SpringdokuSunday, 4th April 2021 ◆ River plant (6) Game jams
Back in 2019, I hosted a game jam with some colleagues of mine. Two years later, all now having moved on from our old company, and we decided it was time to run another!
We had two days to create a game based around the theme Spring.
My entry is Springdoku, a small puzzle game reminiscent of Sudokus, and – if I may be generous – The Witness. You can play it over at Itch:
The theme is pretty superfluous to the mechanics, but I'm more or less happy with the gameplay. The biggest flaw, in my view, lies with the random level generation; the game lacks the nuance and elegance that handcrafted puzzles have.
