Got my concept, it's … a sort of childrens-book pseudo-screensaver thingy where you swipe to (indirectly) control falling leaves through the power of wind. The leaves are a message from Autnum to Winter, that ask to save us from Summer.
First Winter was going to be the most dangerous part of the game but then I found out it'll be 25 ~ 27 degrees Celcius outside today. Mid-Oktober. In the Netherlands.
In completely unrelated news (read: totally related), I've decided to go for the Unranked catagory, also to give myself a little more time to learn GameMaker (Yes, learning engines before gamejams would be sensible, but apearantly I'm not) and give the game the juice it clearly needs (much will depend on the visuals).
Also also, there are some chores planned for monday that occupy a too large a slice of my attention span. Doing them now will free up valuable mind-real-estate (mind-estate?).
Also^3, maybe it's time to get off chasing the high of attempting a good ranking in these type of jams. There is so much left undone when I try to release 'on time', just to get into the '2 day' version of things. Maybe I can pick that up another time.
So, has anyone else (already) decided to go for Unranked? If so, why?
