If he accepts thin mints I'm going to have to remove him as a judge.

Thin mints are a trash cookie and I'm not afraid to say it.

Thin mints are literal garbage. I wouldn't eat them even if I had 200 million boxes of them.

Well, I probably won't be able to finish something in time - or it will be rubbish - but I'll give it a go. The mapping contest taught me a bit of time discipline so maybe I can whip myself into line. It's all good experience in any case so why not have a hack?!

How much in prizes? Your first post says $1k in a couple of places, but the thread title says $2k.

This, in the image we were trying to portray them reaching up for the grand prize. Which is $1k. Add together then 500 for 2nd, and 250 for 3rd and Fan Favorite, and it is $2k in total prizes :)

The timing couldn't be more perfect. I am already putting together my synopsis, and have a working frame.
Does rule 18 mean we cannot have parodies in our game?

This sounds exciting!

@Touchfuzzy Since Rule 7 specifically mentions "You may use resources sold through Komodo in the Degica Games Shop or via Steam", are we allowed to use assets from other stores (e.g., Itch.io or Japanese websites)? Given that the creators of the assets allow it in their terms of use, of course.

As long as the creators terms allow it, yes.

Mostly we would prefer people just work with their own original characters. If it would fall under being a legally distinct character from a real life person, you should be fine.

If it comes off as REALLY thinly veiled though I think we'd eye it suspiciously.

Yeah, I was just confused because the first post didn't make any mention of the other prizes. I didn't follow the link to the jam page.

Thank god that it is MZ only x.x I wouldn't have been able to resist otherwise xD

If I want to have our demo out at the end of the year I can't spent a month woth another game, though. Still a shame :( It's the second really cool event won't participate in, though I'd love too.

But I am sure we'll see a bunch of awesome game, so I am atill lookong forward to it.

My exact sentiments! I'm at a crucial point right now and summer could really make a difference with my progress so as much as I'd LOVE to i have to bow out of this game jam,shame as I have a REALLY interesting short story idea I'd love to get out of my system

I'm entering! I don't know how well I will be able to make a game in a month's time, but regardless of how well I do this is a good way to learn how to develop more concisely. Good luck to everyone else that entered as well! :D

I think I'll go for this one! I don't expect much, but at least I'll put some actual work in, right?

I love Thin Mints what is wrong with you.

Trying to make something amazing is the first step in making something amazing.

(also honestly I just hate chocolate mint. I like chocolate, I like mint, but I think the combination makes both worse than each individually would be).

Question are we allowed to do game thread as game in development for them in the RMweb forum @Touchfuzzy ?

Forum tip of the day ...
If you get a temporary suspension for being a jerk to people who are trying to help you, and arguing with mods and admins, don't go making new accounts. Chances are, if you p**s us off enough to suspend you for a week, we're not going to hesitate giving you a permanent ban when you give us a reason.

I'm so close to releasing my game on steam! :blush::blush::blush:
Us:
"This game is awesome! I wish there are more games like this in the future."
Also us:
"I hate how games stopped being original and start copying other successful games."
Should've done this a few days ago but...
