An open event where you are invited to join the challenge to make a proper game sustainably, without
More and more games are made in tight schedules and/or over scoped and poorly planned, resulting in people making games suffering from it. Game jams can be cool, but they often perpetuate this crunch culture.
Hi, I'm Tim Krief, last year, fed up with the crunch culture, . I've decided to make a game in a 35 hours work week during what I called the "One Week Crunchless Challenge" and it was so interesting and instructive that I decided to hold "gamejam-like" events with this concept! Last year the first edition was a great event, with a great vibe. The Crunchless Challenge is open to all again, and for this second edition, we'll have to plan a week of sustainable game making and stick to it!
You can check and support work from previous participant on the first challenge's submission page. You can click on each submission to check how each participant handled the challenge, what was their schedule, if they succeeded etc. It can be really interesting and helpful!
If you ever took part of a game jam before, this is totally different:
At the end of the challenge, if you end up making something you are proud to call "the game/update/progress/vertical slice I/we made" and proud to show it and share it around, (eventually sell it if it's a complete piece), by managing your time in a way that respects what you planned at the beginning, without having to crunch, then you succeed.
You are highly encouraged to:
On top of the challenge's Community Tab you can use to exchange with other participants, there's a discord channel available for real time communication! You're also invited to use the hashtag #CrunchlessChallenge when sharing about the event and your progress on twitter, on the fediverse or other platforms! That way we can all go and check what other people are working on and spread the world about the challenge!
This might be obvious but:
The Crunchless Challenge is hosted by me, TimKrief.
