Thanks for the feedback! I tried to use a couple things but there were some mixed up API references in Phaser's documentation.
I would recommend avoiding creating any stark likeness or naming any real life characters, but if you abstract it out I feel like it should be fine.
As a follow up, I'd like to know if this is similar to timed jams (Ludum Dare, Global Game Jam, etc). It says submissions are open for the week of March 3rd, does that mean we can start now?
