My First Game Jam Experience!

Hey everyone! In my previous blog post, I mentioned that I had joined my first ever game jam with an ol’ buddy of mine! I figured that instead of a written blog post about my first game jam experience, I’ll do a vlog instead! Here it is (I recommend watching in HD and fullscreen if possible):

After participating in this jam and using all the artistic knowledge and skills I have gained in the past year (since I started writing this blog), I now have a better understanding of where my strengths and weaknesses lie in 3D modelling and animation in Blender – and how that translates to other areas/fields such as game development. You see, this game jam had pressured me to churn out work rather quickly in order to meet a strict deadline and also forced me to come up with a compromise between quality and quantity of the game assets themselves. And while it was a bit stressful at times, it was also rather satisfying and a lot of fun!

No doubt, I may yet participate in another game jam before the end of this year! We shall see…

  1. Pretty solid. I only joined a “jam” once, and it can make one learn many things with a deadline indeed.
    Hopefully I await a time when we work together too!

      1. It was a visual novel sorta jam called NaNoRenO, back when I was tinkering with Ren’Py, I tried to make an RPG with it, failed, but learned many things anyway. I think it was 2015.
