Last-minute blogpost go!

Hey, I’m preparing everything atm so let’s keep this short.

So I’m participating for the second time now. My first time was LD23, where I made Inlander. I kinda underestimated how much time I had. I didn’t put everything I wanted in.

This time I’ll try to make something simpler. We’ll see how it goes. It’s for the fun, anyway.

As always (=previous time), I’m going to use LÖVE as framework, Sublime Text 2 as code editor, Adobe Photoshop CS5 as graphics editor, and hopefully I’ll get some sounds from sfxr. I’ve tried to learn to make music, but I just don’t think it’ll work.

To everyone else participating, good luck and have fun!

My entry revised

So I’m in for LD23.

This entire week I’ve been warming up; Learning the basics of terrain generation, checking my tools, learning how to use Chronolapse and sfxr and making plans.

As I said before, I’m gonna use LÖVE as framework (which uses Lua as programming language) and PyxelEdit for the graphics.

Chronolapse is gonna make a timelapse for me, the whole 48 hours. (Yes, I’m gonna try to stay awake the whole time. It’s probably gonna fail and I’ll sleep about 5-8 hours.)
sfxr for the sound effects. I’m probably gonna generate tiny sounds for the music which my game will play at given pitches and times.

I’m also gonna use a piece of code from Maurice (the maker of Mari0) for the physics, which I’ll probably gonna modify a bit. You’ll find his code in physics.lua if you download Mari0’s source code.
Also, if I can apply terrain generation, I’m also gonna use this snippet of code for the Perlin noise generation, which I’m also gonna mod a bit.

I really hope the theme is something I can use for a Terraria/Minecraft-ish map. Something like adventure, crafting, or exploring.

Let’s do this!

Just gonna try this out

Hello, first time for me participating in Ludum Dare.

I’m just gonna do this because I want to make something small and I’ve never participated in such a competition.

I’m gonna use Sublime Text 2 as editor, Lua as language, and LOVE as framework. Used all of these before, but for the art I’m gonna try out Pyxeledit because it looks very nice to me. Sound will be something difficult for me, might not gonna implement that. (Or is that required..? Hope not)
