Just wanted to say hey and welcome!
Yo Clumsy Mage! Thanks for the question, yeah I ended up deleting the clone jam :/ I wasn't completely sure about copyright stuff so I took it down... It probably would've been totally fine but I decided better safe than sorry, so I did this jam instead. Though, I might still do the clone jam after this, so keep an eye out for that!
Yo TTBS (Terry The Bodacious Skeleton)
That's a good idea man, I've actually never setup a discord server but this might be a good excuse to do so!
No prob! In fact speaking of getting the weekend- I'm actually planning on revealing the theme this Friday (4/27) to give everyone a little head start on the jam; even though it technically starts on May 1st. I hope that helps and to answer your question, that's what game jamming is all about; squeezing in time to work on your game a.k.a. cancelling all your weekend plans so you can lock yourself in your room and make games! ;)
Hey Headax, looks like you've assembled a good team together on Crowdforge! As far as team size goes, I had initially set the limit at 4 but then I realized a team size limit isn't a requirement (on crowdforge) So now it's open to any size!
NICE! Glad to have you in on the action!
And feel free to start anytime :)
YES! I'm hoping everyone's had luck so far with getting ideas for their games, I've got a good feeling you guys are gonna make some awesome stuff!
As it turns out, the hard part is picking WHICH idea to go with! "Cult Classics" is such a fun and open-ended theme that so many interesting possibilities come to mind. I think I've got it narrowed down now, though, and will start posting updates on my progress once there's something to show.
That sounds good to me! I think anything with a cult following works just fine and I'm excited to see what it is ;D
Yo Mo! Thanks for jumping in on the jam and your timing is perfect! And it seems like we’re getting a handful of LD#41 jammers crossing over (although I should mention, this jam was totally planned before their theme dropped- sort of a crazy coincidence, I think) Anyway, to answer your question, I’m actually not sure of what the standard is for posting devlogs on the community feed. But, I personally don’t mind- I might start a main “Devlog” section and then just post replies (to your own post within the main devlog) to keep it nice and concise. What do you think about that? Let me know, I like your idea!
Yes, that'll be a great idea. In that way, I think it encourages people to share their progress, struggles and achievements.
