Finishing up night 1 of the Molyjam!
There's a good article explaining the jam here. It's a 48 hour game jam, running from 7pm Friday night (03/30) through 7pm Sunday night (04/01). The idea is to take one of @petermolydeux's many game idea tweets and use it to create an original game from scratch.
After brainstorming our way through 4 pages of choice Molydeux tweets over dinner, Issam and I zoned in on these two tweets:
And the brainstorming began!
After some refinement, it's not going to be an FPS exactly - but the idea is to make more of a 3rd person endless runner w/ some shooting involved. You will need to move to the beat to keep running.
Oh yeah, we've been making use of this free little BPM counter: http://www.all8.com/tools/bpm.htm
And are buying our music from: http://www.shockwave-sound.com/
Here is Molydeux's message to the world, just made public via Twitter. We will try to avoid having the player shoot at any aliens. :)
