In Topic: The basics of explaining concepts and ideas

11 September 2014 - 08:43 AM

Keep It Simple and Stupid. Always go to the point and try to keep your explanation as short and simple as possible.

Use schematics, drawing and bullet point if you can. "One drawing is better than a thousand words" as they say.

Getting back to the choice of the theme. The Ludum Dare GameJam use a system of poll to determine the theme. I'm not sure there is enough user for this method. But maybe letting the user vote for a global theme and the judge will be able to choose a smaller theme depending on this global theme.

For a maybe bad exemple : the participants chose the global theme : Sea, and the judge chose the smaller theme : pirate.

I can't say for sure that I will participate, but this sounds interesting and last year's theme was rather promising. If I participate, it will probably be with a friend. And if I don't participate I'm still curious of what people will do :D

Secondly i was considering adding a participation category to the score system which is based upon posting images/dev journals/general community participation with the competition threads to give better atomosphere to the entire thing. However this category is still up for debate.

Nice idea. I like it! 

How the theme will be chosen? It is entirely up to the judges? 

In Topic: Why Orchestral music is best for video games?

Computers and electronic sounds CAN NOT FEEL

Nope, YOU cannot feel what the computer and electronic sounds has to say. Is there really a difference between the musician behind his cello and the musician behind his screen? They both have the same goal smile.png




Why Orchestral music is best for video games?

Yes, it's not.


As Keith G said it's all about context. Some games will sound better with electronic sound, and other not.
