Game in one hour

Have you ever created a game in one hour? (Not including adding mochi and stuff..) I sometimes do when I am stuck in public transport with my laptop, or just at home, but I never actually upload them or anything.
For me, it’s more of a proof of concept, where I try out new gameplay mechanics or game genres.

The game I uploaded to Kongregate, Laserball , was created in one hour.

I think it’s kind of impossible create a decent game in a hour. I mean, something you rushed to test if x code worked properly should stay a test and never be submit as a game…

I’m not sure, but now I need to know what’s right!

Both are correct, the last comma is optional and can be removed if the meaning remains clear. For instance, the sentence: “My parents, Rodney, and Elma went to a picnic.” would become ambiguous if one removed the last comma. In your case, I think GB15 was just being facetious.

Note: I’m not a native English speaker, this is just the way I was taught the rule.

One hour isn’t really enough to even think through a concept properly. All you can do in that time really is reskin a game you already have, so you’re unlikely to get anything even a bit original.

I believe it counts as already planned, but there is nothing put on file, no music, no art, nothing done but the work done in your mind

^ I agree.

Ace_Blue, I learned you’re supposed to put a comma before the “and.” I think the no comma way is old-fashioned.
