Whatsup everyone! The GMC Jam 5 is officially over and the results are out!
I’m both happy and sad. Happy, because we didn’t do any worse, sad because we didn’t do any better. Although there were more entries this time, and we got 3 first place votes, so I guess I can be satisfied about that.
I can definitely say I learned something from this Jam: Don’t make really really complex games and a shit tutorial
What do I mean? Watch this video by Raocow (casually plugging, by the way)
That’s probably what killed our game’s chances. We got some people who totally understood the game and the rest who didn’t get it at all. Next time, we’ll be sure to avoid making that mistake.

As you can see, I went overboard and added some weather effects into the game. Why not!
More on Ascension coming soon, don’t worry. We’re making some nice progress and you’ll see some more screenshots soon. I might pick up that Screenshot Saturday thing, we’ll see.
