Hello all!

I hope everyone is getting what they were wanting out of this jam! It has been doing better numbers than I ever expected and the projects that I have played so far have been excellent!

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up; the intention was always to have the jam end at the beginning of the Video Games as Punk Rock (Presented by Amazon) talk but the date wasn't up when I started this jam. Well, the date is now up so I've adjusted the date to match up with that time. However, if you can't finish it before this new end time, just let me know and I can give you a submission link when your project is done. Just reach out to me on Twitter @R25th or email me at www.r25th@gmail.com and I'll let you in. Also, it can be any amount of time after the end time; I do not care. Send it to me October and I'll still let you in

Can't wait to see what else you all have ready!

Hello again!

There's no bad blood and I understand that it was an easily misunderstood joke. However, the optics of having a thread "accusing" me of not liking a particular ethnic group isn't great so I will be archiving/hiding this thread at the end of the day. I hope you understand. I will be taking your advise and start a thread to help drive engagement.

Thank you for your concern and I hope you enjoy the jam!!

Hello! R25th here, the creator of this jam and the writer of the screed that you are referring to. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are acting in good faith and that this is a simple misunderstanding.

I was not talking about the Polish people. I was talking about “polish” (note the lack of capitalization). In game development, polish is used to talk about the process of slowly going over the entire game, making minute changes in order to improve overall game feel. I personally view it as purposefully removing the jagged edges a project gets when made quickly and with emotion. This is why I included it in the list of other game dev stuff to say “Fuck” to (“juice”, game design, etc.). I want projects created in this jam to be very human, created from an emotional place, and polishing the edges out, I feel, removes what should make these projects beautiful. People make games and I want that to shine through here.

So, I have absolutely nothing against the Polish people, rather a game dev concept that I don't think meshes well with what I want produced by this jam (homographs are fun!).

Oh wow. This is fantastic and exactly what I was hoping would come out of this jam. 

FUCK JEFF BEZOS

THANK YOU!!! I'm trying my hardest to make sure everyone knows about and sees these very good boys!

Thank you!!!! The playlist was actually one of the first things I did. Also, thank you so much for throwing a jam that gave me the opportunity to try out Bitsy!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

This and my LED-based rhythm game, Ossia Glow, are currently being shown in Lexington, KY at The Living Arts and Science Center as a part of the Rules and Play exhibition until the end of August. Both will also be shown at Bit Bash Fabicade in Chicago on Sept. 14th!!!
