Flying back twenty years
So calm and easy on the eyes
Revive a genre to your cheers
Now Flying Toast With Jam will rise!
And it's Code! Code! Code!
Code like you've never seen
It's neither flim nor flam
We pop up to save your screen
For Flying Toast With Jam!
Welcome to Flying Toast With Jam, the screensaver jam!
In this jam, participants will create homages to the old-school screensavers that rescued so many CRT monitors from image burn-in. The screensavers of yore were effectively a design playground, frequently containing esoteric and surreal art with no purpose but to intrigue and distract. It's an aesthetic that is still used today, but rarely with the open-ended, infinite intent of screensavers. This jam intends to bring that back!
If you need inspiration, Bryan Braun created this CSS-driven After Dark homage so you can experience the screensavers of yesterday ... today!
Questions? Resources? Know how to actually convert html5 to a screensaver format? Hit me up on twitter.
About the jam and jamperson: Hi, I'm Caelyn Sandel, aka @inurashii and I love making games and jams (#RuinJam was my first)! I was inspired to create this jam by a conversation between The Porpentine and Lilith that I rudely butted into. I think that everyone should make games about whatever they want. You can find my writing and games at inurashii.xyz, and if you like them please consider contributing to my Patreon.
