Global Game Jam
A few weeks ago I atended the local event of the Global Game Jam. This event proposes a challenge: do a game in 48 hours, based on one topic. The topic of this year was the heart and the sound of it. At the begining of the event, they organize teams to work and each team decides what kind of game they want to do.
Our time was composed by two developers, a designer and another person with knowledge of game design and story telling. Later, another artist and other programmer joined us. None of the programers had experience doing games, so it was a great chance to learn something new.
After a long weekend, a lot of coffee and only sleeping five hours, we didn't finish the full map, but we converted two parts of the map in two little maps that we can use for a demo.
We were really happy with what we achieved. We did a playable game without any previous experience in just 48 hours. After a few weeks, we put a few more hours to finish the full map. Now, you can play it here and if you are interested, you can download the code from github.
