The clock is winding down, but there’s still time to rate a couple more games! How ’bout one of those be mine? It’s too late now for me to play all of your games, so here’s what I’ll do instead: if you rate my game in the next few minutes and leave a comment, I’ll be sure to leave a comment on your game in LD33. Promise! :)


Last Minute Plans – Here’s What I Expect to Do

I have had HaxePunk recommended to me by a few people here and there, and now that I’ve done enough to get it (seemingly) working, it seems like I should use it.

So, I’m going back to my roots of having no idea what I’m doing.

That’s right! I’m going in with minimal experience. Ludum Dare is at its best (for me at least) as a trial-by-fire. The struggle of learning under that kind of pressure keeps it fun for me.

I’m not completely without knowledge, though. I’ve done plenty of things with FlashPunk (which HaxePunk is a port of) and I’ve used Haxe a little bit before (though it’s certainly been a while since I last used it), so I kind of have some idea. Kind of.

As for the type of game…

I want to make a shmup. I love shmups. They are probably my favorite genre of game. Kenta Cho’s shmups are some of my favorites. I also like Danmaku (aka “bullet hell”) shmups since they are nice and challenging. I also love to destroy lots of stuff, and shmups are generally pretty good for that. 😀

So, with all that said…

I previously thought I would not be able to participate in LD25 because I wanted to spend time with my girlfriend before she flew off for the holidays. However, I now have found some extra time and realized that there are still 19 hours left in the compo. Yay!

I’m going to attempt to learn and make a game with Quest, which is an interactive fiction engine. See you guys at the finish line!
