Hello everybody! Hopefully I get time between the 13th-16th to actually make a game, or something like that, what with with school not ending ’til a week later, but dang, I am excited about making a game. This will be my first Ludum Dare, if you haven’t already realised. This was just a random decision I made like 10 minutes ago, may not have been wise to write all this, but who cares?
The plan for this is rather simple for me, as far as I can tell. I will use the time before LD28 to experiment with 3D with LWJGL in Java, so that I can make a game at LD28. I have no idea what is going to happen. If no ideas come to mind about making a 3D game with the theme that comes up, I will go with a 2D one, which will be using Java with no exterior libraries, because I’m more comfortable like that, unless I find a rather nice one before then. Now, that I think about it, I realise that I am completely unprepared, and have no idea how I’m going to fit a full game project in two days. It’ll probably be terrible. Ah well.

I cannot wait for this, kinda shaking as I type this. Have fun everybody! 😀

Time management? You can’t handle the time management!

Hi there. My name is Chris, I’m the guy responsible for this game, and this is my first Ludum Dare ever. I’m going to use a library which I haven’t touched for literally years (pygame), in a language which I hardly ever use (Python). I only decided to enter half an hour ago (after the contest started – yes, I’m that hardcore), so I’m completely unprepared.

No matter. I’ve probably got pygame installed… do I? Oh yeah, I do. That’s good. So… how does one use this, again? Meh. I’m sure there’s a tutorial on the net somewhere.

Did I mention that I’m going to a party tomorrow? That will take up pretty much the whole day, and mean that I probably won’t be up and functional before noon the day after, which is the deadline. So I only have tonight available, and it’s currently 6pm here. Factoring in an hour for dinner and assuming a responsible bedtime of 10pm, that means I have… three hours.

Hmm. Oh well. At least there’s crap-all on TV.

Maybe I should stop typing English and start typing code right about now.

Any second now….

…wait for i
