GBJAM 5 Timelapse: Global Defense Corps

By October 24, 2016 December 10th, 2018 No Comments

A couple of weekends ago, a couple of buddies and I took part in the 5th #GBJAM and made Global Defense Corps. Here’s a timelapse showing a glimpse at my pixel art process from that game jam.

As I was without a steady Internet connection for the weekend, I was unfortunately unable to Twitch stream any development, but I did have the foresight to record snapshots of progress for any sprite work. Next time I’ll increase the frequency of snapshots so it’s a little less like this…

How to draw an Owl


  • Pyxel Edit (for sprites and animations)
  • Adobe Photoshop (for larger sprite work and text)

Incidentally, the game we built (Global Defense Corps) is playable here…

There’s a very good chance we’re going to carry this idea on and make a bigger deal of it. Watch this space!
