1. Hi there! What's your name? Want to introduce yourself?
Heyo! I'm Della! I'm 22, and a visual development artist. :D
2. Did you participate in the last jam we held? If so, what do you plan on doing better this time? If not, what's your reason for joining?
This will be my first game jam ever! I only very recently found out that people made small games in jam sessions about two years ago through IndieCade. First time I knew about indie games through them actually. It's really cool to see what people can make in such a small amount of time and I wanted to be a part of that :D
I hope to make friends and connections with this jam :)
3. What games are your favorites? Did any of them inspire you, or made you want to make your own?
I love games with a twist in gameplay, and/or ones that have a really nice message and feeling. Some of my favorite games are The Beginner's Guide, Journey, Undertale, Monument Valley, and it's not out yet but I did play it and loved it, Pavilion and Abzu. I also like Skyrim haha too many hours on that.
Again it was IndieCade that really inspired me to be very interested in being a part of this. For some reason I thought that there was an unspoken rule to make big games like triple A companies so when I saw games that were smaller it blew my mind!
4. Do you have experience with game development? What did you do/with what engine?
For my senior thesis I made a game with two friends with Construct 2. It was very challenging since it was really just a small kind of demo to show off the animation and the "what ifs" of it. I did the background art, level design, and put it in Construct 2. I don't have any experience in programming, and I'm more interested in designing the art for the game, but it was a cool experience and I enjoyed working in a team!
Some art and concepts of the game, Empty that I made with my friends can be found on my portfolio: http://dellafolio.blogspot.com/
5. Tell us about something you're passionate about!
I enjoy cartoons, beautiful stories, walking in parks/hiking, and feeding my dad's pigeons. I also like watching How to videos and stop motion films.
