Oh wow.  I’ve been looking forward to this over the past month.  I even blocked off time on the calendar and made sure that no other events were being held.  No baseball games to attend.  No weddings.  No parties.  Nothing but wide open schedule.

I dusted off the basecode from the last few compos and created a project just to make sure that I don’t have any crazy problems right before I start to code.

I’m not partial to any themes this year, though there are plenty that I could do without.  So far it’s Burrowing, Caverns and Castle as the favorites of Day One voting.  I guess any of those are fine and are open enough to not restrict creativity.

Again, I’m going to use mostly the same tools as before:

  • Java 6 SDK
  • Eclipse IDE
  • Photoshop, maybe some Illustrator
  • DrPetter’s sfxr for sound effects
  • Audition, if I can get it to play well with my sound card
  • HP OfficeJet 6450 All-In-One for scanning doodles
  • No Fear Energy Drink Sugar Free (Go Boris Said/Carter Racing #60 & #08!)
  • Everlasting Gobstoppers
  • mIRC for chattery
  • Killer Game Programming in Java and the base code I used from last compo.

Good luck to all, and see you in two days and five hours!
