BO BO BO - BOM!!! It's that time again people! Time for... The Potatotastic GMC Jam #18! Hard to believe that our wee little Jam has finally turned 18! Woohoo! It's time to finely craft your 72 hour masterpieces & wow the people of the world to such a degree that their brains explode in a sparkling shower of luminous green Jam! This fine event will run from Saturday 25th of April through Monday 27th for a grand total of 72 hours! CAN YOUUU DIIIIIG IIIIIIIT?
For you newcomers out there, here's some handy info to get you on your way to joining in & becoming a GMC superstar...
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 a set 72 hour time period.
WHAT ISN'T IT?
The Jam is not an official YoYo Games Ltd competition, it is run by the community for the community.
WHEN IS IT?
Competition officially Starts Saturday 25th April (but hype usually starts up on Friday before midnight when the theme is announced) and the contest is 72 hours long from 00:00 GMT Saturday 25th to 23:59 GMT Monday 27th
THEME & HANDICAP
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.
The secret word is only partially revealed when the Jam starts and entrants must guess what the word is and put something to do with that word into their game.
The secret word is not revealed until the jam is finished.
There is a voting category for best use of secret word, but other than that this restriction is for fun and should not be taken into account when ranking a game's overall performance.
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 rank all games, ultimately choosing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as new special categories: Best use of restrictions, Best Presentation, Best Devlog and Best use of secret word.
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.
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.
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)
The deadline for entries is now more solid. It is known well in advance by everyone who reads the topic and some people were getting away with a little too much last time. From now on, no entries from the next day will be accepted.
Top three places - All get bragging rights (obviously), a banner, and entry into the hall of fame topic.
1st Place - Gets to choose the next theme, as long as their game fit the theme this time around
2nd Place - Gets to choose the next handicap, as long as their game used the handicap this time around
3rd Place - Gets to choose the secret word for the next jam
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!
