Day 2 of the futureworksmcr Game Jam!
So the game advanced a whole bunch from the last update! I’d like to introduce you to Landslide McQueen, a rich New Yoik City stockbroker who is sick to death with the same walk home every damn day.
So jump on your briefcase and show those faceless suits that you’re a free spirit! It doesn’t matter how much money you lose, in fact, the more the better!
Get a higher score by chaining together knock downs - if a flailing suit takes out another, you’ll get double points. You can also try and inflate your score by grabbing some air time off the ramps and curbs.
Considering this game was made over two days, I’m pretty proud of what we achieved. Original art, animations, scripting, gui and audio were all built by a team of three people from two different universities (Futureworks Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan), and building relationships with these guys was really cool. Also got to pass on a bit of game jam advice to a bunch of people totally new to game dev (namely, “think of a small idea and then cut it down to 10% of that, you’ve only got two days”) which was pretty ace.
joegraingerfutureworks implemented a really nice screenshot utility script, which got all the beauty shots you see above. Hopefully showcase the audio by Oliver Reynolds-Duffy in a video coming soon!
We’re making a few final tweaks (social media support, an about page) but we’ll be putting the finished game up for download on itch.io and *hopefully* to stream on kongregate (the physics of the game may not run well in browser, we’ll have to check!).
If any of my followers would like to be first to play/test this silly little thing, or would like to know a bit more about its development (lol) plz don’t hesitate to send me an ask!
