Happy Sunday! Here’s a quick update on The Tomb.
As mentioned in prior posts, this is my first ever game jam that I’ve participated in! I’ve organized two, but never participated — and now that changes!
Building The Tomb has been a refreshing challenge in containing scope, which puts all those production skills I claim to have to the test. 😉
We’ve already had to cut down a few ideas such that we would have more time for testing and implementation; scope is a funny thing, but especially in such a short time.
Here’s a brief look at where we are right now, with a more in-depth final post coming tomorrow morning after we wrap the project up for submission!
This is a weird smorgasbord of our animation, characters, UI, dialogue system, and key room environment all in one place!
We’ve also got sound FX and UI sourced via Creative Commons 0 files (so no audio category for us in judging, regrettably!), and all scenes are set up. Now we’re doing final implementation and jumping into polishing and testing!
Tomorrow, we’ll have way more context on what this strange idea is, as well as an in-depth look at the entire experience.
Just remember: Death comes for us all!
