New Beginnings Game Jam!

#1 Post by Funnyguts » Tue Dec 31, 2013 10:29 pm

Hey guys! I'm hosting a game jam in the month of January. It's called New Beginnings Jam, and the theme is related to beginnings! Whether that's an act of creation, a prologue, a first meeting, or what is up to you! I encourage you all to give it a shot to get into the development groove this year. If you have questions, please ask them on the jam page, there's an 'ask me anything' link under the header. Thanks for checking it out, and I hope to see what you create!

Awesome stuff :0 I'll see if I can jump in with a super short VN to break away from my larger project, once the demo's out. Followed this on tumblr already ^^

Everyone go for it, I'd love to see lots of different games! (This doesn't *have* to be VNs only or anything, feel free to experiment too!)

Ah! I had come across this originally on Tumblr. Nice to see a thread for the game jam here. I'm going to give it a try.

Applegate said he was in, and assuming he's in I'm also in!
Forever Alone: Nerds the Gathering - A brotome game. (Nerdy Valentine's Day Card and small status update 2/14/14)
Night at the Hospital - Maiden voyage of Team Snugglebunny
Skylessia: Tale of the Boon - Epic fantasy whatsit, currently on hiatus.
Viking Pipsqueak Productions Blog (under construction)

I occasionally frequently draw other people's characters. Now offering delinquentization, medievalization, and cyborgification. Hit me up in PM if you want sprites for your KN or non-ren'ai VN.

EVEN IF THE TENDONS OF MY THUMBS TEAR INTO NOTHINGNESS, EVEN IF I GO NEARSIGHTED FROM STARING TOO HARD AT THE SCREEN, EVEN IF MY BODY IS CLOSE TO COLLAPSE FROM THE 72 HOURS I HAVE GONE WITHOUT FOOD! I WILL DEFEAT YOU!

Finished the opening and have the game's framework in place :) Think I actually might get this done plus it's helping me take a break which is nice.

Please don't spread things about me, even if it's true.

You guys are a lot farther ahead than I am >_< I've only discussed what me and my co-collaborator plan to do.

Ah... I can actually use this as an excuse to put down some kind of deadline to actually finish some decent stuff for my visual novel Image Probably will just be the prologue since the game is so long. Beside I don't dare to think of any small project right now since I want to focus 100% of my attention on my big one ///////// I'm easily distracted hahaha
