GLOBAL GAME JAM(ROCK) 2015

This post will be somewhat unique in that I'm going to be writing it, posting it and then updating it as the game jam goes on. I'll even have time stamps and everything so that it's easy to follow along with my little journey right through to the end.

Global Game Jam 2015. This is my first game jam developing a game (my first game jam ever, I did the visuals for Shapes & Sound in 2012) so I'm pretty excited! The theme wont be told to us until 5PM, and wont be publicly announced until 5PM in Hawaii (i.e. the last "5PM" for the day) so I'm just here waiting and getting myself even more pumped for the event. I'm actually at work until 7 and wont be home until an hour after that, so i'll be off to a slightly late start, but not to worry, I'll just have a lot of time to conceptualize. I kinda of know what I want to make already but that may change once the theme drops. I'd love to make a simple side scrolling narrative driven game or something akin to Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, but we'll see...
