This weekend the Patapsco APPlied Club (and honorary member, Matt Cole) is participating in a Game Jam! We are working on our brand new project – a game called Hall Sweep! We are meeting all day Friday and Saturday to get as much work done on our new game as we can in the time we have.
We started the day by getting all of our gear setup, which was more time consuming for some of us.

After we got all setup, we spent some time reviewing our jobs for the weekend and the screen assignments. We each created an enemy for the game and we decided on all of the game play and flow. After we made all of these decisions, we each sketched out our screens and made a list of all of the assets we will need.

Once we had our sketches complete and the list of assets done, our Project Manager Ali, conducted our first scrum meeting of the day to review each of screens, make suggestions, and review the asset list.

Right now we are programming a prototype of each of our screens. Stay tuned for more updates throughout this evening and tomorrow!
