#indiesvspewdiepie Game Jam with Arrogant Pixel – 1st entry of many

So, I’ve decided to take part in this game jam hosted by GameJolt and Pewdiepie sponsored by YoYo Games (creators of Game Maker studio). I’m proud to be helping Arrogant Pixel bring together a game from scratch in 72 hours. The top 10 voted games will be reviewed by Pewdiepie on Youtube! The jam started at 5am this morning (GMT) and we need to submit the game on Monday at 5am. #nosleep

It’s basically a popularity contest I suppose but I KNOW that we’re going to produce something fantastic that is going to be really fun to play.

Since I’m the only one here at the moment, I’m just sketching out some quick scribbles for the main character. We kind of have an idea of what we are doing but will need to wait until Ben (programmer & fiance) and Assad (game boy musician) get to the base of operations to really begin work. I’ll be helping with art and PR stuff…let’s see how that goes!

We really don’t have that much time but it’ll be interesting to see how much work we can produce. Bit stressed because I really should be doing Uni work….but what the hey! Even if we don’t win, we’ll have one more product under our belt and one step closer to releasing our main title in the new year!

Please follow our progress on Facebook and Twitter over the weekend and don’t forget to vote for us!
