We are starting a new series on our YouTube channel called The Infinitive Podcast where we talk about game development, game jams, design, art, and even our favorite games.
The first episode is about Ludum Dare 47 and the game we created called Chrono Crack. The theme of the game jam was "Stuck in a Loop" and with that we decided to create a time looping, dungeon crawler with guns. The main enemy being a "zombooger" or zombie booger.
The core mechanic was the degradation of objects such as pillars and doors. The only way to progress through the game is to find time rifts that fast forward you into the future. As you travel through time, the dungeon crumbles opening up new areas to explore.
