I was playing Curious Fishing and found this on your page, realized that I recognized it because we had done this Nokia Jam together. Love the idea, very fun.
What if the Nokia 3310 had a book eReader?

This project was created in a few days for Nokia Jam 3. The goal was to make something matching the restrictions of the old indestructible Nokia 3310 phone. The main constraints were the two-color palette and the 84x48 resolution.
The Nokia 3310 was actually my first ever phone and my introduction to texting. The font and menus are the most nostalgic elements for me, so I decided to make something that focused on those.
I find it fun to re-imagine common software under such tight constraints. My Nokia Jam 5 entry was Nokia Solitaire.
