It's pretty funny how in some peoples teams just one person's absence completely ruined the game, when we managed to get our submission finished and submitted on time when our wild card never even showed up in the chat ONCE.

also play our gaem

Scratch that, we can't finish. I'm going to bed. Our game will be out in a few days, it's unfortunate we didn't finish. The game was too long and complex, we should have gone for a simple game like I'm sure most other people have done.

Screenshot ;(

Sad, because this game screenshot looks really nice, but good luck than to finish it, don`t forget about it, even you are not in the time.

Well done to all. Some great games here. My personal favourites are BearBound and Eskimo River Rush.

I demand that this event happens every 3 months, not every 6 months.

Just as I suspected. Googling BearBound comes up with tons of gay porn... Oh well it's a good game anyway, right?

Lol! So here we thought we would have this awesome game to show everyone at the end of this jam, and it comes out being the game with the lowest score out of any of them XD

i think hidden beneath some really rough controls is a pretty sweet game though, I'll talk to WallRoss about getting rid of the sliding-ness. Maybe we'll keep working on it too for a 'deluxe edition', that could be fun.

All in all, this was a great way to wrap up 2010! Lets go celebrate with tea, and crumpets!

that's not fair, we should have been frontpaged!!! >:C Besides are you sure that the whole engine was made during the game jam? or did you take some of the code from mr toastache (for the moving part) ????

Wallross told me taht he fixed the controls and sliding-ness, but was wating for you to get online so he could send it to you. :/

i was amazed at how Subterra got a higher score than Frozen Fate. well, i guess tahts fate. Ross completely hates me now. (Wazzup Boona???)

ill be fixing up some problems in Subterra an update it soon-ish, mebbe in an hour or so.

PEACE GUYS!

loved the Jam,c an't wait for the next one. :D

I'm sure his engine was made during the game jam. He is an awesome coder, after all.

Thanks man!

And the moving system in toastache is quite different from the one in Iceboy. In toastache, the background moved while the player stayed in place. In iceboy it was the opposite. So it would have never really worked even if I had wanted to re-use it.

But other than that, I'm glad you actually reached the final level! So the game's not *that* hard.

Also I forgot to say, your game was pretty awesome. Really polished too, albeit a bit simple.

I have a suggestion for the upcoming NG Game Jams, I'm not sure though if they will ever be used but still it's worth the try, namean?

First of all, I'd like to just say that these types of things should come more often instead of waiting 6 fucking months. Honestly, I think it would be nice to see future Game Jams come every month or two, now I know what most of you cats are thinking..that is way too often or just isn't "realistic" etc. but the thing is if the Game Jams come more often like hosted every month (or two) not only would more chumps evolve into skilled NGz but more and more people wanna get involved with this if you know what i'm saying.

Last but not least, If the organiser(s) won't be able to do a Game Jam every month or two because of the lack of prices, it doesn't always have to be a big ass price or some free NG item from the shop, I honestly think it would be nice to keep it simple like givin the winning flash or top 3 mad exposure (frontpage or whatever..) price is nice but I honestly ain't in it for that I just wanna build my skills up, ya digg
