The jam is over, long live the jam! 0

Laguna • 2 months ago 

Congratulations everyone! The Ranked part of the 16th Alakajam is over, so "well done" to everyone who managed to develop a game during the weekend.
The Unranked Part will continue for another 24 hours. You have until September 12,10pm UTC to submit your unranked entry.

For the next two weeks, all entrants are be able to give ratings on other games. Take some time to play & rate games. 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 and comments, which is highly appreciated.
Of course you can also enter your higschores for the games that allow to do so.

By playing & 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 8 to be classified. Otherwise, you will not get a final ranking!

On September 25th, at 7pm UTC the final results will be released and the winners crowned :)

BloodyOrange and I will join the 16th Alakajam. This time just the two of us (compared to the 14th Alakajam where we participated in a group of 6).

I will use my JamTemplate as a starting point for coding and Reaper for music, SFXR for sounds.
BloodyOrange will use aseprite for art and if needed Tiled.

We will try to aim for a smaller game, but let's see what we end up with.

Introducing the 7th AKJ tournament 2

Laguna • 9 months ago 

Great news! The next AKJ tournament is coming up!

How it works

For two weeks, starting on Friday 2022-03-25 at 7pm and until Sunday 2022-04-10 7pm, everyone is invited to play and post high scores on a selection of games from the 14th Alakajam and other gamejams. Using screenshots as proof, players can compete in those games' leaderboards for points.

For each game, players are awarded a number of points for being in the top 10, as per the table below. The players with the highest total scores are shown on a global leaderboard throughout, and at the end we'll announce the winner and runners up.

Check out the previous leaderboard to see the current title holders! :)

I want my game to be part of the AKJ Tournament

If you want your game to be part of the tournament, please comment under this post or contact Laguna (preferably via DM on Discord).

We are in! 2

Laguna • 9 months ago 

This time, we will join in quite a large group. Our team consists of
Adkiem, Aneira, DiggiPander, Laguna, Thunraz and xxBloodyOrange. So obviously we will submit for the team session. We have worked in the same setup for the FrankenGameJam 2021 and it worked out great there!

For the tools we will use C++ with a custom JamTemplate that allows to deploy on windows, linux and web. Under the hood it uses SFML and SDL. IDEs will be Visual Studio, clion and visual studio code.
For graphics, aseprite will be used and the sound effects and music will be done in Cubase and Garage Band.

So from my side, I wish everybody already good luck and a great time!

Two announcements for the 14th Alakajam 2

Laguna • 9 months ago 

Hi everyone!

The 14th Alakajam is coming up on the next weekend! While everyone gets their engines ready and thinks about some concepts for the shortlist themes, there are two important anouncements:

Opening Stream

Before the jam starts, we will have the ever so awesome Opening Stream by @Aurel3000 and @DanaePlays.

  • What? Get even more hyped for the 14th Alakajam and join for the shortlist elimination.
  • Where? On DanaePlays' Twitch Channel -> Click
  • When? One hour prior to the jam -> February 25, 6pm UTC

Upcoming Alakajam Tournament

Closely after the Alakajam ends, the next awesome event will start! This will be the Alakajam Tournament, running from 2022-03-25 to 2022-10-04. You can find some details about it here.
When submitting your game for the 14th Alakajam, you can opt in to have it as a possible candidate for the Tournament. So if you have a highscore to crack, some ingame-timer to beat or some other mechanic to competetively play your game, this is a great opportunity! Make sure to plan ahead and join us on that event!

Preparation for the Jam

But back to the 14th Alakajam: If you are wondering how to prepare for the jam, you can

  • Share a "I am in" post here on the website, talking about your team, tools and ideas for the themes (cat pictures are appreciated as well)
  • Join the community on discord, follow on Twitter or on reddit
  • Take a look at the rules
