My Experience

This game was based off an older one of mine called Magnetic Terrain. I worked on it for a decent amount of my freshman year of college, but eventually dropped it and decided to start a new project (Floaty Fighters). I didn't want to redo it, and I didn't want to fix it, so I left it. A couple years later, my friends saw the game and wanted to try remaking it, but more compact, juicier, and with more roguelike elements. We originally made it for Global Game Jam, polished up for a couple weeks after, and released it for free! It's been a while since I've used Game Maker Studio 2; I mostly worked on the UI and other back-end systems. It was refreshing! Overall, very fun project to work on.
