Although I have no part in hosting this game jam, I just figured that I would make a discussion based off of it to kind of simplify what all has been going on.
This game jam started on January 2nd and will end on the 9th which gives all participants one week to construct a game based on the theme, which is given below.
Rules: All games must be made during the time this game jam takes place so any earlier entries before the 2nd will be disqualified for cheating and any late entries will be disqualified (depending on how late it is) Any game idea is allowed as long as its your own idea (not stolen from someone else) including music, sound, art, and the overall game.
Grading: Not sure how exactly sans7657 plans on grading each game whether he picks one out of the selection as the winner or he individually grades them on a score and the highest score wins. There might be a chance that the winner will be a result of voting that will be public to anyone and participants will not allowed to vote for their own game, but can vote for others.
Anyone is allowed to join and even though its already three days in, you still have time to make up a game and enter the competition, so far there is just:
Even though sans7657 is participating in this, he is not allowed to win since he is the host and the winner will just receive bragging rights or help from the host on a specific game that you are making. So sans7657 will offer to work on a game for you, if you don’t want any of these prizes then you are allowed to just have fun.
Any submissions will be posted on this discussion so we can keep track of who’s game are already made and I don’t think there is a specific time on the 9th so just about any time will do and the winner will be chosen on the 10th or 11th. Just depends.
The theme is: Everything has a cost
Everybody get to coding!
