I’ve had 1 proper ludum dare, and it was my first ludum dare ever.
For some reason, since then, it never really came back together, due to lack of time, or lack of interest, or lack of inspiration, or other less distinctive lacks.
But I really want to make another cool game. So here’s to hoping my GF doesn’t take too much of my time, I’m in a good mood, I feel like programming, so let’s do it.
I actually bought the discounted ‘Pickle 2′ to help me with pixel art. Not that the pixel art will look any better than it ever did, cause I’m a programmer! But still, I hope I can use the tool to make somewhat more interesting art.
I’ll be using:
And probably tools like SFVX or whatever that thing’s called which produces sound effects, as well as some overtly random music generator.
If I use the last 2 of those list, I’ll have succeeded, as that means I gotten far enough with my game to even consider putting sound and music in.
It’ll be a distinct 2D game, and I’d really love to make some kind of builder game, whether it be City Building, RTS, Spaceship building or whatever, but I’ll let that depend on how well it’ll fit into the theme.
However, I’m also considering doing a 3D game with 2D sprites (real ortagonal-like) but I’m not sure if that’ll work, and again it’ll depend on the theme.
Anyway, good luck to all, go forth and make games!
