This game won all categories in PlayJam 2.
The game recieved a extensive postmortem post on the 13th of December 2022. ChatGPT summarizes this postmortem as follows:
The game was created by an individual who wanted to create a new game in a relatively short amount of time. In order to save time, the developer decided to reuse code from a previous game and create new character sprites from scratch. The game includes multiple events, each of which is defined as a class. This allows the developer to easily switch between events within the code.
The game also has several layers of sprites for the background, including clouds, buildings, and a wall. The wall sprite is designed to create a parallax effect, which gives the illusion of depth in the game. The game also includes a class for the player character, which includes a running animation. This animation consists of four different cycles, depending on the character's running speed. Overall, the game was designed to be visually appealing and easy to code.
