Thank you to our game submitters, and thank you to everyone who played these games! Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, and though sometimes we like to continue things after their due date, alas we can not! I hope you had lots of fun playing new games and I hope the game authors got lots of things to think about!
With all that, prepare yourselves for the upcoming 16th Alakajam, coming on 9 September! See you soon!
It is time for Feedback Fortnight! How does this work? Show us your game! Look at everyone else's game! Comment!
To reiterate the rules, submit a game you want commentary on. It can be near anything, but it must be free and legal to play for anyone here. An old game you are polishing? Perhaps you didn't finish the last alakajam on time but want people to see it anyway? That sekrit project you've been working on but haven't told anyone? Something you are looking to get ready for commercial release? Just looking for bug testers? Just have a handful of ideas and want to see if the game might be fun? As long as you there is no monetary component it will be fine to post here.
Then, go play all the other games. Give your opinion. You can give as much or as little detail as you want. Remember to be nice, since someone took the courage to post their work here. Remember to give constructive feedback.
There are no ratings, no prizes, none of that. At the end, we will thank our most prolific feedback givers.
This is to help each other make better games.
You can look at this for more rules.
Since there is no "race" component of Feedback Fortnight, there is no reason you shouldn't submit early or late! We are opening submission posts shortly after the posting of the message. If your game is ready for comments, feel free to submit your game, and make a post telling us all about it! The official schedule is that we start giving Feedback on July 15th, but if you play a game before then and have something to say there is no reason to wait.
Submissions will be closed July 24 so that there is a full week of nothing new submitted, so those determined to give good feedback on every game will have a full week to do so.
Thank you everyone in advance for playing and evaluating all of the games! Together we can make our games better!
With the 15th Alakajam over, we move on to our next event, the Feedback Fortnight! Do you have something you want to show people? Did you not finish in time for alakajam but still want people to see? Do you have project that you've been working on for years? Do you just have some screenshots you want feedback on? If you want some feedback, this is your event!
How does it work? Post your project. Then, look at other projects, and evaluate them. Look at the descriptions and see if there is something in particular they want feedback on. Remember there is someone who is reading this, so don't just say mean things. Write up your constructive criticism, and we will share our ideas and thoughts to help each other make better games!
Feedback Fortnight 2022 starts soon so get your project ready to share with others! Chase that game breaking bug away, write up enough documentation so someone else will understand how to play package it up, it doesn't have to be perfect, just enough to show others! The event officially starts July 15, but we will open submissions soon! We can't wait to see your projects!
