Can we start building/balancing the classes as soon as the votes clear, or do we need to wait for the official development window on September 16th?

Honestly, can't really stop you from getting started early if you want. I feel like since until all the characters are set you can't get too far ahead though.

In each reality, a group of four heroes, slightly different, but in many ways the same, rise to battle the fearsome Dragon.
Do we have to make heroes very similiar? I dont think I understand this part...
EDIT: Also the prize for participation is 5$ for deica, but what if Im not from countries that use this currency? Do I still et prize in $?

It's because of this rule:
  • Your first 3 heroes must be the classes determined by the hero polls. Your 4th hero can be any class you want. How you interpret these classes' abilities is up to you.
Basically every game submitted will have the same three classes, so the heroes "will be slightly different, but in many ways the same"

It's a coupon code for the Degica store where the currency is in dollars.

Hi! Is the template for MV already posted? Or is MV not allowed to participate after all?

So if I don't use plugins and just go with the default system but make it event based to do some cool stuff, is it going to be looked down as it is the base combat system - As in If I don't use like Visual Hp gauges will it be looked down on as it just has the sprites.

I think there is a ton of cool and clever stuff that can be done with zero plugins, personally.

Can text be used if I make a special timer that tracks how long you took to beat the boss?

  • Only one qualifying entry per person is allowed. - Does this mean as one person on the forums can a team work on this game jam
Also Is there any resoultion that it has to be in I was going to do 720p for the side view I see the template is using front view system figure we can change it as well.

Any view is fine, I just had to set it to something for the template.

If you want to work as a team, you can, I'm only counting whoever submits it though for "one entry per person", and also for awarding the prizes.

I'm entering! I'm even having a friend help me create sprites for the battlers. Mine's actually going to be a side-view, is that ok?

Yes, those kinds of text are fine. The only thing that is disallowed is dialogue and tutorial text. Indicator text for patterns and such is not a problem.

I have a question about the classes. So how much wiggle room do we have for flavoring the classes? Say I want to do a modern day setting for the dragon fight, is it ok if I have the Priest represents the Holy Champion and I go off from there? Or does it have to be hard core, sword & sorcery, fantasy class? Also I was a bit confused about the what a Witch class is suppose to be exactly? The twitter poll had Wizard and Witch as options but I wasn't exactly sure what the difference between the two are. Like in most mainstream fantasy media the only difference is that they're gender exclusive for whatever reason. So I wasn't sure if the poll creator had a different idea of the what the classes are or we were just voting for guy mage/girl mage.

PS. Sorry to add on, but currently the twitter poll isn't visible on twitter.

There is something super weird going on with the poll. I can see it when I am not logged in, but can't see it while logged in. People are somehow voting in it though, so it may be account specific.

As for the other parts: As long as the classes are named what they are named and it makes sense it's all good. A modern priest being a Holy Champion makes sense.. though I'd probably still give him some kind of physical presence and not just a holy caster.

On the subject of Wizard and Witch: eh, you can interpret it as you will, but personally, I wouldn't consider that the divide between the two. There can be female wizards and male witches.

The difference to me is Wizards study magic in a kind of scientific way. Witches do magic through kind of a more "folk" way.

I always smile to myself when I see someone do the "immediate halt and spin around" from forgetting something. I find it sort of endearing how we all do it without ever being taught to.
