So last weekend was Global Game Jam 2020, yey!! ^-^ It was a reunion with our former lead programmer Sampsa who was drawn back to game development for the weekend. :3
Oh, if you getting why-are-there-so-many-emojis-in-this-blogpost thoughts, it’s because the game we made is all about emojis! 😀 Theme this year was ‘Repair’, and branstorming around that and taking inspiration from this year’s diversifiers we came up with this concept: you are a therapist repairing your patients minds/issues, but all text is in emoji-language. The patients will describe their problems in emojis, and you’ll have a few emoji-responses to choose from. O.O You’ll have to put your emoji interpretation skills to the test to really decrypt what is going on! XD
You’ll get a score – in thumbs-ups of course! B) – after each session and you can always call the patient in again if you didn’t reach that coveted highest score. There are a total of six patients, with a unique issues and personalities.
Watch the gameplay video below and if it piqued your curiosity, head over to our Itch.io page to download the game and try it out yourself! ^-^
