I decided that since I make music, dabble with fiction writing, and want to expand my visual art skills, that visual novels might be a good fit for me.
Because I'm a sucker for time-limited contests, and figured I'd never actually do anything if I didn't, I joined a Game Jam on Itch.io.
The particular Game Jam was "The Unmentionable Jam." The goal was to create a game that would be unmentionable in a court of law (at least by Apple lawyers). I joined pretty late, so I only had four days to make my very first game.
My goal was a game that was both unmentionable, as well as explicitly avoided any inappropriate language or visuals.
I was also inspired by "Putting the Crap Back in Crapcapella" -- https://mrbeany.bandcamp.com/album/putting-the-crap-back-in-crapcapella -- I knew I could lean in to the crap, even though many people might find it unmentionable.
That leads us to... "A Crappy Game": https://yam655.itch.io/a-crappy-game
It is a game where you try to go to your boss' party while not losing your job or pooping yourself.
And because I'm here and I make music, it even has its own 4 track EP: https://yam655.bandcamp.com/album/a-crappy-game-ost
