Whew! Itís over. That was one hell of a jam. Evolution was a challenging theme to condense into a game in such short amount of time.
My game Next Generation was definitely an ambitious life simulator game for only myself to do.
Lessons learned: If you want to enter the compo, when you take your ďbreak,Ē donít take it at 8 pm and play the Game of Thrones board game till 6 am the next day. And donít bet drinks while you play either. Just donít do it.
But I had so much fun! This idea was actually planned to get scrapped. But with all the research I was doing on the biology of reproduction, hereditary traits, and evolution I couldnít help but have the urge to create it! I donít think Iíve every learned so much and it took a game jam to do that.
In traditional at home game jam fashion, my diet consisted of only burritos, pizza, hotpockets, and beer.
Iíll be updating the game all tonight and after.
