Let’s Make This Interesting…

So I have an additional layer of challenge for myself.

I am only going to work for 24h out of the challenge.

I’m doing this mainly because I have homework that I intend to do tonight, such as a mid-term assignment for my HTML5 class.

So here’s the deal. I’m going to work between 10AM and 10PM EST. This ought to be good…

Also, changing up my coding music. Listening to classical music instead of my usual trance and metal.

Peace, love, and smiles,

- Henry

Dear Game Jam Friends:

Going to GDC? Want to be interviewed for the Game Jam Documentary?

You just might be able to get into the film. Let me know (via EMAIL: breakdance at mcfunkypants dot com) and I’ll put you in touch with the producers.

They are going to bringing a film crew to GDC for some interviews and have asked me to help rally the troops.

Kind regards,

This is my first Blog post on this site :)

I’m an independent game developer from Germany. My current project is Kelgar, a first person RPG, which is currently in heavy development.

I did not entry a Ludum Dare competition yet, but I plan on join the MiniLD #32. To practice for this, I made a few games in Flash using Stencyl.

Last weekend I created: ‘I want to be famous’ (Iwtbf) a game based on a random theme (fame). It’s created from scratch and everything, except the samples, were created by me during the weekend. It hasn’t quite a goal and isn’t finished, but the development gave me a lot of experience.

You can play it on my website:

I Found This Thing and It’s Really Cool So I’m Using It

Change of plans regarding my miniLD entry.

I recently rediscovered Love2D and have fallen in love with it again.

I’m going to use Love2D instead of Pygame. I just… like it more. :)

Because I can distribute a Love2D game with the Love2D binary, I’m not going to need help with packaging! :D

I… do know that Love2D can produce an exe, but since I’m on Linux it’d produce a Linux executable. I’ll provide a package with just the Love2D package for folks who already have it and then packages with the Love2D binaries for each platform. That way everybody’s happy (hopefully!) :)

Again, though…

Microgames, microgames, microgames.

Peace, love, and a simpler approach,

– Henry

I Need a Friend for This to Work

Um… hey, guys.

So… I’m using Python+Pygame for the Mini-LD, and I’m on Linux. py2exe apparently doesn’t work correctly in Wine.

So… I’d like to ask for help from a friend who has Windows, Pygame, and py2exe. I’m only going to have one game for you to port since I’m doing a microgame compilation.

Any help would be appreciated,

Peace, love, and something something something,

Introducing Ludum Dare to my mates, and looking for people in France

Posted by (twitter: @DrJarajski)

First off, if you’re in or near Montpellier or Béziers in France (Hérault department in the sunny south), or willing to haul your way over for LD #23, please contact me.

Now that the dates for LD #23 have dropped, I’m starting the preparations for a friendly “jam” event to get people participating.

My grandmother has a house with a large garage, a nice little garden and a barbecue, I’m hoping to be able to invite a bunch of non-LD friends from my CompSci university course and spend the weekend making some juicy games for LD. I’ve spoken about LD to these friends, but most of the time they seem to react as if it’s some kind of impossible feat, but I know for a fact that LD is not only possible, it makes other “impossible” feats feel much more within reach.

If anybody wants to join in, I can look for accommodation options for some more people, and if there are other residents of the area willing to join in, we can possibly join our efforts and get some real action going.

Also, I want to urge all of you to try and get at least ONE person you know to join in for Ludum Dare. Choose somebody who is always talking about some idea they have but never get round to doing it, and get them to participate, even if it means strapping them to a computer and pumping them full of caffeine intra-veinously.

Also, if you have any ideas/suggestions/warnings on organising a DevJam at home, please drop me a comment, this is my first time organising such an event, so even if something seems obvious, it might just be something I’ll end up overlooking
