Second Jam of the Year - Movie Game Jam - Feb 2018

Hey Guys

So decided to change the format up to more of a post-mortem style over a hey here is my game play it and vote style.

So the Jam for feb was the Movie Game Jam, which ran from the 2nd to the 13th, then had an additional 2 weeks for voting.

For my game I chose to base it on the 1998 Sci Fi master piece of Lost in Space, titled Escape the Planet.

This ended up being a bit of a hard project for me, i spent way to much time on the early area, and on making it look good, and kind of dropped the ball a little for the rest of the game.

Ended up having a few people doing lets plays of it during the voting period, with one putting it in their top 5 based on the visuals.

Now there are definitely things I would have done differently, mainly around how the controls were handled for the space ship, and I need to work a fair amount on my level design, but  I am happy with the end result.

Out of the 115 entries it managed to pull an overall of 48th, with the full results by criteria below.

After this and the Jan jam its clear I need to try and pull a bit more focus into my level design, and graphics. Pretty games seem to do better. So I will have to keep that in mind for the March jam.

Thanks for reading,
