Games » Personal Growth (game jam entry, 2015)
At work one of my tasks is to further develop the authoring tool StoryTec
, with which you can build Adventure Games including some pre-defined minigames. Having worked on it for quite some time I wanted to put it to the test by checking out what can be done with it in just three days. And since it is aimed squarely at non-programmers, it also forced me out of my comfort zone, concentrating on drawing and story for this game.
In the end it became a tale about learning live lessons, which I felt was a great fit for the topic "Growing". Drawing so much and working alone during a game jam where interesting new challenges, while working with and sometimes around the limitations posed by the basic scripting and limited number of objects provided by the tool was a very interesting task tingling my programmer senses. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to programming again for the next game jam.
