Hi there, the jam-man is here!

After a complicated development, I have finally managed to finish my entry for the TV Game Jam. It's simple and very short but I'm proud to have finished on time after all the problems I had.

First of all, I want to especially thank Chris (aka Python Blue) for his effort and for his fantastic work with the music, the game won in quality, thank you very much Chris. And of course, thank you all for your support.

Broken Memories - TV Game Jam 2019 [Juanjo - Python Blue] QrTgVB

The game is freely inspired by TV series "The Haunting of Hill House".

STORY
The protagonist is William (Will), a young man who is admitted to a psychiatric center due to a trauma suffered in his childhood when he lived with his family in an old mansion.

Will's paranoia centers around a red room in the house. This room could never be opened but Will felt and heard strange things coming from that part of the house. A stormy night something woke him up and he saw semi-open the door of the red room. Since that night, Will has never been the same again.

Now he tries to solve his mental problems in a psychiatric center with the help of professionals, trying to remember what he saw that fateful night.

You can download the game and get more info in the Itch.io page:
https://itch.io/jam/tvgamejam/rate/370866

In this jam you can vote (on the same page of the game), so stay tuned when the voting period opens, and thanks in advance.

And finally I want to say that I would have liked to add more interactive elements and make the game longer, but as I said, due to problems during the development I had to cut many things.

Well, I can't wait to see the reactions... don't be too hard.

Juanjo, bravo! Very impressive! I love the sound and tunnel effect used. It nicely represents the feeling of it being a memory. The ambience was excellent. I really liked the surprise I got when I approached a window and heard the rain and then the rumble of thunder! It has a great sense of unease and mystery throughout. The whole time I was anxious to find out what was behind the red door!

Once again Chris did an amazing job, it helped set up the atmosphere, tension, and unease perfectly! He is very talented!

Well done guys, well done! For all your troubles Juanjo you should by all means be very proud of this one. I think it's my favorite one yet!

PS. I noticed the red and blue books next to the lamp... hmmm... I wonder what those could be? Wink

Josh, thank you so much for your kind words, I'm glad you like it.

I would like to add more interactive elements and more content but was impossible... anyway, I'm very proud to finish on time and the most important for me: with no serious bugs!

The work of Chris was perfect, he has an incredible skill to get the essence of the idea and transform into music.

Regarding the books next to the lamp... in the original idea they were something... Razz

OMG!! I have surpassed 150 downloads (currently 170)!

I didn't expect so much interest considering the number of entries and the quality of them... so I'm very happy.

And there are still 10 days left until the end of the voting!

Thank you all for your support!

Maybe it's the game you should develop more to make it "full" ? Smile

Well, we entered the last day to vote and whatever happens I'm very happy with this project for many reasons, but especially because I didn't expect the support I have received for a game so short and made in a hurry.

Thank you all for playing, voting and sharing, thank you very much.

And special thanks to Chris (aka Python Blue) for his work and for his predisposition to collaborate with me always.

I can't wait to see the final results... Terrible Joke

Could this success be related to your choice of the Haunting of Hill House? Or do you think there are other reasons (such as making a game which is even more incredible than usual)?

Anyway congrats, I'm sure you'll win first prize Smile Good luck!

Those kind of games and stories are trending now I guess. And it really fits for VR. Did you tried that Juanjo?

Thanks Simon and Ormusto!

I think the "success" has to do with what you have said both, on the one hand the series I chose is well known and was very successful and on the other hand the real horror stories are now trend... a winning combination, hahaha.

Ormusto, your question about VR is very interesting... I've always been curious about this style and I don't rule out doing something with this technique in the future... it would be a lot of fun.

They prefered the funny games (Seven Days Purgatory ranks #1 in the Fun criteria, and Samurai Sam ranks #2).

However, well done Juanjo and Chris!
#4 over 90 entries is AW-E-SO-ME!!!


You had less ratings than some of the others however, it's a shame. We always have so much trouble to communicate about our games Sad We need a way to increase our exposure...

Congrats Juanjo and Python Blue! Well deserved! Very Happy Even though you got 4th place overall you should be more proud that you got 1st in audio and 2nd in visuals! You guys need to keep this collaboration going Wink I do agree with Simon though, it's a shame you didn't get more ratings, even with it in the top 10, strange?!

Thank you so much guys, I'm very happy and surprised at the same time because I didn't expect this result and the support received.

Here are all the results of Broken Memories:
Broken Memories - TV Game Jam 2019 [Juanjo - Python Blue] B1GT9dg

You all know the difficulties I went through and I almost gave up... but finally I decided to finish something playable and Broken Memories came out. Sometimes you have to persist to get incredible results...

About the voting... in jams the same thing always happens. Despite my "campaign" on Twitter (which was more successful than I expected) many people have played the game but have not voted, there are people who didn't know they could vote or just didn't want to vote... I don't know, but there I can't do more.

And the numbers speak for themselves:
Total downloads: 388
The game has been added to 64 collections
And it has been in the Top 10 of the most popular Itch.io games (it's currently on the homepage but outside of the Top 10)

They are the best numbers I've ever had in Itch.io, so I'm satisfied.

But most importantly... I learned a lot on a personal level and of course, the Chris-Juanjo team is consolidated!! Cool
