The Best of Adventure Jam 2017

Now that I’ve finally finished playing every entry in Adventure jam 2017, it’s about time I wrote about the best games of the jam. These are the games that really stood out for being especially fun to play. That’s the only criteria I am using: How fun was the game?

First I’d like to make it known that, to the best of my ability, I played every game in the jam from beginning until end. I didn’t just start up each game, play a few minutes and shut it off.

Adventure Jam 2017 Post-Mortem

The two weeks from May 5th-19th were completely insane for me as I made a game in only two weeks for Adventure Jam 2017. It was a welcome break from Lutra City Mysteries to make something fresh and new and get my mind out of the rut.

Adventure Gaming Tips: Fixation

Sometimes, in the course of an adventure game, we get to a point where we feel completely stuck with no way forward. We know there must be a way forward, but it seems like we have tried everything possible and nothing is getting us any further.

This happens to almost every adventure game player in almost every adventure game at some point or another. So, how can we get out of this rut and start moving forward again?
