During this weekend I participated in the One Hour Game Jam, which happens every Saturday. The purpose, as the name tells clearly, is to create a game in one hour.
Funnily enough; I was pretty successful to be my first participation, finishing the game. Of course, the scope of the game was really small, but I really wanted to test what I was capable of. I wanted to explore the possibilities of the console for game making, so I ended up creating a game in C# for the console. It is Windows-only so far, but it is to be expected that it also compiles in Linux with Mono.
For a first timer, it is quite a hectic experience, so I wanted to keep it simple. I used tools that I know and focused on what I was trying to convey. The theme was “return”. It is a very simple puzzle-like game in which you become a desperate programmer that needs to end the execution of a function that is iterating too many times. As usual, my games are related to programming/computer stuff, and, as expected, everything happens on the console.
Please, play the game and tell me what you think about it!
