Hey all, I'm going to throw the intro questions in here reaaal quick before I jump into the overview of my game!
1. Hi there! What's your name? Want to introduce yourself?
- I'm Cynthia & I'm at the moment primarily a hobbyist illustrator, but can be flexible with a basic to average knowledge of animation and 3D modelling.
- I did participate last time but I got suuuper wound up in doing literally One Thing that I didn't even get to implement any of it in anywhere! But I've learned from that and I've even prepped early this time by reading up a bit of C# a couple days before the jam started. Previously, I didn't know a single line of code! I return to bring my newfound C# knowledge to the test and to make something I can be proud of.
- I typically like point-and-click games, stuff like Putt-Putt/Pajama Sam, Grim Fandango and Ghost Trick are really strong examples but I enjoy Ace Attorney for the super simple investigation modes as well. Those games are what I look up to the most when it comes to potential game ideas for their narratives, but I like Pokemon, Splatoon, Mario and Kirby games (of course).
4. Do you have experience with game development? What did you do/with what engine?
- I don't have any experience but I am pretty interested in messing around in Unity!
5. Tell us about something you're passionate about!
- I like to have a good time. I also like murder mysteries??? (These interests are not correlated.)
6. What are your goals for this game jam?
- My goal is definitely to make some sort of build regardless how small, haha. I've scoped out what I can do within my capabilities and, while C# and being poor at time management were the biggest obstacles last time, I'm making an effort to do more. I'm not pushing myself too hard though, and have been taking breaks with Splatoon 2 since it came out- how can I not?!
7. Any advice to new jammers (if you're a veteran)?
- Do things within your abilities. Cut out extraneous stuff that you're not sure you can handle and make something with the stuff you know and the good good resources provided by the jam hosts! This is basically me telling myself not to do flub and do what I did last time, haha.
Thanks for reading this rather wordy introduction! And now, onward to the stuff I'm going to be working on for the next two weeks!
