So what would be the insane thing todo this Ludum Dare?
What about a terminal game SSH stlye?
So yeah I'm making a GoLang server game where everyone
logs into one box and plays together... whatever the game may end up being.

Yeah I’m going to be using GoLang to write the game in, and people will need to SSH into it.
I may look into a web terminal if I have time before the compo starts.

I’m in and plan to write a text adventure.

My main aim will be to write an amusing, quirky story. I haven’t succesfully written a game with  much of a story before, so this will be interesting.

My tools:

  • Mousepad (editor)
  • Go (compiler)
  • Mercurial (version control)
  • MtPaint, GIMP (bitmap editors)
  • Sun Vox (synthesizer)

I have two libraries I’ve written, feel free to use them:

IFL is missing quite a few things, but is already 987 lines of code. The design should allow me to easily add support for multiplayer and a web interface. I’m developing on Linux so I’ll have to check whether it works on Windows. I know I need to fix support for CR/LF newlines.

Good luck people!

There seems to be a resurgence of point-and-click adventure games, having recently played through The Book of Unwritten Tales and Deponia. A graphical adventure game is a bit too ambitious for me, as I just drew my first triangle with OpenGL Core Profile, and I’m not familiar with existing game tools/engines.

Then I saw that luthwyhn is planning to do some sort of text-based game! He inspired me to go N/A for graphics and audio as well, and try my hand at writing some Interactive Fiction (IF). There are some sophisticated tools, like Inform7, but I’ll be doing things the hard way, from scratch:

Good luck everyone!
