NG Game Jam 8 and an impromptu Art Jam are a GO!

The GAME JAM theme is: Cabin in the Woods.

Yes, the theme is inspired by the (awesome) movie, BUT your game SHOULD NOT be about the movie.

Your goal this weekend is to make a game that centers around a cabin in the woods. Horror, comedy, fishing, WHATEVER YOU WANT. We let this idea marinate for a while and we think people could have a lot of fun with it.

We are calling this "Cabin Jam", so please include the Cabin Jam logo in your entry and link it to the Game Jam page to cross-pollinate. Luis made a logo for light backgrounds if you prefer that. The best game will snag $25 store credit per team member, max $100.

Tag your game "cabinjam" and post the URL in this thread. Simply paste the URL by itself on its own line and it will render out all pretty, like this:

  • Leave Cthulhu Alone
    Leave Cthulhu Alone by Matzerath

    All Cthulhu wants is to return to our universe and enslave us! Can't people leave him be?

The ART JAM theme is: The Missing Eye.

If you've been reading the news, you saw that a huge eyeball washed ashore in Florida. People are speculating over what creature it belongs to. A giant squid perhaps? Or maybe something else? This weekend, illustrate the creature with the big blue eyes, who happens to be missing one. The best one will receive $25 store credit.

Tag your art "eyeballjam" and post the URL in this thread. Simply paste the URL by itself on its own line and it will render out all pretty, like this:

  • cthulhu saves the world
    cthulhu saves the world by jouste

HAPPY JAMMING EVERYONE! Use this thread to post anything you want about progress in either jam. It can be an orgy of creation.

My neighbor's name is Tyler. He's one grade below me.

But he likes playing games, and not so much making them...

I'm currently working on ironing out the bugs in a WiP game I'll be demoing at Boston Indies this Monday night (nothing new, it's an old game). But if anyone wants some quick art done, I'll be happy to help.

Art Jam, yay!! I can't do the game jam this time around, but maybe I'll be able to find time for a pic... we'll SEE!!!

...but, should we just post our final images here in this thread or in the art portal? If the portal... should they be tagged with anything specific (artjam01, missingeye)? ...and what about unscouted peoples? Sure would be nice if they could be included in a tag search for contest and events like this too! Yep, it sure would! :P

How about we make a second newspost specifically for nonscouted artists to put things on?
