This year, I participated in the $104 Adventure Game Challenge to create a graphical adventure game from scratch in 14 days. The theme of the jam was "A Delusion", meaning that the protagonist must be operating on a false belief, although the player must know that that belief is false. In my case, I opted to go for the story of a flat-earther teen who decides to build a rocket in his backyard to prove that the earth is flat. This is based loosely on the real life story of "Mad Mike" Hughes who perished in February this year.
Due to a busy time at work and celebrating my birthday, I had only 6 days to create this game. Despite that, it has a lot of firsts for me:
- First time using 1080p resolution and all hand-drawn graphics
- First time having every line in the game voice acted (by Jordan Hellier)
- First time having an original musical score (by Jon Paul Sapsford)
There's still some rough edges, which will get cleaned up in a later release, but it should be enjoyable enough.
