I’ve begun work on my very FIRST game Last Shot. I made a post in the interest check thread a little over a year ago now about making a sports game given the limited number available and it received positive feedback, so here is the first look. In it, you play a high schooler that joins their school’s basketball team. The story follows you on your journey to become the best player you can. Will you be able to lead your team to a championship? Or will you just become another bench warmer lost in the sea of hopeful dreamers?
The games is still in a very bare bones state with a low word count and just a few options. If you’d like me to continue working on the game, I welcome all sorts of feedback. The end goal is to create a product for all of us to enjoy and the only way to make that happen is with your help!

7/4/22 - I am proud to announce that the wait is over! With today’s update you can now play through the entire first game. (The word count now sits at 5,720)
6/14/22 - Today’s update was more about fleshing out what we have than adding new content. We’ve officially passed 4,500 and 5k will be coming within the next few days. Tomorrow is the 30th day since this post was made and my trust level won’t allow me to edit it for a while. The game will still be getting updates, however all of them will be listed in the replies to this post instead. (900 views away from 10k btw. Thank you for all the support and keep up the good work!)
