This game was delightful! It's so nice to see asexual representation, especially in this kind of game. I enjoyed it a lot, and look forward to all your future projects <3

This is just delightful!! :)

Huh, that's weird...I never saw this problem myself, you're meant to be able to press any key and then it takes you to the start of the game. I'll look into it, thanks for letting me know.

Thanks! This is a really good idea, I appreciate it! I'll add something in the next update :)

Haha, actually I think that might be the default message in the program. BUT I love that you tried it, and now I want to add my own message for trying to eat anything :p

This is so charming!!! Thankyou for sharing <3

This is beautiful, thankyou for sharing <3

Relaxing Jam community · Created a new topic Resources

Here are some resources for creating games. Feel free to reply with more suggestions or offers to contribute, and I'll update the list accordingly.

Note: These are just suggestions to help you out. Don't feel like you're required to use any of the following.

Sortingh.at is a great site if you want to get into game development, but have no idea where to start. It gives suggestions for game making programs, as well as other resources such as art and sound assets. I strongly recommend looking at it before you start.

Game Making Programs:

These are programs for making the actual game. Programs I've marked with "(free)" are totally free, while others cost money for the full versions (but have free versions available).

  • Twine (free) - A text-based program, and a great way for beginners to start creating interactive stories and games. Simple to learn, especially with a tutorial. Note that version 1.4.2 is way easier to use than version 2.0.11, especially if you want to add pictures or anything like that. This is what I used to make Clowning Around and Sacrifice.
  • Inform 7 (free) - Another text-based program, and a little more complicated and versatile than Twine. It has in-built tutorials, but I also found these ones really handy. This is what I used to make Impetum Maleficus and Endless Sands.
  • GameMaker: Studio - Great for making 2D games, GM:S uses its own system that requires little to no coding knowledge to use. There are plenty of tutorials on the website. This is what I used to make Spirit Smooches.
  • Unity - I have very limited experience with Unity, it seems very complicated but extremely versatile. If you want to make a 3D game, Unity is probably the way to go!
  • Construct 2 - I haven't personally used Construct 2, but I gather it is similar to GameMaker: Studio in many ways.
  • RPG Maker - I also haven't used RPG Maker, but it seems like a good way to make games without having to worry so much about art and sound assets (since it comes with a bunch, and more are available on the website).
  • Adventure Game Studio (free) - Again, I've never used this program, but it seems like a good option for creating point-and-click adventure games. As an added bonus, it's completely free!
  • Clickteam Fusion 2.5 - Once again, I've never used this one before. But I've heard good things about it!
  • The Godot Engine (free) - I've never used it, but it seems to have a great toolset. It's open source too, so there are plenty of extra features, and with a little know-how you can add more.
  • Superpowers (free) - Another open source program that is apparently easy to get started with, and allows your game to be played in a browser.
  • Ren'Py (free) - A tool that's really useful for making visual novels, or similar types of games.
  • GDevelop (free) - An open source and cross-platform program for game making, that apparently requires no programming knowledge to use.
  • Bitsy Editor (free) - Very simple, but very cool!

Art Assets:

Unless otherwise noted, these assets are royalty-free. However, before using art assets in your game, make sure to check the sites for the correct way to credit the artists.

  • Itch.io - There are a LOT of assets here, definitely worth a look. Some are free, some aren't.
  • Open Game Art - Lots of neat art, particularly for low-graphics games.

Sound Assets:

As above, these assets are royalty-free, but most must be credited correctly.

  • Free FX Samples - A zip file my Sound Design tutor gave the class, which I'm hosting on my Google Drive (just click "Download" in the top right). No need to credit, these are stock! The file types are weird, but they open in audio editing programs such as Audacity no problem.
  • Incompetech - Lots of great music for various themes.
  • MusicRadar  - The general site is aimed at musicians, but that link will take you to a big list of royalty-free resources. They're not all winners, but some are excellent!

This is delightful!

That seems to be all sorted now. Thankyou!! <3

This looks great, and I'm glad it has been released!

It looks like when the game was released it also removed access to the pre-order content. I could see it before, but not anymore and I hadn't downloaded it yet.

This isn't a huge deal and there's no hurry or anything, just thought you should be aware :)

This is delightful, and I can see it being really useful! Thankyou :)

Hello friends. I've set up a Discord group for this game jam, and any future jam I run.

I recommend joining it, especially if you want to find people to collaborate with for this project.

Awwwwwww heck yes!!!

This is great! Hit me right in the emotions too, well done :)

This is really neat! I love the mechanic that as you lose health, your attack power goes down too.

I couldn't kill those big monsters that keep spawning little skulls as I shoot them. Is there a way?

This is really cool! And medically accurate, I'm sure.

Short and sweet. This was beautiful! Thankyou for submitting :)

This was very cool! I especially loved playing from the point of view of something so small, that was a nice change!

Hey, thanks!!!

Zvonimir answered perfectly, thanks!

Also keep in mind that if you are worried about not having time to do a game, any submission is fine, whether or not it's complete. A game is cool, but image or sound resources, a piece of writing, even just a game design document are totally fine! :) <3

Note that version 1.4.2 is way easier to use than version 2.0.11, especially if you want to add pictures or anything like that. This is what I used to make Clowning Around.
  • Inform 7 (free) - Another text-based program, and a little more complicated and versatile than Twine. It has in-built tutorials, but I also found these ones really handy. This is what I used to make Impetum Maleficus and Endless Sands.
  • GameMaker: Studio - Great for making 2D games, GM:S uses its own system that requires little to no coding knowledge to use. There are plenty of tutorials on the website. This is what I used to make Spirit Smooches.
  • Unity - I have very limited experience with Unity, it seems very complicated but extremely versatile. If you want to make a 3D game, Unity is probably the way to go!
  • Construct 2 - I haven't personally used Construct 2, but I gather it is similar to GameMaker: Studio in many ways.
  • RPG Maker - I also haven't used RPG Maker, but it seems like a good way to make games without having to worry so much about art and sound assets (since it comes with a bunch, and more are available on the website).
  • Adventure Game Studio (free) - Again, I've never used this program, but it seems like a good option for creating point-and-click adventure games. As an added bonus, it's completely free!
  • Clickteam Fusion 2.5 - Once again, I've never used this one before. But I've heard good things about it!
  • The Godot Engine (free) - I've never used it, but it seems to have a great toolset. It's open source too, so there are plenty of extra features, and with a little know-how you can add more.
  • Superpowers (free) - Another open source program that is apparently easy to get started with, and allows your game to be played in a browser.
  • Ren'Py (free) - A tool that's really useful for making visual novels, or similar types of games.

Art Assets:

Unless otherwise noted, these assets are royalty-free. However, before using art assets in your game, make sure to check the sites for the correct way to credit the artists.

  • Itch.io - There are a LOT of assets here, definitely worth a look. Some are free, some aren't.
  • Open Game Art - Lots of neat art, particularly for low-graphics games.

Music Assets:

As above, these assets are royalty-free, but must be credited correctly.

Oh geez, yeah. Real life got in the way and that moved pretty low on my priority list. But I haven't forgotten about it!

Thankyou! Yeah, that's the only ending so far, but I may update it in the future!

Thankyou! I hope you liked it :)

This looks very cool!

Feel free to submit an unfinished project if you like. Once you've made a submission, you can edit and update it as much as you like, even after the deadline.
