> Tools of the trade

Ah, how I love good open source programs ^-^. I shall be using FlashDevelop, Paint.net, DAME and Flixel to piece together this project. All very powerful and all very free!

I’ve not yet decided which program to use for my audio yet, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it!

I’ve chosen Flixel as the AS3 framework as from what I’ve heard its very powerful, relatively easy to use and has plenty of documentation – so long as you understand what they are telling you (‘super’, ‘class’, ‘variable’, ‘calls’…)

Background design notes are scattered among a notepad as well as feverish sketches. I might dig out the scanner and upload them for fun!  Some ideas I’ve already began to experiment with on screen, such as that prototype sprite as the post image =)
