If you'd like to take part in P8JAM2, please select one or more themes by clicking on the PICO-8 star next to it (you need to be logged in). You can change it anytime before the 24h voting phase ends -- at 00:00 PST on Saturday the 21st. Check out the jam thread for more details.
Edit: times's up! The winning theme is Chain Reaction. You have 9 days! Good luck!
Ah... today I learned the difference between PST and PT. Typing "PST Time now" into google gives PT (i.e. the currently active pacific time which is now PDT).
So yes, the voting started 1h early! But the Jam will be on schedule -- beginning and ending at 00:00 PST (01:00 PDT / PT)
Thanks for the answer. You may have to hide the star and the heart in the bbs topics list for this topic. When used, they erased my vote. I voted "chain reaction" then got "Useless PowerUp" and "Blob". I have to remove the heart and the star and vote again to get my choice back.
Have a good day/night (?)
In France, it's 5 to 10am
Who came up with those themes? I really wonder why most jams have so boring, featureless themes. This feels like kindergarten. Most of them are not even themes but only buzzwords. You can not make a story out of any of those so I guess I will skip this jam again after "rain" though I was really motivated this time.
@movAX13h the themes aren't here to tell you what game to make. They're just a spark, a nucleation point for your own game ideas to crystallize around. One of the great things about these jams is seeing how different everyone's creations are despite a central theme.
movAX13h: They're so broad and generic on purpose. The idea is more that the theme is there to give you something to start with if you can't come up with something out of nowhere.
Honestly, even if whatever theme happens is anti-inspiring to you, you should hang out and build an unrelated game in that timeframe anyway, we're all in it for fun anyway!
Sadly not my topic - I had ideas for each topic, but not for this one and it didn't get any better. But I see a lot of puzzle games comencing ;).
I think I'll use the time to continue with Tower of Rhavenna to get it out of the door finally.
