This will be my second Ludum Dare! πŸ˜€ Long time since 1st one, I missed it a lot! ^_^

This is my first time soloing so I’ll try going for the compo, but probably will end making the jam route (that is if I get to finish at all XD)

I’ll make a 2D game (I love big pixels ^_^) but apart from that I’m not planning anything else, I’ll wait for the theme and let’s see what kind of game I can imagine! πŸ˜€

I’ll be using:
-Engine: GameMaker: Studio (tought I’ll probably use notepad++ for code)
-Graphics: Aseprite (maybe also Gimp and/or Photoshop)
-Sounds: Bfxr + Audacity
-Music: FamiTracker and/or MuLab (+Audacity), maybe I’ll use some automatic generated music from http://abundant-music.com/ as a base. This will be my first try making music, so maybe I’ll end just using royalty free chiptunes XD
-Recording/video editing (for timelapse): CamStudioPortable + VirtualdubMod
-Version control: Git + BitBucket

It’s a pity that LD ratings won’t work as usual for this LD, but there is no problem without a solution, so I think I will also join the Itch Dare ( https://itch.io/jam/itch-dare ) to be able to rate games and so :)

Everybody, good luck and let’s have fun!! πŸ˜€

I was going to do a game with a vampire in a train, I already had the train, the wagon ,the casket and I was animating the path,… adding particle fx to the chimeny of the locomotive, and just after add the casket to the rear part of the train, inside the wagon, i set the animation to open the doors ,both for casket and wagon, I already have the algorithm to detect when the vampire is hide from the spot-light (sun)

running_light_shadows
and suddenly …

vampire_train

i felt something strange, the wagon door had a blood texture and it does not feel like something I would like to make, I really didnt want to create more blood games, or vampires…no…then I was looking to the ground of the scene,i feel like added an ocean, some rails, set animation and then it appears: this
that’s a game I definitely want to do.

Let me give you my inspiration here too:

Vampire train

Vampire train

Games are tailored like the script of a theater play.

I used to compose this play as a three acts.
#Act 1:
traveling
#Act 2:
surviving/fighting
#Act 3:
eating

so, this is the script:
You are a vampire, you have to sleep during the day while traveling in your train because your enemies forced you to keep moving.
When you wake up each day you have 10seconds before you get burned , to avoid the sun damage find shadows and something to eat which can increase your lifetime
