Grim Lightning

NOTE: I have noticed issues with Unity playing this in Chrome. 

As a Grim Reaper, it’s your job to bring souls to the Underworld, but unfortunately you’ve dropped all the souls you were carrying. Collect them as they float down the River Styx!

This game was made for the 2021 Global Game Jam at the virtual Pittsburgh site. I served as the primary programmer for the jam and helped with designing mechanics. With the theme being “Lost and Found”, the team originally wanted to create a SkiFree clone where the player (the skier) had lost their clothes and needed to collect them.

However, the team was heavily stacked with artists who were not excited by the idea of creating and designing clothes or a snowy environment. We continued chatting about ideas and games. We were all playing Hades a lot, and someone suggested a Hades-based bullet hell type game. Yet, with time running short, we scrapped that idea, and I proposed merging our two favorite ideas into this.
