Despite a chaotic week, I was able to patch together a concept game for the audiogame jam. The game is called "Shepard's Crazy Stairs" and puts you at the bottom of an immense staircase. You must climb to the top while avoiding absurd obstacles coming down the stairs.
You can try the game over at https://gamejolt.com/games/Shepards/290742
The game is not perfect but it stands as a concept, with five levels of increasing length and difficulty. We experimented with auditory illusions like Shepard's Tone (hence the name) and spatial positioning cues in stereo and dolby. It's a little bit halloween-y considering the context, but we also tried not to take ourselves too seriously.
It was made in three sittings (one in a coach journey, one at a friend's place, and one all-nighter to round things up) with sound design from my friend Tom Casey: https://twitter.com/tomcaseyymusic
So with that in mind, please let us know what you think about the game! All feedback is super welcome!
Thanks for taking the time, enjoy the rest of your day!
