I’ve Begun

Well I’ve started working for about half an hour now.  I’ve got some framework laid out and hopefully it’ll coalesce soon enough.  Still feel as if doom is upon the land, but the good news is that if I’m not able to finish I’ll just keep chuggin’.  Considering it’s my first I’ll be happy enough to complete it by January.

Off To A Rough Start…

Well  I lost my team.  It’s just me.  That kinda sucks.

Well, I’m going to start production on the game tomorrow.  I’ll use the last hour or so I’m going to be awake tonight to plan out the game…

…which I’ll get to if I ever complete my framework.   Wish me luck.  I’m going to need it.

A Status Update

Well, I decided I’d at least write down a list of things I need my framework to do before the weekend arrived that way I’d only have to make it work which is a lot easier than coming up with the list and making it work simultaneously.

Also…. I tried to add a Gravatar. We’ll see if it worked in a second.

Well my first post didn’t do well on listing what resources my brother and I are going to use so here’s the list:

  • Java (For certain.  I’m only a novice, but if anyone has any questions about the standard API I’ll try and lend a hand, but I won’t make the game for you :P)
  • GIMP 2 (My Brother will be handling Graphics)
  • SFXR
  • Musagi
  • And Possibly Audacity
I’ll be handling all of the coding which hopefully won’t be too burdening.  My brother will be doing the sound and graphics although I will pitch in when necessary.  Hopefully we’ll have something nice to put up on here.

Going to do The Jam

Me and my brother are going to do the Jam.  I’d give the dare a shot, but I’m not quite ready to try that yet.


I do have one question.  You can work on framework (like an engine?) beforehand?  I thought it all had to be made in a weekend.  (72 hours for the jammers).
