Ahhh... Summer! Time for holidays, ice cream, people with less clothes than normal and.... Great GMCJam #11!!! Yes, the time is upon us once more when we spend our sweaty holiday hours slaving over the keyboard to create a 72hour masterpiece and win the approval (or not!) of our peers. This time around the Jam will run from Saturday 27th of July through Monday 29th and will be 72 hours dedicated purely to game development. Are you ready?
 
For those of you that aren't initiated in the ways of the Jam, please read on...

WHAT IS IT?

The Jam is a community event that we organise to encourage people to experiment with GM and make something that will be interesting or entertaining within the limited timescale of 72 hours.
 

WHEN IS IT?

  • Competition officially Starts Saturday 27th July (but hype usually starts up on Friday before midnight when the theme is announced)
  • 72 hours long from 00:00 GMT Saturday 27th ...to... 23:59 GMT Monday 29th

THEME

  • Each jam has a theme, and participants are very much encouraged to use it
  • This jam has a handicap too and you are also encouraged to use it
  • Using the theme is NOT obligatory, nor is using the handicap, but using either will be valued when voting and using BOTH gets extra Kudos!
  • To encourage use of theme, the highest-voted theme-based game gets to choose the theme for next Jam.
  • The theme will not be revealed until just before the start of the Jam to prevent any advantages.

VOTING

  • All games are eligible (themed and non-themed and with or without handicap), but voters should take "use of theme" into account. Remember: non-theme games can win, but they CANNOT pick the next Jam's theme (see above).
  • Voters choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as three special votes to "Best use of theme", "Best Presentation", and the "Best Devblog".
  • It is OBLIGATORY that when voting you leave feedback about WHY you voted for the game(s) you chose, even if it's only a few lines to say you loved the game idea or whatever. Failure to do so may result in your votes being removed.
  • It is NOT obligatory to play nor review all the games! Honestly, when dealing with so many games, it is a difficult and sometimes daunting task to play through all of them and then vote. So don't do it! Play as many as you feel comfortable with and then vote for which of those that you liked, leaving comments and feedback where possible. Don't worry, the SSE voting system that we use will compensate. If everyone does this then all games WILL get played, and have feedback, which is what this is all about, and I'd prefer to see 5 quality reviews accompanied by five votes to 60 votes and no reviews.
  • In order to encourage friendly community spirit, we ask that members not vote for their own game and please refrain from asking friends/family to do so if they are not part of this community. This has happened before and if you are found out your game may be removed from the Jam.
  • Any form of cheating will result in the instant removal of your game from the jam and being blacklisted for all further community events.

PARTICIPATING

  • All games must be original creations specifically for the Jam, but you may use whatever resources you wish to complete the game: EG. dll, scripts, sprites and sounds etc etc etc...
  • You may submit as many games as you wish, but only the highest rated game in the final vote will be eligible for winning any prizes.
  • Games must be posted in the Official Games Topic before the finish deadline for the Jam, and posting a topic in the Games (or WIP) forum here at the GMC is recommended if you want feedback and opinions as the Games Topic is ONLY FOR POSTING GAMES. Hosting is up to the individual user. You may also include and update a development log in your official games topic post.
  • The Official Games Topic must contain a link to your game and a short description.
  • HTML5 Games are permitted, BUT MUST HAVE DIRECT LINK TO DOWNLOADABLE .EXE VERSION posted in the Official Games Topic.
  • People are welcome to use any outside sites, and are also welcome to promote such sites, but the posting of topics and the voting will be done on the GMC.
  • Teams are encouraged and can be organised by you with whomever you wish or you can participate in a random team (see below for more details)

GMC PRIZES

  • The Community Prize will be as before... A special graphic/banner, bragging rights and (if your game is a themed game) the possibility of choosing the next jam theme.
  • Prizes will also be offered as members of the community contribute whatever the feel appropriate. EG: Coverage on their web site, custom graphics for the game, a video of the gameplay for YouTube...anything!

 
COMMUNITY PRIZE LIST

These are prizes kindly and very generously offered to us by GMC members. Donate your time/experience/whatever to this community endeavor! If you wish to add a community prize (game reviews, advertising etc...) please send a PM to NAL or Dangerous_Dave and they will add it to this post.

Bleh I'm working both Saturday and Sunday this time around so that's at least 17 hours or waking time I won't be able to do anything. Will probably end up doing a 4-12 hour project again.

Sadly, no. The last one wasn't that good and the lag wasn't very realistic, and I was planning to change that. I already know how it would work if I could get to it. And I had many new planned features and glitches. But, it isn't going to happen.

