Ok, finally an official word: I’m definitely in for Ludum Dare #22!
I participated in Ludum Dare #21, and it was there that I produced my first ever hand-made Java + Java2D game. I’ve made a hell of a lot of progress since then, and am moving into Java + OpenGL (LWJGL library). I’ve dabbled in C# and C++ as well. Another interest I’ve taken is teaching a couple of friends how to use the language and encouraged learning for them. I also took part in the LD One-Hour Jam for fun.
This time, I’m in with a friend. His name’s Nathan, and he’s pretty much in the position that I was in for my first LD. Working as a team, we hope to combine efforts and skills and produce something to be proud of in 72 hours for a Jam entry. I can at least guarantee that this’ll be better than my last attempt, Captain Starfire.
A lot of my posts will be on Google+, Twitter and my public blog, From The Beginning. I might be doing a timelapse of my screen as well depending on whether I have the hard drive space or not.
Nathan and I will be using Java with the standard Java2D library to produce this game. We may decide to dip into a bit of OpenAL for sexy audio, depending on the time we have towards the end.
Thanks for reading, good luck all, and do check out my G+, Twitter and blog:
