Ludum Dare is one of the world’s largest and longest running Game Jam events, where creators are challenged to make a game from scratch in a single weekend. Ludum Dare #42 ran from Friday August 10th to Monday August 13th, 2018, with the theme “running out of space”.
This was the first game jam I’ve participated in. Because I was in the process of learning and improving my skills with ReactJS, I decided to use it to build this simple game as sort of an experiment. It uses Redux to manage game state, and Sass for the styling. Due to the time constraints, I made only very simple graphics using Inkscape, and wasn’t able to implement any animations or CSS transitions.
