Post jam, behind the scenes look, what's next?
Hello everyone. Just want to post an update here on the blog about whats coming next now that the zelda jam is over with. Before I do, I just want to say that the FemaleLinkJam was a really awesome and fun competition to participate in, definitely my favorite gamejam I have participated in yet. My entry, "The Zelda Within" placed in 7th place. I wanna thank everyone who downloaded and played the game. If you enjoyed it or hated, thanks for trying it out. I know, it is a very strange game. But definitely had a ton of fun creating it.
Many indie devs participated in the jam and 20 fan made zelda games were entered! (19 not counting mine) There are some really good entries made by talented game developers and I highly encourage you to go check them out and give them a try. I played through some and really enjoyed seeing what others have made. So if you get a chance be sure to check out all the awesome entries over here at this link:
Lots of really well made games on that list.
Behind the scenes look:
Originally I was planning on creating a "Making of" blog post for "The Zelda Within". Just kind of going over the process of what went into this month long game project. But then I decided, I am too lazy to type something like that up. Instead, here is a bunch of "dev" screenshots I took along the way while creating the game. These screens can give you some idea of how the game was made. Made with Unity 5 engine and Blender3D of course. Enjoy!
The zelda jam was fun and I really enjoyed participating in it but now that it is finished I don't think I will be participating in anymore jams for a while. I want to get back on track and continue working on my own personal game projects for the time being. Actually, I already began working on my next game project shortly after submitting my entry for the zelda jam. I am working on a simple mobile game for Android which I plan on having out before the end of this month. Probably even sooner then the end of this month as the game is already about 70% complete. I will talk more about my upcoming game in the next blog post real soon.
That is it for now. Thanks for reading. And definitely check out some of the cool zelda entries up on GameJolt.com
