Last weekend, I entered OneButtonJam over at itch.io! The premise was to create a game that only uses one button.
True to my goals of only creating stuff I can learn from, I went for something a little different and ambitious. What I wanted to create was a short narrative based game which takes the player on a journey of mixed emotions. The idea was to have a story be told to the player, while they also partake in some minigames which would try to make them feel similar to what the main character is feeling at the time.
The result was Mr. Button. It may not be finished but the atmosphere I wanted to create was in full effect during the beginning sequence and the feedback I've got has all been great so far so I may come back and finish it one day.
