Reindeers On Strike

So I was late to the party and only decided to start on my Ludum Dare game on Sunday evening, I had been busy all weekend. I knew I didn’t have much time so I went for the Jam even though I was by myself and would’ve qualified for the Compo. Because of the time constraints my game has loads of bugs and aspects which I have clearly cut corners. But despite this I am happy with the outcome. I have managed to get a small buggy game working.

I chose to make a 2D shooter because I have done it before and it would save time. Christmas is just around the corner so it was a favourite in terms of game ideas, and who doesn’t love a violent santa?

The game itself has got pretty good overall reviews and considering the time put in to it I am very happy with the result. The game functions which is a miracle in itself. On top of that with (good) music, (good) art it really looks like a game.

I am quite proud of it and to answer the question, yes it is possible to make a game in 8 hours. Whether or not it is good, thats for you to decide.
