Yeah, team RED for the win!!!!! I also already verified, I'm not on call that weekend, so I should be able to dedicate a good amount of time to the thing. The hardest part for me will be figuring out the game idea once the theme is known.

That is always my issue too. I think I know what it is and have a good idea of what to do then it something different and I have know idea what to do with it.

And since I really have ZERO clue what it is(from my POV it could be TREXINACITY as easily as FLEXIBILITY or CREDIBILITY), I'm not spending time on coming up with an idea. I'm doing other stuff, like working on my audio system thingy, which should be either done, or just lacking docs(etc...) so it should be jam usable.

honestly, I was going to suggest this end up in it's own locked topic that one person can update. OR have each team be given their own topic to spew in.

Also offended Im not on it! Though I'm not so sure now. My buddies are split!

that's however a question: If it's two words is one of the question marks a space/divider or will it just magically appear when appropriate?

I see we've got a triple terror team in the Red Gang! :eek: Wow!

So this is war, is it? Ok, Red Gang, I've got a triple terror for you.
Face my Triple Lemon Dance

How's that? Bet you're shaking in your boots that you're not even wearing now, ha!

_

BTW, Yellows (or whoever): Do you have FL Studio and want to boost your musical genius via this lemon dancing to your jams while jamming the jam?
HERE are the files (13.8 kb) to make that happen! Just add Fruity Dance to your project and click the folder icon to load the lemon in. :)

Ah crap, I was looking into making my first ever attempt at 3D. Seeing as I barely understand how to move my cube around I'd say it might be a bad idea for this jam. Maybe I could get away with mixing 3D with 2D just a little, like just for the menu or something with low interactivity... Found a new voxel modeling tool that I quite fancy haha

I'd like to point out that every winner of the jam from 31-39 was presented in 2D, the last 3D winner was in GMC Jam 30 iirc.

So while I am sure we will see some great 3D entries this jam, 3D graphics alone are not the silver bullet they perhaps used to be!

I'll speak to Screens and say that while I had a lot of fun making it work in 3D, it probably would've been a stronger title if I stuck to 2D and spent the time working on the 3D aspect on polish or other fancier mechanics instead.

Not to say you can't have a jam winner in 3D after all these years! I do feel that Screens excelled for reasons other than its dimensionality.

Has there been an entry with pre-rendered 3d models for sprites before? And did it do normal mapping for lights? I may very well be doing that. I haven't decided whether to do that(my fastest art pipeline), or try to force myself to learn pixel art.

I will make the commitment now.

I will play every single jam game on live streams
If I've done my math correctly and I got D's in math, theres 61 people saying they will join, im assuming a few will drop out due to issues of personal events or lack of interest to peruse
So best case scenario im looking at 50 games, If i do 20 games a stream I get 3 streams
but lets say the world has terrible RNG and theres 61+ games, then I will continue to do 20 a stream and thus it will be 3 streams
My formula is to take E = enteries, G = gamesperstream, S = streams
S = E/G

Hey all, I am wanting to participate solo but my strong suits are Animation and Audio. I am familiar with a game engine posted and was wondering if I could use it/are others ok with that?
If by game engine, you mean something that isn't GM, then no...it IS the GMC JAM after all.

If you mean an asset or something pre-made that works with GMS, like pre-made code to handle 3d in GM or something, then that's is acceptable as long as you document what you did and put it in the credits/readme of you Jam entry.
