MiniLD : I have no idea what I’m doing

It started from an idea I got on the bus and I thought this was the best opportunity to try something unusual and that may be very bad.

Here is some kind of diagram I had to make, you can probably understand why I needed this.

Graphics will be bad, so I don’t want to show them now ^^ I went for the “4 colors” thing, just to have an excuse to make bad graphics ! I think that’s the only thing from the MiniLD post that I followed (except the “do what you want” part, obviously !)

Deomp dezhi !

Hi ! I’m in for the third time for this Ludum Dare ! My previous submissions weren’t great games but I always have a lot of fun doing this and receiving nice feedback and stuff :)

I will be using :

  • Haxe language with HaxeFlixel framework (maaaaybe Flambe but that’s unlikely)
  • Emacs as an IDE (with emacs-ide and haxe-mode)
  • GIMP for graphics
  • Maybe LMMS and abundant-music for music, if I have time and motivation
  • I may use Audacity to record myself, but that depends on the game
  • ArchLinux

good luck !

Demat !

So, after a successful warmup weekend I will happily take part in the LD30 with the following tools :

  • Haxe language with HaxeFlixel framework
  • Emacs as an IDE (with emacs-ide, haxe-mode and lots of other plugins)
  • GIMP for graphics
  • Maybe LMMS and abundant-music for music
  • my crappy microphone for sound effects
  • ArchLinux
  • Firefox (and chromium, for compatibility check)
  • Clementine, because who could develop without listening to music ?


I’ll try and make a bigger game than last time, or better graphics at least !

Let’s try HaxeFlixel !

I have used libgdx (Java) for LD29 but I find it quite restrictive and I am not very happy with it. That’s why I’ll try using Haxe this time, and use the warmup to try and make a first game.

It does not seems quite complicated and similar to libGdx so I hope this will go fine.

Although, I do like MVC architecture, and while I have no problem using it with libGdx, It doesn’t seem that HaxFlixel is particularly made for this type of thing…

Would you guys have some tips and advice regarding MVC and Haxe ?

First try

I want to try Ludum Dare to see if I am able to create something in 48 hours. Won’t say I’ll make it but I think it’s worth the try. I’ve already made some games but there are not really completed.

I’ll use Eclipse for coding, with the libGDX library. I use Gimp for graphics and I have absolutely no idea on how to make music. Maybe I’ll just screw around with a microphone and Audacity…

ChaƱs vat !
