Hi all here's a video that highlights the 1st week's goals of pitching a game idea then seeing if anyone would want to team up.
You don't have to do a "Pitch Video", but you can also post your game idea for the jam here. I've posted both my examples pitches below just in case you don't want to sit through 8 minutes of me not trying to sound pretentious and insightful. Please tell me what you think.
A 2D side scroller narrative fairy mash up created from some grade school students that tells the story of candy driving someone to steal and lie to feed their addiction even though it causes problems with friends.
Mechanics: The player plays different characters in different scenes that tell a cohesive story.
The moral of the game: Obsession with something can hurt friendships.
Pitch (Teen to Adult)
A 2D side scroller modern fairy tale where a woman in S.Korea is killed by a man in the bathroom who is suffering from schizophrenia and self labels himself a misogynist.
Mechanics: The player is the female character and the game offers 3 endings. The player will be warned about explicit content, but will not be warned what will get them killed in 1 of the endings.
The moral of the game: Extreme alcohol consumption may lead to death.
