Technology

I have used a mix of engines and tools over the years. Often I use LDJAM as an way to try out or learn new tech.

TODO: Chart of which games used which tools

Mostly these are built with C++ and a bit of python. They use either allegro or SDL/OpenGL (with one oddball Ogre experiment)

Some newer ones are experiments with haxe/snowkit.

Some of the games includes a branch with the original version as it was after the 48 hours, and the 'trunk' which may contain future post-contest updates. Newer ones might just be tagged with the ludumdare number.

Part of the reason for creating this repository is to share the games with the world, adding to the pool of open source games. But I'm also planning to add future games to this repo, so during future contests you can watch me code in real time (or as often as I check in).

Building the Games

The build system is pretty craptastic right now. There's a CMake project that will build some of the games on linux but it will certainly need some tweaking to work for you. For windows, there are a few msdev project files but they will probably need so much work you'd be better off starting from scratch.

I've updated it a bit, some of them build and run on MacOS now, if you have SDL installed.

The Minibasecode

I've collected a few bits and pieces of the code into a "minibasecode" subdirectory, and there's a script in the "ld_template" directory that will do a lot of the work of setting up a new entry for me, with a basic game loop and drawing something on the screen. It's pretty buggy so I wouldn't really recommend it using it unless you are me and know how to workaround all the cruft, but that's what I start my ludumdare games with these days.

I'm also working on a "real" game engine called luddite (which lives elsewhere), unfortunately it is not yet in a useful state. The "luddite" directory in here is a precursor to that, it's all dead code and isn't very useful anyways.

There's also an experimental snowkit basecode, but I wouldn't suggest using it.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
