At the edge


Details

Build a game that focuses on the use of adaptive music.

Wait... what is adaptive music? From Wikipedia

In video games, adaptive music (also called dynamic or interactive music) is background music whose volume, rhythm or tune changes in response to specific events in the game. 

There's also a pretty entertaining video about it here.

(or just watch it below)

Game jams are about exploring your ideas, gaining experience, and just having some fun, so please don’t feel stressed about making a perfect, flawless game with no bugs whatsoever or focus on that one sprite animation that just does not look right. So please remember to have fun!
