I'm Ellie, and I live in Nevada, but am originally from Sweden. I found this jam through the Ludum Dare page, and am really looking forward to jamming this upcoming weekend. I am conscidering doing the extended deadline, as I work evenings (so there goes Friday, and it's my turn to host -and cook for- DnD that Sunday, lol) but we'll see.
My background is in game design, and I particularly enjoy level design, but am neither programmer or artist, so it'll be an interesting challenge. Oh, and I will most likely do this jam in the Twine engine. :)
Best of luck to us all!
