My first game for the TwinyJam was about Pharaoh. I've been reflecting upon Exodus in the past week (what with Pesach & all), and had an idea for a 300-word game based on an interaction between Moses and Pharaoh.
Apparently, I have more to explore as concerns Pharaoh. I cut it down to 599 words (300 or 299 words, depending on which Choice you make), but realized that isn't quite cricket for this Jam.
I left Pharaoh where he belongs, in Mizrayim, and opened my mind to new possibilities. Starting out from narrow places.
I watched some ARROW, ate some matzoh, and mulled over what else I could write. Around 11.30pm, I hit on the idea, and wrote the first 127 words before turning in for the night.
