In the past week I’ve totally fall in love with Paper by FiftyThree. A drawing application on iPad. It’s simple, nice, get the work done and have a really awesome feeling. So as I wanted to make my game in 2D and use my Bamboo to make all the art. Then I was thinking… why not use this application to make all the art ?

And that the challenge within the challenge that is Ludum Dare (as it’s my first time). So, here’s my useless announcment : I will make all art with Paper by FiftyThree.

Well… not exactly… As I don’t yet have every in-app tool yet I can’t do some things in it (don’t have Outline and Write), and will export the line in Photoshop to colorize. They are taking ideas in consideration so it would also be great to have feature like copy/past sheet (would be great to decompose the character or other for animation) and have at least a second layer before LudumDare. If not, I guess I’ll have to work on photoshop.

As for the animation of all that. I’m considerating using Spriter. If you don’t knoow what is Spriter here’s their KickStarter page. It’s now on beta phase so I must not count on it that much, but it’s really a great software to become. I didn’t yet give anything to them but hope I can (at least $25) before the end of Kickstarter’s founding. You must check it out… now!

Anyway, I’ll say what software I use at the right moment, but that is my plan at the moment.

Hey, Hi there !

So I’ll try for the first time to make a little game and release it (as it is, good or not… or not). So, what’s better than the 100th Ludum Dare to do so ?!

I’m french and note really qualify to do that but it’s kind of what I like to do since a few years.

My plans are to make a 2D game with Click Team’s Multimedia Fusion 2. I’ll draw, code (sort of, MMF2 style) and maybe even compose (never done this before… I’ll probably tap some button and see how it sounds like). I will also probably make a livecam on twitch or some other service for you to come, see and comment my work. Ask me everything you like and give me some support on these days as I probably won’t sleep.

Engine:Multimedia Fusion 2

Graphics: Paper by FiftyThree (iPad) and Photoshop

Music: Don’t know really… Music Studio on iPad maybe ? BeepBox.co ?

Sound: SFXr probably… and why not record some stuff by myself.

Timelapse: Chronolapse (if I’m doing it)

Live Stream: http://www.twitch.tv/cubertoy

Other Tools: iPad, Pencil, Paper, PostIt, Coffee,Sonic Screwdriver

Sorry for my english, It’s not really that good but, hey, I’m french ! (who cares ?)

VoilĂ  !
