Rectangle Robbery Primary Rectangle Robber

Yup, I managed to finish with a few hours to spare, although my game is basic, and I mean basic, but this has been the first time I have EVER completed a game project, so I am very happy to just have something at all playable, even if it is not very fun and about 20 seconds long. I have submitted it (and expect to come last) just so I can get feedback. But the point of this post for me is to thank everyone who helped me on the IRC. You guys rock! I would not have this game without the likes of Bobrocket, llwydn and Sanguine, among others.  So thank you guys, I think I have learnt more this weekend than in the last year of working on and off on game development.

Here is a link to my, Windows only, entry.

I guess only one thing is left to say then… BRING ON LD26 :)

First Ludum Dare without any programming experience!

OK maybe I lied a little bit in the title, this is my first LD and I’m not a programmer, but I want to be. That’s why I’m entering, I have been learning the bare basics recently and I’m hoping LD will give me a reason to create SOMETHING, whether it be text based or a simple 2D game. I’m mainly going to be learning over the weekend and putting what I learn into a “game” around the theme, hopefully it’ll be a little better than the Hello World program I’ve been making… I hope anyway!

So yeah I plan on doing it in Python (pretty easy compared to all the other languages I’ve looked at, I have a few books around me and the internet. So… yeah if you have any advice please post it in the comments below and good luck everyone :)
