A bit of blood is not a problem. You need to be over a certain age to use itch, so anyone playing the game should be able to handle a little bit of blood from a horror game. 👍

A few things about the jam to keep in mind:
1.You need to submit both a version here on itch, and one on liluo.io
2.Your game version here on itch will be locked once the jam timer ends, so make sure you submit your itch game first. Liluo can be done after.
3.When uploading to liluo, there is a genre option for "game jam 3", that'll put your game in a special category with all of the other games from this jam, so be sure to add that as a genre.
Finally, pretend the jam actually ends a few hours before the time on the page and try to submit then. You don't want some accident to happen at the last moment that prevents you from submitting, so don't leave it to the last hour. Save yourself the stress,😅
Anyhow, good luck with your games, and I'm excited to see what you folks make. 👋
You can. 👍
You can update the game file and tweak everything as much as you want during the jam start/end date and after the jam. But you can't update your game during the voting period, no new uploads will be accepted during the voting period.
You can all join the jam, but only 1 person submits the game. And then in that game's setting, you add the accounts of your team mates as contributors so they show up on the game page as part of the team. If they're contributors on a game that is submitted to the jam, they can play/rate games in the jam during the voting period. 👍
If you add your team mates as contributors to your game on itch, they will be able to rate games in the jam from their accounts.
If you don't add them through itch, then itch won't know they took part and only the account that submitted the game will be able to rate.
As long as games have some tiny connection to the theme, they won't be 'rejected'. But one of the categories for rating is the theme, so if you have a weak connection to the theme, you'll rank poorly.
I suggest you try your best to make a game based off of the theme. 👍
You mean from the conviction of gun dude? That's what it's for, anyone who wants to can copy/build upon the game to make their own. 👍
Also check out the "small randomization" video on the GDevelop youtube channel, there are some examples of enemy and object spawning in there.
Thanks for playing, and for the feedback!
I would like to go back at some point and rebalance a little bit. It seems to be getting hard a little too quickly, it might be nice to have a slightly slower increase, but then it plateaus a bit... People who do REALLY WELL get ahead of the enemy's increasing stats and can just "go forever". 🤔
Thanks again for the feedback, it'll all help with balancing if I find time to come back to this one. 👍
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!
And yeah, I tried a couple dozen different iterations of the flame, but could not settle on anything I liked. I just ended up picking one I didn't hate and kept going with the rest of the game. 😅
Thanks a lot! I still love that old heist game from Vimjam1, but I know how to do so much more now. 😅
And yeah, don't worry about getting a high score, I thought I added an artificial hard cap on the game by having enemies scale with more health as waves progress, but some people are bashing through that cap and getting crazy high scores. 😅
