In about 45 minutes the theme will be announced.
The front page will then be flooded by posts along the lines of “What a terrible theme, definitely don’t like it. Going to sleep on it and maybe inspiration will come”. Don’t be that person. If a theme that you don’t like is the reason you are not making a game then you probably were not going to make a game in the first place :)

Trust me, just make a game.



Its coming together!

So this will be my 7th (8th?) Ludum Dare.

I have successfully completed a game 4 times starting back in LD 21. On a few occasions I have started and not completed for a variety of reasons including lack of motivation caused by buggy tools, illness and (on one very special weekend) alcohol poisoning.

The one bit of advice I would give to new people is to make sure you get the basics of error handling and testing done. It’s not as fun as coding new features but if your game is a crashy, buggy mess no one will like it.

I have game-play in place but its not really fun and there is no music…. That’s tomorrows problem.
I know everyone is busy with their own games but if you have the time have a look and let me know what you think.

Unity game.



Done and dusted!

I know some of you out there are looking at your art and thinking that an 8 year old with crayons could do better.
To solve your issue may I suggest blur!

Still not as good as actually having a programmer on your team but it may help!

C#, XNA, Paint.Net, other stuff.

It’ll be my 3rd LD so I have a good idea what to expect. Check my blog here for my LD survival rules.

This will be my 4th LD. I did quite well in my 1st and 2nd. On my 3rd I ended up not competing, and posting some hilariously misspelt and incoherent blog posts, due to a self inflicted illness. (Don’t binge drink, kids)

The weekend of the jam I’ll be moving house so I’ll probably focus on getting a fast prototype that works with a touch screen. That is all I seem to be coding in work at the moment.

I have some rules for jams, 1st timers may find interesting.
