I’m Casually In…

I’ve got a few things to do this weekend including a Christmas dinner with friends and my college’s Christmas party, but I plan to dedicate about a day to developing something for this Ludum Dare.

I’ll probably be using Unity, C# for development and FireAlpaca for my artwork.

Roll on the theme release!~ <3

My First Update

So this is my first attempt at Ludum Dare… so far it seems to be going okay!

I woke up incredibly late after a night of no sleep. Then I crawled out of bed and started brainstorming ideas until inspiration struck in the form of a Mitchell and Webb comedy sketch. So the overall idea for the game is that you are pitching your genius plans to a board of investors and have to ‘deal’ with people as fear and doubt gets the better of them.

By about 2pm I’d managed to wrestle with my C# classes and get my XNA game working in the most pre-alpha sense:

I’ve since then started improving how the game looks and works, I’m going to add more traps and things and put in an end-game mechanic soon… but I’m gonna take a break for a few as I’m feeling pretty knackered. Here is a video¬†of it as it is right now – the people start to panic more when the people around them start dying.

Heck… even if the game isn’t done for the competition submission… I’m still enjoying making it.
