Game Jam awesomeness in the works... WILL OF STEVE!

Screen shots of stuff and things to follow.....

And no, it's not geoSteve. Though that'd be fun too.

Screen Shot and Video Link

Sorry this took so long.... staying up all night jamming is for the younger generation. I lasted more than most....

Anyway, a screen shot:

The theme was "Tiny" and I realized there was a lot of indie game developers who felt a bit tiny next to the mammoth machine that is Steve Jobs inovation juggernaught at Apple. It seemed like it be fun to have a game where you get to play Steve Jobs and feel what it's like introducing amazing new products and watching the tiny iphone developers scramble to make apps and not be crushed in the process.

Here is a video (not the official one, but someone's) of the Game Jam presentations: video I was the end-anchor presenter, so to see Will Of Steve (and the resulting hilarity) scroll to about the 38:40 mark.

Going to polish this up and make it more fun!

in order for that to be interesting gameplay-wise, it would have to incorporate meta relationships, such as that of the "tiny" devs being capable of leveling-up to the point of having the option of introducing steve jobs in their own games-within-this game. As in, some of them begin to get slightly big heads after having a title featured, motivating them and other p to innovate like in-grown toenails in the shark-infested, virtual, elite "developer hot-tub. hitting the wrong combo (or right one, depending on your bent) causes a dev to "enervate" a nearby dev instead, depleting his red bull or what have you. Just some thoughts.
