Catching Up: Empty Spaces

Empty Spaces is a game me and a partner, Chantal Horan, made for the 24 hour UOIT GdSoc Jam in September 2013. I did the code and she did the art.

The theme was “Space, the Untamed Beast”, and I figured, well, what if there was an untamed beast that could only be detected through the empty space he occupies? And thus it was so!

This was my first game jam, and so far my most successful. I even had my mother addicted for a while, and the only computer game she usually plays is solitaire!

I’m planning on updating the game and releasing the full version this summer, and for that reason I’m not releasing it right now but you can see more information (and a gameplay video) here.
