    Now what would "Two sides of the same coin" mean anyway?

    Day and night, chaos and order, male and female, mechanical and organic (ala cyborg), lots of ways to express duality within a single object or character. You could even take it literally with a coin flipping physics thing.

    Last time I tried bangers and mash, I found it easier if they were on the same side of the plate. :)

    So if i'm understanding this correctly, your game title has to be 26 letters? That's it?


    EDIT: No wait that doesn't make sense

    Based on the current spacing:

    Code:
    D O O M S A Y E R _ O R A T E S _ T O M B S T O N E
    
    T R O U S E R E D _ O I N T E D _ H O M O P H O B E

    I'll add a steam key to my game Skein as a community prize for first place and for the game that I liked best (if different to the game that wins). :)

    YoYo Games have kindly offered a Goody Bag to the person that takes 13th place! Unlucky for some but not for the person that gets it!

    Hello, despite sleep deprivation, I am alive and willing to revive my account to Jam for a weekend :D

    I swear I'll try to submit something this time instead of disappearing for 9 months

    EDIT: oh god what is that emote [​IMG]

    I'm too used to Twitch emotes and anime react pics

    It's not going to be easy for the theme to be non-terrible with so many words being used. I have always held that one word themes are superior. I will not bother to explain why, because I think it should be obvious.

    there's no space after the first O so theme couldn't be "two sides of the same coin" rip

    Might as well contribute a bit, I don't expect I'll have the energy to contribute with a very interesting game this time...
    • Top 3 gets a free copy of MariaEngine, YaruDanmakuEngine and Fast Furry Framework. (Teams still just get 1 of each so they need to figure out a distribution among themselves).
    • 9th place gets 10000 characters' (unformatted ASCII characters, includes whitespace) worth of flavor text about the item(s) or character(s) of their choice.

    assuming that "two_sides_of_the_same_coin" is the actual theme:

    my inspiration would be FIRE!!! what about everyone else, if you are also believers?

    moon of night and sun of day, a time they are betwixt
    summer and winter, rainy and dry
    then and now, past and future
    never was and always will be,
    from the beginning, until the end of time
    i tell stories made from ideas and nothing,
    this maker and this hype.

    How do we get in on this jam? Is there a sign-up sheet somewhere? Or do we just make a game and submit it?

    Yep, just make a game according to the theme and submit it in the submission thread. Make sure you read the rules in post #1.
