Joined 7 years ago

I'm in for my first 72h gamejam in solo 1

Thrainsa • 4 years ago 

This will be my 8th Alakajam but I usually participate with @Wan and more recently with @Balboom.
Sadly, this time they won't be available so I decided that I'll try making a game in solo.

My plan for this jam will be to play with some things I want to try with Unity
I would like to try the new input system, the new UI builder and if I can find an idea that permits it, I would love to try the ml-agent package to create an AI.

I know this will be a big challenge to try so much things but who cares? ^^
And I restricted myself, I will not try the new DOTS system in beta :D

Here's what I'll be using:

  • Unity
  • VS Code
  • Blender for low poly
  • if I need some 2D
  • and I have no idea what for sound if I have some time left for it

The game ratings phase is on 0

Thrainsa • 4 years ago 

For the next two weeks, all entrants are be able to give ratings on other games. Take some time to play & rate games, and even better write some feedback about it! 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.

By 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 10 to be classified. Otherwise, you will not get a final ranking!

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

Go go go! Play and rate games!

Bonus day for unranked submissions 0

Thrainsa • 4 years ago 

Congratulations everyone for joining the jam :)

Submissions are still open for unranked submissions: while those won't be officially ranked, they can expect as many people to play & comment on them. So, if you haven't finished your game in time, it's not too late to complete something! Game submissions will completely close Monday at 10pm UTC.

We will post more details about the voting phase tomorrow evening, but you can already go play & review games right now!

Theme Ranking 1

Thrainsa • 4 years ago 

Theme Ranking is up for the 8th Alakajam!

You can now choose which are the best themes for you and this 8th Alakajam.
These 10 themes came out from a list of 174 themes so they are surely all good but which one is THE THEME?

To give you motivation and inspiration, try to give us here an elevator pitch of a game having the more themes ;)
I'll start:

You found a Treasure Map that reveals Secrets Loots coming from Among the stars. Theses loots were buried in the Depth of the sea by a powerful Summoner. Your journey starts in a peaceful Harbour but The road will be long and perilous until you can finally Steal the secrets from the summoner. As soon as you leave the harbour the Weather starts to to change and soon the worst storm you've ever seen is upon you…

Trinity 0

Thrainsa • 5 years ago 

I start rating games late but I hope it will be enought to get the 10 votes ;)

Come and check our Trinity game entry for the 5th Alakajam.
I'll rate more games tomorrow so don't hesitate to leave a comment so I can check your game tomorrow ;)

Run for your Life 0

Thrainsa • 5 years ago 

Run for your life is a Fantasy Endless runner plateformer.
The basic idea came from the movie the Hobbit with the goblin chase

I wanted to create an endless runner where you have a party of adventurer that need to create their path through a lot of monsters and plateforms. The have to use magics and the environment to defeat their enemies.

To get there, I started with a smaller version where you only have one character with a fireball and that will need to avoid Ogres or destroy them to get further. This version is also inspired by "Jetpack joy" another endless runner ;)

I would be happy if you can try it and give me your feedbacks and/or ideas to get closer to my first idea.
Have fun ;)

Game Submission 1

Thrainsa • 6 years ago 

Just to remind you that you can specify Platforms available for your game and you can add some Tags to help people on the search engine ;)

Good luck every one for the last hours

Don't forget the find team 0

Thrainsa • 6 years ago 

There is 3 teams open on the find team website. This is a good opportunity if you don't know if you can create a whole game alone ;)

Codename: "Space Robot Alchemy" - Work in progress 0

Thrainsa • 6 years ago 

Despeat the fact that we start the jam late, I'm really pleased of what we achieved so far.
The basics system seems good, but we still need lots of polishing and difficulty adjustment.

I still have lots to do since @wan is polishing the website and @ihnaut could not be here today.
It's time for lunch before the last sprint!
