Another page, another teams update.

Also, for some reason I missed @Fernando Gonzalez and @Roa allegiance to Team Yellow.
For the former, it might be because I took the banana-taped-to-wall picture to be hype post rather than allegiance declaration. I dunno, somehow I got the impression Fernando Gonzalez already pledged the allegiance before, but apparently didn't.
For the latter, it might be because the "yellow" was written with white letters rather than yellow in this post.

I apologise for overlooking these posts. Hopefully there aren't any other posts I missed. ^^'

With that, the team balances are 30/27/30. So Team Red hadn't overtaken Team Yellow yet, after all.

Code:
Red                     Green                   Yellow
---                     -----                   ------

This is technically true...but I can't do anything about the results for a few days, so hype is all I can do for now....don't judge. You just jelly of the RED HYPE! :p
I'm not jelly, as I know red will be very well represented in the jam... as team yellow will create rivers with the blood of its opponents!
Ok, a bit too drastic there

No worries on being too dramatic...if I can have fun hyping this stuff, it's only fair that you can too. RED always treats enemies with deserved honor, dishonor leads to defeat! (queue epic movie track)

In a break with tradition (and because a decent number of you keep PMing me with the correct theme and I'm pretty sure loads of you have spilt the beans to your own gangs) I am going to announce the theme NOW!

It's nearly time... on February 25th get ready... for... ONE. BIG. PARTY!



Pls do not start your entries til the jam opens, thx
Time to make an RPG with every GMCer being a party member

Why not create just one uber-entry then?? Also, my idea is different ahah

Because if that UBER entry doesn't win, Yellow Team is toast(I mean they already are :) but still....). I agree it's quality over quantity, but there has to be a LITTLE quantity.

And my idea is different too. Wile brainstorming I was messing with definitions of the word 'PARTY.'

1. The celebration thing
2. The political thing
3. The "group" of like action'ed individual(like military landing party, or as in RPG)
4. Believe it or not, a group of the specific bird called Jay is considered a "Party."

I almost thought on that last one but I was kinda afraid I would lose points on use of theme because of it.

Well, for my idea I'm specifically focusing on the "dinner party" version of the theme.... working on some concept art right now because I have nothing better to do with my free time (I'm hyped for the Jam!)

I'm not doing any actual art asset ahead of time, except maybe something boilerplate like a pre-created .blend file for the rendering(but no actual models yet, that's cheating for sure).

That's why I'm doing concept art (i.e. I'm just painting stuff on paint.net with my drawing tablet, actual art will be made in aseprite)

I get it. In my case I can't draw for squat(which is why I'm doing pre-render 3d in the first place). So the idea of me doing concept art is pretty laughable :)
Ohh did I give the impression that I can actually draw? 😂 gonna try creating all of the assets for my submission myself but that means the overall quality will likely be on the lower side of the ranking

If your concepts are useable for anything(and they must be or you probably wouldn't be doing them), you can draw better than I can. The one thing I find neat is doing random strokes in Alchemy. That program was never fleshed out and finished but you can get some neat stuff out of it, especially if you are going for something alien.

I, too, usually spend the first day trying to come up with a decent game idea. It's fun to get to make plans in advance this time.

Huh theme is already there? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a gamejam a bit?
Anyway, what team has the lowest members right now? Want to join that one if I'm going to participate haha

After spaces were revealed, the theme was already guessed so much that keeping it secret kinda lost the point.

I wish I could welcome you in Team Red, but right at the moment the team with lowest members count is GREEN (with 28 members at the moment, including Bearman who recently joined).
(of course, it's not too late to change your mind *whistling*)

Hey, I was right! Definitely gonna try to join this one, as the parts for my computer are finally coming in, and it should be completed before the Jam starts, so allow me to preemptively align myself with GREEN TEAM!
I guess I can make a prototype in PICO-8 in the meantime. XD
You could implement a PICO-8 emulator in Game Maker and then entries are eligible both in GMC Jams and PICO-8 jams?

As ever the GMC Jam is more relaxed than other jams, and very much operating on an "honor" / "honesty" system.

Even when the theme has been kept to the last minute in the past there have been entries that look suspiciously like they were started early & had the theme rammed in later. I don't think it has a huge impact on the final result in any case :)
