A typing arcade game made in one hour exactly!

I recorded the entire development process, from me creating the empty project to compiling the final builds, which all took place in one hour.

This was made in one hour when I was in the San Francisco airport waiting to fly back to Las Vegas, flying the cancelled GDC of 2020 due to coronavirus. It was made for the one-hour RigidJam, as part of my daily game jam I was doing for my week in San Francisco without a GDC. It was also submitted to the Decade Jam, Never-Ending game jams, and 2-Year game jam as everything should be.

Everything was made from scratch in that one hour using GameMaker and BFXR, with the exceptions of the font (obviously) and the music which I made with FL Studio a while ago.

Development Timelapse


The theme from RigidJam was: Endless Void

Dev Vlog

While not explicitly about Typing in the Void, this "non-GDC 2020 Week of Games" Dev Vlog was recorded a few hours after the game was made, as soon as I arrived back in my Las Vegas apartment.
