Well, it all comes down to the theme. There were only 5 or so themes I immediately thought of an idea for, and based upon the theme I will choose a development tool. Generally, for a more complex idea I have, I’ll be going with GM or Unity, and if I can think of a simpler idea I’ll be using Pascal.
Tools of choice:
GM, Unity, Lazarus w/ FPC 2.4.0, Andorra 2D, SDL+SDL_Mixer, GIMP, sfxr, musagi or syntrax or anvil studio
We’ll see. Haven’t done a LD in quite a while, so I’m hoping I can create something interesting this time, no matter how simplistic it may appear.
I’m too lazy to make motivational posters, take pictures of my food and workspace, so you’ll have to live with other people’s.
As for a timelapse, this is a possibility. Ideally I would like to find a timelapse software with 30s-1m increments that saves in PNG, which I have yet to find. Most seem to be BMP/JPG… BMP is horrible for space and JPG for loss of quality.
For creating a movie from the images, someone recommended FFMPEG/Mencoder, but I’m not sure if they can handle PNG files (assuming I can find a program to capture as PNG).
Oh well. I’ve got a day to figure out that setup. I’ve got all of the other tools pretty much set up already.
