Hey hi hello folks! A new year has begun and there's still plenty of time before the convention season takes over, so in the meantime, let's make some wonderful and silly games together! :D

THE THEMES HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!

  • EAST VS WEST
  • ONE BIG CHOMP

PICK ONE (OR TWO) (OR NONE)!

  • START: January 27th
  • END: February 5th (submit your game before that day is over!)
  • There will be TWO special themes picked from GB staff and community suggestions!
  • Follow one theme, or both! (but if you don't want to follow either that's okay too!)
  • The game should also be somehow related to Giant Bomb
  • Do what you want, but please try not to be too crude or offensive -
    be a Giant Bomber, not a Giant Bummer!

So that's January 27th to February 5th - a little over 9 days total, which includes two weekends. Hopefully that's enough to let as many people as possible make some really cool, really silly games!

OFFICIAL DISCUSSION AND TEAM-UP THREAD ON GIANT BOMB DOT COM

The Themes

The list started being put together when I asked GB folks to submit themes during the 2015 PAX Prime panel, and I've since tracked down everyone else to get a complete set. Dan is off cooldown and has submitted a new one, so there's a chance his idea will be picked again! Here are the themes; two will be chosen!

  • The Community: Johnny V
  • Jeff: East VS West <<<SELECTED THEME
  • Dan: Waluigi's first official Nintendo game
  • Vinny: Italian Pac-Man
  • Jason: Babies
  • Alex: FMV
  • Brad: Dave Lang's Ideal Game
  • Drew: (on a 1-jam cooldown)
  • Rorie: One Big Chomp <<<SELECTED THEME

Good luck, and check out this thread on the Giant Bomb forums for the latest updates!
