Global Game Jam 2018

Over the weekend Matt and I had the pleasure of being joined by old friends and new to participate in the 10th annual Global Game Jam. The theme this year was “Transmission” which was a little reminiscent of last years theme “Waves”.

Our team consisted of Jake, Manuel, Mike, Drew, Fred, Matt and myself. We later recruited Aaran to do some music and audio.

We dove straight into the theme really thinking about what we wanted to produce and how we were going to achieve it. We settled on the idea of real time strategy style where the player took on the persona of a god transmitting their message to the people of a steam punk town, trying to route out a spreading heresy spread by a sinner through the use of various divine powers.

What resulted was a crazy weekend of intense work, learning of new skills, lack of sleep and bonding over an amazing shared experience.

Bringing the team together

Today marked the first day that Matt and I began working together on Little Bit Lost and an exciting day it was. We were able to really nut out a few ideas and a plan for the months ahead. From a personal perspective it was great to have someone to work with that brings fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the project.

Matt came up with some great new ideas and we will be really excited to share these with you over the coming months. We are already progressing with some of these ideas so keep an eye out for some cool new screenshots!

Cheers
