Alright, just to slightly put a fast forward on this and clear out anything unsolved, clues!

GC'EM is the only Pokémon-related one, honest! (Also, that grid that Alice posted has the wrong letter from Omanyte filled in.)

Link Panther: you're looking for the start of one thing and the end of another.

Cryptic: here are some specific clues, EVEN THOUGH IT'S ALL CLEVER LIKE
1. But H saw... backwards...
2. Mixing... "canmust"...
3. Atrocity - eyesore. Perception - eyeshot. Bullet wound - shot.
4. Solved!
5. What sort of film might cowboys be in that suggests something to the left?
6. Jim is the son of his dad. What popular brands of whisky are named Jim ____?
7. Google "Zoe Coronation Street 1997". Link it to torn clothing.
8. Solved!

Oh, and one last clue - these puzzles will lead to five theme possibilities that can be fully ascertained a good few days before the jam; the last few clues will then be narrowing down.

Ah, yes, good thing Merc copied the rainbow table with the correct letter. ^^

So, given the clues so far...
1. WASHTUB
2. SANCTUM (yay, anagram solvers~!)
3. EYELESS (sadly, EYELAZERS won't fit here; Nicolas Cage wouldn't approve)
4. NEMESIS

5. WESTERN
6. SUNBEAM (mainly because of the ray thing, don't know much about whiskey)
7. TATTERS
8. BEMUSES

With that comes an update (thanks again, Merc ^^):
     D: S 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
R   #8: S - - C - - - - - W E
Y   #-: - - - - N - - - D U -
G   #-: - - T E - - E - - - N
B  #11: - P - - H - R _ - - -
P #138: T Y _ - S - _ - - - -
I hope I got the letters right this time. :whistling:

(still can't quite figure out the link panther, though)

Hm... does it bother anyone else that red diamond 8 was a little too easy? I mean, we practically had to solve whole puzzles just to get 11 and 138, but 8 was literally given to us.

It's far more entertaining for me to watch you guys try to figure out this puzzle rather than trying to solve it myself.

I got completely lost after the third puzzle.

Aaalright, some theme guesses to get the ball rolling.

SORCERER
SUICIDAL
SUCCUBUS
SPY HER PARTY
USE HEAD

On a side note, I like the fact there will be multiple themes. It may end up in funny combinations. Too bad I'll be terribly, terribly busy for the most of following days...

"SORCERER" seems like the only theme out of any of those that would be used.

 

Using something like "USE HEAD" would probably make people mad.

"SPY HER PARTY" is just creepy.

And "SUICIDAL"? I don't think I need to explain that one

Two and a half years of game development taught me the joy of making something unique and unconventional. It is not good enough to make a game fun when there are way too many other freeware games that make fun their selling point.

Quick question, why is the Jam being held at the second last weekend of the month instead of the last? January ends on a weekend (31st is a Saturday) so wouldn't it make more traditional sense to hold it from Jan 31st to Feb 2nd?

Maybe it needs to be completely contained in January?

I don't know why that would be. From what I remember (and have now verified by checking the topics), Jam #2, #3 and #4 all had dates that started on an ending Saturday and carried over to the following calendar month.

 

*cough cough cough*

Jam #2 had a date starting on an ending Saturday (April 30th) that carried on to the next calender month, Jam #3 carried over it's third day to the next calender month (July 30th) and Jam #3 was just very close to the end of the calender month (October 29th). Either way, the 24th seems strangely early for an end of quarter jam.

I am outraged good sir, a glove to your face and pistols at dawn.

Well maybe not outraged, maybe mildly curious as to why it's being hosted so early in the month. It's just slightly inconvenient to me to be reviewing games in at the end of Jan, when I've stacked my work load, instead of early Feb, when I've been keeping space to review the Jam games.

This will indeed be the earliest a Jam has ever been, but only by 1 day; the 13th Jam fell on the 25th of January last year.

Yeah, I've gotten most of my games done in around 48 hours so I could spend the rest of the time polishing.

 

Also the prize this time is that the highest ranking game not in the top six that uses the last letter from the first ranking game in its title gets a song of their choice from me (preferably not a love song).

Yay, more dancing!

Anyone feels like adding raspberry jam spilling or other additional items? ;)

Also, I hope I'll find *some* time for making the Jam game, though I can already tell it'll be very, very hectic time for me. If everything else fails, I might always make a game as complex as "Keep TheM Small".

I've also noticed that, over time, the jam has been creeping earlier into each month.
Jam #63: January 1-4, 2027


Jam 63 should, if I'm correct, be July 25th to 27th, 2026. Don't worry guys, gradually earlier creeping of the Jam isn't a thing. Ever since I've run the Jam I've always made it the last full weekend of a month... just so happens that this month is one of the earliest possible cases of that.
