I hope I’m in! My name is Shmarah and I’m a 15 year old sophomore in high school that loves game jams. This will be my 5th attempt and hopefully my 3rd success! Usually I make visual novels, but we’ll see what happens.

PlayCanvas (maybe trying it idk) but probably using Ren’py

Adobe Photoshop / Painttool Sai


If anyone would like the amateur help of someone who can make somewhat decent graphics (esp. Pixel art) and chip tune music, I’m your girl!

I thank the community for your support  and send my best wishes!

I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to properly introduce myself!

I’m Shmarah, 15 year old visual novelist nerd! I received the email with the theme, “10 Seconds,” after enduring dance practice, running 5 miles, and playing a marching band performance (I play the tuba) on Friday.

I thought, what the hey, let’s make a video game!

This will be my second Ludum Dare, and I think I’ll be entering the Jam with my sister, the artist torisora on tumblr, helping with the graphics.
Thank you all for supporting me! I hope to write a truly heartfelt story for you.
Time to go to sleep and hopefully not doze off in church tomorrow morning!
