Someone make this happen :D

I was looking at that compohub.net for a jam I could use pico8 but surprisingly there is nothing left this year (except a game a month but an entire month is too long for me to participate).

P#15186 2015-10-09 12:16 ( Edited 2015-11-13 19:51)

I got it!
Let's do it on the week of Thanksgiving (22nd-28th)!
Question is, though: Who's going to announce the Theme? (I nominate Zep!)
(Also, I noticed your avatar from the Wizard on NES, sweet!)

P#15188 2015-10-09 12:29 ( Edited 2015-10-09 16:29)

That's a good time frame.

Yeah, the avatar is from mega drive version of Immortal though. Apparently it was originally on an amiga system or something. I LOVED that game.

do we prefix cartrages/forumpost with [picojam] if we submit them or somthing, maybe add a number if we want to do this again

(oh hi skyrunner65, its a small world, wel for mirco console's atleast :D)

@adekto Oh hey! I guess that's true then...
Also, we'll probably use a tag.

@Diego 'Twas only a guess...

P#15208 2015-10-09 19:08 ( Edited 2015-10-09 23:08)

I'd be up for a jam!

P#15227 2015-10-10 13:08 ( Edited 2015-10-10 17:08)

I'm in :)

P#15242 2015-10-10 18:06 ( Edited 2015-10-10 22:06)

Me too! I'd also be happy to help with theme announcing or any other formalities.

I imagined jams could take place in Collaboration with a tag for each jam to group them, but that can evolve as needed.

Any proposals for a format? LD48-style theme voting? Or just leave it to a mysterious behind-the-curtain theme dictator?

P#15662 2015-10-20 20:04 ( Edited 2015-10-21 00:04)

For interest sake, itch.io has a jam host platform all tied up and simple. I'd recommend it for hosting entries and managing things.

P#15663 2015-10-20 20:07 ( Edited 2015-10-21 00:07)

I think you should just announce it, zep.

Then if there's a big turnout, the next one could be voted upon.

P#15664 2015-10-20 20:09 ( Edited 2015-10-21 00:09)

I'd prefer theme voting, but honestly, what works works.

P#15665 2015-10-20 20:18 ( Edited 2015-10-21 00:18)

pico jam yes please

P#15667 2015-10-20 20:36 ( Edited 2015-10-21 00:36)

itch.io is a great service to use if you're really interested: http://itch.io/jams/new

P#15672 2015-10-21 03:37 ( Edited 2015-10-21 07:37)

I will try to do it, depending of the date.
Itchio seems to be the best option. ( really easy to set up).

Would be good to vote for a Theme, like in the old good experimental game jam time.

P#15674 2015-10-21 05:02 ( Edited 2015-10-21 09:02)

A Pico jam would be very cool !

P#15680 2015-10-21 08:50 ( Edited 2015-10-21 12:50)

Yes so much!

About the voting, I'm ok with whatever method you want.

P#15681 2015-10-21 10:55 ( Edited 2015-10-21 14:55)

I'm down to jam for sure.

P#15684 2015-10-21 12:58 ( Edited 2015-10-21 16:58)

They held a pico-8 workshop and jam at Bento Miso in Toronto recently, seems like it went pretty well.

Does anyone have plans to team up?

My vote goes to a secret dictator theme from Zep.

P#15699 2015-10-21 14:10 ( Edited 2015-10-21 18:10)

yaay it's happening! My suggested guideline for theme is to not be too contextual, but something that limits what could be done mechanically. Like "one button" or "slow paced" etc. But I'm happy with anything that lets us jam =)

P#15705 2015-10-21 18:44 ( Edited 2015-10-21 22:44)

LD-48 generates so many jam theme ideas, it's as if we could just pick one randomly from past years' finalists. Would that meet our needs / keep it simple?

P#15709 2015-10-22 03:08 ( Edited 2015-10-22 07:08)

is this happening or not? whats the theme?

P#15775 2015-10-24 10:37 ( Edited 2015-10-24 14:37)

Did this happen?

P#15844 2015-10-25 18:12 ( Edited 2015-10-25 22:12)

I'm pretty sure it's still being planned out.
All of the jam games in the forums right now are from 0h game jam.
They might be talking about it on IRC, but I don't frequent it so I don't know.

P#15845 2015-10-25 18:14 ( Edited 2015-10-25 22:14)

Ah okay thanks. Maybe I will have to drop into the IRC at some point.

P#15895 2015-10-27 05:17 ( Edited 2015-10-27 09:17)

Alright, super. If there are no objections in the next couple of days, I'll post an invite for the week of November 22nd-28th and will procure a theme and format to be posted at the start of the jam (You can trust me. strokes white cat).

P#15919 2015-10-27 15:33 ( Edited 2015-10-27 19:33)

Sounds good to me! I'll try not to get too stuck into Fallout 4 by then.

P#15920 2015-10-27 16:00 ( Edited 2015-10-27 20:00)

Cool ! :)

P#15925 2015-10-27 17:32 ( Edited 2015-10-27 21:32)

Great! =D

P#15929 2015-10-27 18:54 ( Edited 2015-10-27 22:54)

Sounds great!
