We all know what are the two most important things in awesome game: great title and gameplay we’ve seen before. So i want to invite you to participate in gamejam where you should start a little bit different: from a title. Start with the idea of title from existing game, twist it and add simplified gameplay. Here’s some examples:
Feel free to use above as you like.
If you can’t participate in jam you can always come up with an idea of title, or if you have (great) title you can make a mockup of what your game could look like or a cd/dvd case - and start a new topic on forum. Who knows, maybe someone else will be inspired by your inspiration that came from spiritual predecessor (what?).
Another great example is Norman’s Sky game by nothke (get here).
Hint: while making the best game title ever you can use rhyme generator ex. rhymezone.com (warning: results may vary).
Think about original game and try to figure out what is the most important thing in gameplay - take it and do something great (with a great title :).
Also this is a Demake jam so all graphics and music has to be simplified. Use whatever style you want: low resolution, 16 colors, midi music, 3D to 2D. Or pick one of your style.
You can do a demake of an old game, so it would be a redemake! (what a game would that be...)
So, three things in mind:
And don’t you forget to put as many good vibrations to your great game (with a great title) as you can.
Happy jamming :)
