Going solo this time. Got rough ideas for some themes, not for all.
Do I need all of this stuff? Who knows… but a little preparation won't hurt :)
Looking forward to this weekend's Jam:
Haven't decided on tech/tools yet. Though Love2D looks cool to give a try.
Good luck everyone!
I got out of hospital on Tuesday with not one, but two kidney stones that I have yet to pass. However I signed up for this with every intention of doing my best so here goes.
After what I can only call a miraculous success from AKJ7 I am hyped to jump right back in to making something new and exciting to learn with. I'll be entering the 3 day jam as a solo this year supported by my wonderful girlfriend so I'm going to have to make some sacrifices in regards to music and sfx but I'll see what I can do.
I'll be using Godot again as the engine as it served me well last time, wings 3D and krita/inkscape for graphics and if I somehow manage it, bfxr for sfx and Sibelius for music.
Good luck to everyone taking part whether you're here to compete or just have a good time. Looking forward to all the entries I'll get to play.
This will be the first jam where I'll use PICO-8 to create a game and I'm already quite excited!
While I was going through some tutorials I remembered a 2008 netbook I still had in my drawer, et voilà:
It runs xubuntu and now directly boots into PICO-8. Also adjusted Terminator for a C64 feel:
Despite 32bit and single core, pico runs surprisingly well. This thing might be old, but has a solid battery. It's great to have a machine that I just can boot up and start programming, even on the go. :)
Happy Jam everyone!
After last times quite unsuccesfull attempt, I'm back with more knowledge and ambition than ever!
(Just realised I missed 2 Jams… Shame..)
This time as a team! On my side is Oliminor (graphics expert)!
Music: Sound Forge / Bosca ceoil
Might even do a dev. log on it… Anyone would be interested?
I'm Ellie, and I live in Nevada, but am originally from Sweden. I found this jam through the Ludum Dare page, and am really looking forward to jamming this upcoming weekend. I am conscidering doing the extended deadline, as I work evenings (so there goes Friday, and it's my turn to host -and cook for- DnD that Sunday, lol) but we'll see.
My background is in game design, and I particularly enjoy level design, but am neither programmer or artist, so it'll be an interesting challenge. Oh, and I will most likely do this jam in the Twine engine. :)
Best of luck to us all!
