Hey y'all! We’re returning for another FLATJAM to take us into the new year. This is the third!!!! Everyone can make interactive stories and art, so let's do it! They can be funny, weird, sad, exciting, scary and everything in between or beyond.
Then release it! Make lovely itch.io landing pages. Include images of your game and your materials!
Flatgames are all about presenting a game as the most raw combination of movement, art and sound.
Think about how you can use the 2D canvas to represent time and space too! That's it!
Break the rules if you wanna (they're there to help), but stay true to the ethos! (If you like after a set amount of time or through exploring, the game may loop, end or transition to another flatgame scene.)
Use any tool you like, eg: such as Construct 2, Flatpack or even Unity!
We have an awesome tutorial by Siobhan Gibson. The First-Timers' Guide to Making a Flatgame!
And we two unity templates to start from by Ragzouken, Siobhan Gibson and me
- Basic Template (includes the two main scripts and a simple scene)
- Advanced Template (includes bonus scripts and examples of them) Or if you want just the scripts: - Basic Scripts - Bonus Scripts
So, let's get the jam started! 8)
