Orchard - #1BitClickerJam

Posted on 28/04/2017

Been a while since I spoke of writing a game engine in JS. The problem with writing "just an engine" is that you can't really know what it needs. So that never really got far, however it was good practice. And recently I was able to put that practice to use by finishing my first game written in JS (it's worth noting that I also didn't use any libaries).

The game I made was for the #1BitClickerJam and was called Orchard. It's a clicker/idle game about growing a tree and trying to accumulate as many life points as possible to max out all the upgrades. It was received really well, one of my more popular games despite it being relatively low effort. It placed 9th in the jam, out of 160 total entries, however it was only 1 of 3 games in the top 10 to have over 10 ratings, having 14.
