Thank you everyone who participated and also those who joined in the Gift Jam on Christmas Day!

The idea behind Gift Jam was to release games on Christmas day as a gift for anyone who might not have enough other presents to play with. Unfortunately I pitched it at the bottom of a post and not many people knew about it. On top of that, I couldn't even finish the game JohnnyUtah and I were working on in time to participate.

So THANK YOU AGAIN to those who DID release games on Christmas day!

Top Three Gift Jam Entries ($150, $100, $50)

  • Secret Santa
    Secret Santa by Nutcasenightmare

    What time is it? CHRISTMAS TIME!

A fun physics puzzler by Nutcasenightmare, developed using his new site, Craftyy! With Craftyy, anyone can build and remix HTML5 games right in their browser. Secret Santa shows off some of the amazing potential.

  • Perilous Presents

NoLanLabs came up with a classic arcade-style game where you get the presents in the boxes while keeping the bombs out. Charming!

  • Holiday Survival: Z Mas
    Holiday Survival: Z Mas by graffanim8r

    Can you survive the Holidays?

This got some serious downvoting due to HTML5 browser compatibility issues. The premise of shooting endless waves of enemies has been done a lot but the production values are good and it was cool to see theinspiration and graffanima8r pick up Construct 2 and make their first ever game!

If YOU had dabbled with Construct2 last month maybe you'd be a published game developer and on the front page right now! Just sayin'. There's always 2013!

Two honorable mentions from the Gift Jam:

  • Bloody Christmas
    Bloody Christmas by 53xy83457

    It's bloody Christmas again. Let's ruin it for everybody!

I need to publicize these things more I know. If Sosker had known he might have waited one more day and tagged his game with "giftjam2012", could have maybe won a prize!

Winners for the Winter Flash-Off will be announced in an upcoming post. There are a bunch of great movies to sort through.

Other news:

Some site bugs have been fixed, clear your cache if you still have issues with buttons not working.

We have playlists! Improvements are on the way, along with a global listing and more good stuff!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I look pretty smug when I said that.

What I meant was that there was other stuff like craftyy , and Im thinking of stuf like Playcrafter(the whole site is now down, and gone. The link just brings you to a blogpost) and Sploder. But craftyy really dos have potential.

I really wanted to do something for the gift jam, but I was bogged down with college applications and just general lack of inspiration - it's been biting at me a lot lately.

I wish I could give more.


Good.

You guys should totally update the Series channel with new entries. Like not updates to existing series (since that's still happening) but as in actual new movie/game episodes, such as Toons These Days, Leo and Satan, Asdfmovie, Hellbenders, TOME, ZTV, Epic War, etc. Right now the channel feels kind of outdated. Actually it's been like that for awhile...

Thanks for the link - I knew of PlayCrafter and its eventual fate, but what I didn't know, that the blogpost points out, is that all PlayCrafter games got destroyed.

I'm also acquaintances with the guy who made Mockingbird, the Game-making Game. It was also a service that went offline, taking all its games with it.

I really hope I can avoid whatever missteps PlayCrafter & Mockingbird took, but in case I can't, that blogpost is huge proof the next thing I need to get for Craftyy is exporting your game so it works even offline.

Thanks again!

Its good and reassuring to know that you are taking browser game development to the next level. I got a chance to play around with it and it was fun.

Thanks! I saw all the remixes you did and cool stuff you made, and that fills me with fuzzy feelings. Fuzzy.

I wonder if Nutcasenightmare is going to do a sequel to Gap Monsters. Perhaps even using the this Craftyy tool no less.
