Ack, there were only a handful of themes that I didn’t have a concept for. Skimming the other rounds after all the votes had been cast, I didn’t think “Alone” really stood a chance. Have to make a trip to a friends this weekend. Going to be stuck on a train for 12 hours of the jam. I figure it’ll make the time pass a little quicker.
I’m thinking I’ll go with a bit of a Hulk rip off. You’re a man who’s been turned into a grotesque monster during a government experiment. All you want to do is escape the facility and be left alone. I’m still itching for a randomly-generated game, so I figure it’ll be a platformer with randomly generated levels. Some simple combat, and some pixel art.
If I can knock that all out quickly enough, I’d love to implement something like the power-up system in The Binding of Isaac, with random power-ups that cosmetically alter your character. So you’d end up with a different play style and look with each run through. But heck I’ll be content if I get to the point where my randomly generated levels work out I’ll be happy.
Good luck to all the jammers!
