PostSubject: I'm doing a Game in a Game Jam   Tue 5 Sep 2017 - 22:01

Hi all

I remember there was a previous topic about this elsewhere; I assumed there was one of these already in this one. If this needs to be moved/removed, please do so, o magic admins.


On Monday morning, one of my workmates asked if anyone wants to be involved in a GameJam. Next thing you know I'm downloading Unity and learning C#. Luckily 3/4 of the guys are 3D modellers, so I don't have to do any drawing! I'll try and get a Grackler reference in, but it might be difficult to explain to the others.

Lad! Delighted to read this. Some lovely stuff has come out of past game jams; hope you have a brilliant time. Good luck and good skill. Cool

Aw, thanks everyone! We've got an idea, but have now got to decide and make everything else. Plus we work for a 3D design company so might be completely burned out at the end of a working day Neutral .

Good luck Jimmer. Here's an idea:

You can have that for free. Thumbs Up!

Ah, best of luck Jimmers! If you're planning on releasing whatever you put out, I'll definitely give it a play. Grin

I'm fairly sure this makes you the best forumite by default. Here we are, on a forum based around gaming of the Nintendo variety, and you're programming a game. Impeach Rum, Jimbob for Forum President!

But seriously sir, best of luck. Thumbs Up! I hope we'll all give it a play. (Unless it's an FPS.)

Wouldn't EofGiz be president by your logic, Balla?

That's very kind of you, but yes I think there are 3 or 4 peeps that actually know how to make games already on this forum!

Plus I don't think I can put a Grackler in, in the 3 week timescale.

But yeah, I'm sure I'll send it round to play once it's done (If it's done!)

Right. OK. Look. We probably thought that, with 8 of us, we'd have a 20 hour completely finished experience. However, the "trouble" with professional 3D modellers is that they thought properly about how everything should look. So it's an aesthetically-cohesive 2 and a half minutes of game.

Before you ask: no, none of those voices are me.

I found the game I think https://dast-745137.itch.io/super-cut I'll give it a play now

Game Jams are literally the best part of game development. I've participated in a few and had a lot of fun each time. I've done the global game jam each year these past two years, which is a game jam that's done over a weekend in January. The games I've made from them are here: https://globalgamejam.org/users/nathan-garrett Click to crash went really well, but we tried to go to far with sorcerer's guild and it came out a bit crap. And our artists were a bit absent too. You're welcome to "play" them. I made a game last year in a separate jam that I was really proud of but I can't seem to find it right now.
Perhaps we as a forum could make a game? We may not have any games artists but if any of you can do 2d art and/or sprite sheets we could do a basic platformer or something. It wouldn't be anything spectacular but we'd have a game.

Good luck getting it to happen... but if it does, I'll merrily be on soundtrack duties.

You might also have a fight over who does the voice acting. As probably the poshest man here, I'm up for doing the villain.

Excellent - I will check out your work shortly Mr Duck.

In truth, I too feel, in retrospect, a bit disappointed with the things that weren't finished i SuperCut, given that we had a month. It seemed that some people (who are professional 3D model creators, but not for games) took a bit too long in creating what were essential components.
