The theme for the 2019 Global Game Jam was "what it takes to make a home". We completed the project on time, producing a 10-20 minute gaming experience. Players were encouraged to plant trees in an arena, improving conditions over time until a community emerged.
I brought my dialogue manager to this project, and once again it became the heart of the project, allowing us to include 35 dialogue sequences, including poetry and spoken word entries vocalized by members of the community, provided as rewards for achievements in the game.
We presented it at the Enthusiasm Collective community showcase in February, 2019.
