    Ludum Dare 44 was my very first gamejam, which is where you create a game, and everything else in 48 hours! That includes code, music, art, sound effect, no sleep, loads of coffee, oof. It was a lot of fun, and I've always enjoyed watching other people's "Making a game in 48 hours" video, so I wanted to try it out myself. The game I made in 2 days is called Fair n Square, and is an action shooter, with squares! Then I made a game in 12 hours! And finally today it's time to do it in just one hour! Turned out better than expected. Obviously I did some planning, but didn't start making anything before the time started.
    Hey! If you're new here, welcome! I'm an indie game developer, currently working on a physics based game using Unity. This is my devlog / devblog where I show off the progress I make on it. I'll try uploading every week, but I'm pretty busy with university and part time job, so I won't have time every week. But I'll do my best!

    It’s weird hearing him say “unity’s particle system” without the iconic music

    lets go the other way round. make the simplest game you can make in exactly 2 weeks. you're not allowed to purposely do things slow, and you have to keep coding for three weeks (you're allowed to do other stuff) but keep the game simple.

    You'd probably manage to even make the most simplistic game within 10 minutes... I hope I didn't just trigger the development sensor.

    Make a playable game in 30 minutes, then improve it for am hour, then improve it for a day, compare. It'll be like those, draw in 10 minutes then 10 second challenges.

    Well the way I accurately displayed my score in my flappy bird game was I made 7 different “pipes” which were actually logs and then I had them loop forever and if they pasted the player then I added one point and set a bool to false and then when they teleported back to the beginning I set the bool to true and repeat easy enough :)
