Ludum Dare, Ho!

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.

I’ll definitely be using Unity, GIMP, and Blender in the competition, and I’ll make updates here on my progress (and the final product).
