I’ve started to re-code my 2021 Global Game Jam game in hopes to get it published.
Here is the repository for the GGJ version: GitHub - jephstahl/ForgetMeNot: Global Game Jam Design Lost&Found 2021 for Move38 Blinks
This version of the game is a quick memory challenge experience where 7 blinks are assembled in a group representing a flower with petals. The petals will turn on a few moments as you try to remember them all. Then they will turn off and back on. You must find which one had changed.
The challenges goes through 5 different colour palettes and ends with a different style of puzzle… with one led on each petal blink on.
My goal in the rewrite of the game is to build on this. I want to make it a puzzle challenge that you could play on the subway or anywhere. I want to put as much levels in it as I can. If you fail… back to the beginning. Maybe have 3 ‘help’ button presses that would replay the last puzzle incase you need help.
Once I get the core code down, I have ideas for dozens of different level challenges. I want the player to be surprised and delighted when they get to a new type of puzzle level.
I’ll be posting code updates to this thread as I progress. Any feedback would be appreciated as I progress.
The feeling I would like the player to get with the game… is something like a Rubik’s cube… well maybe more like a Nemisis Factor puzzle (Brian's Damn Puzzle Blog: Nemesis Factor).
