Gonna have a hard time to fit pancake into that, even if you spell it badly.

Edit: gonna take one final guess that the theme actually is pandemic treature. The only other option would be pathetic, but I think that's less likely. Pathetic treasure could be interesting. I'm going to have to think about these to come up with something fun...

Pathetic creature! There is no way its pandemic. To much uproar about it I think. I hope anyway. Pathetic creature has a lot of variety and you can do alot with it! I actually might be able to enter this one with plenty of time since my work just got shut down for covid. Sucks for money, great for gamedev! Looking forward to it!

20 hours to go, community! Already started my video dev log introduction speech. Now I only need a training montage with a nice rock background music and a motivational speech to close it up.
 
So many people flaking about the word pandemic. I've got a pretty funny comedy idea if it is and I wanna put a funny spin on it! xD

I'm hoping for PATHETIC CREATURE, because it would be perfect for nuts goner characters. 🤪

If that's the theme, I foresee 95% chaotic fun and 5% ocean-deep depression... Nice ~

Well, I'm in!
Good Luck everyone!
(Also a question here: where should the games be uploaded? Wherever, as long as there is a link in the Made with GameMaker? Or should they be uploaded somewhere in particular?)

You can upload your game anywhere, but you also need to make sure the link is publicly available for everyone (there have been cases of people posting their game to itch.io, only to later find out the game didn't make it into the ZIP because the itch.io page wasn't published).

You must post a link to the game somewhere in the Games Topic post; the Games Topic will be created soon, and will be open once the theme is revealed.
You can browse through the GMC Jam forums to see previous game topics. Here is the one for the previous Jam.

As @Alice said, entries should be posted in the games topic, the one for this jam is here: https://forum.yoyogames.com/index.php?threads/the-gmc-jam-39-games-topic-open-soon.81247/
It will open in ~40mins.

As Alice also said, a lot of people use https://itch.io/ to host their games. If you do so, just remember to set the page to public before you post your link in the jam topic!

Okay I have a weird issue that might kill my jam early.
In the start of my project, I decided I wanted to try something risky so I used "save as" to save the project as a new file before continuing. Then I worked on it for 5 hours since it turned out to work just fine. When I then messed something up a little I decided to open the old project to see how it was originally coded. That was a bad idea, now I can no longer access my new project.
The folder is there, and all the new sprites and codes and scripts are in it , but when I open it it looks just like the original save with none of the content seen in the project's folder visible in the engine (1.4).

Any ideas?

Its loading the old project, just go to load project and file path to the location of the new project with the assets

I'm in the new project's folder, double-clicking the new project's GameMaker File, and it opens the old project. Same if I open the file from game maker's "load project" function.
Also, all backups seem to be completely blank...

If I can set up a new project file which reads all the content within the project folder instead of somewhere else, that would work too.

Okay, so edit:
The new game's folder didn't quite have what I thought it had. All new objects and codes are there, but all old objects where codes have been rewritten (which are most) have been replaced with how they looked like in the beginning. I managed to import all assets into a new game, but the lost code might just be too much for me, having had little time to begin with. I'll see if I can get around to rewrite all of it another day but it was so many hours of full focus effort 🙃

I've been sick the entire day (food poisoning? weather-induced migraine?) and only barely gotten back on my feet, so I'm going into this at the maximal possible energy levels. Woo.
 
Excited to see what you guys come up with! Came here and realized ghandpivot is also using forward/inverse kinematics - it looks great! I used to be active on the legacy forum under shadow gamer, glad to see a lot of old faces!

@GameDevDan if I'm a member of a 4-person team (say, programming x 2, audio and art) that generally prefers to work as a complete team, is there any way for us to participate - like a handicap or something? Asking for a friends. 😅
