Hello humans. I wanted to write you all a huge letter. I’ll tell you the story of my first game jam. I registered, I planned, I was excited. When the time came, I realized I only had 4 hours till going away on a trip to a place without internet connection for 10 days. What a reasonable human would’ve done was give up and enter the next one. I made the game anyway in those mere 4 hours, didn’t come up last, and got pretty decent reviews. I am in no way a good game designer whatsoever. Not even a decent one. Now I’m in LD27. This is my first time in this jam and I don’t think I’m even remotely ready for this. I’m in a hotel room in Buenos Aires with a sh***y laptop and won’t be getting home till tomorrow. Oh, and also, I’ve got an exam and some other important-and-time-consuming university stuff on monday. So, you know, luck isn’t on my side when it comes to game jams. But well, I’ll try my best.

I think my engine will be Game Maker 8. I started getting familiar with Unity and UDK in the last few weeks hoping I would have enough knowledge to make a game in one of them by now but… well, anyone who used those engines knows the rest of the story. I love Game Maker too much. But don’t worry, no click-the-apple games coming from me, I can assure you.

Graphics will be handled by CS5, music will be royalty-free cause I wanna spare you the pain of listening to a repetitive burp sound made by myself, and sfx will be sfxr\bfxr and library-based.

I hope I finish something that can make my mamma proud within this three days and I wish you all luck.

Now that I think about it, I don’t wish you luck. You guys don’t need it, you are good enough on your own.




tl;dr I don’t know what I’m doing here. This should be fun.
