I went to LD today just to find out when the next LD was going to be held and much to my surprise I found out about this Mini LD. This is my first game jam (and third game I’m making in my still early game-making journey) so I’m quite stoked for this!

I think I’m going to deviate a little bit from the original Pong and instead use it as a springboard for something else. As odd as it sounds, I’m thinking of making a relationship/friendship simulator (partly inspired by one of Mike Mezhenin’s game, “Where Are Your Friends Tonight“) but with Pong-like mechanics. Although as I’m tilting towards more of an abstract aesthetic (can’t draw quite as well as I design hah), when you play the game, you probably won’t even realize it’s a relationship/friendship sim!

I’m planning to make it with Construct 2. Hoping to get the idea fleshed out this weekend (have some ideas on how it could be Pong-like but still in progress). Then this week, will work on trying to figure out how to integrate the mechanics into Construct 2. By next weekend, hoping I’m all done and polishing!
