I won't say "I'm in", because that usually results in me instantly thinking "Why did I just do that?", when it comes to Jams of any kind.

So I won't say "I'm in!!!" 😁

Go for it! As long as it's something made within the three-day period, have an adventure. It doesn't have to be expertly made by any stretch. My first Jam entry was an incredibly generic platformer with wonky physics. The main character was a faceless red sphere. No story; I was just too lazy to make an actual character model. These contests are a great way to get more involved in the community.

The jams are for anyone. Of course you can enter. Normally you would see what the theme is and try and make a game relate to it. But you can make any game you can. If you read the original post that will give you some guidance. Follow this post for fun as well.

I hope to see you there. Dont worry if your game isn't Zelda. Just have fun and make the best game you can that weekend. Simple little games are great in jams. You still have a couple weeks to learn some GM. If you can make something move, shoot and die you got yourself a game....haha.

@Tonywryip Actually, it's four-day period, i.e. from Thursday noon UTC to Monday noon UTC.

In this Jam's case, it's from May 28th 12:00 UTC to June 1st 12:00 UTC. You can use the countdown timer here.

Originally it ran from Friday to Monday, but it's been suggested to add Thursday as an extra day for brainstorming - since at the start people mostly do brainstorming, anyway - and we generally found the four-day period to work pretty well for the past few Jams.

Some theme ideas that still work! (Not specific at all, we had way too much fun with this!)

IN SPACE DECEPTION FOR MARS
IN CRASH DETECTIVE COP CARS
IT REEKS DEFECTIVE DOG FOOD
IT SUCKS EXPECTING COW POOP
IT HURTS DEFENDING POT LIDS
IN SHOCK ASCENDING SOY BEAN

I already have ideas for some of these.

A new guess:

IN HEAVY INTENSIVE GOD MODE

Not sure if there can be more E's, I's or O's in the other positions.
If not, the list of 9 letter words can be narrowed down to just a few likely ones, among which blueprint, superrich, synergism (assuming that it's not ytterbium 😄 ). That is, not including conjugations of certain verbs, like "squeaking".

Correct letters
90% positive correct guessed letters
100% guessed letters

not really trying to guess phrases but the correct letters, when at least 1 letter for each word is reviled then guessing phrases would work a lot better

I am still surprised I've never been in last place...
I made a paint program called PaintB***h and still didn't get last place.
A proper sequel might be due soon, PaintB***h didn't have all the features I'd like.

20% of your Blue letters are incorrect, 80% of them are right.
