Musical #SpaceRead.
This month’s #RWPChat on Twitter (26 August) is all about #spaceread. There are too many books for me to chose from, so I’ll give a quick run down of my favourite music - all instrumentals.
The fantastic cover above is from YMO’s first album and features the synth track Cosmic Surfin’. Next we have Vangelis’ Pulstar. There’s also the Rendez-Vous album by Jean Michel Jarre - a good stab in parts at creating an orchestral synthetic piece. I’m not a big fan of Ron’s theme on this album, but it is very touching, as it was written to be played by one of the astronauts (Ron McNair) on the Challenger space shuttle that was destroyed on lift-off in 1986. Finally, I’ll put in the Star Wars theme tune. Da da da da daaaaa! Or is that the 1980s Superman theme? My memory is not what it was.

Upcoming Ludum Dare (August 2014) #ld48

This weekend is the next Ludum Dare game challenge. A few things I aim to do this time are:
  • Use Processing again - I’ve really been focusing on this since the last LD48 and am pretty happy with the way I’m getting to grips with it.
  • Not decide to use a programming concept I’ve never used before - just use techniques I know I understand. I don’t want to make life difficult for myself. :-)
  • Take on board feedback from past games and learn from my mistakes.
  • Take time to tweak it so it’s a playable.
  • Ensure the goal is clear and feedback on how well the players are doing in the game.

  • Make something original and not serious- I think I generally do this, but sometimes I need to remind myself.
  • Improve my overall scores, especially the ‘fun’ one.
As the results of each round of theme voting comes in I also like to start thinking about possible games that could fit into those themes. Having no idea where I’m heading with a game on the Saturday morning isn’t a great way for me to start.
