Let’s do this!

Chowing down on a bag of Scooby-Doo fruit snacks and about to make a game on the entire screen.

Can’t talk now, I got a game to make!

My First Ludum Dare ever! LD – 31

Monday, November 10th, 2014 5:05 pm

I heard about Ludum Dare in 2006 when I stumbled upon Python and Pygame library. I have always been intrigued by this powerhouse pump out of a video game in 2 or 3 days. While intimidated, I am going to finally do this. The worst that could happen is that I don’t finish. The best thing: I finally finish something and bring an idea to life instead of letting it live in my head.

I’ll be using Unity3d 4.5 or 4.6 (most likely 4.6, it’s worked fine for me so far), and scripting in C#. I’ll be making visual art and sprites in Gimp and Blender. For music, I’ll probably mix it up between recording my Ukulele and some beat boxing in Audacity. I’ll sketch some rough ideas on paper with pencil.

So, being my first Ludum Dare to participate in, I am envisioning 72 hours straight without sleep. That is unrealistic for most regular human beings, so I am curious: how all you LD types approach your days during this challenge?
