"Help Grunt learn some cooking abilities while your master teaches you how to in an old, primitive language that you have to interpret and master. Stand your ground and achieve a high score while the recipes keep getting more and more difficult in this endless arcade experience."
My first global game Jam was with a wonderful and super talented team of 8 persons. I did the two characters: Grunt and the master. Model, handpaint and rigg, all in 48 hours.
We wanted a low poly handpainted bright look, so the Grunt model has 1362 polys and a texture of 1024, and the Master model has 1428 polys and two textures, for body 1024 and for hat 512.
Also, I had time for some blendshapes for the master: One of the ideas for this game jam was not use language at all, so the master comunicates you trought sounds and facial expressions.
