Well, if memory serves me correctly, the Power of Three was never finished?
It would be definitely something worth hosting again though.

Damn, I thought no one would ever catch on!

A weeklong jam would be great. I did the 7DFPS jam in June and it was really cool to see everyone's progress updates every day. With more time everyone was more relaxed and had time to comment on how people's ideas were developing, it was pretty cool.


Happy Robot Day 2014! Play our latest GAME! It's in 3-D!

Congrats to the Elvidian team, they did a beautifull game!
Well looking at all the submissions it was pretty obvious that they were going to win but IMO saying the runner ups would be a lot better for all the teams, since there were no official judge reviews and thats fine considering the time it took to reveal the winners, revealing the runner ups would be the best way to let the highest rated teams in the contest know they did a good job and also giving some tips on where to get the right inspiration for the next Game Jam.
And also fellow musicians even though few of us are mentioned in the reviews of the games i played all the of them and music was generally really good!


No mather how good you are sometime, somewhere, somehow...
Someone will blow your mind and make feel a beginner again..

His team is amazing, they deserve it and whoever doesn't want to stand for it should just grow a pair and accept it. I'm sure he and his team worked hard on their game just like everyone else did. Instead of asking for the bar to be lowered for more fairness...

I think people were more demoralized by them winning a third time in a row than anything. I don't think a single person suggested they be exempted. It won't be much fun when everyone gives up and it's only them submitting will it? You 'grow a pair' and take the attitude elsewhere. Almost everyone in this thread has been totally reasonable and has avoided confrontation. If you're happy, you should express it, if a majority is unhappy, they all should express it. It's not a crime to say "Hey, I didn't have fun this time."

Don't try to stir up the coals on a cooled fire, please.

Haha, lets get our pitchforks and torches :P We know who to go after now.

All I know is I wish I was a part of their team :P But my other hand is filling up faster.

Haha, what a rip off. Well to be fair, the few comments on our game almost all mentioned how great the music was. And our music WAS great. Musicians amaze me.

I am honestly not trying to start a fight. I'm only stating my opinion, and my opinion is that getting demoralised, losing confidence or feeling annoyed about JAZZA's victory is pointless and totally the wrong way to look at it. JAZZA and his team are talented and experienced. They deserve their victory and whoever loses confidence over them winning three times in a row is being overly sensitive or has the wrong attitude towards the game jam. As I said, the right attitude is to take that victory as motivation to get better because that ultimately produces the best result for the whole game jam and for yourself.

I like a little competition, but I love it when I get pounded into the ground. That means I have more people I can badger with questions, and more to learn :3

I look at the stuff I did a few weeks ago and go "wow, look at how much i've grown! I though I was good before, but now..."
and if you look at it like that, then all you see if yourself getting better ^.^
though you gotta watch your ego with that ;)

the only thing that kills me is when I submit something I start looking at all the flaws in it and go "oh, man, they're gonna hate it" - then I start putting down my own creation in the hopes that all the negative i'll get hurts less.

Well our game didn't win but the one that did wholly deserved it. The Jam was great fun and a few things have been knocked off the bucket list with our game:

Thats a lot of things achieved with one NG Game Jam. Great Fun. Great Event. Great Theme (not as ambiguous as other jams -GGJ was ouroburos ffs ie anything you wanted-) For that I thank you. Hopefully will participate in some more jams. Sauce, The Sauce is awesome.

Hope the rest of you had as much fun as me and my team did.
