What is the specific cutoff time EST? Some days, morning for me is 3:00pm after a night of drinking. :smiley:

@bokuden - if you’re a bit past the actual cutoff, we don’t mind too much :slight_smile:

Yall should totally include a link to my twitch channel in the first post. nudge nudge, wink wink, slap slap, prod prod


How many entries do you guys usually receive?

Somewhere between 30-40 usually. It’s been more and more lately it feels like.

Cool, I am thinking about entering this one (I want a forum badge). I am confident that I could make good use of the theme, and make it fun, but am I allowed to use royalty free assets? I don’t have a team, and am certainly no artist.

You can use the stock/free assets, but remember that visuals count for 1/3 of the score, so you will want to have some original stuff in there.

I have finally decided to participate on the Game Jam good luck.

Woot! Calendar is looking open, I’ll be there!

I LOVE game jams and using UE4 in them.
and making things explode.
and adding a chicken into my jam games…
I’m in!

Does every team member get a badge if they win top 3?

Ohh very cool. time to wrangle up the clan

Team Skullkitty is participating! Good luck, everyone! May the best team win! :rolleyes:

Yes! As long as we have their info.

On that note - if you’re missing a badge, let me know what month and game you were so we can ratify it :slight_smile:

2nd’d - if that’s a word, if not I totally agree.
(pending license restrictions etc. etc.)

Is there any wiggle room in that team size? Wouldn’t be possible to have 6?

Maybe even 7 then?

Cool if anybody needs a 3d artist on there team I’m free hit me up!

You don’t mean only stock/**free **assets right? I mean you could use assets from the marketplace as well correct?
