Father and Son Game Jam
I’m not a streamer guy. I don’t like having a camera pointed at my drooling grimace for hours while I stumble through a game. With that said, I am very excited about a stream I have planned for tomorrow. Gabe (who is 14 now) has been learning Python at school and decided he wanted to try and re create Space Invaders as a summer project. He asked me if I could make some artwork for it and pretty soon we were designing a game. Our game is called Too Many Doves and features one Jim Darkmagic. Gabe went to work on the code and I drew him some placeholder artwork so he could test getting images into the game. After a night of work (almost all by him) we had what I’d call a functional prototype.
We’re going to keep working on the game during my normal stream from 1:30 to 3:00 PM PST tomorrow on the PA Twitch channel. I’ll be doing artwork while Gabe codes. He has plans to put special abilities in and asked if I could draw a fireball so this should be fun. Come hang out and help us make a video game!
