Do you know what happened 20th Ludum Dare competition? At that special one when the the theme was ” It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this! “?
Courier of the Crypts! Yep, that’s right, that’s when I came up with the idea, at the 4am and made a quick prototype in 48 hours. At that point, I didn’t have any intentions to make something bigger out of it but it happened. More about that next time.
I like Ludum Dare competition because you can see what you are capable of. You have exactly 48 hours to get an idea and make it into a game (your code, your art, your music). And that’s not all, hundreds of people are participating as well, sharing their progress and at the end, you see all the creations, it’s just great. I’ll be writing dev blog at the Ludum Dare webpage and hopefully I’ll be live streaming my desktop as well. Links coming up next week.
Competition starts on Friday 14th at 00:00 (03:00 AM for me…). I’ll keep you informed. I have to prepare my framework now.
