Game Synopsis

Lights out is a super simple game where you keep the lights out. The name of the game sums up what you do. However it’s not that simple. There are 7/15/26 malfuntioning lights in the room which constantly turn themselves back on. Your job is to keep them off for as long as you can. If all the lights are on, you lose.

Post Mortem

Well, this was my first short jam in a while most other jams were either really short and a full week long. For this jam I was focused on make a decent game while keeping the scope low enough that I can make it while keeping my commitments over the weekend of the jam.

The idea came about after spending around an hour pondering ideas. It can be hard to get an idea when you have no-one to talk to about it. I eventually came up with only one button teleporting, which is what I developed. While I can’t say it went smoothly, it did go well for once. I did get a few weird bugs such as the gravity not resetting when you died upside down or the bullets following you after you were already hit by one etc.

Overall, I actually found this jam to be a nice challenge, not too hard but hard enough.
