Game Jam Recap: Birdmail
in Game Development on May 22, 2023
Here's a recap of our exciting game development journey, filled with brainstorming, challenges, pivoting, and unique touches. We initially embarked on creating a game with boids, which led us to implement efficient boid movement using Unity's Job system. However, we encountered challenges with WebGL builds and had to pivot our concept midway. With only a day and a half left, we shifted gears and created a game where players retrieve packages from escaped birds. We added an engaging navigation system, sketch-based story intro, and even AI-generated voice narration. Despite setbacks, we managed to create a playable game in just a few days.
