It's Jesus on a Dragon!

Ludum Dare 36 was last weekend, and I made a game! The theme was "Ancient Technology," so I really wanted to do something with a tech tree.

We were brainstorming what we could do with that when my audio guy, Will, was like "What if it's Jesus... on a dragon?" We all had a laugh, but then decided to run with it. The premise of the game is that humanity has lost all of its technology so Jesus has to recover it. The twist is that it's a young Earth, so it's only been around for 6000 years. Jesus has to go back to 4000 B.C. and start his adventure talking to Adam and Eve. We blended whacky historical figures in because satire!

Ultimately, we didn't get a tech tree in. Even so, I had a lot of firsts on this project:

  • - First time making a load out screen where you can equip weapons into discreet slots

  • - First time having the player control a giant physics object

  • - Most voice acting ever - over 100 voiced lines in the game

I'm pretty happy with it. Check it out!
