I didn’t have as much time as I like to spend on LD this weekend, but I’m super happy to have been able to finish a game in something like ~20 hours of development time!  In the last hour I had to rush copy/paste a lot of my event code, and so that aspect is much less interesting and diverse than I wanted… but at least it functions and (so far) doesn’t crash.

Now my next big goal needs to be to actually get a bunch of judging done this time around.  This has always been a huge problem for me due to how LD always falls on the calendar, and I doubt this year will be an exception – Last week was the first week of school, and as a teacher I’m super busy trying to get things off to a good start.  I’ll do my best though!

Here’s the game project page!   http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-30/?action=preview&uid=3911

Making a lot of good progress today!  On my LD entry at least.  My other weekend obligations… not so much.  Oops!~  I’m down to adding in my random events and the end game criteria (Timer based, I think I’ll go with) and then I’ll have a completely playable game! YAAAAAY!~  There’s also still a tiny chance I’ll try to add sound before the competition ends.  We’ll see about that though.

I’ve got the basic code up and running for creating planets, and having them orbit based on a base linear velocity and their current distance from the star. Next step is to add controls for changing that distance, and then I move on the making the planet itself rotate upon its axis and tracking a point on the surface at the pier for the Rainbow Bridge!~  Before this, though – I sleep.

Woke up from an accidentally long nap after work, only to see the competition had started without me!  How rude!  I don’t have a huge amount of free time this weekend, but I’m going to try my best to finish an entry anyway.  In my past LD efforts I’ve always worked with some form of Python – I’m going a new route this weekend and working in Javascript, to go alongside the efforts I’m making with #JS13k.

My game has been titled “The Bifrost Project” – for the moment I’ll leave it to your imagination as to what that might be about!  Once I get a bit further along I’ll post some screens, and a link to the working prototype!

Good luck everyone!
