---------------------------------------------------------------
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*...

ATTENTION! The last GMC Jam Games Topic on these forums! - GMCJam#21

14 January 2016 - 09:00 AM

Welcome to the official GMC Jam #21 Games Topic!


AczgxAZ.png

 

 

The last real GMC Jam Theme is...

 

DAY AND NIGHT!!!

or

SACRIFICE!!!

 

That's right folks, due to popular demand (& cos the results were razor tight) you can choose *either* theme, & all is right with the world!

 

Start your... engine fingers!!!

 

:lol:

 

HANDICAP : THE GAME MUST UTILIZE HUMOR AS PART OF THE GAMEPLAY OR STORYLINE

 

HYPE OBJECT : GIFTS

 

 

Here you MUST POST YOUR GAMES to be considered for the final voting and to receive any prizes. There are some strict rules for posting in this topic and anyone who does not follow them will have their posts removed, so I strongly advise you read (and re-read!) the following before doing something you may regret later :

  • Each entry has ONE post only. It must be used to show development of your game (while the Jam is on, you may are encouraged to <EDIT> your post to update people on your progress), or the actual finished game itself.
  • A link to your game MUST be posted here before the end of the Jam to qualify for votes in the final stage. An actual topic in the Games Forum is not necessary, but bare in mind that this topic is only for games - so if you want feedback, criticism or comments on your game it is recommended that you create a WIP topic and link to that too.
  • This topic is ONLY for showcasing the games and their progress, not for discussion or any other type of post. If you wish to comment on a game, do it in the actual games topic (or in the GMC Jam discussion topic), but not here! All posts that break this rule will be deleted during the Jam. When voting begins, comments can then be made within the context of the vote in the voting topic.
  • When adding new progress blogs/screenshots to your post (via the <EDIT> button) please use the SPOILER tags to hide previous content. In this way we can keep the topic tidy and organised and people can see the progression of your game from start to finish.
  • If you drop out of the Jam, (please don't but *if* you do) PLEASE PM me to sort out your post (& don't just delete the contents).

A zip file will be created within a few days of the Jam finishing to facilitate the playing of all entries.
This zip will have a randomiser in it so that people play the games in a random order, so don't think that calling your game A.A.A. Aardvarks Ardent Adventures (for example) is going to get you more plays!

It is STRONGLY recommended that you create some form of "help" page in your game as some (most?) people will NOT have read your posted topic and so have no idea what controls your game has, nor how it is to be played etc etc etc... Not including this information will have a negative impact on your game so I recommend enough that you take a few extra minutes to do it.

And that's about it. I encourage each of you that is working on a game to create videos, take screenshots and generally create a developers blog in your post. Each new entry can be edited into the post while old entries can be hidden using SPOILER tags and if you wish to discuss anything Jam related, remember that we still have the Official Jam Topic, which the moderators check regularly and there you can ask questions, make suggestions or discuss entries.

Good luck to all who participate and as always I trust this will be another fantastic community jam and that everyone will have fun!

 

Let's go out with a bang!!! :bunny:


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

21 November 2015 - 06:04 PM

THE GMC JAM 21 DISCUSSION TOPIC

 

EMERGENCY SIGNATURE UPDATE!

THEMES:

 

DAY AND NIGHT OR SACRIFICE

 

HANDICAP : THE GAME MUST UTILIZE HUMOR AS PART OF THE GAMEPLAY OR STORYLINE

 

HYPE OBJECT : GIFTS

 

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

 

The Jam results are out!
(sorry for making you wait till Wednesday, early time-zoners :whistling:)


First things first: it's been decided that people won't, in fact, be disqualified over not voting. It turned out there would be more mess than it's worth, with readjusting the rankings, dropping some best-of winner and whatnot. Admittedly, there has been better reviews quality than the last time, but that might be caused by generous rewards pool for Best Reviewer, maybe (or fewer games, or people just feeling like reviewing)? If you waited for opportunity to say "Told ya!", now might be the time. ^^'
(hope those who voted specifically not to be disqualified won't be mad?)
With that said, now for the actual results...

Great Jam everyone, see you again on the GMC: Next~!

 

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

 

 

It's time to jam with other members of the community, prove your game-making skills, play some awesome games, & give & receive constructive feedback!
This fine event will run from Friday 15thof January through Sunday 17th - for a grand total of 72 hours.
For you newcomers out there, here's some handy info to get you on your way...
 
 
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 on Friday 15th (but theme voting will take place over 24 hours on Thursday). The contest is 72 hours long from...
00:00 UK time Friday 15th to 23:59 UK time Sunday 17th.
 
 
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 pool for next Jam.
  • The theme will be voted on, from a pool of 3, 24 hours before the start of the Jam.

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 - but *should not* count towards scoring/voting on the games.

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 pool of 3 themes (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.
  • 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)

GMC JAM 21 - New Additional Rules

  • No "Installers". (it's just too messy & inconvenient for people)
  • You *must* include a proper link to your game. (not just a GameJolt/Itch.io link)
  • You must have a post count of at least 10 for your votes to count. (Please introduce yourself & join in on the GMC Jam discussion topic)
  • You must still be active on the forums after the Jam ends for your votes to count. (No voting for a friend & then never again being involved in the community).
  • 1st Place gets to choose *3* Possible Themes. (These 3 are kept secret as usual. But then in the last 24 hours before Jam starts, we all *vote* on our favorite from these 3 & the one with the most votes becomes the Theme.)
  • Starting time will be precise. (Most people didn't appreciate that Jam 20 started unexpectedly early).
  • Deadline time will be precise. (Anyone who submits via PM, after the deadline, will be placed in a separate folder of shame - "Late Entries" in the Jam zip, making their entry less likely to be played & more likely to be judged harshly - so *get your entry in on time*)
  • Teams will be restricted to a maximum of *3* persons. (Some teams were *very* large in Jam 20. Large team sizes are reducing the total game entry count too much. A maximum of 3 lets each person shine more).
  • Voting period will be 2 weeks. (As it was for most Jams. 3 weeks just hasn't worked as intended, for *most* people it just meant more procrastination before rushing to review & vote in the final few days. And it badly effects the "hype" of the Jam (the longer it takes for results, the less people care).
  • Tone will be more serious. (Many people were put off by the random, annoying way I revealed the Theme. That won't happen again. Jam Logo & presentation will be more serious, in an attempt to draw in more people & raise the standard of the Jam. I won't push local memes that could alienate new people - too many people were wondering what my face had to do with anything in Jam 20 for example). We'll still keep it "fun" - just not crazy, random "fun".
  • If you want to place, you must vote. (Votes for your entry will be removed from the result tally, unless you yourself have cast at least your top 3 votes).
  • In the case of teams, just 1 member of the team is required to cast their vote. (So teams are not at a disadvantage).
  • Vote tallying system will be 1/vote +m.
  • You are strongly encouraged to review & vote for as many games as you can within the given timeframe.
  • "Best Reviewer" & "Best Devblog" will be chosen after voting ends, by a team of 3 Mods.

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 pool of 3 themes, 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!
