my game jams (with capx source)

  • I'll keep updating this thread with entries & possibly some base templates (which are a must when working in a short timeframe).

    One Hour Game Jam happens every Sat at 20:00 UTC, usually with a stream by Ludum Dare pixelart legend Bitslap (& brothers) afterwards where they laugh at how bug-ridden the entries are:

    It's great fun & I'm finding it a useful exercise in focus & productivity (even though I can never finish in the hour), plus some good ideas come out of it. C2 is of course the ideal tool for rapid prototyping, & after recommending it to a few people in the chat I thought I'd post the source of my better entries. I've given them a quick cleanup & added comments about my thought process as well as the code itself.

  • Where can I find out how to join teams? Do you need to attend in person (didn't see too much info on the site)

  • No it's just an online thing that started out from the ludum dare irc chat. The irc channel for the jam is: irc.afternet.org/1hgj

    Here's what the channel's bot has to say about it:

    [quote:pjrljt9e]1 hour game jam takes place every Saturday at 20:00 UTC ( ).

    At the start of the hour, I announce a random theme. You then have about an hour (we give you some flexibility) to submit a link to your game at . You are free to use premade assets but it is recommended that you do make atleast one game from scratch.

    Then at about 21:30 UTC the bitslap brothers will stream themselves playing each of the games at

  • You're a hero! Thank you for sharing this. As a beginner, this could really be a great resource for me. Really liked Platforms of the Dead!

  • heyguy Thanks I've done a lot more 1hgj's in the last year, so if you see any of my entries on the site that you want a capx for then let me know.

  • Thanks for providing us your sources! Creative ideas are always great

    By the way, do you know Jams, where the topic "low poly" is commonly used? I know what jams are, but not really where I can find them (beside stupidly googling them ;D ).

  • Proxymity you could try & you can enter anything for 1HGJ, even if it doesn't fit the theme, then watch it get played on the twitch stream afterwards.

  • mattb

    Well, thats exactly what I needed! Thanks!

  • Excellent projects, someone will be continued?
