What, you thought that we aren’t in for Ludum Dare 32!? How dare you!?

Hahahah, got it? That wasn’t even funny. Well anyway, we are in! And by us, I mean:

  • Kacper “kacperski1” Herchel – that’s me – programming stuff, graphics, sounds, drinking Dr Pepper,
  • Maciej “Macron” Ziółkowski – even more programming stuff, placeholders, yelling at me.
  • Umberto, Victorion999, zabujca405 – maybe some sounds, maybe some ideas. They are always somewhat helpful.

And what kind of “I’m in” post would it be if I didn’t write out a list of things that we’re going to use!

  • Programming: C++
    • IDE: Code::Blocks,
    • Target platforms: Windows, Linux, maybe Android,
  • Graphics:
    • Inkscape for vector graphics,
    • Photoshop and GIMP for pixelart,
    • MS Paint for Macron’s beautiful placeholders.
  • Audio:
    • Audacity for recording and mixing,
    • FL Studio for music creation,
  • Testing on Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04.
  • I’m actually out of Dr Pepper so better get some before the LD.

Also, because in Poland the Jam starts at 3:00 AM, we’re going to do something at night until then. And because we’re programmers, I am not including an if you know what I mean joke here.

Before the LD, we’ll be playing some of the best multiplayer games of all time, including but not limited to:

  • Left 4 Dead 2,
  • Worms Armageddon,
  • and Monaco!

Wow, I’ve written a lot of text. So let me just say that I wish everyone happy Ludum Dare’ing! Have fun guys!


BlackCode Studio is in. As always.

Wow. BlackCode Studio, the creators of Kamil the Cat series, Cases, Seminecata, Altrein’s Portal, Simplified and few other games is in. Yup, I know, that’s unbelievable.

So the team looks almost exactly as always:

  • Programming – Maciej “Macron” Ziółkowski, Kacper “kacperski1” Herchel
  • Graphics – Kacper “kacperski1” Herchel
  • Sound – everyone
  • Music – Grzegorz “zabujca405” Bąkowski (maybe)

And the software and other things that we’ll be using:

  • Ultra-fast NASA-like computers with Windows 7 and Windows 10 TP running,
  • The most powerful 2D game creating combination – C++ with SFML 2.1,
  • Code::Blocks as IDE,
  • Inkscape, Photoshop, Gimp and Anime Studio for graphics,
  • Audacity for sounds,
  • AIMP3 as the best possible music player. And some music of course.

Yeah, that’s pretty much all. Have fun everybody!

Guess who is in?

Yes, you were right – BlackCode Studio, the creators of The Unbelievable Adventures of Kamil the Cat and Kamil the Cat’s Unbelievable Party, also winners of 54 Oscars* and 23 Pie-eating contests*. This time we want to make something other than Kamil the Cat game again 😀

Who exactly is in?

  • Kacper “kacperski1” Herchel – programming, graphics, sounds
  • Maciej “MacronCPP” Ziółkowski – programming, some graphics

Probably also

  • Grzegorz “zabujca405” Bąkowski – music (haven’t you heard the awesome one-string guitar in Kamil the Cat!?)
  • Arkadiusz “Victorion999” Victor – sounds
  • Weronika “Orisagi” Grabowska – graphics, but not crappy ones like mine or MacronCPP’s 😛

And what will we be using?

  • C++ with SFML 2.1 (yes, we finally updated our 2.0 RC version :P),
  • CodeBlocks as the IDE,
  • Adobe Photoshop for pixel-arts, Inkscape for vectors and PaintTool SAI for hand-drawn ones,
  • FL Studio, SFXR and Audacity for sounds,
  • Skype to be able to talk to each other,
  • XSplit Broadcaster, maybe I’ll be streaming :v
  • Chronolapse to make a timelapse video later

*ok, that may not be true ._.
