Yup, I’m in again!
What? Don’t recognise me? Oh, yeah, I changed my username and pic for now, used to be MaddeStudios with the funky M, but for now I’m just pointing at failing code :P.
As usual, I’ll be doing the compo, not the jam. Why? I love a challenge, and I’m an idiot. Saying that, I’ve only ever done the compo o.O
Anyways, here’s my setup, I think:
- Code/Engine: Probably GameMaker: Studio, or just Java if I can be bothered.
- Audio: BFXR, FamiTracker, my Stupid face+Audacity
- Graphics: MS Paint, maybe Paint.net for funky details. Oh, and maybe the new animation tool I’m working on if it’s done enough in time
Oh, new animation tool? Yup, I’m coding something funky, that makes animation easy while staying true to classic art programs (a feature I’m struggling to find, so, eh, why not make it?). If at a working state, I’ll release a version before LD too. Here’s a pic:
Silk icons = 10/10 sexiness
As you might be able to tell, it’s styled similarly to SAI, on purpose, just because that interface is simple and intuative to use!
I don’t think it’ll be fully finished before Dare starts, but it should be able to export animation strips by that time, so I could use it for sprites. Most of the important stuff is already done. (Basically everything visible except audio already works). I do want to release at least a Spriters Helper version before LD.
It’s coded in Java, so it should be cross platform, too. Assuming any libraries I decide to add are, too.
So, that aside, I’ll probably also do my usual “Tweet Me Yo’ Games”, post compo.
Anyway, get HYPED AND GOOD LUCK! Have a fun LD when it’s time, you guys!
