You Were There

A small, quiet narrative experience about shared moments.

I wanted to use Nordic Game Jam ONLINE 2020 to learn how to use Bitsy, a minimalist game engine I’d never used before. For a long time, I had thought about creating a story following the narrative beats of the song Copacabana, by Spanish band Izal. The constraints of Bitsy allowed me to focus on the pacing of the story and the dialogue, and the game finished second in the “Most Emotional” category, based on votes from the rest of the jam participants.

  • Designed the narrative, wrote the dialogue and created all of the art
  • Used the project to learn Bitsy from scratch
