Jam result

Thanks to this generator, here's  a wonderful card that show my jam's scores !


It's a jam product

The game was designed in 48 hours for the GMTK Game Jam 2019. This year, the theme was simply "Only One". I built this game around the concept of finding the only one person that fits his description. 

The game uses colors and I'm sorry for every colorblind people that won't be able to fully enjoy the game. I haven't had the time to make a colorblind-mode.

As a side note, the game uses weird old-english for comedic purposes, it makes the hints harder to understand, but I think it's also a part of the game. There's no time limit to read the text so feel free go through the internet to get help. I made use of this tool to help me translate it : https://lingojam.com/EnglishtoShakespearean

Technical notes

Each game is different, there are 102 characters on screen and each time the only one is another person. Every person is procedurally generated and depending on what he is wearing, the hints also change.

The game was developped with the Monogame Framework in c# with Visual Studio 2019. The web port was made after the jam with the help of MonogameWeb.

The music is The Old Tower Inn by RandomMind.
