Better late than never, lol, and here I come almost 2 weeks later...
Thanks for the clarification! I am looking forward to LE10

I believe you have a fair and valid point about "in a jam like this", cause it is just a simple, have-fun-making-things, but suppose I include iconography that I find appealing, but someone else feels that it's evil. At what level am I obligated to alter my art to accomodate one's sensibilites? Maybe the art I've created isn't for the person who is offended by it. I am not forcing them to engage with my artistic expressions, no matter how colorful. "Offensive" is entirely dependent upon the viewer. But if all games are political, to some degree, they are all philosophical as well.
Perhaps this is the 'wrong' forum for discussing these specific ideas, but I can't help but ask them when presented with the opportunity, because at the very least, maybe someone will engage in dialogue and be opened to a new perspective whilst helping me to understand theirs.
Ideally. Lol. I live in fantasy land... I like you, pedroMz. We are conversing. :D If you know of a better section to discuss these things, I would LOVE to be included.
Hello, I was reviewing the rules of your game jam and something that stuck out was rule #1.
You see, I live in the United States, where the only restriction to freedom of speech is that you can't directly incite violence towards anyone. As such, "Hate speech" is undefined and I have a hard time working around it, because anyone can consider any offensive utterance to be hateful.
Can you please provide us with some more concrete guidelines?
edit: I see someone else has been thwarted by this ill-defined concept.
Another question, sorry: you say in the description of the Jam
"You can use anything assets wise but don't upload the whole asset store. "
but then later in the rules section you state:
- No using stuff that other people made (stuff like emojis are still allowed)
I cant wrap my head around that one. Thank you! (BTW, this is NOT meant to be an attack on the host. I am seriously looking for clarity.)
I'm Sleepy Gary. 3 years ago, my (then) 5 year old son Stinky Boorito and I started a project about a man and his stegosaurus fighting bad guys called "Ike & Noonie". We used paper cutouts for the background elements as well as Ike and Noonie themselves. My son drew all the monsters and enemies, all of which were scanned and animated digitally. If I had realized there was a 2018 and 2019 jam, we would have joined those, too.
This year, we are making a Fighting/Street brawl superhero game (think Maximum Carnage) about a super hero who is/makes/projects(?) fire, tentatively called "Fire Man". (My son names these games.) We are going to be using clay for the characters, which I will then photograph and animate in the traditional style of stop motion, probably paper and other elements for the background, and maybe some toys for other elements in-game. We're hoping to have at least 1-3 levels complete by the end of the month, but we'll see...
Good luck, everyone! We look forward to viewing/playing your submissions!
Can I make a game that only follows a few of the guidelines? For instance, can I make a 1 room game with a character that doesn't leave, but interacts with other characters via electronic communications over the course of a day or 2?
Can you please explain "Don't be a bigot"?
I want to make a game about Drumpf and why he needs to be removed, but I feel like doing so would disqualify my game for bigotry. Can we get a little clarity, please? Are there any more guidelines so I can work safely within the framework of the rules?
oh laawdy! Dis iss wunderbar!
I gave up on my game yesterday.
Decided today that if I had until Feb 23, I would continue working on it some.
And when I logged in, I find this awesome news. SWEET! I'll probably finish my game, I guess.
Hi! I was wondering if, in a few days time, I uploaded a "beta" version of my game (just in case I get no further progress), could I upload a better version at a later point in time, before the jam finishes? I want to upload a completed game, but reupload a new version after I've added some polish and other quality of life improvements
I am working on a game for an event that started on October 1, and I am wondering if I could join this jam, and submit the game that was made under the same constraints as this jam, even though I started it for another?
hello! It's probably my dungball of a PC, but I can't get this to run. I keep getting a crash. Do you have any video of it in action? I would really like to at least see it being played. Thanks!
Lol, I really loved this it was pretty cool! I had 1 minor issue, though. Since I like to use WASD, and Ctrl was set up for fire...I had some mishaps where it would be ctrl+W/A/S/D, and activate a shortcut (usually trying to save the webpage! :P)
I really like the visuals. Are you going to expand it farther? BTW, did you notice that the hearts in your game are nearly identical in shape to the hearts in mine? hahahaha. the colors are different but they look like they were drawn by the same people! I know they can't be, because i did mine. keep up the good work!
oh crap! I forgot to add the music....And thanks, yeah we are going to develop it a bit further to at least get 3-5 levels for this installation. (Still can't believe I forgot to include the music...)
Hello! I've been trying to get your game to run, maybe it's just my comp, but it crashes everytime I start it. I double click and then I am told it crashed and I don't have the symbols necessary to see.
So here's my dilemma...
I downloaded this game from Itch.io a few days ago. I played it, loved it. Real good game, great.
Then tonight, I am going through my Steam Library, and i remember I have purchased it. With real money. If I can furnish evidence of my copy, how can I acquire a copy of the soundtrack?
