How was it

Really enjoyed my first jam. I was able to come up with several ideas within couple hours, and settled on one shortly after. Mechanic didn’t take too long, spent significant time on graphics and audio (not that they turned out well).

What did I learn

That I can make and publish a game! This is a big one for me, as I have been writing code for a while, but I never really made anything. I used LMMS and sfxr for the first time, and learned a ton about Unity3D. Feedback on my game is also great.

What will I do next time

I will aim for a game that can be completed withing 5 minutes. My submission doesn’t have a satisfying win state, which makes it a lot less fun. I’ll also be improving my audio and graphics skills, so my next submission will be better polished. While rating, I noticed that many games do not have main menus. I will remember this and not worry about it for my next submission :)
