Whale, I'm done! 0

I had a lot of fun creating this. My highlight has to be the recording of whale sounds. If they didn't before, my neighbours now think I am totally nuts.
I do wish I had more time (as usual) and would have refined the gameplay mechanics. I had a ton of ideas to add but I would also have liked to refine the way whale-steering works. Whale, it is what it is.

Some weird stuff 0

Alright, so I am doing this. I just worked an hour on a quick prototype before I went to bed. This is morning one and the first real day of working on it.
I started off with a tile-mining "get as deep as you can" "idea". I actually did a quick prototype (I like to do these things as "evolving design") and will not use any of it.

Instead I am now actually trying to pull something off in the genre of "Gamified Fakeucation" (that I may very well just have made up) and will be a weird and hopefully entertaining piece about the life and reproduction of whales.

I will use Illustrator, Spine for animations, Unity as engine and Reaper for recording.
I wish you all a lot of fun!

Edit: it's spelled whale not wale. There you go fakeucation!

Hey there,

my name is Tim, I have participated in 13 "ludum dares" (that doesn't sound right …) and several miniLDs and other smaller jams over the last years. I am happy to see a new jam here and am looking forward to playing all your games (and creating one myself ofc) ;-)

I will probably use unity this time. I used to make games in Java+Libgdx+artemis-odb(the best java entity component system period ™©®) but I gave in to the luxury and ease of rapid prototyping in unity … Sometimes I think I made better games when I coded everything myself though ;)

Have a good time ! looking forward to reading your progress reports :)
