First things first… An introduction
Hello World! (Never been good at introductions, but here goes…) My name is mr_1337 (can't believe that username was available) and live in Sweden. Been prototyping a few games in the past, but never anything to show for. In a pathetic attempt to actually create something from scratch with the plan of completing and releasing I decided to join a gam jam, which leads me to..
Scroll down for TL;DR and game
In the begining there was nothing
With my head held high I started drawing the sprites. That went well I thought and I soon had a, pretty good I thought, main character for my game. Cut to a few hours in, I started with the animations. Been programming for a few years in Java, and this was the first time using Unity. I had watched a few videos on how to use it and noticed that C# was pretty close to Java so how hard could it be right? I have never been so wrong in my life. 12 hours in and I was still stuck at the animation part.
The end is nigh
I rather quickly realized that I was not going to make it, neither Ranked nor Unranked, but what a wise man once said,
"Quitters never win"
So, working on the game for a week, I finally made it! My first completed game! (Yes, I'm proud of it! Probably more than I should be). Overall, I'm pretty happy how the Jam turned out, even learned a few things. Few of them being; DON'T LEARN A NEW ENGINE UNDER THE JAM, DON'T DRAW, FOR GOD SAKE DON'T DRAW. Will most definetly continue making games in Unity though and now when I've got a hang of how everything works I can't wait to release my next game. Will most likely join more jams in the future!
Oh, one more thing, Happy Jamming!
TL;DR and Game
Did not make it in time, but still decided to complete and release the game! Feedback is much appreciated! :) (First game ever completed, please go gently on it)
