Woo! Took part in my first 48-Hour Game Jam. 48 hours to create a game from scratch, this time based on the theme, “Millions of Them”. Quite the challenge! It was fun, and frantic, and pretty cool how much we got done in that timeframe! Here’s some pieces from it, some animations, some brainstormings, and an unused ending and you can play the game (and others by other teams!) right here:

The Late Mr. Sirius, by ‘Technical Difficulties?’

No one believes you! You’re just trying to live a normal life, get ready, go to work, but… there’s THEM. They stop you at every turn. They sabatoge your every move. And so many of them! Dozens? Thousands? … Millions?

Brave through the horde and live your life! Eat Breakfast! Take a Shower! Pick up your Keys! Wear your Suit! Get to work! Don’t let them stop you!”

Couldn’t even put objectives in the HUD before time ran out, but note, your aims are to Dress Up (from your bedroom drawer), Shower, Eat Breakfast, and get to work for 5 days!

We may or may not continue and polish it and add all the stuff we couldn’t add within the timeframe. I’d ask my programming teammates, but I think they’re still dead.

I was sketching covers for slurricane #8 (it’s still far off in the future I just like to finish the cover first). This knight painting didn’t make the cut but I still like it anyhow

Trying to maintain my cool while reblogging this, but having trouble somehow.
