Final Day — Solo Game Jam Challenge

Thank you everyone who played the game yesterday and gave me feedback! Today I was able to focus on making the game better, and that content was very helpful to me.

It's the final day of my Solo Game Jam Challenge, I'm tired, I dream of demons and villages and buildings, but I did make a game! It took me approximately 40 hours over 5 days. I had a great deal of pleasure working on this game, as, like I said in my introduction post, I've wanted to create a village builder for a while.

Day 4 — Solo Game Jam Challenge

Day 1 — Solo Game Jam Challenge

Starting on a new project is always a very exciting moment: it's full of discovery and of very satisfying moments. If you're like me, you start small, and each new brick you add is simple: you get a great sense of accomplishment seeing those new elements pop up and work together. It is a time of pleasure, a time far from the rage and anguish of impossible bugs, code refactors and algorithmic headaches.

But I'm not worried, I know I'm getting there!

Solo Game Jam Challenge

I haven't made a game in a long while, and I want to get back in shape. I thus declare that now is the time to make my own solo game jam! Starting this Monday, I will spend the next 5 days working full time on a game that I want to make. And each evening when I'm done working, I'll write a blog post to explain what I did, what went wrong, etc.
