AaronBacon • 3 months ago 

The Submission period for the 18th Alakajam has come to a close! Now begins the 2 week voting phase, where anybody can play and vote on the entries, regardless if you submitted a game or not. Well done to everyone that made a game, and remember constructive feedback is the most useful. On November 13th voting will end and the results will reveal the winner! (Though as always, making a game in under 72 hours is an acheivment in itself!)

Happy Playing!

The 18th Alakajam has Begun! 0

AaronBacon • 3 months ago 

The Theme is LABYRINTH

Get ready for Twisting Corridors, Mysterious Dead-ends, and Mind-bending Puzzles, because the theme for the jam is Labyrinth!

Make a Maze! Solve a Puzzle! make a Maze that solves a Puzzle! Whether you want to pull from myth and legend with Minotaurs and deadly traps, or experiment with algorithms that can navigate twists and turns like nobody's business, Take the theme and make any game involving or about a Labyrinth!

You have 48 Hours starting now for the Ranked Jam, or 72 Hours for the more relaxed, Unranked Jam. Also, remember the website has leaderboards built into every submission if you want to enable it, so feel free to make a scoring system so people can compete for the Highest Scores or Fastest Times! (As a bonus, your game might also be picked as a tournament game =P)

Good Luck, and don't get lost in there!

Just reached the end of a 10 hour Long stream and I'm pretty happy with what I have so far. 0

AaronBacon • 3 years ago 

Wasn't sure what I'd get done but I managed to not only turn a world map into a playable area, but also got every mechanic for my game done. I now have the rest of the Jam to add features, polish and playtest. (Hoping people can help me with the last one =))

For now I'm gonna get some sleep, but I'm happy with the game I've got so far and I'll definitely have more fun working on it.


Hullo World! 0
