GDQ is a black hole of attention, a singularity of productivity. Despite my best efforts, I always seem to spend the whole week doing nothing but watching strangers play video games.

Here's my last desperate attempt at salvaging a GDQ week. I humbly accept that I'll spend 168 consecutive hours staring at video games β€” but if I try really hard, maybe I can also make a video games.

Time starts when AGDQ starts, and ends 24 53ΒΌ hours after AGDQ ends.


This is extremely un-serious and low-pressure, so it's a good excuse to try out an engine or platform or library you've never tried before. Or make a game if you've never done that before.

It doesn't even have to be a video game! Design a board game, or a card game, or a fantasy sport that can only be played by dragons. Just don't stare slack-jawed at Twitch the whole time. Drag some inspiration, kicking and screaming, out of that constant firehose of flashing lights and strange gamer memes.

Rules

  1. There are no rules.
  2. Everyone wins. πŸ†
  3. I can't play your dang game if it doesn't run on Linux come on

If you need a theme, I heartily encourage something ironic, like hard to speedrun or self-playing or it's Eevee's birthday on Thursday.

FAQ

Q: Do you mean "hard to speedrun" like Super Metroid (high ceiling), Yugioh FM (mostly RNG), Mario Galaxy (very long), or Galaga (auto scroller)?
A: YOU ARE THINKING WAY TOO HARD ABOUT THIS

Q: I would love to participate but I have a job and/or school!
A: Okay but I better not catch you marathoning speedruns for sixteen hours
