Ludum Dare #42
Theme: Running out of space
This is my first ever game jam entry.
After I decided to take game development more seriously, entering game jams seemed like a good place to start.
I sometimes have a problem keeping my game ideas small enough so that I’m actually able to finish them (within a reasonable timeframe). So I decided that my goal was to create a game with mechanics and graphics that were as simple as possible, while still being fun and appealing.
Originally, I planned to submit my game for the Ludum Dare Jam (72 hour challenge), but I finished sooner than expected. Instead of complicating my simple game concept by spending more time on adding more stuff, I decided to spend the time I had left on polishing and then submit it to the Ludum Dare Compo (48 hour challenge) instead. And I even got some sleep! 😉
There’s a couple of bugs and some music would’ve been nice, but I think I accomplished my goal and considering that it was my first game jam attempt, I’m pretty happy with the result. 🙂
