The first ever Game Jam Allus entered was the Kenney Jam. Taking place over a weekend in August 2018 and hosted over itch.io, the aim of the Jam was to create any kind of game conceivable, as long as it followed the theme of the Jam, which was Time Travel, and the game only used assets created by Kenney.
Our entry was a small 2D platformer called The Invasion, created using Construct 3. The premise of the game was that monsters had appeared throughout history, and the player has to traverse different levels and eliminate all the monsters in a level to progress.
Our submission is only a short, 5 minute game, but potential to take the game further is there. For now though, The Invasion is available on itch.io here to download for Mac and Windows.
The Greek Mytholojam 2018 is a two month long game jam, running from the 1st September to 2nd November 2018. However, due to other commitments, Allus did not join the jam until October. While an idea has already been fleshed out, work on our actual submission did not begin until mid-October.
The theme of the jam was Ancient Greece, with an optional theme of the muses (The Greek goddesses of the Arts). Our game is centered around the greatest of the Ancient Greek heroes, Heracles (more commonly known by his Roman name, Hercules) and the famous myth around the labours he has to perform for a cruel king. Called 'The Labours of Heracles', our submission was developed using RPG Maker MV.
