I Am; isn't a game & more like a reminder of positive thoughts. The idea is to have short positivity messages that you can navigate or allow to auto-scroll.
The idea is inspired by "I Am; Daily Affirmations"(Android/iOS.) My best online friend recommended that app to me in my time of need & it was effective. If my version helped you like I was helped, I'll be proud!
Since this an entry to Nokia Jam, I tried to make the visual design aesthetics are inspired by the old Nokia 3310 (the most popular mobile phone in my country when I was young.)
I didn't incorporate the theme UPGRADE in the entry, but I'll cheat think positive and say I did: "Upgrade your life!"
This is the first finished project I make with Construct 3. Most of the games I have on my Itch.io & GameJolt pages are made with Construct 2. Migrating to the next version of the app wasn't very hard but since I don't have a subscription, I had to work with the limitations of the free version.
As of the time of writing, I spent between 10-15 hours on this project over 3 days. I did go over some trial and error. I had to re-learn some of Construct's workflow quirks. (I have to thank Scirra for their in-depth documentation.)
I spent 2 hours on the first day trying to create a sprite font. The bitmap fonts I had were all too big. Then I realized that nokiajam already provides better fonts for my usecase for free in their Jam Resources. They also offer sound resources that I might download in the future. In the end, I settled for the font "Ark" by somepx.
At first, I published the project as an unlisted prototype and gave the link to some participants in the Nokiajam challenge, that version had only the auto-mode & 15~ messages, with their feedback I added 15 other messages and added control mode which became the default.
I took inspiration for the positivity messages from the app mentioned, but I only took 5~ messages directly from it. I used my memory to come up with the other messages myself. At the time of this writing, there are 30 in "I Am;" I'm planning to have more by the next update.
