The Two Sides of the Rio Grande is a Sim City like game that takes place on the border of Juáres and El Paso.

The Good

I was able to get quite a bit done in the allotted 48 hours, the rudiments of a Sim City like game with different characters (Mexicans and Americans) that have different AI strategies. A number of different terrains (roads, houses, jobs, river etc).

The night before LD30 I created a couple of new Open Source projects to be able to use some of my old libraries. Specifically, one for creating Behaviour Trees in C# and one for managing bitmap atlases in XNA/MonoGame.

This was my first LD and I spent it at Isotop, who kindly let us sit in their offices – they even gave us Pizza for the night. Big thanks to Isotop!

The Bad

I would have liked to have time for sound, but alas, there were bugs up until the last moment. Also, my graphics sucks, drawing is hard!
