This was the first time I have participated in the 7drl challenge. I’ve been pretty busy since Sunday so just getting round to blogging about it.
I managed to get the game to a fully playable state, you can die and everything! The game is based around the life of the Souther Grasshopper Mouse. A vicious little rodent who is carnivorous and impervious to scorpion venom. I managed to get a prototype going that is playable end to end so please give it a try, it is web based and the latest build is here – http://www.jimmysword.com/scorpion-mouse/scorpion_mouse.html
All comments are welcome 🙂
However there are a few aspects I just didn’t have time to do before my 168 hours ran out. Little things like title and end screens are missing and the game play is quite unbalanced. I only got around 44 hours through the week to work on the game and it just does not feel complete enough to mark it as finished so I consider this challenge FAILED.
On the other hand this is the first game jam where I have got a working demo ready for people to get their hands on so personally I consider it a success. I plan to continue the game as I believe it has a lot of potential, so watch this space I guess!
