#4949931 ATTENTION! IT HAPPENS *THIS* WEEKEND! - The GMC Jam 21 Discussion Topic

Also, *thank you* everyone who played my game.

It was total rubbish that I just threw together, but those reviews/comments make me smile. :)

 

PS: I'm fairly sure it took nvrogers longer to write that review than it took me to make the game, lol!

Cheers nvrogers! I had a good chuckle reading it! :lol:

Grats to all!

Crazy quality level this time round!

Really impressed with the mood/viuals in many of the games...

Massive thanks to Alice (again) who is really the one ensuring these Jams run smoothly :)

 

Apologies for not getting around to reviewing/voting...

but I've been busy lately & just didn't have the free time to play through all the games. :(

The ones I have played so far are amazing tho.

 

And now I step aside...

as the curtain falls on the GMC.

Nocturne will be back as DA JAM-MASTOR for the next Jam on the new forums (& I reckon he has some cool ideas for getting the numbers up again)...

so stay tuna'd for more info!

 

*bows out*

I'm gonna extend the voting period out a lil bit longer into Monday 8th...

just to allow people a bit more time to get more games reviewed & finalize their votes.

(And ensure we don't have any timezone complaints).

 

Get those votes in people! :)

Great review & voting turnout this time so far!

Nice job everyone!

Lol, I don't think it's so bad this time...

there are only 40 games to play & review (not including your own which ya can't vote for).

And probably 5 of those are joke games...

It's still quite a lot... but I think one of the advantages of a smaller turn-out like this is that it's more likely we'll see way more people playing & reviewing all the games & giving more detailed feedback! :)

So that's cool.

Making my way through 'em all myself at the moment! Some really amazing entries!!!

dadio seems to like the second last weekends better for some reason.

An attempt to make sure it doesn't overlap with other big popular Jams that tend to run "on the last weekend of the month"...

 

Tho, with Mark at the helm next time...

he'll have his own ideas about when to schedule it...

And I think he wants to push it back to Sat/Sun/Mon also.

 

Also, don't be surprised if that Tuesday thing turns out to be true...

but there was no way I could have known *shrugs*

#4938446 ATTENTION! Final GMC Jam Voting Topic! (GMCJam#21) VOTING ENDS SUNDAY...

Posted by dadio on 20 January 2016 - 09:01 AM

Ok folks!

GMC Jam NewsFlash!!!

 

VOTING ENDS ON SUNDAY 7th FEBRUARY

RESULTS WILL FOLLOW ON MONDAY 8th FEBRUARY

 

So be sure to get those votes in & remember that *this time* the rules about having to vote to win prizes are in effect.

(If you don't vote, you can't win).

 

----------

 

Welcome to the official GMC Jam 21 Voting Topic!

 

AczgxAZ.png

 

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.

DA JAM ZIP!

 

Jam ZIP is here!


courtesy of Alice, hosted by HayMan

 

---------------------------------------------------------------
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

 

----------

 

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 at least 3 weeks!

Results will be posted next month on the *new* GMC forums!

This time, *if you want to place* - you *have to* vote!

 

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 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 at result 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 DocNogloffic of occasions! :)

 

Note that when these forums do eventually go down... you can continue your reviews/votes *here*...

Hmmmm...

ok folks...

this forum is looking to be staying up quite a bit longer than anticipated...

soooo...

I'm gonna create a Game Voting topic *here* (HayMan also has one on his temporary forums)...

this is to keep the ball rolling & I figure it's nice to have a record *here* of stuff connected to the Jam right up until this forum actually goes down.

 

So, Imma do that now.

 

Also (posted this on HayMan's forums...

Review/voting was meant to be 2 weeks this Jam *but* with the shift over to *here* & then another shift-over to the new GMC forums imminent (& having no concrete times for when the GMC goes down & when the new one goes up & how long it will take people to migrate over) I figure...
*this Jam's total review/voting time will likely be something more like 4 weeks*
*but*
that might change depending on how fast things get done.
Will be a minimum of 3 weeks total tho no matter what.

Please get your reviews & votes in sooner rather than later...

& yes, this Jam *you must vote for at least your top 3 for your game to be considered valid for placing in the top 3.
:)

 

EDIT: Also, I'm aware this is all very messy... & far from ideal.

Know that when the new forums are *up*, I'll make sure that there is a proper record of the reviews/votes/results of Jam 21 complied & released *there* on the new forums.

 

Happy playing/reviewing/voting everyone!
