I’m not giving up. There is not so much that I have to finish in the game, but I will not be able to finish it in 1 hour. I’ll just change from “Ludum Dare” 48 to 72 hours. #LD48 #LD72 #LD29

Starting now

I’m still working on the idea. Maybe a escape game. Well. I will work with:

– Notebook Dell i5, 6g ram, 2g video, 14″.

– Wacom Bamboo Pen CTL-470.

Gnu/Linux Ubuntu 14.04 – Operating System

Android Development Tool (ADT) – Programming IDE

LibGDX 0.9.9 – Game Library

InkScape – Graphic vetorial editor

Gimp – Image manipulation program

Audacity – Audio manipulation program

Krita – Image manipulation program

– A guitar to make a music and mouth sounds (with effects) to other sounds.

– Smarthphone Sansung S3 mini to capture sounds and music.

It’s all for while.

That’s it. I’m done!

I will start now my game. I don’t know if I will have time enough to finish it and, really, I don’t care. Let’s have some fun. I will use: Linux Ubuntu 13.10, Android ADT, LibGDX, a guitar, audacity, gimp. I will have no time to prepare something to capture desktop while I work, so… Let’s begin.

Game Over to me…

Unfortunately I can not finish my game. I realized I was ruining my code to get it finished in time and the game was not getting cool. The event was very good to give me ideas and I will continue to work on them this week. Decided that I will finish the game as I want and with a little more time. Good job to those continues. I stopped here, exhausted.

I leave you with my screen of Game Over:

My game now has a name: “Do Not Go Into The Light”. And yes, It is to be continued. This game will have only 2 levels. :). All resources are finished: Images, sounds and music. Tomorrow I will to game programming. Tonight a little more of tests with the IDE and I will go to the bed. I am very excited to see my game done. Good night people…

I worked until now basically the idea and creation of resources. There are still some elements that will be used to set the scene, but I do it tomorrow.

I’ve done capturing the audio for music and sound effects. I do not know if I’m following the right way, since we have a small time frame for completion of the game, but this process is an experience.

Tomorrow I will continue with these drafts and, if all goes well, I’ll start programming. Good night.

My lowly workstation. It’s just it, a notebook with Linux in a table that is shared with my wife. And I’m ready to LD27. Exciting!!!

 

First time Ludum Dare

Hi! My name is Saulo and this is my first time in Ludum Dare. So let me try do some game interesting (or not) in this weekend, in so little time. I am a researcher in Computer Science, Games, Artificial Intelligence, Distributed Computing and Cyber Art. I am a hobbyist in game development. In general I only develop part of simple games to implement some algorithms of artificial intelligence and other techniques.

Well, let me say what I will use to make my first game in Ludum Dare:

Image Capture: A camera and a scanner to capture images that I will use or create. I’m thinking if I will draw or what.

Sound FX and Music: I will use my Sansung S3 mini to capture I playing my guitar or making some sounds. May be I will use SFXR too. I don’t know yet.

Operationg System: GNU/Linux Ubuntu 13.04 and graphic environment Gnome3.

Graphic manipulation: GIMP and Inkscape.

Sound manipulation: Audacity.

Programming: Android Development Tool (ADT), Programming Language Java and LibGDX. I will make a web version.

That is it, for while, and a good LD for all.

Saulo.
