just to make sure I can’t worm my way out, I’m running a real world gathering. No escape! (Any of you in the Coventry area, be sure to hit up Warwick Game Design!)

Programming: Actionscript, extended with Flashpunk, all done in FlashDevelop. Flash will never die!

Sound: FL Studio will be my partner in composition, with maybe a bit of BFXR.

Art: A quick trip through Ludum Dare’s wonderful Tools page introduced me to Graphics Gale. Been working on a far simplified pixel art character style, so I don’t spend half the competition doing animations like last time.

Behold! Yes! A puppy!

Nourishment: I’ve booked myself in for supervising the meetup 1:00AM-1:00PM on both Saturday and Sunday, so copious amounts of pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and jelly should be packed.

Have I mentioned how simply incredible jelly is (Jell-o, for you people across the pond)? Cheap to buy, simple to make, easy to forget, easier to enjoy, and I have gotten over countless blocks by simply wobbling the jelly until I figure out how to solve a problem.

Simply mix one part flavoring, one part gelatin, five parts pure uncut therapy.

This should about cover it for me. Keep up the “I’m in” posts, everyone, and have a great competition!
