I’m in!

I’m in!

I have a couple ideas, but I’ll probably do a game similar to those Japanese game-shows where the person has to fit through person-filled holes. Not necessarily as homo-erotic as Muscle March though.

I’ll be trying out libgdx, a Java game library. I didn’t take some time to use it beforehand, we’ll see exactly how bad of an idea that was…

Good luck everyone (especially fellow late-starters)!

Ludum Dare 28 was my first Ludum Dare, and dare I say, it was a successful one for me.

Things I did right:
-Accomodated time to have a complete game by the deadline.
-Didn’t have any ugly placeholders by the end of it (even though I would have changed some graphics)

Things I did wrong:
-Didn’t have enough practice with the program I was going to use before starting, which lead to me discovering stuff on the go.
-Didn’t have a game that could be played through until the very last hours, which was risky and made me nervous
-Didn’t add music or sound, which would have taken very little time, and be worth the quality improvement.

Having dedicated a weekend to developing a game has been very rewarding, since now I have completed a game for the first time ever, after years of just thinking about it. I also met many cool people at IRC, you should come hang out next time if you didn’t before :^y
