June 10th Update:
Join some discussion!
During the last weekend of June
The Game Jam 7 will begin on Friday, June 29nd, and the games will have to be in by 11:59pm on Sunday, July 1st (Newgrounds Time, EST).
+ A Game Jam is a community project to rapidly create video game designs and inject new ideas into the industry. Starting on Friday, teams of four or more will have three days to finish a game under certain stipulations.
+ You can play all the games from Game Jam 6 here, with the community-voted theme hallucinations.
+ Calling all animators, programmers, writers, musicians, bards: anyone with an ounce of creative potential is welcome to compete!
+ Teams will be decided using a new method. Programmers who are signed up will get to pick from a pool of teammates a day before the jam begins.
+ Sign-ups will stop after Wednesday, the 27th. On Thursday, programmers will select their team picks from a pool of everyone who signed up by posting in a provided thread. Each programmer is allowed to pick 1 artist, 1 musician, and 1 wild-card. First come, first serve. After every programmer makes his first picks, there will be another round of picks, until every person who signed up has a spot.
+ To sign-up, fill out the proper form and post it in this newspost. Please choose the job that suites you best!
+ Programmers are capable of writing in Actionscript 2 or 3. (Actionscript libraries, like Flixel and FlashPunk are allowed, and so is Stencyl.) Programmers are usually the backbone of their teams, and since programmers will be making the team picks this Jam, if you're going to sign-up make sure you'll actually participate! (Also, because programmers are usually in high demand, if you can program you should sign up for that.)
+ Artists are capable of animating and/or drawing in Flash. Digital painters have also helped make some great graphics for their teams - just make sure you include what tool you're using on your form.
+ Musicians are capable of producing music and/or sound effects for their team's games. Sometimes, the music can make or break a game!
+ Wildcards are capable of using other talents to add some extra juice to a game. These people can be writers, voice actors, ect.
Job (artist/programmer/musician/wildcard) / Tools of Choice / Years of Experience / Timezone (GMT -+ ?)
+ Shhh... it's a secret.
+ Don't forget about juiciness!
+ Art, animation, and engines must be made from scratch over the week. Don't just copy the same engine/art from another game you've made!
+ Actionscript libraries, such as Flixel and FlashPunk, and Stencyl are OK!
+ Ads, Newgrounds API, and non-Newgrounds API are OK!
+ If you use Stencyl on your game, you could enter it in the Newgrounds 2012 Stencyl Jam!
+ If you have any opinions or feedback, feel free to drop me a PM.
+ Look for a screencap/update thread when jam time rolls around. It's really fun to see what everyone else is doing during the comp.
That's it, I'll be looking forward to jamming with you all!
