I got sidetracked for a couple of hours, but I now have the core game idea fleshed out, and have fiddled enough with Unity to think I know enough to implement it. I’ve used Unity before, but only in groups and building off of foundations. Very daunting creating something from scratch with it! Also Blender, Blender is very hard…

Sure I’m In Why Not

Let’s use Unity like all the cool kids. Art is probably Photoshop or Blender or whatever programs I can find on my computer.

This is what happens when you screw around in Famitracker instead of making games

I’m placing all my bets on ⛄jam.

Gonna be using Lua with Love2D, probably doing the typing with Sublime Text and Vim. Letsss gooooooooo

Lot of high score games let you share your successes to Twitter and stuff, so why should LD games be any different?

Here’s the module. Just download the file as “twitterer.lua” and require it into your game.

Here’s how you use it (after the break): (more…)

I’m in it to do-my-best…it!

This is my second LD. I participated in #LD28 but I didn’t manage to make #LD29. Hopefully things go better this time!

I actually have a fleshed-out idea in my head that I really want to do, so I’m hoping that we get a theme that works with it!

Language: Lua, the best mini-language ever.

Framework: Love2D

External libraries: Middleclass, so I don’t even have to consider how I’ll implement classes in Lua

Editor: Sublime Text 3, maybe some Vim

Art: Photoshop

Sound: If I have time, I’ll throw together something in Garageband

Perception is done!

a gif of my game

(it’s not looping, don’t worry)

My game (the one with the weird lighting) is finally done! You can download it for Windows here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=31403.

My head hurts too much right now to write a post-mortem (plus it’s probably too soon anyway), so have a gif instead. And congrats to everyone who’s participated in this LD, we’ve finally gotten to the end!

Finally got my idea down

a preview of the lighting

I think I finally have what I want to do down (although it seems a bit late for that, eh?). Originally I was planning to do a platformer of sorts, but after wonking out some platformer code I realized that my idea didn’t really work in that form. Now I’m doing a top-down perspective. At the least the code is a lot easier, ahaha.

Playing around with vectors…

Having to relearn a bit of math, I wish paid more attention in linear algebra!

Going from this (click for GIF):


…to this:


At the moment it uses a relatively quick line-intersection algorithm which performs pretty well with two polygons, but I’ll have to see how it scales up with some more of them, heh.

I’m not actually sure if I’ll be making a game, but Love2D came out with a new version today and I want to play with it!

Language: Lua

Engine: Love2D

Editor: Vim

Art: Photoshop, Paint.NET

Sound: Ha, we’ll see

Idea: You Only Get One Way
