Making games in 48 hours is hard. But what can you do to increase your chances of success? How can you prepare yourself for a game programming competition, such as the Global Game Jam, which takes place this weekend?
We love our job so much we can’t stop coming up with cool game concepts even when we’re not at work. We entered the Global Game Jam with out latest brainchild and are quite pleased with the result, a puzzle game where you have to keep the spoken word alive in a world driven by mind control.
We never back away from a game making challenge so we’ve decided to participate in the Ludum Dare game development competition. 48 hours of programming, designing and producing visuals and music. No one to count on but yourself. Sleep is for the weak.
Hi! We’re PreviewLabs and we build game prototypes faster than anyone. To put our money where our mouth is, for our inaugural post we’ll give you a look at our participation in the Global Game Jam 2010, where we made a fun platform game from scratch in 48 hours straight. Enjoy!
