We joined Construct 2030 Jam with the theme Future 2030 arranged by Construct 2 and hosted on Newgrounds. We made a game called Escape From Darkness“. In the game we try to escape a dark labyrinth before our light expires. We spent about a week for the game and there are 8 levels to play.
The jam had also the contest format and our game entered the 15 runner-ups sharing the 10th rank. We made the game together with Polish game designer Artur Roszczyk and Polish graphics artist Agata Kowalewicz, coordinated on Skype.
We used dynamic music approach. There are various filter effects on the music. Many events such as menu screen, win, loose, enemy in sight, energy level are tied to a sound effect. This way we acquired a dynamic and long lasting music backing the game feel. You can listen to the original music without in game effects below. To see the effects in action you need to play the game.
