This was a great learning experience. This was my first time creating a traditional rhythm game and a PacMan clone. The original concept was "PacMan, but with music". As I started building the rhythm mechanics, I decided to distance the game from PacMan and try more experimental mechanics. Instead of power-pills that turn the tables on the ghosts, the player uses their rhythm skills to keep their "Soul" from draining away. The result feels like a simplified version of Crypt of the Necrodancer and 3D Pacman.
All in all it was a successful Jam. I learned a lot and got me more comfortable with the tools and techniques for making rhythm games.
