the Itch.io Highsight Game Jam #1 (Atari Remakes!) runs from the 2nd to 12 February 2018 and I’m considering participation as it would be enough time to complete something.
I looked through the list of Atari 2600 games and there is absolutely crazy amounts of old games to choose from.
I decided on a further development of the game ‘Combat’, putting in modern elements and features expected by players nowadays.
Software used for this was Phaser.io (Typescript), Photoshop, Illustrator, Tiled and MODO as well as Visual Studio 2017 as IDE, source archiving with GitHub.
Development was done on Windows 10 Desktop and a Windows 10 Laptop using Visual Studio 2017 CE & Wamp locally.
As always, I streamed on my Twitch channel during the event. I will be spending the run-up time to the jam fleshing out my ideas and determining the technology stack to use for this submission.
