Last chance! 0

laaph • 4 years ago on Feedback Fortnight 2019 

Today is the last day of Feedback Fortnight! It is your last chance to play the games and tell the creators what you think!

I also recommend everyone give the games another spin. Maybe on your second or third play you might find more thoughts you may want to share with the authors.

Feedback Fortnight submissions are on! 0

Don't forget to submit to Feedback Fortnight before the submissions window closes! We will give an extra few days before closing submissions. However, if you submit earlier, this gives your associates more time to give you feedback! Don't be someone who tries to submit in the last few days hoping for lots of feedback!

For those who aren't sure how it works, here is a bit of explanation. Take any game that you (or your team) have made, and submit it. It can be made for a game jam, for a personal project, from anywhere for anywhere, and submit it. We only ask that you don't charge money to play it. During the next two weeks, we play each other's games and give critical feedback on everything and everything we imagine. So, if you submit, be prepared to play other games and give them feedback too.

So what are you waiting for! Find that game you want to have player feedback on! Submit it, and start reviewing the other games!

Feedback Fortnight is coming! 0

Feedback Fortnight will be from December 6 to December 31! This is an event where you submit any game, and ask for feedback! If you do so, you should also give feedback to everyone else who submitted! We all need feedback on our games, right? We need to know what people think of our games!

During the weekend of the 6th-7th, submit your game to Alakajam. Then, for the next two weeks, play other games and wrote comments about your experiences, what is or isn't fun, what you think about the details, menus, controls, graphics, sound, and anything and everything else!

Your game need not be made this weekend, or for a game jam, but you can use any game you have made! We only ask that it can be made available to play for free.

The games won't get any rankings or ratings, just feedback. No bragging about being first, but who cares, you will get good commentary!

Congratulations to Aurel300, shintaku, and jcochet for their amazing skills at the games that you, the participants of Alakajam, have created!

Go admire the leaderboard here!

If you would like to see your creation being featured in the 6th Alakajam Tournament which will be approximately some time around March 2020, fill out the form here!

Coming soon will be the November Challenge, and then in December we will have Feedback Fortnight! November Challenge is a challenge to yourself to make $1 from your video games. Feedback Fortnight is where you can take a work in progress, submit it, and participants give feedback to all the games submitted.

Thanks to both all the makers of the games and to the players of the games! It takes both to have fun making and playing video games!

Let's take a break from making games, and play the games that we have been making instead!

How it works: We pick a selection of games that have been submitted to various Alakajam events. These games have a commonality in that they will track a score. (Edit: This tournaments games have been selected! But, if you want to be in the next tournament, submit here!) Then, for two weeks, you play these games, and when you get a high score, take a screenshot and submit your score! Easy and fun!

And then, if you have the most high scores, we will post a fancy graphic that looks like you won prizes! You will get your user name posted next to a picture of a trophy! Can you begin to imagine the bragging rights?

The Fifth Alakajam Tournament is from October 11th to the 27th, so mark your calendars!
