I’ve been doing a totally crap job of posting about the process of our jam, but Richard, Jason and I have been participating in the most excellent jam, here at Free Lives HQ in sunny Cape Town, South Africa. We’re planning to do some after-the-fact posts on the jam itself, but we’ve basically been very hard at work on a cyberpunk customer service game!

We’re tearing through these last moments getting “Bionic Bliss” as excellent as we can before the deadline. So looking forward to sharing this bizarre creation with the rest of the world!

Hey ho!

Hi jammers!

I’m hanging around, eagerly waiting for my partner in crime to wake up so we can start jamming. Really stoked with the theme and dead keen to make something weird and fun for people to play with!

This will be my second time participating in Ludum Dare. Last time I joined forces with my friends Ryan and Jason to create an interstellar dating sim called Star Crossed Lovers. Had the best time doing it and I was really happy with how the game was received.

This time around, I’m teaming up with a  super friend called Richard Pieterse. We previously worked together on jamming a multiplayer basketbally sort of game involving South African monster and slam-dunking children into pots. It was heaps of fun and I’m stoked to be teaming up with him again.

As for what we’re going to make, that remains to be seen. It may involve hot-tubs attached to hot-air balloons, frantic button mashing, absurd dialogue or rock and roll. Then again, it may not. Only time will tell…
