ScreenCap1 The theme of the 48 hour world-wide game-making even was the sound of a heartbeat. Quite a bit to go on. Yep! ScreenCap2 TheSheep TEAM SHEEPS reunited again for this one! ¬†Eagan Rackley (Programming,¬†Ukulele¬† Magic), Ian Faleer (Audio Composer Extraodinaire and Savior of the Game Jam) and myself (Game Art, Game Design) had an awesome 36+ hours of inspired work! ScreenCap3 Given the time limit, I am very very pleased with our game. It is beautiful, uplifting, and mostly complete all at the same time!

This year the Cleveland Game Developers participated in another amazing Global Game Jam (#5!)! The theme of the 48 hour world-wide game-making even was the sound of a heartbeat. Quite a bit to go on. Ha!

I pitched a concept that is really out there (and The Sheeps totally made it work!):

If you are looking at a heart rate monitor, there is activity for each 'thud-thud' of the heart. That is life. What exists in the silence? Is it another world?

What if the game was a 2 world puzzle game that required the puzzles of life to be solved in the times of silence?
