DEEDLE BOP!!! SQUEEDLE BOP!!! It's that time again people! :ninja: Time for... The Pantserrific GMC Jam #19! Still going strong after all these years! 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 18th of July through Monday 20th 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... :bunny:
 
 
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 18th July (but hype usually starts up on Friday before midnight when the theme is announced) and the contest is 72 hours long from 00:00 UK time (GMT+1) Saturday 18th to 23:59 UK time (GMT+1) Monday 20th
 
 
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.

HYPE OBJECT

  • The hype object is revealed when the Jam topic is opened and entrants are encouraged to create funny pics around it to hype the Jam up.

  • The hype object can *optionally* be included in some way in your Jam entry.

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 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.

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)

  • 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. 

PRIZES

GMC PRIZES

  • 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 hype object 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!
 
 
COMMUNITY PRIZE LIST
 
These are prizes kindly and very generously offered to us by GMC members. Donate your time/experience/whatever to this community endeavour! If you wish to add a community prize (game reviews, advertising etc...) please send a PM to me and I will add it to this post.

Holy fleeping floop... here we go again.....
And this time, I can finally make a game about anime girls in panties, and it will be appropriate for the theme!  :lol:

 

Well, I am a student of classical composition, in a very high education. I can work with VST programs. Sooo, I am offering the... uh.... 4th place (because they/she/he doesn't get anything) an epic theme song, in any style that person wants, for anything that/those person(s) want(s)! It can be 8-bit, it can be horror, orchestra (I am the best in that), and sad or happy, or wathever they/she/he feel(s) like, and is not impossible for me.

 

Good luck to everyone! And make sure there are enough panty girls in your games!!!!

 

(I will be posting my music portofolio soon enough on youtube, that is already for some time one of my biggest vacation plans)

I may have been on the tail end of the rankings all three times in the past but that won't stop me this time from finishing my game and marrying my imaginative art and newly gained programming skills to make something special.

I'm really glad the hype object sorta replaced the secret word.

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.

Handicap: Your game must contain no ...

Alright, while someone is still reading this, you guys that were at place 11 in the last jam, Snail_Man, TheUltimate  and ParodyKnaveBob, still haven't gotten your prize from me, Ibb&Obb steam gift. There's only 1 gift, and I already wrote to some of you guys to figure out who wants it the most, but Im getting no response. So im guessing none of you want it, so im going to give it to the 1st place this jam.

HYPE! :banana:  My sister's going to have a birthday part on Sunday, so I might have to sacrifice some time for cake-eating and socializing, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

I'm considering to team up with someone this jam. It was fun last time I did it (even though our game were a disaster). On the other hand, I kinda enjoy doing all aspects of a game myself. Hmm...

 

Also—are we still doing these?

Soooo, we've got a red row and a green row; the fact that they're differently coloured *probably* means something, but I doubt actual colours matter, considering earlier second row was eye-hurtingly blue. Also, the middle word in the green row has 4 letters, as opposed to all the others. Can't really make anything else from that... ^^"

CLOWNSSS

or

PANTIESS

I just found out that I will be getting back from vacation about 12 hours into the start of the jam so I've lost some hope that I will be able to finish my jam game this time. I will still participate but I won't be trying to get first place anymore.  :(

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.

So, I'm pretty satisfied with the last jam, given the amount of time I had.

I feel that many people missed the point of my entry, though. People have said it's a failed attempt at a joke game and that it shouldn't be that bad. That joke games should in fact be fun to play. And I agree. Joke games can be silly and they can be fun and that's generally the point.

My series of games, however, are not joke games, as can be guessed from their titles. I take them very seriously, and the attempt is to make something absolutely horrendous while still not being completely unplayable or too simple. I feel I've been doing fairly well - with each sequel, the quality has decreased. The amount of bugs, types of lags and all other horrible stuff has been increasing, and there was always at least some content.

I had, however, limited time in pretty much all the jams I've participated in, especially the last one. The last jam was especially bad, yet the game was still the worst so far.


I was, however, still far from all the things I had in mind and all the problems I'd planned. There is so much potential, there is so much that can be done.


This jam, I will likely, though not certainly, have a ton of free time. I could create an abomination so horrendous, so terrifyingly bad that it would trump all my previous entries, and maybe even some of the worst games in general. So many problems of various kinds, from horrible colour palettes to complex lag systems and loads of bugs. It would be a masterpiece.




But I also don't feel like it. You see, creating something good takes a lot of effort. Creating something bad generally takes much less effort... Until you start going too far. Then, decreasing the quality slowly increases the time and effort required for it, so the worse it gets, the harder it is.

And, generally, I wouldn't mind that. It takes effort, and I'd be usually be willing to put in that effort to make something terrible. The achievement of making something terrible can feel equally satisfying as making something good.


But I don't feel like it. I'll probably miss a big opportunity to make something bad, which is unfortunate.


But I want to do something different for a change, because doing the same thing too much stops it from being enjoyable. And I don't want making bad games to be a negative experience to me, and I want to enjoy this jam.




So, I might try to actually try to make something at least somewhat good. It's a scary thought. Me, making something decent for a change? I feel unclean just from considering it, yet I also feel the horrible temptation. I may have created some of the worst games the jam has ever seen, but I am still a penguin human. I guess I'll have to accept the fact that humans aren't perfect and that I can't always do the right thing.

So perhaps, if I feel like it, I will attempt to create something that is not absolutely abhorrent, even though just the thought of it scares me.

I'm on my tablet now, so somebody else (Alice) is going to have to work on these first clues. I'll be home tonight if nobody else (Alice) has gotten to them.

Underwear? So the only thing game developers wear at home? (or work if you work at YoYo)

Soooo, we've got a red row and a green row; the fact that they're differently coloured *probably* means something, but I doubt actual colours matter, considering earlier second row was eye-hurtingly blue. Also, the middle word in the green row has 4 letters, as opposed to all the others. Can't really make anything else from that... ^^"

Last word of the first red line has 4 characters, too.

 

Also where is clue #1, I can't find it...

Oh - the jam is upon us once again.  This time number 19.  With underwear.  "Under where?"  *giggle giggle*

So, do I team up with Jack again, or go it alone this time?  Or team with someone new?  Hmmm...  decisions, decisions.  Well, if I team up, it'll be with Jack, unless he's sick of my incessant suggestions by now in which case I'd look for a new teammate.  However, I got me a hankerin' to go solo this time.  I'd kinda like to make a political or social statement, but kinda scared of that, too.  lol

Well - two and a half weeks to decide.  Until then, anyone up for some more "HayMan Jam Series" Memes?  :D

Here's a double post for Yal.  Awww, Lukan.  You messed up my double post.  :P

 

And where's the new Hype Train?  

 

And I saw Nocturne make a post, but he failed to confuse us about the dates and times.  What's happening around here???

Woah, another one already? Man, it feels like just a couple weeks ago I was making my game for the last jam...

I am definitely in, it's summer here and I've been in the programming mood the last couple weeks! Let's hope the flame doesn't die out, because I really want to make a good, complete game for once.

Well, maybe I should be more realistic.

 

I want to make a complete game for once. That is all :)
