A Belated “I’m In”

Well, I guess it’s decided then: I will try my hand at an LD48. I started a few hours ago, but neglected to formally announce it; so here it is:

I’ll be using:

Language: C++

Libraries: SDL (for window management/input/audio/etc…), and OpenGL.

Any textures will probably be made with The GIMP, if I find the time to make any.

Sound effects: sfxr (if I get around to that.)


Right now gLapse is churning away at turning almost 1500 jpgs into a movie.

So far I’ve got OpenGL rendering, and input being processed, as well as movement through my 3D world, and “moving” platforms. Next up is to master the physics of falling onto said platforms, additional game mechanics, and resources. But, it’s late and I should have been sleeping over an hour ago, so I’m calling it a night. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll post my time-lapse so far. Good night!

Ready to go!

Hello everyone! I’m ready to join in! This is my first post to the site!

I’ll be doing a Jam entry with a friend. I’d be doing the code work and he’s likely to help with graphics and sound.

So here’s what I’ll probably be using:

  • Language: Lua (Using LÖVE as a framework)
  • Source Editing: Vim
  • Version Control: Git
  • Graphics: mtPaint (pixel art), MyPaint (Sketches, concept doodles), Gimp (Anything else)
  • Sounds: sfxr (Bleeps and blips), Audacity (Filtering and other stuff)

Hopefully that should all be enough to pull me through. Good luck everyone, see you soon!

I’m in???

So, decided like 5 days ago to work out what tools I’d need and do this….

Didn’t work out what tools I’d need though.

So let’s do this.

Using C++, probably Gosu, if I need art I’ll head to GIMP, if I need music sfxr/Audacity will get looked into.

My goal: Have something that can compile when I’m done. Secondary goals of having it do things and be a game. Actually being fun will get to be a tertiary goal.

I’m in, for a most variable definition of in.

Hullo, I’m Scio. Nice to meet you :bows:.

This is actually my third Ludum Dare, but so far I have been totally asocial and never even introduced myself, let alone post the games, of which there was only one that was even remotely playable. Don’t ask.

But motivated by the trivial coincidence of this being LD #21 and being 21 years old myself, I have finally braved an intro. I am quite proud of that.

Let’s see if I can make a game too; shouldn’t be too hard. No pressure…

I will be working with the following tools, depending on how far I manage to go of course:

  • The ever lovely LÖVE, if making a desktop game. This’ll mean lua.
  • The ever…scripty…Processing.js, if making a web game. This’ll make it sort of javascript, sort of Processing.
  • Inkscape, GIMP, and Mypaint for graphics.
  • Blender for CGI: I won’t be making a 3D game.
  • Sfxr (yay) for sound effects, and possibly Neil if daring to make music.
  • My snazzy, Compiz-y desktop running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
  • Certain other non-computational implements.

I will, almost certainly, not be able to make the competition deadlines, so I’ll focus on Jam instead. And I will try to come up with something fitting the winning theme, but if I can’t…I’ll just choose another one I like and roll with it >.>

As for participation: I will silently stalk the IRC, and try to visit the Hangouts if my connection holds. I don’t have enough bandwidth (or courage) to livestream my work, but I will set up gLapse which was thoughtfully made for this very occasion!

Furthermore, I promise not to get too nervous and go into zen-procrastination-mode like I usually do during rushes.


[Also: Did I go overboard with the tags?]

In, I am!

This will be my first LD! 😀

-I will probably use GameMaker, simply because it deserves much more respect than it gets (and because its easy!). If I am feeling confident enough, I may use C++ with SDL.

-The GIMP for creating graphics.

-Maybe sfxr for sound effects.

I wish everyone luck with their games.

May the source be with you, always!

I’m in

This will be my second attempt at a Ludum Dare now. Last time I wasn’t able to finish, but I learned a lot. Interestingly enough… most of the code I’d written as a framework for the last Ludum Dare, I incorporated back into my main engine. Actually it was more like… put my main engine into that framework. In any case, as a result, this time around I will be using:

  • Coggoid! My engine itself that I’ve been working on for years.
  • Blender, as it imports directly into Coggoid
  • Sfxr and Musagi most likely for sound and music if I’m able to get that far
  • Audacity for sound editing, again assuming I get this far
  • A very old version of Paint Shop Pro, and probably a little Paint .Net for textures
Shouldn’t be interrupted by any art shows this time around so maybe I’ll have a better shot at this. Really looking forward to putting my engine to the test. I’ll likely be adding a feature or two to it over the course of the competition as needed. Good luck to everyone out there!

I’m in!

Coming up with an original, witty title is a lot harder than it looks.

This is my first ludum dare, and I’m not sure if I actually expect to come out with a finished project. My goals aren’t that high, but I still anticipate I’m going to have a lot of fun. I’m using a language that I’m not entirely familiar with, but I’m going to have a great working atmosphere and lots of documentation.

I’ll be using:

  • ActionScript 3 with FlashPunk
  • sfxr and sunvox (a free music tracker) for sounds and music
  • mtPaint for graphics
  • emacs for, uhh, everything else

I originally planned on using Perl and SDL for this, which I have a decent amount of experience with, but I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get my game distributed in an easy format. I’ve jumped back and forth a bit between flash and javascript, and I have absolutely no experience with ActionScript 3. This is going to be fun. You know, I should probably go buy some snacks.

