Welcome to the official GMC Jam #19 Voting Topic!

 

2a7ubuv.jpg

 

This topic is where you can post your reviews and final votes in the GMCJam. The rules, as always, are listed below for those new members that are participating for the first time and we recommend that you read them before making any posts. For those veterans out there, skip the rules as nothing has changed since previous jams, and "START VOTING"!

DA JAM ZIP!

https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing


Voting Template
You don't have to use this, but it makes my life a lot easier if you do, so please consider adding the following template to your post, even if you wish to add mini-reviews and images for your chosen games.

 

----------

My votes go to

 

1st Place - name of the game - author
2nd Place - name of the game - author
3rd Place - name of the game - author
etc...

 

Best Use Of Theme - author

Best Use of Handicap - author

Best Use of Underwear - author

 

Best Presentation - author

Best Reviews - author
Best Devblog - author

----------

 

Voting Rules
You may vote for as many (or as few) games as you wish in order of preference, with 1 being the winner and all subsequent games being runners up, but please vote for at least three! The zip file that is created for the Jam comes with a game "randomiser" so that the order you play the games in does not depend on their title or creator, so we ask that you please use it!

Apart from the voting you are encouraged to post a mini-review of the winning game (and any others you feel deserve it) explaining what you liked/disliked and why you think it deserves to win... Remember, this is a Community Jam and so feedback from the community is all important! We want to know what you think! Apart from that there are a few more rules to stick to...

 

Voting will last approximately 21 days from Wednesday 22nd July to Wednesday 12th of August.

 

Please post your votes FIRST, before any other text or images, and preferably using the above template.
Only ONE post per person (this is flexible but you MUST PM me for permission first). Any further conversation about a given game can be held in the Jam topic or in the topic of the game itself (if it has one). Any posts breaking this rule will be removed.
Your top three games MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A SHORT REVIEW and posts with no reviews of at least the top three games will be considered at the time of counting.
If you are reviewing the games over the course of the 21 day voting period, use the button to add to your post, rather than post twice.Constructive criticism is fine, but comments like "This game sucks" will not be tolerated... so think before commenting! If your reviews are extensive or use images, please encase them in [spoiler] tags.
Please vote for at least YOUR TOP THREE GAMES, although you can vote for as many as you like (and every vote DOES count!).

NO talk of cheating in the Jam topics please. If anyone has any doubts about a post or a vote, then please REPORT the post or PM me with your thoughts and action will be taken accordingly.
For all votes, including the Best Ofs, be sure to include BOTH the game name AND the author name.
So that's it I think... Take your time to play as many games as possible, but don't feel pressured to play them all, and we shall see you all here again in 21 days time to see who has the honour of being the Jam winner this time around!

Good luck to everybody and thank you all so much for participating in this most pantserrific of occasions! :)

WARNING: The following post was likely written in a state of brainfry.

There it is, my brief and to the point feedback (specifically, the point between a tongue and a cheek). If you want more detailed feedback about your game, please send me a PM or something, especially if you plan to expand it in the future.

Also, remember, everyone is a winner!

1. ghandpivot - Charlie's Spiritual Adventure
+ Educational value, especially related to cloud computing
- That disgrace at the end, potentially offensive to moral guardians
(I've found the game to be quite charming for some reason; perhaps because it has somewhat cute story and is rather varied?)

2. metromaniac - Unconventional Weapon
+ Pantsthrower
- So, what happened to that father, anyway?
(quite a fun and varied entry in general, but the spikes were troubling :< )

3. Mercerenies - Rabbit Hole
+ Text adventure segment
- Platforming segment
(an original idea and execution, but gameplay was underwhelming at times, and visuals weren't quite exciting, either; also, have some horn)

And the rest:
Spoiler


Best ofs:
Use of theme, handicap & haipmotif: GameDevDan - Super Honeybees Cluster on Hornet
Presentation: Diptoman - Sushido
Use of physics: none (chance, y u didn't participate? ;-; )

I use a point based system where each game scores between 0 and 100. I'll also add some bullet points of stuff I thought about the games. These might seem a little harsh sometimes but keep in mind that I never think games are bad; they might just need a little more work. :P
 
The reviews are listed in alphabetical order (sorted by game name) and new entries are bolded. [43/43 all done!]

That's right. In the last 48 hours of the voting topic being open, I plan to personally review every game in this Jam. Let's play.

Here's how it's going to work. I'm rushing, so the reviews will be short. If you think I missed anything in your game, feel free to PM me and I'll try to get to it before the Jam ends. I have a very short rubric here, and on top of that there's not much to it. These are rushed, so I don't have time to sort the reviews. Use CTRL+F. I think even Internet Explorer supports that.
Spoiler


Remember that scores are not final and that the highest rated game will not necessarily be the top vote for me. The score tells how well rounded your game is. Your position on my voting list tells how much I enjoyed it. Finally, please remember that this is a 72 hour game jam. The fact that you competed means you're an excellent game designer. Don't let my reviews get you down if they're a bit harsh; you made a game and that's an accomplishment in itself.

