I want to participate in this game jam, but I also don’t think I will have enough time and energy over the next week to give it my all. Roguelikes are awesome, however, so participation is still a must.
Elements of Void (placeholder title, final title TBC) is going to be a collaboration between Pål Trefall (Rogue Station, Han Yolo and the Mysterious Planet) and Alan Charlesworth of the Indie Ocean YouTube channel.
Due to life commitments we won’t be starting in earnest until tomorrow, so today is Day 0. Our aim is to try and change up the usual ‘bump masses of enemies’ formula and maybe pull in a design influence or two from other niche game formats.
The main objective, of course, is to have a playable game. Only slightly behind that in the priorities is to have a game which is interesting and evocative rather than a dry rehash of everything familiar.
Watch this space for more on Elements of Void…or whatever we end up calling it.
