Digital Apathy with 2 members in this time – plink and dj_pale

Tools of the trade:

  • Gfx – Photoshop + asesprite
  • Sfx – ?
  • Music – Most likely Garageband if we have time
  • Programming language: haxe
  • Game framework: luxe engine
  • IDE – Atom

We’ve prepared some templates that we might or might not use based on haxe and luxe here:

Good luck everyone!

Maybe in…

Will be testing out the excellent Luxe engine, works good even if it’s in alpha. (Join the Gitter chat)!

Having used various frameworks and Unity for a couple of times – it is exciting to try something new, and I love Haxe.

That is – IF I have time… that is the biggest question.

Woo hoot! Submitted. This might be my most playable LD48 entry ever, but that’s not saying a lot. I tried out a new language and library (the Luxe engine, part of the snowkit toolset). But this time I spent a few evenings beforehand warming up, and I think it really helped. I wish I had time to add more stuff, the gameplay is not very fleshed out, but I think it gets the idea across and provides a few minutes of challenge.

Go visit my entry page to play:


Anyways, going to get some rest now. I had a great time, and I can’t wait to try out some of the other entries. Maybe this time I’ll have some time to play and vote.

I’m in! ☃

I’m in! I’m going to try and make a web-playable game again, but this time I’m going to use haxe with the luxe engine.

I’m going to try and use it for a 3D game, which is not really what luxe is intended for. (it’s great for 2d games though). I just like doing 3d stuff and I don’t mind tinkering with engine stuff, so I’m going to give it a shot unless I have a really good idea for a 2d game. Last night I put together a warmup game (the world’s crappiest breakout clone) which helped me anticipate a lot of the issues I might run into.

My basecode and the warmup game is in my ld48 code dump ( in the basecodehx and warmup subdirs. I would not recommend them, they are a big mess as mostly for my learning, but feel free to peek at them if you want.

Good luck everyone! This is going to be amazing!

ps. I love that not only that this post’s slug includes ☃, it’s the second such post.
