Yeah, but even just modeling stuff in 3D is super impressive. 2D is usually the safe jam option, but there are so many possibilities in 3D.
Thanks! I wish I had time to make some more detailed models during the jam, but I just had to go with the low-poly style. Just don't ask me to make something that has to be animated. xD
Animation certainly is very difficult in 3D, but I actually think that low poly art has a certain charm to it when done right. Maybe I'm not as jaded with it as I am with a lot of the low effort pixel art you see nowadays.