EDIT: Okay, I changed my mind. I’m using Python and PyGame, and probably Box2D. Worst case scenario I’ll use Lua and Love2D. Oh man, I really should have planned this out ahead of time.

It turns out I’m getting my wisdom teeth out on Thursday… is there any way I could use Sunday to make up for the lost day? Or maybe Wednesday? I need to know if that would be met with scorn…

I’m pumped for LD21 and will be using the following tools:


Sound: Audacity, sfxr, Ableton Live

Graphics: Paint .NET +  My animation helper plugin , the GIMP

Modeling: Blender

IDE/libs: Unity3D with SpriteManager 2 and EZGui

It’s that time again! Emotions will run high, tempers will flare, and games will be made!

I will enter. This is something that I need.

So… what use?

Well, I’m thinking about Panda3D. Will probably do a shmup, but I’m not sure. I do know that I’ll be in the jam.

So, that being said…

Life is meaningless without passion. Without passion, there is no reason to continue. I have my passion, and I hope that you all find yours this weekend. Let’s see some fire out there, some magic, some love. That’s what this is about.

Peace, love, and a sense of purpose,

— Mr. Dude

My name is Greyson(Bloodyaugust), and I’m in! I’ve been wanting to do this for about a year, and I’ve decided I’m finally up for it!! I’m a web developer professionally, but a C# XNA hobbyist. Here goes the list:
– XNA for code
– FL Studio 10 for music/sounds
– Paint.Net for gfx
– Family for support! 😉

War Theaters

Posted by
Friday, July 22nd, 2011 8:31 pm

I doubt I was the only one to break out in a small private karaoke concert when the MiniLD theme was announced. War followed by Cannon Fodder (in all fairness in this version by Press Play On tape). Closely behind followed Fortunate Son. Had this been a true LD these songs would be playing in non-stop repeat. Seeing as how I’ve got more than just the 48 hours, I fear for my sanity should I keep the music running.

Regardless, the music gripped me instantly and tossed me back to what I consider the epitome of W*A*R – Vietnam. The satire of Cannon Fodder and the udder foolishness expressed by both Edwin Starr and Credence Clearwater Revival (henseforth CCR) easily sets the stage for war gone wrong. Beyond this, I’ve had a notion of fiddling with games that work heavily with music. Trying to merge the two has given me three options:

  1. Guitar Hero Vietnam (meh)
  2. ReZ vietnam (still meh)
  3. Compose-a-war (yeh!)

I’m going with the final one. In principle, I’m aiming for an RTS-puzzle hybrid that relies heavily on the rhythm of the music as queues to the player on how to react to enemy movements. This requires some intriguing features not innately accessible in the engine of choice, most notably a run-time dynamic music tracker. Fun fun!

Anyway, to summarize my tools du jour:

Language: AS3

Engine: Flashpunk (custom version integrating RichardMarks’ sound mixer and a few custom fixes)

Sound: sfxr

Music: Pure code (rhythms tested in Musagi and MODPlug Tracker, samples created with sfxr or my vocal cords)

Graphics: Paint.NET

Others: tellusLibsAS, a modest helper library publicly available on Github.

Break a leg, everyone!

Mr Head and the Journey of Discoveries completed

Mr Head and the Journey of Discoveries has been completed. See the entry page.

Windows binaries | Source | Low framerate Timelapse (spoiler warning)

Controls are Arrow Keys and X.

Made in 8 hours, and written in D and uses OpenGL, GLFW and FMod. Sound effects (the few there is) from sfxr.

There was supposed to be some voice “acting” in there, but my microphone was really, really bad, so you managed to escape that. Sadly also lacking music. Would have been great with some light music, I think.

Main sprite is technically an old asset, but to match the last Mr Head game it had to be identical (see Mr Head and the Cow Drowning). I believe my entry is within the spirit of the rules.

Finished LD14, started LD18 but didn’t finish, had work on that weekend.

This weekend is looking clear, except maybe a few breaks for Christmas shopping. I’ve been getting into Processing, so I’ll probably try using it this time. It’s super-quick to get things up and running so I find it very motivating. And it’s suitable for my new netbook, serious 3D seems to be out of the question.

Tools may include, sfxr, musagi, and anything else I need.

It’s been a fairly shitty year of professional game development for me, just need a politics-free creative weekend to get the love back.

LD number just-one-above-eighteen…

…HERE I COME. So original.

Following my success in MLD#22 (yah), I shall be going for LD#19. The time is (as for many) just right – end of the year, no stuff to do…

Also, let’s keep up this random tradition of saying what tools shall who-ever use, shall I?

  • CODE – AS3.0 – Flash CS5
  • GRAPHICS – Vector – Flash CS5
  • GRAPHICS – Bitmap (maybe) – Photoshop CS5
  • SOUND – … digital? – sfxr / as3sfxr / MICROPHONE (yeah, I am a beatboxe… oh whatever)
  • MUSIC – ambient – Logic Studio 9 (if I will have enough time for that)
  • IDEAS – neural – mHEADmod3.599 (meannetSim)
  • NOTES – verbal – Text Edit 9.5321.12348g (MOST RECENT)
  • COMPUTER – good – iMac
  • okay, i will stop

Timelapse is coming, but I wonder if I will continue using that lame Gawker… It crashed trice the last time, so I lost like an hour or more of material… I HAVE iShowU but I can not find any way to make it record time lapsing… Ideas?
