So for the theme i decided to intemperate it as you only have one job.

My game will be called “You Had One Job”

In it you play as a factory worker named Bill who is in charge of stamping the right labels on products as they go by a conveyor belt.

If you put the wrong label on a product you lose.

Without further ado, meet bill!

This will be my second Ludum Dare. And with a segue to the list of things everyone does:

  • Language:
    • Java
  • Engine: 
    • LibGDX
  • Software:

I have drop down menus made and can now begin working on some of the games actual mechanics.

Some Progress

Well I have the main menu done, time to work on the actual game.

Main Menu

My idea is to use the term second as someone that is below you in rank. In my game you are the CEO of a company and must control 10 individual managers of  various departments in order to lead your company to wealth.


Also they say dual monitors leads to increased productivity but so far it has lead to the opposite.


I also have a stream up at www.twitch.tv/daOyster

So everyone seems to be making a Workstation post…

I also have a laptop somewhere else too.

computer problems

My computer just decided that it won’t let me do anything or open anything so I restarted it about a half an hour ago. Now it has decided to try and repair itself and has been stuck on the windows 8 attempting repair screen for a half hour. I’m posting this from my tablet and hope I don`t need to attempt to make a game on an android tablet. Wish me luck.


EDIT: Well apparently after it ran for almost an hour everything is fine now. I just hope this doesn’t happen during the dare.

Those nights

Doesn’t everyone love those nights where you plan on learning something

or playing around with some code to end up on random tangents on Youtube or other random sites?

Well chalk this night up to one of those nights as it is now 3:00 AM here with nothing new learned.

And with that I leave you a Nick cage photoshop I made:

This is my first time doing the Ludum Dare and I’m looking forward to it.

I’ve read you should list your tool belt and everything else so here they are:

Java as my language choice 

Java 2D/libgdx depending what I decide to make

Bfxr for sound effects

Fruity Loops for music if I have enough time

Paint.net for art

Possibly other stuff I’m forgetting

Various Energy Drinks caffeine need I say more? And the compo starts at 9 pm for me.

It’s going to be a fun couple of days for me filled with lots of caffeine induced rage. I just hope I have a playable game at the end.

Good luck everyone!
