In time of writing, there are 5 hours and 55 minutes left until Ludum Dare starts. I can’t tell you how excited I am at the moment. I still need to take some rest before the start like 2 or 3 hours because when Ludum Dare starts, it will be 3AM here so….yeah.
Anyway, today I’ve made some shopping for the catastrophe supply, finished all important stuff for school, zipped TIGSource Advent Calendar entry (for 17th) and prepared my framework for Ludum dare. It was a long day.
Part of weekend supplies (tuna, milk, coffe, olives, pizza, spagheti, tea, marmelade, junk food, salami…)
View from my Ludum Dare weekend throne!
To bed now and when I get up, it’s time for show time!
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.
