Well, I’m in!

Hi there!

This will be my very first LD, and my first major attempt at seriously making a game. I’ve done 3 years of a CS course at University, and have done plenty of extra work with JS – so I figured I’d give this a shot. At the very least, it’ll be an informative experience. At best, I get myself a good game out of it!

I am spectacularly unprepared – a busy weekend last weekend and work this week means I’ve not had time to prep what I’m going to do or even what I’m going to build this with.


I’ll be using…

  • JavaScript / HTML5 for creating the game. I’ll be finding a 2D game engine to build this with (possibly JoyJS or something similar).
  • Notepad++ as my editor
  • Mercurial / TortoiseHG / Bitbucket for source control
  • I may be using Tiled to generate maps with. But maybe not.
  • I’ll be getting art from either somewhere like OpenGameArt, or just throwing something together myself. My image editor is Paint.NET.
  • Sound will either be from some LD-related sound effect generator or there’ll be none. If I have time, I’ve just started learning guitar so I might do some background chords or something.

Well, uh.

Wish me luck!
