For this game jam I'm planning on making a game about a nonbinary aroace race car driver named Avery!
Originally I was planning on making a racing game but since I have other things that I need to do this month and also since I suck at racing games ( I'd rather get good at them first before making one)
I decided to make it more of a game where you're exploring Avery's life since they like to take things slow at home and they're just a super calm and sweet person.
At the same time a conflict they're having is that some of their fans are hitting on them and like idolizing them which Avery honestly doesn't want. They just wanted to be treated like a normal person....but they also haven't come out to everyone about being aroace which they're kind of nervous about doing.
So! In the game the player gets to make some choices as well as do little mini games while exploring.
I'm planning on doing pixel art since I want to practice and I'm deeefinitely creating this in Unity cause it just feels easier for what I want.
What I'd like to do is:
- Have a day system
- Have like 5 different mini games
- Have more than 2 different endings
- Let players be able to save the game
- Maybe let players dress Avery up???
What I know I'm probably going to do instead is:
- Have two minigames
- Have two endings
- Have a save system
I wanna keep this game short and sweet so I might even cut it more who knows >->;
I came up with 7 different minigames yesterday because I was just doing a lot of brainstorming but the two things I'm probably going to do is have the player be able to take care of Avery's cockatiels ( They have two) and also be able to meet their neighbors.
I'm in the process of fleshing out Avery's neighbors so I'll spill more beans about them tomorrow maybe? Or just some other time this week.
Anyway I think that's about it for now! To everyone else participating in Ace Jam I wish you all goodluck! C: And don't forget to take breaks when working!!
