Because Game Jam 3 team announcements are tonight at 9pm via live broadcast, I've decided to bump our "usual" Friday broadcast up a day this week. The broadcast will start at 3pm EST. We'll spend the afternoon browsing the depths of NG, followed later tonight with the 9pm unveiling of IdeaTron, a robot that literally craps out game ideas for the game jam teams.
The original plan was to force a theme on each team, but to give the teams a better chance to get something they like, we might instead just crap out ideas one at a time, and the first team to call an idea in the chat will get dibs. If any teams hold out for too long or don't show up, they might just end up with a forced assignment or a set of three to pick from. This game jam was especially short notice, so it would be awesome if more people joined up. You will have from tonight until 11:59pm EST Sunday to complete your games!
This is where the live broadcast will be, starting 3pm EST unless we start sooner.
The winners of the Nov / Dec writing contest have been announced!
