I’m in again as long as I get time to do it!

Engine: Unity.

Graphics: Blender and GIMP. I’ve actually sorted out how to do 3D now. That should save a lot of time.

Audio: Audacity? LMMS? BFXR? It depends on what I need on the day.

Good luck, all!

I’m all done. Made a sequel to a game I made a few years ago.

I made it in Unity, with Bfxr for the sound effects, and LMMS for the crap music. :)

Shifty Shapey

I’m going to sleep now!

Go On Then

I’m in again. No idea what I want to do, but I need to severely limit my scope, as I also have to do Dad stuff and recover from being at work all week.

My goal therefore is to just get to the point where I can submit something that’s technically a working game!

Good luck, everyone!

In again. I’ve got the house to myself on this weekend for the first time in 4 years.


Game engine/framework: Probably either Phaser or Unity. Or Inform 7 or Twine if the mood takes me. Or something else entirely.

Graphics: Probably GIMP. Maybe Blender if I’m feeling masochistic. HEY, I might use Deluxe Paint if I can be bothered getting it running.

Audio: Probably the usual suspects. bfxr, LMMS, Audacity, fart noises into a microphone, etc.

Good luck, all!

I’m in!

Encouraged by the fact that I actually managed to submit something last time, I’ll be having a go again this time. (As long as there are no disasters with my children to deal with.)

Framework: This time, I’ll either be using Unity 5, as I’ve been practicing with it a little, or I’ll fall back to Phaser if it all goes South.

Graphics: Unity’s built in stuff, GIMP, and possibly Blender if I’m feeling masochistic.

Audio: bfxr, of course. Audacity. LMMS for music if I get that far.

Or I might just chuck all that in and make a text adventure with Inform 7. WHO KNOWS?

Good luck all!


Hopefully in!

Hello again,

I’ve had to crash out of the last two LDs due to Dad Duty, but once again, I’ll have a go at doing something.

I’ll probably have to go super-simple this time due to time constraints.

Likely Tools:

  • Phaser
  • GIMP
  • bfxr / Audacity

Good luck!

In! (Hopefully)

I’m going to do my first Ludum Dare!

I’m relatively new to game development, so I’m treating this like a game dev boot camp. If nothing else, I’ll have a bunch of mistakes to learn from.

As I have a toddler and a new baby in the house, my free time is extremely limited, so I may end up doing this for the jam instead, but I’m going to give it a go.

Tools (Subject to change):

  • Engine: Either Unity or LÖVE, depending on the theme. I’d prefer to use Unity as that’s what I’m currently learning.
  • Graphics: Blender for 3D, The GIMP and/or Inkscape for 2D.
  • Audio:
    • Effects: bfxr and Audacity.
    • Music: Probably LMMS if I have time.

I’ll also make a tumblr or something to chart my progress. Along with the usual vines, tweets, etc.
