Yep, it turns out being busy all weekend for my first Ludum Dare was a mistake. Also, using Unity for my first one may also have been kind of a mistake since I spend probably a third of the time learning to use it.

But you know what? I had a lot of fun! So this was a bit of a wash (although I did make the submission for the hell of it), but next time I’m hoping to make a real showing!

Another First Timer Jumping In!

Howdy howdy!

Another first timer jumping straight in. I’ve decided to go right in with the competition even though I know my weekend is actually pretty full already. I’ll not doing anything even remotely fancy, but I want to have some fun with it!

To add to the fun, I’m planning to be using Unity2D, which I’ve installed but never actually got around to learning. I’ve just spent a good evening learning through some tutorials and documentation and… well, it might be rough, but I think I could at least make something over the weekend.

Alternately, I might just into using HTML/JS stuff if I end up not pursuing a game idea that suits Unity (some kinds of puzzle games, other things like that). Have to see what that pesky theme is!

I’m not planning to use any pre-made code/assets although I will, of course, be taking full advantage of all the wonderful work that Unity does for me if I use Unity.

Gah, excited!
