Zirrrus posted a topic in Wizard Jam 6 ArchiveGo play the game here: https://zirrrus.itch.io/jau Wizard Jam! I'm getting started a little early because there will be several days where I won't be able to cram in any jamming. This is what I have after a first rough brainstorm: A mining game in the style of Steamworld Dig, the world is made up of blocks, you can mine in 4 directions. Some blocks contain materials - not sure what you're doing with the materials yet, probably plotting the humans'/the robots' downfall. The top of the screen/world has a town where you deposit stuff/refuel/whatever. There also is a Danger Layer which is always visible and is triggered after a certain time. If that layer does not have enough(or not densely packed enough)blocks, it falls down and the Danger Layer moves up. You're gathering materials but at the same time have to avoid turning the ground supporting the town into a swiss cheese. You can spend resources to create scaffolds and such to hold up blocks. Bonus stuff for if there's extra time: - Some sort of story/framing/explanation of what is going on - Upgrades for your mining powers, carrying capacity... - Monsters/enemies/dangers. Might be essential to make things more challenging/fun. I've got a bit of experience working with tile-based games by now, so it doesn't feel too ambitious(...yeah, right). But I'm also strapped for time this jam...
