FANTASTIC CLAY ART. YOU EVEN SIMULATED LIGHTING. KUDOS. The game's atmosphere is really nice and you nailed a short playthrough experience!

Great game!, I couldn't really see too far ahead but the controls and feel are solid! Spamming my projectiles ensured a lot of things didn't prevent me from invading Earth, plz nerf.

I too would go to great lengths to get my TV back if an evil wizard took it, loved the clay art and animations are stellar!

Loved this and  driving the tape measure! You have no idea how hard it was for me to get past the fast moving clouds in the beginning.. Great work!

Cutest. art. ever. The apples look juicy enough to pluck out of my screen

Really enjoyed this, almost therapeutic for me to play these kinds of puzzle games!

Really fun, loved art and combat especially for the boss fight! I "won the game won the game"!

Thanks!, a lot of content broke I'm attempting to fix everything by the end of Thursday

Going to try and make space invaders or a tower defense, nothing too big in scope

These are games from the previous year that embody the essence of the jam, besides learning something new and having fun of course!

Hey leafo, thanks for the help with visibility. We'll be sprucing up the page the next few weeks as well as posting a keynote!

I didn't see any other topics about game jam announcements here so I apologize if you were expecting a cool clay game when clicking on this..


BUT if you like that sort of stuff we're putting together an annual game jam as an homage to stop motion as an art form, we got a lot of feedback last year and everyone's projects were amazing for just 2 weeks of production! (Last years page) With that in mind we decided to increase the jam time to a WHOLE MONTH as many users joined but didn't get a chance to contribute a project!

Please sign up via the info links provided below!  

Jupiter Hadley played through all of last years' submissions and is doing an amazing job providing visibility for indie devs!

Hey SleepGary, post the link when you've uploaded so we can repost and give you a shout out! :)

Hey NWin!,

Yeah that's fine, You don't have to use stop motion animation in your game/visual experience but there are ways to emulate it within modern cg animation pipelines.

Most computer animation programs tween and blend animations for crisp and realistic visuals but with stop motion frame by frame pictures are taken of a representative physical model, regular cg animation is totally okay to use but if you're going for a stop motion aesthetic staggering your keyframes frame by frame style.

Example post of someone trying to achieve this in Unity3D

Art and shaders can be used to emulate the medium beyond animation as well

As long as your jamming and making something either based, inspired, or strewn from Stop Motion influence you need not worry about specifications!

Hey itch!,

I'm putting together a game jam dedicated to stop motion, it's a love letter to an animation technique lost to CGI and modern FX, remember all those weird Tim Burton-y, John Carpenter's horror sequence, and claymation movies like Wallace and Gromit, so come join if you used to like that niche stuff?

DM me if you want to help!(@jacobpeltola)

Thanks! :)

What kind of torture game?, I'm imagining a super creepy John Carpenter version of this game, the sky is indeed the limit all I ask is that you be courteous, considerate, and adhere to the itch.io submission guidelines.

Cool idea, but will Clippy from Microsoft make an appearance!?

Up to you!, These sort of things take a long time to setup so starting early is expected. We're hoping to reach out to game engine/craft store companies/chains to supply materials and software to jammers and decide on a finalized date soon too!, thanks for participating :)

I've appended some clay games from different genres people may be going for to give you an idea to go off of!
