Before I admit failure, I did spend 6 hours today working on a game. A kind of ancient Japan remake of Paperboy (not a clue).
The concept worked out fine and I got the Java Script game loop and event handling working fine (after dropping any notion of using OOP) but towards the end I stumbled upon BaconGameJam after seeing a post on Ludum Dare, its another 48 hour game jam organised on Reddit… and it was starting in 6 minuets!
The theme: Reverse Perspective
Take the usual idea or stigma of a game and do it from the opposite perspective.
So this throws my plan out the window somewhat, the next 48 hours will be devoted to coding the game and ruining it with my artistic flatulence.
