going to announce date, as well as themes and rules all at once, to make a nice change
- theme: Greatest Fear.
- rule: Collaborate with someone who has never worked on a game before.
you don’t *have* to work with someone else, it’s optional, but encouraged. and collaboration can be of any level, as long as someone (or thing, I won’t discriminate against pets, zoo animals or alien encounters of the game kind) contributes something, be it level design, a doodle on paper you scan and use as a sprite, photos of them for character frames, or writes the dialogue, or voice acts… whatever.
and due to the nature of this rule, these contributions can be made at any time, before, during, or after the weekend of the mini (and I’m super lenient with time anyway, so feel free to take your own 48 hour-ish chunk out of September as you please for putting it all together, the weekend date is mostly so if you want to work alongside others its then).
- the start date: 3am GMT/UTC 25th September.
- end date (not strict): 3am GMT/UTC 27th September.
but like I say, its loose so do whatever suits you.
also judging entries; I know some people like to have minis with a round of judging, I wont be having that, and it’s not up for discussion.
also also, it’s my hope that people will explore what their real greatest fear is through the games they make during this mini, but you are welcome to interpret the theme how you like, or disregard it all-together.
any questions about the rules or anything just comment on this post, but as a general rule anything you want to do, I’m cool with
