Won’t be streaming the play through this month, sorry about that.

Will be taking over for @ until further notice. Twitch

Hey All!

Looking forward to participating once again~

Going to keep following tradition and dedicate half of the given time to learning some new skill.
In this case… creating characters in Blender and creating animations for them.

He’s an injured vet it seems.

Do you have a Vive?

Aye, I have a Vive. No Rift though :frowning:

Am I wrong or did you not play through the VR games from the oct jam?

True story, that was only due to timing. was about to start his streaming the next day, and in a rush to finish all the non-VR games, they had become out of sight, out of mind. But, since I’ll be taking over full time, I will be ensuring all games are played, in submission/request order.

Good to hear that you will in the future. So the mega jam killed and now you’ll be doing all the streaming instead?

Nah, @ is a tough guy. But I can’t really speak for him, so you’ll have to ask him for his exact reasons.


Hi! I’m a 3d artist and would like to participate! Is there anywhere I could look for a team that would need me?


We’re looking for ambitious coders to work with for this game jam.

Here’s our work-

(character artist - able to do props/environment)
(rigger/animator - able to do animation blend spaces and state machines, environment and prop modelling, basic particle effects)

We worked on many game jams since august last year and can cover almost everything art related from creating, implementing and presenting them in UE4.

Source control is a must (we have a perforce server) and examples of previous works e.g. personal projects, mods, jams etc.
Feel free to pm me or Skype me if interested in teaming up.


Very happy to try my first Game Jam =D

I can’t send you a message in PM :frowning:

Hi! I can’t send you a message in PM too :confused:

I am looking for a team. I’m a Designer and animator looking to work with a team. I’m relearning my skillset. But I would love to animate for a game jam project to get back into the swing of things!

I’m a coder. I’m great at Unity and have used UE3 a fair amount, but this’ll be my first time with UE4. Wanna team up?

I’m still looking for a team! I can sculpt and texture props easy and can do a bit of character modeling. I have yet to learn animation sadly. If you want my help this month or next just PM me.

Here is a sample of my work.

My first game jam. Kinda starting to feel a little anxious… None of the emoticons look like the way I feel. 14 minutes to theme announcement. Good luck guys.
