Join 'em - GMTK 2021 Game Jam

Join' em is a small puzzle game made by me and two friends (Vatyx & LMNT) for the GMTK Game jam 2021. Which had the theme "connections"

The premise of the game is that you need to connect, rotate and activate blocks using your keyboard and the corresponding block letters.

The complexity of the puzzles grows extremely quickly due to all degrees of freedom the player has, we were very fond of how a puzzle could be solved to many ways.

Was really fun to brainstorm and quickly make a game over the course of the weekend.

I primarily worked on the art for the game and worked collaboratively on design and level design.
It was fun to learn and practice a bit of lighting, rendering and shaders.

After the game jam we decided that we liked the core concept and it could easily be expanded into a relaxing but mentality taxing puzzle game.

We're all still working on this project in our spare time with the aim to release on Steam, Nintendo Switch and potentially Mobile.
Main focus areas before release are:
  • New art style
  • UX improvements
  • Better level design to slowly expose mechanics over time
  • Multiplayer
  • Number of new themed worlds
