Last month, Scott and I participated in the Global Game Jam. Together with Ashley, the extremely skilled artist we found, we made a fun little game that highlights the concepts of the cycle of life.
Ashley did a nice writeup on her blog: http://hardshellart.blogspot.com/2012/02/yggy.html
Download Yggy for Mac and try it out! It’s even cuter when you see it animated. Sorry, we wrote it in Objective-C from scratch, so there’s no Windows port. But you can see a video of the sprite animations on Ashley’s blog, above.
Overall, it was a lot of fun to sit down and make something over 48 hours. I was really pleased with what we threw together, because it feels like a complete game, even if it’s pretty small and short.
If you’re in Minnesota, you can come play it tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb 8th) at the IGDA Twin Cities!
