Back in the day we created a computer game…And you can play it here!
This game was created for the event TV-spelsjam back in 2017. The event was held in the community center “Klossen” (Hence the name). TV-spelsjam is a small convention with a lot of video games some talks around the video game culture and technology as well as a great place to hang out and meet people.
The game itself was made in the evenings and weekends of December 2016, the goal was to make a quite fast platformer with speed-running in mind. Due to the short time-frame and lack of spare time there are a couple of interesting glitches in the game (such as “edge jumping” to get high speed jumps) but they, in my opinion, adds extra charm to the game.
The main character “Jammy” is the convention mascot and not our creation. Jammy is but one of many “Cibas” of diverse backgrounds and styles meant to make everyone feel included. The first levels features some artwork from the Melon.js tutorial but the “ice” theme was wholy created by us. The music of the game is a chip cover of the song Shoreline by Broder Daniel made in Milkytracker by Åke and his sister Sara. We called it “Chipline” and felt really clever.
Since the game is not available on the web page of Digital Spelkultur anymore we decided to dig it out and put it here. It’s icy theme works very well with our own style. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
