My First Ludum Done!

Well, that was pretty intense…

Friday night I had a party to go to, and only stayed until 10. Coded for about 2.5 hours until 1AM or so. Woke up on Saturday and coded from 9AM – 5PM, 10PM-2AM. And coded today for another 3.5 hours or so, for a total of ~18 hours.

I’ll know better, so next time I can spend a lot more time coding, and a little less time with so many events. I’m pretty sure that with grad school, the April event won’t be my friend, though next August sounds pretty good.

All in all, I’m still pleased I did this– it was a great time of learning and self-reflection on what I do with my time.

Good job everyone!

Day 1 Progress, perhaps?

Well, I was originally going to code something up in C and OpenGL… but I didn’t really feel my skills were up to snuff to do that.

So instead I’m doing something a little more accessible in HTML. It’s going to be a bit lean on the graphics, as it’s looking like its going to be a text-based RPG or something along those lines. Either way, this has been an interesting day so far, and I’m cut a bit short on time, so I really need to keep at it while I can.

Good times ahead.

I’m in… perhaps, anyway.

This will be my first Ludum Dare. I’m hoping to find time to do the development.

Tools would include:



That’s the plan so far. We’ll see how it goes!
