The next event will be a gaming competition called AKJ Tournament, where the community is invited like last time to play & compete on jam games! If you want to submit your own game to the event, follow this link.

I added 5 more levels to Get High, my simple puzzle game for Alakajam #7. It also is now playable directly in the browser!

The game ratings phase is on 0

Wan 6 months ago on 7th Alakajam!

For the next two weeks, all entrants are be able to give ratings on other games. Take some time to play & rate games, and even better write some feedback about it! Getting constructive feedback is one of the best ways to learn and improve one's game design skills, so please dish it out in buckets. While people who didn't enter the event cannot rate games, they can still post reviews.

By rating & commenting (even on Unranked entries), you will gain Karma that will make your game more visible to others. A high Karma gives you more chances to get ratings yourself and reach the minimum of 10 to be classified. Otherwise, you will not get a final ranking!

On October 6th, at 7pm UTC the final results will be released and the winners crowned :)

Go go go! Play and rate games!

Dear Jammers !

I had a tremendous time participating in this edition. However the end of the event wasn't what I was hoping for. My wife (8 months pregnant) came down with the stomach flu and I had to call in a doctor right after submitting. I hope you all understand this had full priority over me writing up a project page with instructions on how to play the game, especially since I did all of this solo (code, graphics and audio)…

However, if you would allow me, I have taken the liberty to write one up now ! :) I am terribly sorry for those who played the game and had to "guess" the controls…

Cheers and thanks again for the nice time,

Dr. JavaSaurus

Forgotten Robes 0

Kerri 6 months ago on 7th Alakajam! entry Forgotten Robes

It's finished! I think this is the first time I've ever successfully completed a project for a game jam, there's still a lot I can do with this if I want too, and might but with time constrains I'm incredibly happy with where it is now.

I'd love it if you could all check it out and give me some feedback and let me know if there are any major errors (I can't test Mac or Linux).

This was a wonderful experience for me as I got to dive into something new with Godot and I am blown away by how wonderful it promises to become as a game development tool. I look forward to having more opportunities to use it in the future!

Unfortunately my team-mates both met some struggles so some parts of the game weren't hashed out as good as possible such as the tinkly music. The tinkly music is nice but it gets repetitive after a while and it doesn't convey the atmosphere I would've liked but as my composer contracted a virus over the weekend this was all she was able to produce, the rest of the sounds I mixed myself.

Thanks for reading and taking the time to check out my entry! :)

Glax Adventures (GameJam Demo) after posting 0

ShovelBoi 6 months ago on 7th Alakajam! entry Glax Adventures (GameJam Demo)
I posted the game yesterday and I am planning to turn this demo into a full game, I think it has potential.  I'm definitely going to change alot of mechanics and enemy speeds.  But this might turn into a full-on project.

LogicaLinsanity 6 months ago on 7th Alakajam! entry Tower Archer Defender

Like many others there's so many things I had to cut that were in my head, and I sure wish it looked prettier. But I'm just happy to have completed a game/game jam for the first time in years! Thanks all!

Finished my first solo jam! 2
