roles: GAME DESIGNER | PROGRAMMER
12 second mental (puzzle) challenge, in which you have 12 seconds to forge a painting. Don't do this at home.
PROJECT BRIEF & FEATURES
Create a 12-second long game based on a mental challenge. Only use basic programming concepts (basic logic, no arrays/for loops) and your own art to build the game.
12 second timed challenge
Copy the (randomised) painting set-up
Pick-up and apply paint to the blank canvas
Mix paint to get certain colours
DESIGN CHALLENGES & DECISIONS
I wanted to make a puzzle game themed around choosing/mixing colours and painting.
Quick understanding of the gameplay was key, so I chose one of my favourite artists (Mondrian) as a visual inspiration because of his recognisable and bold colour blocks, easy for the player to understand and replicate.
Add a bit of colour theory for getting the right colour and the stress of a 12 second timer and you're done!
