My husband, Nate and I successfully completed the Global Game Jam in San Francisco! It was an exhausting yet exhilarating experience. The challenge – build a game in 48 hours with a common theme.
For the theme, a sound file was played of a beating heart – there were a ton of different directions we could go! The craziest part was settling on a game idea in less than 30 minutes so we could start building something right away! Nate and I started out building a rhythm based Uno experience – we were to tap the right card on the heartbeat! Along the way, the gameplay evolved into more of a solitaire mechanic and took on a not-too-bloody, blood cell theme We named it Blood Thinner.
We built it for the iPad, but it is also playable online just the same. Tap blood cells one number higher or lower than your last – Zero and Nine loop around. The faster you tap, the faster the blood cells spawn. Try to tap as many blood cells as you can in 60 seconds to get the highest score!
