Thank you very much! What's the key you're missing, maybe i can nudge you in the right direction if you want?

Thanks a lot for your comment! I like that you waited until this spring to finally play it, i think spring is indeed a fitting time for some key-chasing in the countryside :D
The trees key is usually the one that some people have trouble finding, so i'm very glad you enjoyed it.
Have a great day!
Thank you very much for your kind words! If i may ask, which key was the last one you found?
I really appreciate your comments and your tip, it means a lot to me. Please don't be sorry about anything, you just made my day!
Have a lovely day yourself :)
Thank you! I'm really glad you liked it.
I had so much fun making the overworld map for the ending - and have you noticed that everytime you go on a walk, the return seems much much shorter?
Hi! I made a Bitsy game these last few days: it's called "A very blusterous day" and it's a short walk in the countryside, with a focus put on weather and ambience. I hope you'll enjoy it!
Feel free to give me feedback if you like, and have a nice play :)
I totally agree with evnh! If you feel comfortable with using Tabletop Simulator in your design process, feel free to use it. However, as one of the goals of the jam is to make games that play without a computer, it would be great if you could submit a print & play version of your game to the jam, or detail how to make the game at home for everybody (moreover, Tabletop Simulator is a paid software so as far as I know, people would have to buy it to play your game?).
No, there isn't a prize for the winner. The jam is just a way to dedicate some time to make something and share it with others, and get motivated by others' works during the process. There isn't even any voting happening at the end of the jam, just
- put your game online
- try the games of the other participants
- enjoy your time :)
Just so I can weigh the possibilities of having a prize for a possible future jam, what would you expect / why would you expect a prize exactly, if you don't mind telling me? I'm really just being curious :)
I like the idea of a group storytelling game very much! The themes are also really interesting, I'll look forward to what you make :D
I'm personnally thinking of a board game that takes place during several days, one round per day. I don't know how it will turn out yet but it should be fun, I guess?
Physical games can be a bit strange to think about when you're used to videogames. So this topic is for sharing resources, references of designers, games and articles on the matter - food for thought!
ON BOARD GAMES:
- Shut Up & Sit Down is a Youtube channel of people reviewing board games of all kinds. They talk about lots of different genres, so videos about games you don't know can be a source for inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyRhIGDUKdIOw07Pd8pHxCw
- Jenn Sandercock makes edible games, board games that are made of food (and you'll have to eat the pieces to play it). Her book is on Kickstart right now, plus one of her games is available for free: https://ediblegames.com/
ON FOLK GAMES:
- The List of traditional chidren's games on Wikipedia is a nice list of games you may have played when you were young. It links to the games' pages so you can learn everything about those games, and hopefully get inspired: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_traditional_children%27s_games
- In particular the article on Tag is really interesting, detailing many variants and letting you imagine other new versions of this classic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_(game)
- Bernie DeKoven was a designer and play theorist, who worked for many years and collected many games for everybody. He also was the man who made me discover folk games, and thus who inspired me to launch this jam. Dive deep in his website and read everything you can: https://www.deepfun.com/funny-games/
- Thryn Henderson wrote the 'Let's Play Outside' zine, which is a compilation of small outdoors games inspired by existing videogames: https://twitter.com/Thairyn/status/968173641170112514
Don't hesitate to share your own things and stuff you find interesting, I'll add them to the list :)
Thank you very much for your sweet comment, I'm glad you liked the game :D
Yes Kishoutenketsu in something I enjoy very much, and I've learned to notice it in many great things (animated films, games or else). It's always nice to know a new tool to analyze and make stuff!
