In order to streamline the playing, judging, recording, and winners announcement process, we’re requesting that teams participating in the jam let us know beforehand in order to prepare appropriately for the event.

We expect a few more submission than normal this go around and appreciate your help in making this event awesome :cool:

Nice, can’t wait. I just wish it wasn’t colliding with LD34.

Just come up with a game that fits both themes! I mean how hard could that be right?

I have sent a pm to you, Alexander.
This will be my first game jam :cool:

Hello all. Avolanty and I are looking to join a team. He made the Sept winner death loves doggy and I have worked with him on the Oct and Nov jams. Message me and lets have fun.

Is that allowed?

You’d also have to wait until Friday 9PM EST to start since LD34’s theme will be announced then.

Might be better to just make two different games that share assets and most code.

Exactly my plan! :slight_smile:

If anyone could use an extra pair of hands, I’m available. I can do whatever.

Might want to fix the rules section its in the past tense. Hopefully I will be able to particpate I have a pretty cool idea I might use if it fits with whatever the theme is.

I hope the theme will be something serious or scary ior even something dark!
Oh im so pumped at my first jam!


My name is Austin Ward, I’m from Adam VR. This will be my third game jam. My team’s previous entries are Margo’s Escape (August) and James and the Giant Robot (October).

My other team members are occupied so I am looking for other people to jam with. I have experience as a level designer, programmer, and composer. I am also capable of low poly art and animating in blender. And I’m all about having fun!

Would anyone like to team up?

Was the theme announced? The countdown timer says it was 25 mins ago, but I’m watching the stream, and the thread isn’t updated (I assume that just takes time)

Not yet. The stream is still going

Oh I see, thanks!

It’s time to kick out the #ue4jam

@Allar How would you test a game if it is only Local Multiplayer? Do you have people who come over to your place or remote into your machine?

I enjoy taking part in these jams so much but I find the themes difficult due to them being weird quotes or phrases. More interesting ones would be ‘one button’ where you have the gameplay element to build upon with other ideas.

Tried working with SDL2 today, can’t get the thing to compile in VS 2015. This may be my new project for the next few days instead…

Team Filizitas still isnt writed down :open_mouth: but im in! I wrote you a PN :3

I like these topics as they are open to interpretation.

Spirit of the rule, instead of being explicit.

Everyone has their own perspective of how they read the theme, it makes for a much more interesting experience.

I really wanted to do Oct 2015 (Should of Giants), but time did not permit. I was going to do a game where the player character literally “Stands on the shoulder’s of giants” to achieve the objective of the game.
