My fourth Ludum Dare entry and probably my best/worst one yet.


Some time into making this game, I came to realize that I will probably not be able to make a really good jam game on my own. My ability to make design and program games has been steadily improving but my skills as an artist/soundperson are relatively nonexistent. ┬áSo I developed a new philosophy of just using basic squares for the art and trying to implement whatever way-to-out-of-scope mechanics I can come up with. So I decided to make an RPG and pile another RPG/sim on top of that because that’s an easy thing to do right? The result is (which you can see for yourself) is sort of average. It has no sound, is kind of directionless, and is probably bad? But I like it. Or I like the idea of the game it could be in some far off (possibly non-existent) future. And for me, not hating myself and everything I make is my new personal goal in jams.
