This post is devoted to 8hLD/NanoLD as it will be known as from now on voting. Voting will start at Monday, 0:00 CEST and will start up until Sunday 23:59 CEST. Only people registered before May 9th can vote (to avoid votefarming). To vote please comment on this post with name of the game you voting on (it has to be game posted in previous 8hld post as comment).
Please DON’T comment on it until voting starts and don’t post comments which aren’t votes to avoid mess. All discussion about voting should go into previous post. Thanks.
So making games in 48 hours is not challenging anymore for you? How about making game in a WORK DAY? Think you could do that? Well, we can see about that!
I call first 8h LD
The rules of it are similar to “normal” LD, but you have to make game and submit it in 8 hours!
So how about it? Will you participate or are you chickening out?
The jam will begin at Saturday 26th May on 08:00 AM CEST and will end on 04:00 PM CEST. You have to make and submit game before it ends.
The jam theme is DRAGONS.
Voting will start at Monday, 0:00 CEST and will start up until Sunday 23:59 CEST. Only people registered before May 9th can vote (to avoid votefarming).
Next 8hLD or NanoLD as it’ll be known from now on (unless this name is already taken, tell me about this then) will be organised better, I promise.
What do you think about making MiniLD every week instead of every month? There will be exception for weeks of regular LD and week after.
Of course no one is forcing to be in every MiniLD but for some people gamemaking contests, even without prize is the only thing that can actually motivate them for making game. And besides – more contests, more fun.
Or maybe other idea: How about letting community members (not only admins) to set up contests at will? After all nobody is forcing nobody to participate so it certainly won’t hurt, even if there will be, say 2-4 submissions.
“Community contests”, as I’d call them would differ from MiniLD in that timeframe and all rules regarding specific contest would be adjustable by person who makes it. I think it’ll bring much more life to LD community and perhaps new developers too.
By the way, sorry for lousy English at times, but I’m not native English speaker and I am kinda tired (was up for last 36 hours), and it’s kinda adds up. Though spellchecker doesn’t underline me anything, there probably are grammar mistakes.
So what you think about idea presented in this post?
