Love it. Simply and fun

You got it. Platformers are the easiest (and laziest) option, and it is quite frustrating to see the large gamejams end up with an ocean of platformers.

Just kidding, make whatever game you want.

For me throwback means revisiting some of the quirky old innovative DOS games that I used to play as a kid.
There were very few platformers then.

Neat game!

Great game, loved the poo and the crocodile :)

This game was fun, we liked chopping through everything and we found the viking sword eventually.

Great work, love the artwork!

This game is really cool and I love the artwork.

Awesome work Boudi! (And good work dad too ;)

Love it!

Is it me or this game really buggy?

Lovely game, really like the concept, but...nothing to do with #loadingjam.

doodling, contemplating how to animate the water and what gameplay to add...and I need to shift that pier.

Surprisingly, the octopus got a lot of different interpretations, best one was:
CHTULHU! (I am so using that :)

The dancer and the bridge also confused a lot of people - seem to both have large variation in depiction.

The eggplant has a VERY specific meaning, but...it is only used in that context in the US.  It's just a plain ol' veggie for the rest of the world.
So, since I am not US based, I did not get any rude suggestions for that one :D

"The GDD doesn't make much sense to me"
I've shown it to a bunch of people and got swamped with ideas. People have so many different interpretations, it's awesome. Love it.

I wanted to print the design document so that I could show my kids...and the no matter what I tried, the emojis were rendered in black and white.

So if you want to print the document, here's an image of two slapped together screenshots from my phone, with all the emojis in colour.

Better yet:
Game assets filtered by the 'visual novel' tag :P

(Edited 1 time)

Opengameart.org has a tonne of free to use assets as well, including SFX and music.

Check the license, you will most likely have to credit the artist in your game or on your gamepage.

A quick search found these:
anime portraits

More portraits


rainy street

mixed backgrounds

4 Visual Novel Style backgrounds

Small set

Yeah, I had planned to do something with the two different currencies.
Didn't quite work out, might fix that up later.

If you need grey, you'll have to use dithering. I created a small checkerboard b&w tile and used that to create a grey background.
The dithering will create visible patterns in the grey and might look a bit odd when webpage is zoomed (on my browser game)

That will work just fine. All my games on itch.io are html5, although I haven't used jquery in years :)

Just make sure your main page is called index.html, zip it up with all your js code and you should be fine.

This is neat. I like it. Harder than it looks too. Good artwork as well!

Great artwork!

Love the pixelart. Weird game though :)

That is a lovely game :) I enjoyed that very much.

No worries about the test, and re-purposing the dare jam is a good idea. Ensures there is no confusion.
