Going to try my hand at working solo again, not sure what I’ll achieve by the end of Sunday since I’ll be away on the Saturday. I’ll bring my laptop with me nonetheless.

Language: Haxe

Framework/Engine: Haxeflixel

Graphics: Paint.NET/Photoshop CC

Sound FX: BFXR/Audio Recorder

Music: LMMS

Third Time

Man, that second time was abysmal.  I’m just going to be using SDL, LMMS, Audacity and the GIMP for this one.  Before I was trying to also limp along with an engine that isn’t fully functional and trying to add more functionality as I went.  Next time, though, I’ll try and do 3D again.  As SteamOS is released today, I may try it out and get my entry running on it, if possible.

As usual, Jenkins will be handling the continuous integration and there will be Windows stable builds here, unstable here and Linux stable builds here, unstable here.  The GitHub repository is here, which I’ll have a simple window up and running in before the competition begins, and I’ll be streaming here.

I’ll probably be getting a late start as it begins early in the morning for me.  All design work will most likely be done with a text editor which will also be in the GitHub repository.  Assets will not be stored on there, instead they will be on the FTP site which I’m either going to have the assets download (not very likely, as time is limited) or bundle them with the builds from Jenkins.  During the event, I’ll make log entries as necessary.

 

Here’s what I’ll be using:

Platform

Language: C++

Operating Systems: Linux and Windows

 

Tools

Editor: gVim

Compiler: GCC

Version Control: Git

Image Manipulation: GIMP

Audio: Linux Multimedia Studio

 

Good luck everybody and have fun!

Well I suppose I’m in

I’ve been looking forward to this for a while, and last time I got 76th place for humor (of course the rating were screwed up but whatever), so I’m curious to see if I can again get in the top 100 for at least ONE thing. I’m also going to try to squeeze off a simple game engine before it starts, just to save some time. If/when I finish that, I will post it here.

Oh and here are ma’ toolz:

  1. Graphics: Paint.net
  2. Language: Java
  3. Editor: Eclipse
  4. SFX: BFXR
  5. Music (if I get around to it): LMMS
  6. Timelapse: Chronolapse

See y’all then;
return 0;

Let’s do this!

This will be my first game jam, and hopefully also my first non-mod, non-prototype game.

This Week

  1. Warming up, which will essentially be testing out tools and techniques I don’t have enough experience with.
  2. Speeding up my laptop
  3. Some university related stuff
  4. Cooking (healthy) food for 48 hours
  5. Explaining my girlfriend why I’m doing this (and not going out with her)

My Tools

  • Building: Unity
    I’ve been using Unity for 2 years now, and I still like it. Luckily I have a Pro version that I can use, which has some nice new features like pathfinding, an awesome particle system tool and of course dynamic lightning. Not sure if I will use any of those, but it’s good to have.
  • Coding: MonoDevelop
    Unity comes with MonoDevelop, Unity is partly integrated with it, the auto-complete is nice and I’m used to it, so I will be using it to code my C# scripts.
  • Music: LMMS
    Sound, and therefore music, is the only thing I have no experience with, so I will have to practice it a lot before I start. I also have to find some nice VSTs which I can use. I do know something about music so I hope I can produce something worthy.
  • Sound: Audacity
    When I have to do something with sound, which rarely happens, I use Audacity. I will probably be recording sounds with my smartphone and/or laptop microphones, and I know how to remove things like noise with this tool. Also editing and looping sound works pretty nice with this free tool.
  • Graphics:Photoshop
    I love Photoshop, I have been using it from time to time in the past 10 years, I’m far from a pro but I know my way around in it. And, most importantly, it works really awesome with my Wacom.
  • Modelling: Blender
    I usually use 3ds Max for 3D modelling, but I only have a student license for this, so I use Blender as substitute. Since the new interface I no longer really hate it, but I do not have a numpad on my laptop… Anyway, I want to try to make a 2D game, so I won’t use it extensively. Otherwise I will have to fall back to good ol’ 3ds Max.
  • Motivation: Spotify
    I always work with music on. (Unless I’m doing hard mathematics) I usually listen to a few styles, sorted by requirement: For creativity: death metal, progressive metal and prog. rock. For speed: drum ‘n bass, deadmau5 (yes, that’s a genre) and industrial. For inspiration: minimal classical music. And for relaxation: Eddie Vedder, Foo Fighters, Muse, or any of my other favourite bands, that no longer need attention (because I know every single tone).
  • Communication: Twitter – This Blog
    I never tweet, but I would love to give updates and give answers to questions. (Not that I would know why you would do that.) Follow: “@Siewart_”. I will be posting some blog posts as well, because the process of creating a game is awesome, inspirational and informative. (It’s also nice to look back when you are done)
  • Timelapse: Chronolapse
    Everyone seems to do it, so I will do it as well. Also: I love timelapses :).

My hardware:

  • My old HP Elitebook 8530w (Dual-Core 2.8Ghz, 4GB, Quadro FX770M);
  • Samsung Galaxy S2 (Ice Cream Sandvich);
  • Wacom Intuos 3;
  • A random mouse;
  • Hopefully a keyboard

Warm-up
For my warm-up a theme generator gave me a (cliché-ish) theme: Post-Apocalyptic Steam Punk. But I vowed to use it so I will.

Basic idea: A 2D sidescroller where you have to use nuclear waste to mutate plants, animals and NPCs in order to solve puzzles involving steam engines. Don’t know if I have enough time for something like this, but I want to go through the whole process once so I might make one short level, without tutorial. I will post it when it’s done, if it’s done.

One last thing
One last thing: Good luck and above all, have fun, my dear opponents!

Since tenacity is an important quality, I am back for another round of LD.

The tools I’ll be using:
QT4 library : lets see if it has everything that game development needs. I know how to use 2D drawing methods and openGL, I’m not sure about the sound support.
QTCreator : the official QT IDE, so far has served me well. This is the main reason I am going with QT, although I could use any other c++ lib in it. I love it. :)
Gimp,Inkscape : graphic tools of choice.
Blender : I might decide to go 3D with this game, haven’t decided yet. Might use blender, maybe just for 2D renders.
LMMS : linux multimedia studio, will be using it for music composing. Any other sound recording will probably be done by some generic sound recorder tool.

Now I have to prepare my timelapse script, last time I took way to many screen shots, ended up with a few hours of footage. Also need to do some shopping and prepare my work environment before the compo. Can’t wait.
