P.S. Happy 10th anniversary, Ludum Dare.
Here’s wishing everyone another decade of gamedev goodness.
Ludum Dare is my favourite online community – I’m so happy I discovered it.
I had SO much fun making this, and I hope you have fun playing it! ENJOY! =)
Though it goes without saying, I’M IN. My toolchest will include FlashDevelop, BSFXR, Photoshop, CoolEditPro, Flash 11 Stage3d. My basecode for this event is this very simple homemade 2d stage3d sprite engine. No physics, no networking, no real animation apart from sprite movement. Heck, it doesn’t even have joystick support yet. The only thing I like about it is that it is fast and small. I’m also hoping that everyone votes for the best theme of them all: CASTLES IN THE SKY.
Good luck, everyone. Remember: AIM SMALL and PLAN TO HAVE FUN!
Update, April 15: Awesome! I just scored a 40% off discount code for Ludum Dare participants (it won’t last forever!): “gjttsgeb” at http://link.packtpub.com/31Eodu
Update, April 12: Apple just approved the book for the iTunes iBookstore! http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-game-jam-survival-guide/id516248330
WOO HOO! I’m excited to announce that my new book, The Game Jam Survival Guide has just been published! This book is essentially a love letter to the Ludum Dare community.
It includes interviews and advice from LD48 superstars such as PoV (Mike Kasprzak), Fydo (Chris Hopp), Phil Hassey, Pekuja (Pekka Kujansuu), and Chevy Ray Johnston (two time winner of LD48), as well as other game jam experts such as the people who run the Global Game Jam. (more…)
