I’ve gotten the results from my public opinion poll on what game I should make. I will announce it at a Game Expo this Saturday, Feb 9th. In the meantime, I was hoping to win a game jam to generate a little more local attention for the sugarheart corporation.
I did not win, although my team made a pretty fun game.
It’s a standard metroidvania, works best with xbox360 controller. It’s missing a few things, background, sound effects, enemy variety, mildly clever AI. I was really going for publicity but I learned two new skills. The unity animator, and the tilemap feature. I got so good at the tilemap piece, I’m confident I can throw together a multilayered 2D collidable map in no time.
I may make a new blog post soon about what I’ve learned, but right now I’m preparing for the Game Expo and a Unity Game Development course I’ve signed up for.
