There's virtually no Construct2 games utilizing the NG medal system, and hardly any literature on how to incorporate it, from what I've searched. I came across one helpful post here. After following nutcasenightmare's instructions, I gave up. Who needs medals, right? (I would love to include medals in C2).

Anyone know who's doing the graphic for Pico Day 2014, or when it's likely due? Just looking back at the Collection pages of prior events, it'd be kinda nice to see each years' picture on the page.

And still is! I wonder if it's still the most reviewed submission on the site too... that stats page was pretty interesting.

Just one question. I take it there aren't restrictions on working with people you've worked with before?

You're welcome to team up with people you've worked with before.

What do you guys think? Maybe I will :3

It would be cool to have more people around who have completed games with multiple tools, so they can give insight about the pros and cons of each. Also I'm on the advisory board for a technical high school around here and I'm gonna be making suggestions for development software to try in class, so more feedback there would help too.

I keep meaning to get back into movie and game jams so YES that will definitely be happening... But also yes, movie jams will likely wait until after NATA. The first round of NATA will be kinda like a big jam anyway since anyone can participate.

The big rule is to not use any commercial / unlicensed material, but you can team up with artists and musicians and whatnot. I was actually thinking, due to the theme we have in mind, it might be a great opportunity to get some artists from NG involved, so I'll probably make a call-out in the launch thread and give artists the opportunity to volunteer.

My one concern now is that any Throwback Thursday post would be bumped by Follow Friday the next day... So I'm thinking about Wayback Wednesdays.

Dead serious.

YES I do want to do this. Preferably with direct Unity upload support, via the ZIP file workaround people do now.

Medals would be awesome... I'm checking with the C2 guys although I have a feeling it would be a good bit of work to get going.

Mahjix is doing the wallpaper. We're trying something a little different this year, because I got tired of the usual gang.

It will be a front page post here on NG! It will also remain linked from the calendar on the front page, next to the deadline date.

Alright. I'll most likely take part in the Ludum Dare shortly before. But since that doesn't take long, and I'm on vacation, I just might come up with something. I looked at some tutorials, and I'm interested to partake in the contest :)
And I'll try to compare it to Stencyl afterwards too, but I'm certainly not a developer, so my experience is quite limited :p

That's understandable. Would score submissions be an easier initial step?

Tom,

Got a question for you about the Construct 2 Game Jam:

Is there any limit to how many games can be entered/contributed to by one person? I'm assuming only one of his/her games would be eligible to win a prize, but I am thinking of both creating my own and collaborating with others.


I just decided that I need a signature.

It would be fine to create your own and collaborate with others. It's even possible that both could win.

Hi, this sounds like great fun. What do we have to do to enter the competition, is anyone welcome to join?
So this Jam is a month and a half rather than a usual game jam of a day (8 hours)?
