The jam entry I’ve got going with my girlfriend (the same artist who did my last entry with me, :Fast :Food) is almost completely complete! I’ve got a little UI code to optimize and some menus to write, but otherwise, we’re just about set. This is great since she can’t work tomorrow on the game and I’ve only got a couple hours on Monday before submit time.

The game is a fighting game with a few characters (three right now, I’m pushing for a fourth to balance out everything) and only a single button. You hold that button to swing your sword, and tap it to hop in the direction of the arrow at the bottom of your side of the screen. Both arrows are random, so you have to account for anything coming your way. It mixes randomness and skill into one bundle and it’s great fun.

You’ll be able to pick what direction your arrow starts at, putting you towards offense or defense, and we might have something to the tune of Divekick gems in the game. We’ll see how tomorrow goes for me, because all the art is done!

We still need a game name! Help!

Here’s what a little battle between two of the characters looks like:

Thanks, and see you all on the other side!
