If you like weird, exploration-based games and crunchy playstation-like graphics, you might like Smithee.

Yeah, if you check out my Itch profile you'll find my other games.

The only videos I know of the game were a couple of streams someone did of a bunch of different games, including Smithee.

Thank you!!

Thank you so much! Sorry for the late response.

Thanks!

It's wonderful! Thank you so much!!!

Fantastic game! The art is extremely well done with so much detail. Gonna have to read your devlog to see how you made all the it all. The dialogue, while great, had a few issues in places (mostly the color changes indicating who is talking  is sometimes missing ).

I had to restart because I was stuck after talking to everyone.

Thanks!

Thanks!

No ending, just sit and watch the rain.
Thanks!, It's really just the BitsyHD hack by VonBednar

Good game!
I think the piece was stronger because the song didn't autoplay; the use of the youtube link helped the piece lean more into the jam theme.

Also The Midnight is such a great band

Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed them both!

Thanks!

Wow! Thank you so much. 

Well done, a lovely Bitsy poem!

Fantastic work!

Thanks!! Glad you liked it!

Thanks!!

Oh no! But glad we realized the issue and I'll see what I can do to fix it

Thanks!

Thanks!

Thanks!

Really cool concept, this almost rhythm-based typing trainer centered around writing a paper or novel. the darker keys seemed like typos or something to be avoided. I wouldn't mind seeing where you take this if you decide to continue working on it.

Thank you for the comments. Hopefully I can fix the dialogue and clean up the graphics at some point.

It seems like they will post a tool that selects a random theme from the show right before the jam starts.

The podcast is from the people behind things like Car Boys and My Brother, My Brother, and Me and is about creating strange games based off of bad suggestions. Here are some links to familiarize yourself with the show:

This set is for more a natural, forest-y environment with some slightly medieval-style fantasy tiles. When made it I was thinking caves, dungeons, woods, etc etc.

What do you think this set could use?

Oh man, your video is amazing! Thank you for playing the game. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Let me know if you find any issues with the tiles (such as things not lining up, weird pixels, etc) or have any suggestions for improvements!

Oh wow! Thanks for the video. I hope you enjoyed it. I'll have to check out those other two games. Awesome channel by the way.

Hello, I'm thatguynm I work full time and make games in my spare time.

I wasn't part of the last jam, but I like the idea of trying something new and helping people out with their first game jam game. I'm not quite sure what I will do; either create something in Unity or try my hand at hand-drawn animation for games.

I love games and could probably find something worthwhile in most games. I like games that let players build something that is their own, whether that's a character, item, story or experience. I love games that tell an interesting story. Some of my favorites are Deus Ex, To The Moon, Saints Row 2-4, Antichamber, LOZ: A Link To The Past, Silent Hill, Flashback, Trap Gunner, Portal, the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, Way of The Samurai...

I have some experience with game development and game jams, in fact most of my games are from game jams. I use Gamemaker Studio for the most part, but I've been messing with Unity a bit as well. I also made some games in Twine. My work includes:

Mystery House (jam)

Ocean Drive (jam)

Water

Beetles Want The Book (jam)

Hostile Interview

Definitely passionate about making something interesting/different and storytelling. I'm not the best at either, but it's what drives me to keep making games.

Awesome game, I love the concept and themes you worked with. Your words paired with the vaudio-visual component make for a transfixing experience.

Wonderful Game. Such a great concept

I'm not a musician by any stretch of the imagination, but making crappy little tracks helps when I'm stuck in a creative slump. I haven't made anything in a while, and most of it comes from experimentation with various tools.

You can try my game out.

I agree, the animation is fluid and snappy, which works well with something focused on melee combat. Are those vector sprites? it looks like it'll be a ton of fun to play.

I love the art style! The star is very art deco.

Motivation is a hard thing to keep, especially the longer you're on a project. Sometimes you have to take a break and come back to a project with fresh eyes and mind. I feel like you could make something great out of this.

I love Open Game Art. It's a fantastic resource to have when creating games. It has helped me out with a few prototypes, which would have taken a bit longer otherwise. It is wonderful that we have a website like it, giving people a free source of assets to pull from when they need, no strings attached. After I used assets from Open Game Art, I uploaded something of mine (an early version of a 2d character template I use) to pay it forward.

Originality is getting harder to find, and there is nothing wrong with having things that you can reference, use, and work from without fear of the possible repercussions. Things like Open Game Art are a fantastic source that need to be bigger than they are now.

Ah, got ya.

Admittedly I wrote it in a bit of a hurry, so the grammar/phrasing might be off.
