Well it’s time for another Ludum and its tri-annual Dare. The theme this time around is “You are the Villain”.
The first thing that came to me is that Villainy is often a matter of perspective. Many times I’ve been around people that have been antagonistic to me, but are they deep down evil? Probably not. Likewise I’ve done things or treated people in ways that would probably have them see me in a Villainous light. We all react to situations emotionally, using pre-set biases, and focused on our own agendas. Sometimes this leads to conflict, mis-communication, and even us labeling another as a Villain.
Anyway… I want to play with this idea this weekend. We’ll see what comes of it.
I’ve decided against the proper Compo. I’ll take the more relaxed Jam this time around, hack in more of my existing code bases, and ask Melinda to write for me.
Tech-wise for tonight I’ve got some very very rudimentary systems hooked up and talking to each other. TONS of work tomorrow to turn this into a game.
