Feeling left out and in need of a jam? Then take part in this little game jam here:

Have a nice weekend!


EDIT: Hello, this is your PoV speaking! Thanks for sharing xhunterko.

In case you hadn’t heard the news, fellow LD’er David S. Gallant made a little game for the October Challenge inspired by his dayjob. Today (Tuesday the 29th) he got some coverage by one of Canada’s Largest newspapers, the Toronto Star redacted and replaced with this (copy of original Toronto Star article here Amazing, they killed the entire website hosting it). In what might possibly be the craziest day of his life, David went from gainfully (?) employed to “Anyone Hiring?” in a matter of hours.

So in typical gamedev fashion, Mike Bithell of Thomas Was Alone suggested we have a game jam. Turns out, I know a pretty good place to host game jams. :D

So this upcoming Superbowl weekend (February 2nd and 3rd), if the news has inspired you to protest through game creation, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a MiniLD style submission form we can use to collect games created for the jam.

[ Submit | View All ]

I’ll be leaving the form open to submissions for a few days after the weekend too, for anyone late to the party.

PS: Support David by buying the game (just $2 or PWYW). Steam Greenlight thumbs up welcome too.

    Any artists looking for a programmer? I have some game ideas but I have no artistic ability at all.

  7. Osgeld says:

    cant see the copy

    so, how’s that working out for you

  8. xhunterko says:

    Just a heads up! If anyone’s worked on their entry early because of being unable to jam I think it’s fine that they should still submit their entry!
