For the next 48 hours me and James, will create a small game in 48 hours. For a while now we have played a bit around with a game idea, but we’re currently working on another project and don’t want to split our focus too much. We decided to take a weekend out to work focused on this idea alone and see how far we can take it.
The game idea itself is about playing around with light and dark as the main elements. It will be a first person puzzle/adventure style game. The idea is a bit of a mix between Portal and adventure style games like Amnesia (without the insanity element).
Why 48 hours? We wanted to flesh out the idea with a sort of polished prototype and at the same time not spend several weeks on it. The Game Jam format of make a game in 48 hours fitted nicely here. The deadline will be Sunday the 28th at 23:59 (CEST). I’ll be tweeting throughout the development and posting the finished game free for all to play.
