Yes, the title of the post is a homage to the “Lorem Ipsum” – Text. And yes: I’m in for the second time. And as it seems with the same team again. I already can smell the aroma of deep fried potato strips… WHAT? Potato won’t be the theme? Mhh well okay. Anyway I’m really excited and I hope we will be better than the last time.

So let the game creation begin.

First LD – here I come!

So here we are my fellow game enthusiasts!

I participate for the first time in Ludum Dare, but got a bit experience at the last two Global Game Jams. I will meet up with two friends of mine here in Germany (Düsseldorf) and code the heck out of my machine. Well I have the feeling I will be the graphics-guy.
Some things I learned from the Global Game Jams:

  • Plan your game carefully – then cut half of the planned features out.
  • Define goals for the players. Our first game was nice and shiny, but there was nothing you could really do to “win” the game.
  • Don’t eat too much. You will feel sleepy and uncomfortable afterwards. But drink a LOT!
  • Last but not least: It’s not about the result. Game Jams are made for the experience you have during the event.

I am excited as hell though there are still 4.5 days left. And that’s fantastic!
So then… let the game creation begin! 😀
