 I'm in! I didn't enter anything in the last couple of jams, but that will change this time, hopefully. Also, I really want something to motivate me to finish a game. The GMC Jams are great for that.

More people! Oh boy! Not gonna lie -- this has me pretty stoked right now. Some time we should get the guessing game going again. The handicap yet eludes me, so it'd be fun to guess at it. Everyone enjoys that. Right? Sure would be welcome over here! :P

New faces in the Jam topic! :) Welcome! We all hope you participate and have fun, and remember, this is more about experimentation and prototyping than it is about winning.

 

And to those that say they can't enter... :( Take Dadio (please!) as an example and marvel at the crap he makes for the Jam in just two hours! I'm absolutely CERTAIN that any one of you could do better in the same amount of time so please give it a go! You never know, that wee game could park a big idea for the future.

 

Also, while I'm here, the Theme and the Handicap are up for the guessing:

 

 

THEME: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ S

 

HANDICAP: _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ o / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / o _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _

 

 

Now, I'm just going to say one thing here: DON'T PLAN YOUR GAME UNTIL YOU SEE THESE!!!! If you really want to participate and use BOTH the theme and the handicap, then wait for the reveal because the handicap in particular is a real surprise and will (hopefully!) give rise to some very interesting gameplay, especially when coupled with the excellent theme...

 

You have been warned!!!

Not sure about the second part, but a handicap disallowing violence would be very difficult for most of us. Nearly every game on the planet involves shooting, crashing, fighting, falling, dying, etc.

It sure would be challenge making a such game, but it's definitively possible. It's not impossible that's part of the handicap.

Theme is either potatoes or tomatoes.  Fighters or lighters?   I don't know, but I'm leaning towards potatoes.

 

Edit:  Forget potatoes, it's definately tomatoes.

There are loads of games without a hint of violence. Of course there are much more that are violent.

I think no violence would be a fantastic handicap! It's not too hard to follow, but it'd also restrict many types of games.

Guess it's time to knock off Sleep Shooter. That did pretty well.

@NAL, the last two words might be something more like "any pain", or any something four-lettered. Based on Nocturne's delivery, it seems to fit.

(suddenly I'm not sure if I like this guessing game any more)

Depending on your interpretation of being able to use pre-made resources for the game, you could pretty much have the whole game prepared, just not assembled. A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few days conceptualizing different art styles that could be illustrated quickly and still look decent, for example, although no game assets were made.

Meh, I think that If I'll prepare at all it will at most be raw engines with no gameplay or functions besides the core that makes that game engine work: that way I won't spend 5 hours on an engine and can jump into making the game right away.

Hmm, I wonder what qualifies as bad "guys" if that is indeed the handicap.  Kinda ambiguous, like humanoid.

No we're just going to remain silent as nocturne reveals more letters.

Do you guys think it would be better if me and my teammate went and did our engines and stuff before the jam? We're doing both Theme and Handicap, so I don't know if that would work.

Also, should my partner and I do a little of the design as well?

Okay, logical deduction time.

 

The first word of the handicap is most likely "must"

The second word is probably something like "contain" or "include."

The third word is "no" or "do" or "go"

The fourth word is ambigious

The fifth word is "or" or "on"

The sixth word is ambigious

The seventh word is ambigious

 

Must include no homestar or the cheat.

 

What a sad handicap..... I'll have to make it about strong bad, for sure.

 

on another note... the theme is probably tomatoes, and the handicap is probably must contain no planties or the plant. So, you know, a theme about plants where you can't include plants.

What about a hangman game? If you wrong guessed the letter in the handicap or theme, you'll lost a live. If you lost 3 lives, you're disquallified from the jam before it even started.

Well I'm going to bet the handicap is no villains or bad guys since people were talking about it after the last jam.  Nocturne said they fit will, so I don't think it's tomatoes.  But really, there's over 9000 possibilities according to hangman solver, I wouldn't bother guessing the teme until we get another letter :P

Here's a hint from what i get from Lune's status, it's not tomatoes, neither radishes (or is it)? So I think it's definetly not about a veggies or fruits.
