Hey RJD folks. I’m Kevin Overall, and I just made my run through Hurdles working on Willow. Willow is (well, *was*. I’ll get to that later) a puzzle-platformer in which you navigate a celtic fairy land by manipulating the seasons. A prototype had previously been developed in Unreal Engine, and the goal for Hurdles was to finish off porting the prototype to Unity. The process went fairly smoothly, with the exception of one week. That one week, I actually spent all of my personal dev time working on a game for Ludum Dare 36. So I actually sort of presented two games through Hurdles!
