Match the rows with tofus to clear the rows before you pass the cook.
  • Can we set it up? I'm ready with $25. Let's get it to $100. Anybody with a mature Itch account that wants to spearhead?

    If straight $ complicates things, can we offer a gift card or some other type of reward? Could we funnel that money into license time for the winner?

  • I'm in for $50. I wish I had time to jam, but I just don't these days. So maybe promoting a jam for other people will satisfy that "itch".

    I think that the prize money should be handled by a single, trustworthy person. They can be paid via PayPal and then issue the prize money that way too.

    I'm happy to assist with communication and judging, and even setting up the jam itself.

    Let's do this!

    Awesome! I was thinking two prizes. One for Judge's pick and the other for Community pick. I've never set up a jam before, so if you or someone else wanted to take the lead, that would be fine!

    I don't want to be the kind of person to suggest something and then sit back expecting other people to do all the work ha.

    As far as $, I'm pretty sure you're trustworthy enough. Especially since you're putting up $50. Even if it's just us, I think a few bucks will go a long way towards motivating folk to show us what they can do with the engine.

    You think Ashley, Tom or any other staff might be interested in Judging with us?

  • I'd love to see how much money could be pledged to this. If there's anyone else who wants to join, perhaps we can think of a solid way to manage the funds. I'm sure if we could that would encourage more to pledge.

  • That's a good point. What about something like Fundly? Donations/Fundraising page, but I imagine it might work for this. Would make it much easier for people to contribute.

  • Try Construct 3

  • I'm going to leave this open and up for another day or two, then we're going to get it started.

    If you want to contribute or have any ideas/input, please reach out!

    I'm thinking a 3-7 day jam with 7 days to initially sign up. Surprise theme given when the jam starts. Engine must be Construct 3 or Construct 2.

    Special prize category for participants that offer their .capx or .c3p (with or without assets)! Since this is for the community, there should be a reward for those looking to boost it through tutorials and learning opportunities.

    Voting will be open only to those that also submit a project as well as a judge panel.

    Ashley Let me know if you or anybody on your team would like to be involved in any capacity. If not, maybe the next jam.

    GeoffB Thank you for stepping up! Email me at Marilefabledfqe@outlook.com and we can get the prize stuff sorted out. If you're cool with handling the funds, I'd love to have that squared away. Even if it's only our $75, it's a decent start.

  • Just an update. I'm working to finish a game for an ongoing jam, but after that, I'll create the Construct Jam and start a new thread for it. As always, hit me up here or find me on Itch!