EDIT: I was pretty excited about upgrading the lag system. :S

EDIT 2: Now that I'm out, I have some pretty high expectations, Dadio. Also, Newkill, you better make Star Bomb Rock Bird 3!

I got time off work and told all my friends I'm busy, so GMC Jam #11 here we come!

(why aren't spaces for theme/handicap guessing up yet?)

edit: also, I'm doing fan-art for the top five games and also that which gets voted best use of theme.

Woohoo! The actual Jam 11 topic is upon us! I'm with Alex-- my participation will be slight at best. I have to work Friday, Saturday, and Monday. (Jam starts Friday evening in my time zone.) Plus, I'm working 13-hour days. I'll pretty much only have Sunday to make something, so it will have to be really simple. I may have to borrow an engine somewhere and create something from it. (Any suggestions?)

I haven't been good at following through on prizes, so I don't think ill be offering any this time.

Good luck to everyone! Let's do this thing! :)

Edit: I'm entertaining the idea of teaming up with someone. Can't offer much, but maybe moral support or possibly devlog entries, just because of lack of time for actual coding.

Oh joy it's finally coming! I really want to test my skills this time around and push myself. Especially when it comes to polish and graphics. In fact, I've spent a great deal of time looking at other games and asking "what makes this game 'polished'?" Looking forward to this thing!

If you need good practice there is nothing like making a game in under 3 days. Good luck. :D

:thumbsup:  If I am practicing I might as well do everything myself, or shall I team up with someone/team? i wouldn't think anyone would enjoy my GML skills, I'd be holding them back.

Most people work by themselves. TheSnidr and Lolligirl are more of an exception than not.

Am I encouraged to participate? I picked up GM 2 nights ago, so I guess it could be good practice. Can't wait to see what others make

If you need good practice there is nothing like making a game in under 3 days. Good luck. :D

 

:thumbsup:  If I am practicing I might as well do everything myself, or shall I team up with someone/team? i wouldn't think anyone would enjoy my GML skills, I'd be holding them back. 

 

to be honest there haven't been many teams in the former jams, usually maybe only 1 or 2 against the 50+ entries made by a single contestant, like Lune said, lollgirl and TheSnidr are usually the only team since they are so close friends outside the GMC. So you might have some difficulty finding a teammate; even if you weren't new.

Just go and have fun, don't take this too seriously, most of us are just doing this because it is extremely entertaining to push yourself and see what others can come up with. :D

Make sure to try and finish early, though ;)  As a newbie, be prepared for massive bugs if you need to pump out a game over the weekend :)

Last time on The Jam...

 

I have noticed that basically everyone who didn't play all the games didn't play my game, so maybe that's what happened. I wouldn't know. I'm pretty sure my platformers are always the hardest game in any individual Jam. 

I played and voted for MOtG's game. The randomiser works!

I will draw a random doodle in MS Paint for the winner.

 

I will also hopefully enter this time if my schedule is clear(and it should be!)

all right, since you'll be drawing I'll do the writing this time. :D

I'll write a poem about the following games:

  • The one that I give my 1st place vote
  • The one that actually wins the Jam.
  • The game that lands a single spot above my game (If there are multiple games in that spot I'll go with the one that scored higher in my opinion)

That should be fun. :)

Thanks to the Steam Summer Sale I have a good few gifts to give! This time I want to be oddly specific about who gets 'em, so the following will be given out.

 

The highest-placing game that is not a platformer will receive Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year edition.

 

The 15th place winner (in the event of a tie, prize raises to the nearest unique place) wins Scribblenauts Unlimited.

 

The median winner wins Serious Sam Classic: The First & Second Encounter and Serious Sam 3: BFE.

 

The overall best reviewer wins Cart Life.

 

The Best Use of Theme and Best Use of Handicap each win Serious Sam HD: The First and Second Encounter.

 

The Best Devlog winner wins Garry's Mod.

 

I will contact winners regarding prizes after the release of the results, you may decline your prize, and if not redeemed by the next Jam I reserve the right to re-gift them. :)

Looks like a whole lotta people are gonna be busy & are gonna miss this Jam - which is sad to hear.

@ All those people: even if you just get a few hours in, you should enter something! I rarely put anything close to 72 hours in more like around 5 or so... so I dunno, just keep things small, simple & tight & it's still do-able in only a few hours. :thumbsup:

Hoping to see a big turnout with lotsa new faces! :yes:

I might be doing the jam for the first time ever....given I don´t have school afterwards. I will probably be looking for a team, as well.

Man, I'm working all of those nights, so it would leave me with very few, like maybe 15 total hours to actually dev. :(

 

Not sure if I can enter this one.

I'll try something then :) But it probably won't be a winning entry.

I will be joining once again. I will try to make my next jam game meet the quality of my previous one (Distant Mind).
