Finally took part in the Global Game Jam after so many years just visiting the local game jam site as a visitor! 😀 It was a dream come true to see so many people enjoying the game-making craft and working hard to make amazing games over one packed weekend. The quality achieved in these little gems was great and I’m glad to be part of a global game-making community. Sharing my passion with so many like-minded individuals felt like being home.
This year’s theme was waves. The game we created is a local-multiplayer 1v1 game where your character claps in 3 different ways in order to send sound waves towards a particular, currently topical, person’s toupee. These sound waves make said person’s toupee fly off if done enough times. You can counter your opponent’s waves in a rock-paper-scissors fashion in order to untilt your opponent’s tilt of the toupe thus tilting it in your favour. The person who manages to tilt the toupee far enough sends it flying towards their opponent. Doing so wins the game!
