Hello everyone! Today I will start a contest called the 30 minute game jam.
Keep in mind that this game jam is NOT annual or anything. It's just one jam and done. That's it. So if anyone wants to make a second 30 Minute Game Jam, um, you don't have to credit me or even put this in.
Anyways, here's the info:
Starting date: TO BE VOTED ON
Ending date: TO BE VOTED ON
Theme: TO BE VOTED ON
Entries: You can find them below.
No NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content. This includes all things inappropriate. I won't list them in case someone flags this post, but you know what I'm talking about.
Be nice to everyone. Even though we will vote people's submissions to the contest, we have to keep them nice. And yes, you can call me a hypocrite. But trust me, I won't vote or submit. Heck, I won't even say anything about this. I promise.
You can work in teams of 3. One programmer, one artist, and one game submitter. Also the game submitter can choose its own role.
Yes, we will have time to hire people in teams.
You will have 30 minutes to make a game and submit it. You will have a 10 minute late-submission period that will not count for the final entries, only for the late entries. You will also have a 10 minute break to plan out your game. If anyone makes their games before I say "Start", then they will be disqualified.
Do not steal other people's work claiming it as your own. Snap! runs on a CC license and if someone copies someone else's project without changing, I WILL KNOW. You know what? Forget that. You can't copy anyone's submission and you can't change them either.
You can join anytime as long as the game jam hasn't started. The 10 minute break before the 30 minute competition COUNTS.
We can extend the time if necessary. The max time we can extend it is 1 hours, 30 minutes. No more than that.
All game jam entries MUST be original. That means that the game jam entries must not be premade or taken from Scratch via Snapinator.
We will vote on themes. The more the theme has been posted, the higher votes it gets. So it will be the theme. Also we will have to vote on the starting date and other stuff.
The contest hasn't started yet. Also I will make this a dropdown post so that you don't have to scroll past a billion lines full of submissions and the game's creators.
Again, the contest hasn't started yet.
This will be the place where you'd find out the results for the late entries.
The start date must not be more than next week. And yes, that means the competition might start during May.
Gather more judges because some game jam entries will probably be disguised. Trust levels aren't really high here because the mods banned us from sharing things like Email Addresses. So it's gonna be hard to tell if people are cheating or no.
