Game Jam 6 Go! Dec. 1st, 2011 @ 02:54 AM Reply

Welcome to the NG Game Jam 6!
Read about it here.
Submit your finished games here.

The Newgrounds community suggested theme ideas and voted. The theme you guys chose was Hallucinations.

The team names are just placeholders, so feel free to change them when you end up publishing your game.

Do you usually have trouble keeping in contact and working with people online? Kurt Luther, a former Newgrounds intern, and his research group from Georgia Tech have developed a tool called Pipeline to help make online collaborating smoother. I haven't tested it out myself, but I'm looking forward to giving it a try this weekend!

For those of you who are interested it giving it a try for this jam, the guys at Pipeline are going to be giving away $100 each to the three best scoring games that make use of the system. Read all about it here.

Last note: let's see some screenshots in this thread! Remember, this is a community effort!

I'm kinda dissapointed the them was hallucinations though. I knew it would be for a while, and I already have a bit of an idea...

I think it's awesome of kurt to offer the extra prize money; pipeline is a great way of organizing projects. I'm not sure how well suited it is for a jam, it doesn't have any live chat that I know off and with the small number of poeple in a team there's prolly not as much need to be very organized. Still, it could be helpful if used in conjunction with some live messenger, definitely give it a try.
Good luck everyone!

That's really cool.

I'll vouch for pipeline.cc; it's a place where you can create a private forum for you and your group.
That way you can:
- Have some discussions with your idea, and make sure that your final idea is clear and agreed upon.
- Have a place to save files (old and current), either for getting feedback or for sharing.
- Keep track of what tasks are finished, what needs immediate attention, and what needs tidying up.

I think this is the worst part of the random teams. Sometimes you get a good draw, other times you don't. But if things don't work out, and there's a spot available on our team, I'd gladly let you fill it.

Wow, I thought it was going to start December 1st midnight! Or has it started Wednesday midnight? Either way, I'm now confused, so when exactly does it end now with the extra day?

Could've been better, I guess, but not a bad lineup at all, I'd say.

I'd be a little bit skeptical of MSGHero, his application said he only had 6 months experience

Also, Austin, because you were a bit late posting the teams do we get a two hour extension on top of the 24 hour one (it doesn't matter because we already have a massive extension anyway).

I've been told by a reliable source which wishes to remain unknown that MSGHero knows what he's doing.

It only needs a built in chat system and it would be perfect!

Also, I'd still like to get some confirmation on when *exactly* the deadline is.

Hopefully the guys with no example or anything do know what they're doing.
If not I'd gladly take up that offer.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume an open spot on your team if a member hasn't shown up. They're probably still sleeping or still think that the jam will begin tomorrow, because a lot of people assumed that because that's how it's always been. Starting on midnight of the day it should start at..I think.

Yeah, not everyone gets in due to lack of people or too many people in one skill area.

Don't worry bro, loads of people don't get to be a part. The list was just of the signups - not necessarily the confirmed players. I'm not going to have the opportunity this year either. But hey, if we keep working and improve our quality of submissions, we may have a shot next year. :]

Chin up, friend!
