Hello, It’s been about 18 months since I’ve started a game project due to finishing University and starting a full time job. That’s why I decided a game jam was the best way to reignite my creativity and motivation. I chose the GMTK game jam as it was hosted by Mark Brown of Game Maker’s toolkit who has a brilliant Youtube series on game design. The theme of the game jam was ‘Genre without mechanic’. This means that the game needed to be based on a genre and take away a key gameplay mechanic such as shooting in a first person shooter or not having the ability to jump in a platformer.
This was a game jam project in which me and a friend created a 2d sidescrolling hack and slash game. The theme of the game had to be halloween with various smaller themes/modifiers available to alter the gameplay. We chose hospital as a modifier and it turned into creating a room based hospital zombie game that you see above. The game took around 14 hours to make out of the 24 hours available.
Please take a look above.
