This week is the Lisp Game Jam 2018 - write a game in a Lisp! I've never done a game jam before, but this is right up my alley.
I'm going to be using Fennel with LÖVE. I've nver used Fennel before, but it looks Clojurey enough that I'll feel very comfortable with it. I have used Lua a bunch, so there isn't much learning curve there. I know one of the things I dislike the most about Lua is the syntax, but really once you go Lisp everything feels a little bit wrong.
I've dabbled with LÖVE but never finished anything. I suppose one of the points of game jams is to work against a deadline, to limit your scope and actually finish something, so this seems like a perfect opportunity to finish my first game.
So far my idea for a game is some kind of infinite runner, and the main character will be a frog. What obstacles will Frog face? We'll see!
I'll be blogging a little bit of my progress as I go. This seems like an awesome jam and I'm excited to be coding for fun again.
