A jam of my own

One thing I’ve learned about myself after participating in a couple of game jams: I like having deadlines.

So, I’m going to try setting a deadline for a personal project that I’ve been meaning to make progress on: a game about spoon theory. I want to have something playable (not necessarily done) by the end of March.

My aim here is:

  • a fun game
  • that leaves the player with increased empathy for/ understanding of folks who need to consciously manage their energy/stamina

… with a bonus goal of the game being somewhat relaxing and not too taxing. The game should be a good stim. It should restore spoons, rather than take them away.
