Six guys stayed for pretty much the full 48 hours at my house and a few more dropped in during the course of the weekend. It was an awesome experience. Everyone helped everyone else out with ideas, coding, art, and motivation. It was a very cool, creative atmosphere, and we all admitted that if we hadn’t cooped up together for those 48 hours, we wouldn’t have been nearly as productive or creative.
If you ever have a chance to be involved in a game jam you should get involved. And if you can do it with a bunch of other like-minded people in the same physical space, even better!
I can’t believe that after five years, I’m now just one week away from sharing Resonance with all of you! Sometimes with all the stress and frustrations of the final few months of development, you lose sight of the game you’re working on. All you can see are those flaws left to fix, or the seemingly insurmountable list of things to do.
But now that the game is out in reviewers’ hands, and the GoG sample is out in players’ hands, I’ve been reminded of just how special this game is. I’ve received a number of glowing emails from players and reviewers who have loved the game. And suddenly I remember why I made this game!
So if I could ask a favor to all the soon-to-be players of Resonance, it would be to tell someone what you think of the game. Tweet it, blog it, call your mom and let her know, or just shoot me a quick email! Word of mouth is going to be huge to get this game out there and any positive feedback will help encourage me to make more games! Thanks for your support!
Some news and updates:
If you want a boxed Collector’s Edition of the game, you have less than a week to order your copy before they become unavailable! Order now!
The Steam version of Resonance will be delayed. Due to an unfortunate situation beyond our control, Resonance will not be purchasable on Steam until later in the summer, on or around the 25th of July. However if you want a Steam version but don’t want to wait, you can purchase the game from Wadjet Eye Games and they’ll send you a key that will unlock the game on Steam.
I recently was interviewed on the Random Access Podcast. Check it out!
I was also on the Just Press Start Podcast. Listen to it here. JPS is also hosting a contest to win a copy of the game!
I can’t wait to hear what you guys think!
