I don't know why, but the "{{ramdomThings}} simultor {{currntYear}}" joke never gets old. :D

I like the odd control scheme. Feels a lot like lemmings, but with a hangover.

Interesting. I did not expect to be playing play a relaxing horror game. Your creation leaves it self open to a lot of reinterpretation. Perhaps something horrible happened to this person. Perhaps a journey from blissful childhood in to temperamental adolescence. Anyway GJ

Playing reminds me of my real allotment.
And the memory fills my chest with excitement.
Planting seeds under the sun, in bare soil.
Rewards my soul, as my back pays the toil.
But my urge to plant must be kept at bay.
As snow again started falling, yesterday.

Created a new topic Is this Jam open for anyone?

It does not say anywhere that this is a closed jam, but the brief description does currently say the following:

<quote> You'll be tasked to create a JAM based around or in Hell. The class will then vote on which of the JAMS submitted will be the best. Good luck and have fun!
</quote>

This makes me wonder, who are the members of this "class". Sounds a bit like it's a jam organised by some game dev school by and/or for the students of that school. It could also be a particular social class (like the proletariate) or an MMORPG class (like a Shaman), but some how I doubt thath.

Submitted!

This was a real ride. Will most likely continue on this comic at some point in the future.
But now it's time for some well deserved rest and relaxation.

Just a heads up. I'm going to submit this in an hour or so. The jam ends in 23 hours, but most of those hours are either sleep-hours or day-job-hours in my time zone.

If I get any more pages during the night, then I'll add them and update the entry tomorrow when I get home from work.

New snapshot (again):

There is now a total of 7 pages, from 4 different artist (including myself).

For (budding) artists: Found this set of reference art recently.

New snapshot:

(The same URL will be reused throughout the jam).

Total number of pages: 3 (1 first page, 2 different second pages). At least one more page is apparently on it's way in from one of my collaborators. It's another (a third) second page.

I should probably start working on a first third page, preferably from a second page that is not my own.

(edit: consistent nomenclature)

Drawing interactive comics is strolling along nicely. I'm usually a programmer, so I had completely forgotten how much time it takes to clean up hand drawn art work. Perhaps it's faster to just trace the original scan.




> It's 2 am, I'm trying to learn a new engine and scripting language, I'm running out of beer and I have no idea what I'm doing...

I've never used Godot, but their site claims the scripting language is "python like", so that's always a good thing.

The first page is up!

I uploaded a sketch and not a cleaned (and spell-checked) one because I the rest of you to be able to start drawing as soon as possible. I will clean this one up tomorrow morning (it's sort of late over here).

I would like to take this occation recommend anyone interesting in participating to make at most 1-2 pages before your first page has been integrated into the game. This is to make sure that there are no misunderstandings about how this is going to work.

I will integrate pages and upload new snapshots in intervals between drawing my own pages.

Do make us the honour.
If you think of something cool, then do it. The nice way with this idea is that accountability is scalable all the way from "maybe I'll draw a single page or two" to "I will spend 48 hours drawing non-stop like the fate of the world depends on it".

In other words, contributing a little here should not stop you from making a more traditional jam entry as well.

Demo
I've cheated a bit and written the bulk of the games code ahead of time.

http://superattack.se/games/no-comfort-jam-2016/te...

This illustrates how it's going to work, but this is not the real story. I will draw the real first page at the start of the jam (once I've managed to get home from my day job).
Any one who wants to contribute is welcome to do so once the first page is in place.


Submission guidelines
Every page consists of one image, with an alt-text for screen readers.
Dimensions: 1000x600 px
Format: PNG, JPG, GIF
File size: < 250kb

I'll need to know what page it's supposed to follow after and what the selectable option (brown button) should say. I may take liberties with the exact phrasing to make the options stand out from each other more clearly.

Not that I think it will be a problem, but I reserve the right to refuse anything that I find pornographic or xenophobic (my hosting provider has rules and I want to make the world a more inclusive place).

Page(s) should be sent to: no-comfort@superattack.se

Short version
I am looking for people who may not want to do a whole jam, but fancy drawing a comic page or two.

If you're interested, reply to this post.

Slightly longer version
My regular way to approach a jam is to spend 90% of the time coding and then possibly cram some graphics into it at the very end. This time I'm taking the 'Unfamiliar Discipline' rout and making an interactive comic.

But thing is I usually work alone, so to up the stakes a bit more by inviting complete strangers (like you) to join me.

The basic idea is to have a comic that does not have a predefined storyline, but that branches out from a predefined first page. New alternate routes can be added from any page by any artist. The story will evolve organically.

Note: This is 'Unfamiliar Discipline', so I do not expect you have drawn a lot of comics before (but I'm also not excluding you if you happen to be experienced ^.-). I will spend the entire weekend on this, but you do not have to. Every page is appreciated.

If you think this sound interesting, post a reply to this thread. Further instructions will be provided.

Ops. Forgot a quite important 'un-' before 'comfort'. In other words, I agree with you; I'm just not that good with these keyboard things.

(edit(again): I should apparently avoid using written human language today)

(Edited 2 times)

Isn't "Public presentation" more or less the ultimate un-comfort almost every living person on this planet?

(edit: add the missing 'un-')
