If you've heard a phrase a million times, chances are it's a cliché. For example, “a blast from the past,” “play your cards right,” “it’s an uphill battle,” “avoid it like the plague,” and “don’t deploy on a Friday." You catch my drift?
Take one (or more) of your favorite clichés and use them to inspire your game.
Need some ideas? Here are a few that spring to mind:
The sky’s the limit! I’ve created a list of clichés (almost 4,000) that you might find helpful if you’re really stuck.
Game Off is our annual game jam challenging folks to build a game based on a theme.
Voting will open shortly after the jam ends and is open to everyone who’s submitted a game. Entries will be rated on the following categories: Overall, Gameplay, Graphics, Audio, Innovation and Theme Interpretation. Voting will end on Jan 5th at 13:37 PT.
As always, we'll highlight some of our favorites games on the GitHub Blog, and the world will get to enjoy (and maybe even contribute to or learn from) your creations.
With so many free, open source game engines and tutorials available online, there’s never been an easier (or more exciting!) time to try out game development.
