NG ONLINE GAME JAM 7
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).

WHAT?
+ 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!

THE KICKBALL TEAM-PICK SYSTEM
+ 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.

HOW TO SIGN-UP
+ 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 -+ ?)

THE THEME
+ Shhh... it's a secret.

DON'T FORGET!
+ 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.

NEED HELP GETTING PUMPED?
+ Check out all the games from the last six game jams.
+ Check out the Game Jam Survival Guide.
+ Game Jam post-mortem: what went right / what went wrong.

That's it, I'll be looking forward to jamming with you all!

Austin

Coolio. And Austin, you should make a Magic Pink Man 3, that was a cool game. Perhaps an Animal Puncher 2? All of your games/movies/art are great.

I'm sure everyone is much more worried about team members than team names. I hope the name isn't in stone, cause I'm gonna wanna let my team pick something much better than 'zeta' ...

6/28/12 AustinBreed responds:

Ha yeah it's all good, the team names are just there to keep track of all the teams during jam time.


I was under the impression CST was GMT - 6. If you're truly CST we should have a beer, I'll even call RicePirate.

6/28/12 AustinBreed responds:

I thought it was -4, time is weeeeird. I'm from KC.

Scratch what I said. I can't do it. Forced to go to family thing on 30th, which will last from probably 2PM-9/10PM EST.


Job (artist/programmer/musician/wildcard) / Tools of Choice / Years of Experience / Timezone (GMT -+ ?)

Programmer: Adobe Flash CS6 (trial, ending a couple weeks after Game Jam)
Experience: 3.5 years
Timezone: GMT-5 (EST though, so technically GMT-4?)


PikanjoPikanjo

6/23/12

Programmer: AS3/Flex | Flash5, CS3, CS5.5
Experience: ~10 years
Timezone:
I don't wanna force anyone to work with me, so if you're interested, please PM me, and I'll choose from those people. I don't know any Flash frameworks, so I'll be coding from scratch/using libs I've built up. The artist(s) can work in whatever version of Flash preferred (or even something else) - I plan to just export resources as .swc, which means you don't have to touch a line of code! I can also do voice acting and a lil art/animation if necessary. I will be busy the first half of Friday tho.
Anyone wanna do an HTML5/canvas game? (nowhere in AustinBreed's post does it define the medium).

QUESTION, Mr. Breed: Does your DON'T FORGET section imply that we can start working the week of, before the teams are even picked? ('made from scratch over the week')
