I developed my first video game

I took part in my first ever game jam, GAMERella, back in November 2020 and co-created a little indie game called ‘DeadPlants’ as part of it. Dead Plants is a queer indie platformer game made by Avery, Alessandra, Cody and Rhonda as part of the Gamerella theme of “normal”. Inspired by the work of Legacy Russell, Dr Kishonna Gray and our experiences as marginalised people, you alternate between night and day cycles – regenerating  in your room at night with queer plant cyberspace and code-switching to survive and resist heteropatriarchal capitalism.

I will be writing a more in-depth blog post soon on the experience of creating my first video game as part of a game jam and the issues our game explored but for now you can play our game over on our itch.io page here: https://deadplantscove.itch.io/deadplants
