This jam is now over. It ran from 2015-08-01 04:00:00 to 2015-09-01 03:59:59.
In celebration of GGMaker's release on Steam, I'm bringing back an idea I had a long time ago; A monthly game jam, specifically for users of GGMaker!
You have the entirety of August to make a game based upon the theme. What is the theme? This month's theme is...
When oranges meet, they always play valiantly.
The theme has been decided by attaching random nouns, adjectives, and verbs to a sentence I devised. In other words, I did some madlibs until one sounded nice. Then I did some more, and then people voted on them. Maybe you voted too, who knows.
Now, I imagine people might have a hard time figuring out what to do with a ridiculous phrase like the one above. So I just want to make note of the fact that this is a theme. You can (and should) do everything you can think of to twist and contort its meaning to ludicrous extents. The only requirement is that you incorporate it into your game in some capacity.
There's not a lot of rules regarding this jam, so here's a quick list.
The free version mentioned above is available at the GGMaker website, in case you weren't aware.
If you have a suggestion for future iterations of the jam, or just want to talk to people, check out the official jam discussion thread.
