Full Recovery

So I think I’m finally at a point where I’m satisfied with the basic world map. I painstakingly put in each wall and ball by hand to make sure it was as right as I could get it given the time constraint.


274 Tiny bawls


76 Variously sized wawls



Ludum Dare has really pushed me to do my best. So grateful to have this experience. I’m doing a lot better than I thought I would and not falling completely on my face for my first LD.

Computer Restart Ended Up Being Good

Computer reset for no apparent reason and ruined about 2 hours of work.  I was so mad I had to get a snack and some coffee. The good news is that I was working in the completely wrong direction and all that work I was doing was setting me up for failure in the long run. I’m working on a reverse pac-man game where you are the ghost and I was making the world and completely missing some of the finer points of getting all the positions 100% perfect so it ended up being a good thing in the end. Time to jam some DMB and get back to work! :)

Already posted an I’m in before I was up with the times on how to actually do one.

First Ludum Dare here and I’ve been really excited for the past week!

I plan to use some variation the following tools:



  • Unity (possibly using WebGL)


  • GIMP
  • Photoshop
  • Paint.NET


  • FL Studio
  • Audacity
  • Bfxr


  • C#
  • Javascript


  • Visual Studio 2012
  • Sublime
  • MonoDevelop


Hope to have a great time and learn a lot from everyone. Can’t wait to see what everyone makes!

Sorry not sorry about the subtle Javascript jab 😛


I’m In! First LD!
