During a Ludum Dare, developers from around the world spend a weekend (48 hours) creating games based on a theme suggested by the community. Ludum Dare events take place every April, August and December.  (Description from the official website)

Selected theme for the Ludum Dare 37 was “One Room“.
Event took place on December 9th-11th, 2016.

I have to say that the selected theme was a big suprise and I didn`t expect it at all. I was forced to come up with some simple idea and there was no time to overcomplicate it.

Timelapse – 18 hours of work in 5 minutes

As a result, I created a short first person story called “Coincidence“. I mainly focused on creating a good visual feeling. Game usually tells you exactly what you need to do so it`s more of a short story than an actual adventure.