  41. Red Sun: Sirham [4/15]

Voting system:

Voting is based on the score in my reviews (in the event of a tie, I will assign a rank based on my preference). There are three voting areas, each with a possible potential score:

Gameplay: 5 maximum, how I feel the game itself works

Graphics: 4 maximum, self explanatory

Audio: 3 maximum, includes sound and music

Polish: 2 maximum, reflects the presence of elements not (directly) related to gameplay, and also where bugs are punished

Potential: 1 maximum, basically where I give credit for a game (or prototype) that could go somewhere after the jam

 

I also give bonus points (or penalties) for the use of theme, handicap, and hype object. Using the handicap gives a +2 bonus, the hype object a +1 bonus. Failing to use the theme is a -2 penalty. (So while the score is out of fifteen, because of the bonuses, the true maximum score is 18.)

 

Reviews:

Due to text limitations, the reviews are now in a text document you can read here. I also started getting really annoyed with the long reviews I was giving, so I'm using a short review format. If you want a more detailed review, PM me.

Reviews:

 

Bee Ball Game - GameDevDan:

I really liked that this one tried to be educational & very Japan-specific. So top marks for use of Theme & Handicap. Visuals were pretty nice & the basic mechanic was good (but you could cheat by just spamming the arrow keys). Gameplay was *cough* not so exciting unfortunately. Also, there were no Underpants to be seen, but that's probably a good thing...   *actually* there was! Some of the bees are wearing official GMCJam19 Underpants! +1 Bonus point! Lol!

5/10

One Girl Two Cups - NAL and Nocturne:

First off, the problem with this one is that it has literally *nothing* to do with the Theme or Handicap & was clearly made for "that other Jam" *cough* - so minus 100 points for GMC betrayal. :lol: The game itself however is pretty damn cool. I really like the simple, clean concept & implementation. Controls feel nice, difficulty feels good, well presented, decent art, nice use of sounds. Basically, a rock solid game (just a shame you didn't crowbar some Japanese/Educational stuff in there on the Monday to fit better with the GMCJam). Oh well, nice work anyway!

6/10

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.

Voting Scheme

Games will be reviewed and given a score in each of the following categories: "Graphics", "Music" and "Gameplay". Each category starts at 0 and can be rated all the way up to 5 points.
To penalize not using the theme, 3 points will be deducted from the score, whereas not fitting the handicap deducts 1 point. Managing to include "Underwear" in the game will grant an additional point.
Games will be reviewed to the best of my abilities to remain unbiased except on ties, where personal opinion of the game (as in the one I enjoyed playing the most) will break the tie.
 
Note that I am as truthful as possible, it is not my intent to directly or indirectly insult anyone or their dedication/skill/etc. If you think I've been unfair with your review about a particular topic (for example, I said it didn't fit the handicap when I just failed to notice it) then PM me stating why exactly you think it was unfair and I'll review it again if possible. I am currently going through the randomized order but if you would like me to skip to reviewing your game then send me a PM and I'll review your game when I have the time before the next randomized game.

NOTE: I will not be able to finish the remaining reviews on time for the voting period, I will however take requests to review any game you'd like when I get the chance (Jam-related or not even)

The randomized order

Spoiler

 

Reviews (done) - Although I'll mention whether a game fit the handicap, it doesn't hold much weight in my votes, unless I think you applied it better than I could have expected.

I won't look for any post jam versions of games but if you want me to play them pm me or something.

Ult's Review Post!

 

Here's how this works:

I review games based mostly on concept and originality, followed by fun and execution. There's a trade-off between polish/completeness and innovation in the Jam, and I believe taking risks and experimenting is more important than staying in your comfort zone!

 

I'm playing all the games but only reviewing what you request by PM. All I ask if I review your game is that you reply to me, because they DO take some time to write. The first 5 requests are guaranteed a review; everybody after that gets one if I have time! Also, let me know if there's something specific you want me to mention in your review!

 

Good luck everybody!

 

Votes: Sorry, I won't be voting this time. I never managed to finish all the games.

 

Reviews: (5/5 done)

For those of you who like to CTRL+F: Sore O Kopi, The Red Seal, She's Had Enough, Charlie's Spiritual Adventure, Zeninja

Thoughts after review: 
This jam has been a great one, with a great theme and interesting handicap & hype object. There's been lots of high-quality entries and less low-quality ones, and all of them were, at least, likeable and enjoyable in their own way. I will update this post with the final rankings on top tomorrow, based on score.

I played all the games with the time I have. I don't have the time to play each game again and again. So the game had to be attractive in the first 30 seconds.

I played a couple one with my kids. They helped me to choose between second and third position.

 

1st Place - Sushido - Diptoman
2nd Place - Ninja Rusken - Greenblizzard
3rd Place - Ultimate Ninja - MonstrGaming

 

 

Best Use Of Theme - Sore O Kopi - rui.rosario

Best Use of Handicap - Sore O Kopi - rui.rosario

Best Use of Underwear - Charlie's Spiritual Adventure - ghandpivot

 

Best Presentation - Hiznopellagio
