Game Jam 10 Winners, Upcoming Jams 2014-07-21 10:51:47 Reply

Thank you everyone who participated in Game Jam 10 last weekend! I've played all the games now and it's time to distribute the ten Crypt of the NecroDancer Steam keys to the winning teams.

My only strong opinion about this jam was that WolveGames was the clear winner. Ymotana looked great, felt great, had me the most curious about "The Unknown" and had a satisfying reveal at the end. The user votes agreed and I've decided to stick with the user voting results this time around, so the Steam Key recipients are the teams behind these games:

  • Ymotana

The Bells of Atlantis was the only winning team with more than 2 participants - can you guys talk amongst yourselves and determine which two people want Crypt of the NecroDancer the most?

ItsTheAshtray made a blog post about the true story behind What Happened to Dad? and it's worth a read. He also has a request for some PHP help in there.

Next up will be Robot Day winners!

Ongoing Game Dev Event!

If any of this has made you amped to make a game, check out The Power of Four, where you form a team of four and make a game with a theme of four. The deadline is October 14th so you have plenty of time!

Upcoming Jams

I would also like to get back on a more consistent schedule with game and movie jams, like we had planned years ago but never stuck to. Next up could be a movie jam. It could be as early as this Friday (July 25th) if enough people are interested. Let me know if you would rather do July 25th or August 15th! If we do a movie jam on July 25th, we could consider another game jam as early as August 15th.

Also if you have a game on Steam and would like to contribute Steam keys as prizes for future events, you can simply PM me with a list of 10 Steam Keys and a link to your game so I can plug it! I'll try to make a point of plugging before each jam, at the launch of each jam, then at the end when results are announced.

Depends on how well it works in peoples' schedules... A lot of times it's easier for me to know if I'm available this coming weekend vs a few weekends from now, since people get impromptu invites to stuff throughout the summer. If enough animators express interest, we'll do it!

August 15th is Clock Day, if that makes any difference.

I feel like I'm one of very few that still love Clock Day.

Besides actual clockcrew members of course.

Are you planning on doing a jam per month (alternating movie/game)?

75% of ng weekend jams occur when I'm flying to or from uni.

I'd like to do that - we had an alternating schedule planned a few years back and never followed through, so this time around I'm hoping to be more consistent.

Yes, please movie jam. Voice actors rarely, if ever, get a chance to participate in game jams because most of the time people have no clue how to use us. At least with a movie jam, we have a chance of being recognized and used.

... So Clock Day would be bumped with another Game Jam? Why can't you do a double movie and game jam?

Clock Day would be that Friday so most Clock Day entries should already have wrapped up. The Jam starts Friday night and runs through the weekend so it shouldn't really interfere with Clock Day.

But would people on Friday night would still submit Clock Day submissions?

Yeah, the movie jam entries wouldn't be getting uploaded until Sunday night so Clock Day still has the floor all day Friday.
