Platform: PC Team Size: 3 Time Frame: 40 hours Role: Artist, Designer Honors: Best Design - Game Jam 08



Timber Defender is a game created for the DePaul Game Jam 08. The rules are that teams of 3 have about 40 hours (no sleeping!) to make a game from scratch. The concept of "green gaming" was presented at the start and we got to work.

In Timber Defender, you are a Forest Sprite trying to protect your forest from invading lumberjacks, hippies and industry. There is a basic rock paper scissors mechanic with this game as you can change to three different forms, each with different abilities and skills to managed the invading humans.

Although the final version of the game wasn't fully functional, this video shows the basic idea we managed to get out. Not bad for two days straight without sleep I think.
