That handicap looks like it'll be hard to stick to... Probably just ignore it like I did the last one :P

As shown at the bottom of my signature, I want to team up with someone. Seriously, why doesn't anyone want to team up? I've asked for like 3 jams in a row and I've never gotten a partner.

 

Also, I'll give a prize: I'll post about whoever wins and say nice things to them.

 

I'll team up with you. I liked your entry last jam. My worst skill in game development is graphics, so would you mind doing the graphics?

Okay -- now I'm teetering on a fence, here.  I may be offering to team up with someone for whatever.  (The value of what I have to offer is up for debate.  lol)  I'm a cartoonist and musician, and can do some programming.  I'll be considering takers.   :)
 
PM me if interested. I've PM'ed a few people, and if one of them accepts, I'll take it. Otherwise, I'll weigh my options and decide on Tuesday.

 

HAHA!  That didn't take long.  Nevermind, I got a reply.  Happy coding!

Not sure I can join in this Jam, as I have finals the week after and need the time to study. But I'll consider it, depending on what the theme will be.

Good luck to all who participate. :)

Time to make a sequel to NAJG. I'm satisfied with my sucess last time, but I think I can do better. I think I will try to make graphics even worse, maybe with some included sounds, and glitches. Oh, yeah, the glitches. What is a joke game without glitches? But I need to make it realistic, so they look like they are mde on accident. A bit of slowdown occasionally, stucking in a wall. I'm brainstorming ideas.

 

 

This time I will suceed! I will be the last! Bring it on, joke entrants!

The game must AFFECT the COMMUNITY 

The game must CHANGE the COMMUNITY 

The game must REWARD the COMMUNITY 

The game must IGNORE the COMMUNITY 

 

Definitely think 6th word is "community"

I think I will be able to join this jam :)
My guesses at the theme:
REVERSE
DEFLATE
FEEDING
GROWING
CLIMATE
LAYERED
MOMENTS
UNORDER
 
I don't think the three-letter word of the handicap necessarily is 'the'.
 
The game must always use humanoids. (I would hate that :P)
No idea what the rest could be.

My best so far..
THEME: ANIMALS

HANDICAP: The game must EVOLVE   AND   _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (_ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _) AND THE   _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _   ANIMALS

Why should the theme be about animals?Because "That Doggone Cat" won the previous jam and it was about animals right?So,I'm guessing this theme should be about animals..

Hey, kinda unrelated but I wanted to try making one of these,

I made an idea creator tool that might come in handy for the jam :D

LINK (It is made in html5 so you don't have to download it :D)

 

EDIT: I will update it from time to time with broader combos :D

I really don't think making a purposefully bad & glitchy game is in the spirit of the jam.

Why not?

Here's a test to see if something is in the spirit of the Jam:

Is it literally submittable? (If the Jammer submitted it, would it be taken down by Nocturne for being a prank game/virus/break a different rule?) If so: It's in the spirit of the Jam.
EDIT: Secondary test: Was it made within the time limit?

Beam Analysis Report

Test a 555 Timer Circuit and Counter System + Report

Write a Ethics in the Professional Working Environment essay

Design a Sub-sea casing to the "client" specifications

Then there's the exams in May which I should probably study for.

EDIT: I will update it from time to time with broader combos :D

The contrast with the background makes things hard to read and the button is a little ugly, honestly. I'd have done it in just Javascript with some plain web-sitey text. There's something out there on the internet that already does it, too.

My guess is that the theme is FREEDOM. Does the theme have exactly one E, or at least one E in it?

 

 

Handicap:

 

The game must ALWAYS use TUTORIALS (LEARN through DOING) and one INTRO STAGE for ELEMENTS.
