Last year in December I participated as part of http://ludumdare.com/compo/author/teammightyfingers/
And sadly was traveling on both April and August LDs
Am planing to participate in LD31 for a while, buuut.
Recently found out that Garage48 comes to Riga, and not with usual “Build a startup in 48 hours” but a GameDev one http://garage48.org/riga
It works like that, you come, pitch game idea and gather a team to make a game over next 48 hours from ~100 people come from business, development and design backgrounds.
Super fun, almost as fun as LD(but I like LD more) but makes it easier to gather teams and is very well organized.
Problem is, it starts Friday 6PM locally, while LD starts something like Saturday 4AM which 8 hours later…
So far idea is to go to Garage48 and pitch about LudumDare trying to gather a team to participate in both, then go to sleep, wake up 6AM and start brainstorming game for Garage48 and LudumDAre theme.
What I plan to use
Like last year plan to use something that outputs HTML games + packaging them as mobile apps is a bonus
Do plan to do it with WebGL as canvass is limited to just sprites drawing.
WebStorm as IDE
Photoshop for graphics
Was thinking to use one of Autotrackers but this post contains lot of other cool apps I am playing with right now
And that’s about it.
Is anyone else combining LudumDare with some other GameDev event, gathering?
