King of Jazz : a 2D Sidescroller for Personal Exploration of Game Development
This paper is aimed at giving insight into the development of a 2D sidescroller called King of Jazz. While King of Jazz is in the very early stages of development, it is on a linear and well defined path of development. As King of Jazz takes heavy inspiration from 1920's music and style, it hopes to bring history to life in an interactive media while giving an interpretive take on the time period. Towards the end of development, there will be several complete levels with 4 bigger battles for the player to confront with references to the 1920's. This project was and still is a long dream of mine and with it has helped me develop the skills and experience in developing games.
