A team is assembling for Ludum Dare 45, which starts this friday at 6pm US Eastern time and runs through the same time on monday.
We’ll probably use a starter project that connects Snap!, the blocks programming environment, to CHR.
At the start of the jam they’ll announce a theme something like “trapped”, and you have to build a game around that theme. So maybe we build an interactive fiction about prison escape.
If you want involved, hop onto ##prolog on freenode.net and bug me (anniepoo) or aindilis to put you on the github org, and d/l & install the starter.
Why do this? Entering Prolog teams in game jams - arguably the worst possible application for Prolog- stretches the boundaries of the system. The last jam we did spread knowledge of cyc a bit.
Hey, our last entry has picked up a few positive comments - it was based on nanisearch, and some people actually enjoyed the game.
