    Hack-a-Jam Game Competition in Two Days!!!

    Visit here!

    Hey everyone! I am glad to announce that the second Hack-a-Jam will be starting on July 14, and I am your host. There are only 2 more days left until a theme is released, and the comp starts!

    The Hack-a-Jam is a gaming jam that is different from others. Instead of one overall winner, there is an infinite amount of categories that you can win in, and there will always be multiple winners. Here are some examples of categories you can win in:

    Best Graphics
    Best Audio
    Most extra items (dev logs, etc.)
    Most Creative
    Most Glitch-free
    Longest Game
    Shortest Game
    Hardest Game
    Easiest Game
    Best themed
    Most fun game

    The amount of time given in the jam is voted on by the community, along with the theme. You can submit themes, and most of them will be sent to the Polls section, where others can vote on themes.

    By winning, you will get a badge and bragging rights, along with your name listed on the website permanently as a winner. When this jam gets to be huge, you will be really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really famous! The rules are not very restricted, as the jam is purely for fun:

    1. All game content must be created within the set time. Note: You can use other music, placeholder graphics, etc. as long as you are allowed to!
    2. Your game is not required to follow the theme, but would greatly improve your chances of winning. Unless every other game is not following the theme, it is almost guaranteed that your game won’t win anything.
    3. You must work alone, and you must create everything included in the game.
    4. All game creation tools are permitted, such as GameMaker, Photoshop, Flash, Paint, etc. Note: By game creation tools, I mean any tools that can be used to create your game.
    5. All game extensions/DLLs are permitted. If you want to make it multiplayer (if you are using GameMaker), go ahead and use 39dll.

    The second Hack-a-Jam takes place on July 14, in 2 days, so you should sign up now! Good luck everyone!

      I’m definitely going to try and do it after opting out the Mini LD. (Contrast theme didn’t really inspire me.) I have to get some sort of practice in for LD24!

      I like this idea. I’m in (as long as something doesn’t come up suddenly in my schedule).

    3. devshawn says:

      I should be in unless something unexpected comes up. I also need practice for LD24!

    4. It would be awesome if you all could join. The more members, the more games, which makes the whole thing even more fun!
