With this being our first game jam, and with myself and DillonSemaj only having been working with game dev and GM:S for about 4 months, nerves were pretty tense going into the first day...
Until we got about 3 hours in and realized how quickly and efficiently we were working compared to the our previous project. Even though we still had plenty to design and incorporate, the things that originally took us weeks to accomplish we were now getting done in a matter of hours.
That's not to stroke our own egos. It's a comment on how something like gm48 can really show someone how far they've progressed. I was not even planning on entering into this jam, for fear of a significant lack in ability, but my partner said "we might as well" and we accomplished something we find to be considerable with the time allotted to us.
So thanks to him, and thanks to the individuals who host gm48. You've all showed me that, while I have much more to learn, I don't completely suck at this.
