Last Saturday we held the second Dundee Jam. This is an event where a bunch of slightly foolhardy developers gather together to create games in the space of a single day. The theme for the Jam this time was “build”.
Below you can see a screen grab from my days work – a game called “Up The Garden Path”. It’s very loosely based on the game of Dominoes, with the aim being to build a path from the start line to the finish by matching the colours on the Domino pieces.
I’m pretty pleased with it for a days work. It’s a fun little game but it’s not going to set the gaming world on fire. However, with a few more levels and some more features it could be a lot of fun.

I’ve also made the full source to the game available, so you can see just what a days coding looks like. It also provides an example of how to program my free 2D games engine, the Jam Engine.
