Don't worry, he'll be entering and it'll be the best Dadio game ever. I know where he lives... :thumbsup:

You better make sure he has at LEAST an hour to make his game in... so hide his Wispas until he's finished.

"Islamic robe smoke"

that might create some offensive/prejudice games if thats the theme.

I'd say its time to add a letter to the first work so that we know its not Islamic :P

I'm offering a prize!

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd winners will appear in my next jam game. Most likely as Easter Eggs, but possibly as main character. (I'll PM the winners after they've been announced to see what they'd want to look like in a game. If they don't answer, I'll be forced to get creative.)


That might not be possible considering the theme or handicap of the next jam could prevent that :/ I guess you could just not do the theme or handicap in those cases I guess.

Handicap guess (at least the first 3 words):

Must not include ------ --- ---------

I have no idea on the next words, and neither am I going to attempt to guess them.

But the third word has an "o" in it, so my guess is "must not contain." And the fifth word is either "for", "ton", "not", "fox", "rot", "log", or "lot" (most likely "for")

So,
"must not contain ______ for _________"

I think additional "o"s are unlikely. the theme is definitely string spot by string spot (one hint was an o, another hint was another o), but in the handicap it looks like nocturne put all the "o"s up.

Hmm... I think i have an idea what might the theme be...

For me, I think Nocturne is indicating where all, one letter kind, are positioned in the words so that means whatever remains in the blanks arent any that is already mentioned. Now this theme should be mentioned in something game logical and haves a sense in a title kind of way as well. To me it seems pretty hard to guess it if they are only two letter types mentioned. So with this, my guess, for now, would be:

Physics Gone Wrong ?

It's a nice thought but I don't think we're allowed to give money as a prize. I'm not sure though...

Are we getting any more letters soon? ;)

You have? Why didn't I notice? I honestly don't remember seeing that and if I had I'd have told you that it's not permitted...

So, no, you can't give out money. If it has happened before it was an oversight on my part, sorry. So, no offers of money for prizes, okay?

OK, then it must be "weather gone wrong".

Either way, I've decided to start early... in order to get a jump on you guys. So I've created a directory called "January 2013 Jam".

That puts me in the lead.

I think the theme *something* gone wrong is likely... Science gone wrong? and for the handicap, must not contain people for opponents would fit well with the theme. Also, do people want me to do a big movie poster thingy with references to all the games again?
Edit: perhaps replace "people" with "humans"

Also, "humans" doesn't fit.

Somebody really ought to do a gameplay compilation video of every game, like TheSnidr did in Jam#5.

I would, but my computer drops to like 10 fps whenever I try to use screen recording software.

I might be willing depending on how much time I have.

Must not [...] is an odd handicap. It's easy to leave out, it's hard to include in.

By definition, a handicap is a restriction. So 'must not' seems much more appropriate than 'must have', or at least to me it does. I would much prefer a restriction because this is a jam with a limited time frame and including something extra (eg. a cutscene) eats away at that time, whereas a restriction could potentially give you more time in the case that it stops you from designing an aspect of the game that you normally would. At the least, it won't take away any time.

See the first Jam with a handicap. Include an achievement separate from the main game. It's not a pain to include, but as opposed to a handicap that is just to..not do some obscure thing, it actually had an impact on most games.
