I wish I had heard about this sooner, might have gotten ahead of my work for this weekend. Haven't attempted to participate in a GMC Jam in years, might make it to the end of this one just for fun :P.

 

Quick question does the Cold War theme have to be literal? or can it be it encompass any interpretation?

 

BTW I dig the handicap, haven't done something like that for a game in years XD

The theme is always open to interpretation. Just beware of being too vague or cryptic or "out there" as some might not "get it".

I'm making an actual war-themed comedy game. So if it sounds depressing and funny at the same time, it should be.

I was unable to come up with a cold war theme. So I'm going to make another game I had in mind so I don't have to fuss over making a game I don't want to make. Handicap may or may not be used.

"Cold War"... I can think of three possible interpretations of that.

  • A game about the cold war.
  • A game about another, similar cold war.
  • A game that is literally about cold war. Like, war that is cold. Icy. Not hot.

 

And this handicap is totally hilarious! Can't wait to play the games and listen to all sound effects :P Lucky that I bought a webcam/mic not so long ago.

Devlog 1: Terrain
Even before the jam started I decided to make a 3D game as I've never done a finished 3D game before. So I took a look at GM's built-in 3D functionality and was not particularly impressed. So instead I'm using my own, probably even worse C++ OpenGL engine that I'm compiling as a DLL and interfacing through Game Maker (like GMOgre or similar). If I was sane I'd probably use an established engine like Ultimate3D or something for a 72 hour rapid development competition but I'm not sane. So we'll see how much I shoot myself in the foot.

 

Z1yAGt8.jpg

My engine already has support for heightmaps and blend maps. The problem is of course that I don't have any decent editor so creating the height and blend maps is another ordeal entirely. So in order to make the heightmap I simply generated one in Terragen. Ignore the blend map as it's just randomly painted on with no concern for the actual terrain mesh. Textures from CGTextures.

That art's really good. You made it?

 

I'm not jamming, as usual, but here's the idea I had (feel free to cannibalise it).

 

A War Against Cold

You play as a lab assistant alone in a futuristic Antarctic research station after all the other scientists have gone to a party or something. A cold night is coming in and all the heating equipment is borked, leaving a tiny amount of power left with which to heat the station. But! If the lab equipment, scattered around the large facility, gets too cold, it'll break. So you have to run around the station (maybe a platformer?) switching on and off heaters, trying to conserve power while keeping all the equipment from freezing up and breaking.

 

Also you have a sassy robot sidekick. And all the music is 80s electronica. But now I'm just spitballing.

No, I decided on a "platform shooter" except you can't shoot. You fight and survive by freezing portions of the screen. There will ideally be a lot of creative things you can do with this.

It could be 20% of the alphabet, so 26 * 0.2 = 5.2 rounded down is 5 = 'E'.  Or 5 = 5th letter in the theme.  But I think I'm way off.   :P
 
Anyway, this might be my last pic.  Been saving this one...
 
#34 - HayMan Jam Series

Thank you, and goodnight.   :)

 
ALL BOW DOWN TO HAYMAN, MASTER OF THE JAM HYPE
 

Theme: COLD WAR
Handicap: all sound in your game must be made using your own mouth.
Secret Word: T--E

 
It was AUDIO, Darrell, AUDIO. I know it's not a huge difference but it sounded slightly more classy :D Therefore I edited the posts to say the right thing \o/
 

Here is the problem. I DO NOT HAVE A MIC. THIS IS UNFAIR.
 
It's an unfair restriction. Quality will depend entirely on how good everyone's equipment is, or if they have equipment at all, rather than fair game design, optional or not.
 
This is ridiculous. I quit.

 
 
This was an issue I faced when choosing the handicap... I figured some people may not have the hardware - however it does encourage working in a team - as I'm sure there are some show-offs around here who wouldn't mind making sounds for you ;)
 
Failing that you could do what someone else said and search for sound effects online that sound like mouth sounds. I won't mark ya down for it, and I would hope everyone else is going to be lenient too.
 
Anyways, glad you changed your mind and put yourself back in the running :)
 
 

Quick question, whistling counts?

 
Yep, any mouth sounds.
