I’ve decided to participate in Ludum Dare Game Competition! A theme is announced Friday @ 10pm, and people have 48 hours to make any game they want. I have no delusions of winning the competition, but I look forward to inspiration from the topic and a weekend of crunching.
It’s gotten me to find some new toys to play with!
- SFXR is a tool for generating sound effects. I LOVE the pre-programmed groups of sound effects with the “mutate” button to subtly change them for variations.
- Musagi is a music creation tool from the same awesome guy as SFXR, looks VERY capable. I honestly don’t think I’ll have time to familiarize myself with it and actually make some music for Ludum Dare, but I really look forward to playing with it in the future.
- Pyxl Edit is a drawing application for making pixel art. Again, doubt I’ll be able to learn it in time, but it looks sexy.
