Skimming stones has always been something I love to do and this captures the slow but exciting feeling of collecting pebbles and tossing them into the sea, the 'bridge' section is soo cool and different!!
Made for the Mix and Jam 2020, where the theme was 'mixing genres'.
For my genres, I wanted to try and mix in something outside of games - so I started thinking about songs, and what it would mean for a video game to have the structure of a song. Pop songs are often divided into a structure like - intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, outro. In this game, you play through a short narrative that follows this structure, repeating the verse and chorus of the gameplay, with a separate intro, outro, and bridge.
It's an experiment, and certainly doesn't line up perfectly, but was fun to try out and think about a different kind of narrative structure for a game!
The music doesn't fit too well, but it something I wrote a few weeks ago while learning how to make digital music, so is also in a fairly rough state and was useful for testing :)
Thanks for playing!
