Welcome Campers, to the first unofficial Camp Fangamer Game Jam - Camp Fanjammer!
This is a game jam aimed at getting everyone started making games. No matter what your skill level, everyone is invited to participate! Once the submissions period has ended, everyone will be able to try out everyone's games! There is no judging, just us supporting each other and having fun! You can make any kind of game you want, whether it be analog (tabletop game!) or digital (VIDJEO GARMZ!).
Starting Friday night at Midnight (Pacific Standard Time) on January 23rd, everyone will begin making a short game.
The deadline for submission is the following Sunday at Midnight (Pacific Standard Time) on January 24th.
Because designing a game can be daunting, we're going to have a theme!
The theme of our first game jam is "CAMPING WITH FRIENDS"
You can interpret this theme however you want, literally or metaphorically!
Remember, the goal of a game jam is to complete a game, no matter how small and basic!
HELP! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE?!
Don't worry! We'll help you brainstorm! <3
CLICK ON THE "COMMUNITY" TAB TO ACCESS OUR FORUM! :D
1.) Keep it simple!
2.) Try focusing on a single mechanic or idea. (e.g. You're a skeleton who cooks spaghetti.)
3.) Make it playable, not perfect.
4.) Don't be too hard on yourself! :)
5.) Even if you don't 'finish', submit what you made! :)
If you need a recommendation for an easy program to use, PM me @bubblyoasis or Ben @zesuben!HOW TO SUBMIT GAMES:
4.) Follow the instructions on the upload page and fill out as much information as you want.
5.) Upload the game file.
6.) If you have time, upload a title image or some screenshots.
7.) Once you've uploaded the game to itch, come back here and submit your game to the game jam!
8.) Marvel at your accomplishment and revel in the joy of discovering everyone's creations!
If you're submitting a tabletop game, make sure to save it as a type of file that people can easily open and print out, such as a Word Doc or a PDF file (as people may not have photoshop or other specific programs). Bonus points if you can get players to use household objects and common items as playing pieces! (For example, most people have a pair of dice) If you need a good example of this, the people of CheapAss Games do just that!
