    I will award a Steam key to our new game - Nation Breakers: Steam Arena - to 4th place in this Jam.

    The countdown clock is still "coming soon"... with 5 hours to go..... or is it 3 hours? Let me go check the countdown clock.

    oooh supernatural, yesssssss

    despite being very generic (possibly too generic, supernatural includes a lot of stuff from religion to aliens to magic to unexplained phenomena) I am 100% in on it

    No bones about it, closer to Christmas than Halloween so this theme has spooked me. I haven’t the gravest of ideas but I’ll try dig one up. It’s always satisfying when you can flesh out the mere wisp of a game idea.

    Best of luck everyone! I've always come up with the game on the fly, but this time I think I might have to think for a while before starting :p

    I have a very cool concept, but thus far design implementation seems to be impossible. I will keep working at it... I don't want to compromise the concept.

    I've got a really stupid idea, and an even more stupid idea for how to implement it. Stay tuna'd.

    I already have a working tetris game, turns out my idea for how to implement it easily was more powerful than I expected! Time to add that extra zest I had in mind... blocks having different types, and the type giving them autonomous behavior.

    Is my first JAM, in yoyogame, should I create my own sprite? Or can I get in the market?

    Make everything yourself, don't worry about winning xD

    There's a sticky in this forums with jam resources to help, though.

    I can assure you I didn't buy my Demon Santa:

    Things are coming along smoothly!
    [​IMG]

    My idea is that the different types of blocks will do different things, so you gotta think about what block types are safe to put where, not just about matching the patterns up.

    You should read the top post. Third rule. You can use some pre made assets. Making your own is fun. Keep them simple.

    Looking forward to playing your game. Have fun!!!!!!

    I have stock resources of basically every type imaginable lying around, and I know several good places to find them in case my collection proves insufficient :p
    This font in particular is Comeback of The Damned, which I think is a NAL / Checkered Ink production.

    I updated my post in the Games Topic. I got most of my twitch recordings linked up on that post so you can all follow what Ive been doing for the jam. I even got an artwork to represent the game. I got to do one more live stream later before calling Day 1 an end. Tomorrow will be a big day for me. :)

    I got a finished(ish) version of my game all polished up and ready to play... 17-ish hours well spent~
    https://yaru.itch.io/ghostris

    It's buggy, and unbalanced both gameplaywise and audiowise, but I've been stuck playing it for like 30 minutes so I guess I can believe in the core concept (a tetris game that actively fights against you) even though it's the most stupid thing I've ever completed :p

    It's probably because you're a new user. It'll probably go away soon enough (a few days)

    Yeah, you're too new.
    You need to hit a certain post count (10?) before you can post images afair.

    I think it's great that the theme is 'Supernatural'. As someone who has watched all 15 seasons of the adventures of the Winchester brothers I believe there is a lot of potential there, so kudos to whoever decided this tv show should be the focus for this game jam.

    I'm thinking a side scrolling survival horror game, where you play as Sam or Dean and they have different abilities, like: Dean can actually emote properly and Sam has the capability to gurn in a facsimile of being a better actor. You rummage around the environment to find rock salt for ghosts, or silver jewellery / cutlery that you can melt down into bullets for killing werewolves. Smash up chairs / tables and sharpen the wood to make stakes for killing vampires. Draw spells using the mouse in a manner that may, or may not, be totally cribbed from Arkane Studios "Arx Fatalis"

    This game jam topic is a really good one ;)

    I almost did the same type of game, not within the universe of the show, but in the “detective ghostbusters” approach.

    But the variety of assets and game mechanics too big for me in a Jam

    Could I give a little more information, how to play ?, My English is bad, and in the game I can't copy and paste the text into the translator. And then right now I don't have time to get up to the bathroom, so I can't rewrite, you will understand :) JAM RUN :p

    Working with @The M on my first collab. A lot of doors open up on creativity when splitting the workload in half.
    A bunch of interesting projects are popping up so far, keep it up! Now to hit the bed after 12+ hours of drawing stuff.

    Did you just make a piano joke? :p

    *bragging intensifies*



    I did some rebalancing stuff, hopefully my game should be actually playable now x3 Made all the blocks that cover half the screen more rare (since those basically always mess you up, especially if you get multiple of them in a row)... now they're on a timer so you've got some normal blocks to work with between every "oh shiiiiiiiiii-" moment. And you can save a block for later, which means you can avoid having to deal with one (1) of the big blocks... or do that thing where you save a 4x1 block until later for a guaranteed Tetris. Except the whole "blocks move around all the time" thing kinda breaks any and all ability to plan ahead in Ghostris x3
