"The Federation demands we learn more about Earth's primitive hairless apes. Intelligence reports that these 'humans' use rudimentary hand gestures to relay information. Learn them and use them to meld into their herds. Meet your gesture quotas! For the Federation!"
Totally Not an Alien is a waving and gesturing game made for Global Game Jam 2017.
As the programmer, the most important challenge was ensuring that implementing the 2D art was a smooth process as there were a lot of sprites due to the amount of animation in the game. I didn't want to make the artist struggle with the engine as there was already so much for her to do, so it was all pretty much done under the hood.
