End of the day 1

The process of 48 hours was really fun in general. I was really panic when trying to draw my very first pixel art game, it is quite challenging but I did overcome that. Also, I learn how to make music and hopefully it is suitable with gameplay.

Enjoy the building process and playing games.

Finished! 1

Quite happy I finished, because I don't normally take part in 48h game jams (if you're curious to know why, see my entry).

Good luck to everyone still struggling with their games! <3

This was the very first Game Jam I have ever partecipated in, and I was able to finish the game. Indeed, there are a lot of things that could be improved with more time, but I'm satisfied (here the entry).
This is the second game I have ever made, and I completely underestimated the time required to draw and animate the sprites, I spent all saturday on graphics while in my original plan they should have been ready in 3 hours of work (ah, what a fool XD)
It was really exahusting, and today I had to rush to get everything completed.

I had the great idea of streaming on twitch the whole process of making the game, which took me a lot of energies. I really learned a lot of things, and now I am really curious to see how other partecipants interpreted the theme and what they managed to do.

Good luck to everyone who partecipated, I look forward to play your games!

Throwing in the towel 2

This was my first game jam. I went way too ambitious. I tried to do too much new stuff and I just got bogged down. I learned a ton and had fun, but it's clear to me at this point I'm not going to finish. I can't wait to try again on the next one!

Good luck everyone!

Interesting pixel art 2

This is the first game jam I have every join and it is also a chance for me to learn how to draw pixel art. I am really excited about this theme and decided to make simple platformer game.

What a challenging theme! 0

I feel this theme is really challenging, but it would be very fun to see the original ideas of the partecipants. I really look forward to play all the games :D
Good luck to everyone!

REPLICA Framework 1.5
Krita + pen, pencil and paper

The theme — I’m not sure what to do with it, but it has potential. I’ll think of something.


First game jam 1

AtiumBit • 1 year ago on 15th Alakajam! 

This is my first game jam ever! I just started making games a couple months ago, so I'm a bit nervous that I won't complete a game. The pixel art is primarily where I'm worried all my time will be spent. I'm going to make my game with java using the libGDX framework.

Doing a smaller one this time... 0

As this weekend is going to be crazy hot here in germany, I will use the days to be as close to water as possible :D
That leaves me with the nights, which is where I'll try to fit the gamedeving.
I would assume this gives me around 12h of time in total, so I'm definitely looking forward to this challenge.

Like in the past couple of gamejams, I'm gonna use pico-8 to create my game.
See you all!

I'll be on vacation without a computer, but joining anyway 3

And by "computer" I mean a thing with a physical keyboard, of course; smartphones and ebooks don't count. I know there are probably ways to make a game on a phone, but poking my eyes out with a fork sounds only marginally less pleasant than that.

Instead, I'm bringing a deck of cards and will design you a card game this time! I know it says "video game" in the rules, but a conversation in Discord made it clear that this is an oversight; it was never intended to exclude physical games.

I'll only use a regular deck of 52 playing cards and maybe some tokens, and probably aim for a single-player game, so the threshold for playing and rating shouldn't be too high.

It'll be interesting.
