So I tried making my game...and failed. Hard. Spent 8 hours on it already and not even close. :(

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! The key to making an adventure in three hours, I think, is in really honing the game down, scoping it to a pinpoint and getting (first) just the essential parts in that you need to create an experience. Stream of consciousness writing can work, but planning is really rewarded by these limits.
