I had found out that the NG game jam was going on after it had started, and I joined up kind of late. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do it or not. The first team I had talked to didn’t want me as a programmer because I used stencyl instead of native flash. A couple other people messaged me and I was thinking I didn’t really want to do it so I held of on replying. Later that night I got another message from someone saying that they were an artist and musician looking for a programmer and I decided I’d go for it.
The jam turned out really well. The game wasn’t the best but I pulled off some pretty difficult programming feats, and the art and music all came together really well.
This was my first experience in a game jam working with a team that I worked really well with. I didn’t know at the time but I was making a good friend that I would be working with for the next year.
