What the sam-hill is this now?
It's an event that will run for two days. Count 'em! Two whole days~ Whoop!

Right, yeah, got that part. What are we supposed to do for it, though?
Oh, you know~ Something.

What kind of something?!
Anything game related at all. It's basically an event to motivate people to get their arses into warp-drive and do something game related.

Okay, so... what? Do we just do stuff?
Well, I guess in the most general form. Let's get some details up in hayah~

You take two consecutive days.
You make a push to do as much game making as you can in those two days.
At the end you post up what you did as a report.

Now, it doesn't matter what you do as long as it's part of game creation in some way.
You have commissions you need to do? That's fine.
You want to make a 2-day game? That's A-okay!
You want to work on your current game? Perfectly oki-doki.
You want to do some reviews or LP/LTs? Sure, go ahead.
You want to frolic in the snow/melt in the sun and mess around doing nothing? No! > :|

Okay then... so when does this start? And how do I get in on the action?
Tomorrow it begins. That is, 14th of January.

Time zones don't matter - choose a time, write it down and start. Stop when you reach that time at the end of the two days, then write up your report in this topic.

So... this is a thing now?
I may consider making this randomly permanent depending on how many people like the idea.

But this came out of nowhere! I don't have time and there's other things I have to do and-
Yes, it's short notice and I know people are busy. That's where the challenge comes in. Finding time, working around schedules and getting something done - even if it's a map or two. Anything. Something. That's the aim of this small event.

Is this an official site event?

Not as yet. It's just a friendly little thang for those who are bored or want a challenge to jump in on.

So, get ready guys.
 

Tomorrow we challenge ourselves!

And you've chosen 2 days when I probably won't even have time for breathing because of stuff at work!

But if there's a repeat, I'm up for it.

I love it how this forum always seems to know when I'm about to slack off because of life. xD First, the art challenges, now this. Perfect timing.

I don't really have time during the week, but whatever, there's always a map to be squeezed in. ò.o Or so I hope.

Perfect! I just started a full-time job today. Exhausted this afternoon, and it's only going to get worse for the rest of the week. But I NEED to spend my afternoons continuing my game if I ever want to see the back of it. So this is just the butt-kick I need to get my work/gamedev co-routine off to a good start.

So unlike everyone else... I've actually been obsessively working on my game for the last two weeks and am in a position to do this no problem. (I only work part-time during the hours my kid is in school, but with her arm still in a cast right now she's not up for doing much at the moment leaving me with a lot more free-time than usual). Of course that kind of means I'm counter to the point of this, as I would probably be working a lot on my game regardless, but either way I'll participate.

@Shaz: congrats or condolences on your new job, depending on the situation involved.

Cool, I was already planning on spending the next couple of days being a work horse. I accept this challenge.

A game created in two days?

I admit that I'm tempted, you created Seer Deel in only one day (if I remember right).

I can't promise anything but I will think about it.

This is great, and the last 2 days I already did the full line-art for my annoying enormous cast, and now I have even more motivation for coloring them and doing some commissions. Lots of people start college this week though, and I'm one of them, so I might only make a small something happen though :p

A small something is better then nothing...

Perfect, a nice challenge to push me to do more work! Need to make up for my slack the past few days, haha.

I like this!  I probably won't get a lot done since I've got a ton of errands today and I teach tomorrow.  But it will give me a push to be a bit more focused and utilize my time well.  (Instead of, oh, getting distracted by message boards and such. Ahem.)  I think I am going to start by taking pen to paper and making a list of what I want to accomplish.

COME AT ME BRO!

In layman's terms, this means "I accept your challenge". I'll prolly get a map or two done, but not a demo. Sad face.

I might finish a map in this time, do we just post it in the thread when we are finished?

My report will be very short :) But it still means I got more done than I would have otherwise :D

This forum is a great source of procrastination for me.
Today I read "The mouth speaks what the heart is full of." Simple, and reminds me I have a ton of work to do.
Why are cats so darn cute when their tongues are sticking out? If I did that, it wouldn't have the same effect.
The joy when you see a notification, the down when it's just a unnecessary quote of one of your posts again.
