This is a playthrough of my own game, The Untitleds, which was submitted to the Smile Game Builder RETURNERS 2022 Game Jam (hosted by AmalgamAsh). In the video, I added some personal commentary and a brief look at some of the upcoming and planned functions and features for the future.
The Untitleds Video Playthrough
The Untitleds is the first, last and only game I will develop to completion in Smile Game Builder.
To quote AmalgamAsh’s review on Itch.io:
This is the CompanionWulf game I want to see developed and continued. This is the game with the systems that shall bear the most fruit, both for budding developers who need to understand how menu systems might be designed as well as experienced folks who haven’t wrapped their head around how to progress through the limitations.
And with that said, continuation on the game is assured. However, development may be very slow.
The menu system is challenging, notably with SGB’s current limitations and the way it processes events. And, with that said, this will be the focus until it’s fully functional.
The Smile Game Builder RETURNERS 2022 Game Jam (hosted by AmalgamAsh) is now on! Get your creative juices flowing and participate!
Ash’s Promotional Video
Will Wulfy Join?
I stated after the previous game jams that I would neither host nor participate in any jams for awhile. Despite many requests – especially by Ash himself – for my participation in this game jam, my stance is this (quoted from the dedicated channel of the SGB Discord server):
I’m not guaranteeing, confirming or denying, or promising anything, but I do have an idea and IF I decide to continue with it, then this will be the game for the jam (but I’ll keep many of the details to myself for now).
That said, I’d be more interested in properly playing and testing – and this time video showcasing – all the game submissions instead.
