My 2nd game jam experience!

So I recently participated in another gamejam, this time with the theme of making a game in the GameBoy style of games. This includes a color palette of only 4 colors and controls that were compatible with that of the GameBoy. While challenging, I was able to complete this build within 5 days and post it with about 4 hours to spare. If you want to try the game you can see it here.

I learned a lot along the way to making this, and while my artistic skill isn’t where I would like it to be, I am slowly improving on Pixel Art assets. I find that the lack of variety of colors helped with sparking creative ways to display contrast on my graphics and allowed me to focus more on the gameplay itself. I also was able to make some music that was done in a chipset style thus adding more authenticity to the game. Some of the text came out blurry for some reason (probably due to the small resolution of the GB 160×144) but in the end I am happy with this game built over such a short amount of time.

If you do decide to check out the game, I would appreciate any feedback provided as I continue on my game development journey!
