Merlin's Mess

Please enjoy some images from the development of Merlin's Mess, created for the 2019 GMTK Jam.  It is a hidden object physics game where you need to find the one unique item in the room.

The Jams we participate in are typically completed in a 48 hour period, and this one was no different.  You can see some initial art passes before the settled on style.  We learned quite a bit from this game, mostly to do with how to keep things fun for the player rather than have to keep challenging them.  This game ended up working better as a nice casual experience rather than forcing players to in to a more restrictive resource management system, which the jam version shipped with.

Check out the game for yourself and see how you like it!
