Heads up saltines, the 2013 Winter Game Jam is here!!!
Y'all have about nine days to get the job done! Submissions are due by midnight GMT, December 29.
Participating is simple:
1. If you haven't already, announce your intention to participate, and maybe check out who has already signed up
2. Post updates on your progress here!! (optional)
Once completed, please submit your game by following these two easy steps:
1. Join itch.io
2. Submit your games to the jam page through THIS LINK!
Following the submission deadline, we'll set aside a number of days in order to allow everyone to play and judge the submissions. Voting will commence afterwards, with one lucky saltizen taking home an astonishing prize.
But before all of that, I bet you're wondering... what's the theme anyway??
plain text version
(Don't want to choose? Want to challenge your creative jamming skills? Use a random number generator to pick a combination for you!)
Create a game based upon three of these actual IMDB keywords, taking one from each of the lists above! Will your game be about instilling communist values in peasant, stolen bones, and an eccentric senior citizen? An all-knowing psychiatrist, dead boyfriend and an incurable will to live?
Note that the game itself doesn't necessarily need to be cliched or hackneyed in any way. From the dregs of a stagnant, insular dystopian web 1.0 keyword hell rises something new...
How you choose to use these themes to influence your game is ultimately up to you...if you decide to use them at all! In the end, all that really matters is that you have fun...
You know you want that S.K.U.L.L., and the only way you're gonna get it is by wowing the Salt public! The way we see it, this can be achieved in a number of different ways...
TRUE SALT: Also known as Saltmancer, use a theme from each of the three panels in your game!
SALT DABBLER: Pick any one of these themes, and do something nutty with it!
SALT REBEL: Forget about the theme, it's your game, and you're do it your way!
CHAOTIC-SALTY: Use as many as you can!!!
So go hog wild and CLAIM WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY YOURS ! ! !
(really tho, have fun everyone~ mad holiday love n cheer to all y'all from neuropath + tiny's first pepsi )
