Game Jams... WHY THE HECK DO WE DO THIS TO OURSELVES???

Posted by JackSmack - July 12th, 2010


So I just released a new game that me and some close personal associates made for the Newgrounds Game Jam.

We only had 2 DAYS to make the game so it's a bit rough around the edges but it's pretty good.

I will more than likely look into making the text based engine more robust later on but I don't think I did to shabby of a job seeing as I programmed for 28 straight hours on this thing.


GO PLAY THIS GAME OR I CURSE YOUR UNDERPANTS TO HAVE THE ELASTIC GET ALL STRETCHY AND USELESS!

i really enjoyed it! - i honestly didnt know you could make a somethign that would interpret text like that! quite amazing!

:) Do you mean "I didn't know YOU could make something" as in me personally or that it was possible?

I'm glad you liked it, it was a few thousand lines of code and it's not really complete... But I have a good idea of things I would do differently if I make another text based game which is one good thing to take out of a game jam!

I'm going to bed now with my head that can make programs to interprit werds.
:)

Don't be so hard on yourself. You made a pretty great game, and this competition pretty much made my day, enjoying all the rushed jobs and unfinished masterpieces, that you normally don't get. And all it did was add some personality to your games. I have to go back to school tomorrow (I live in Australia) and the people competing in this game jam made my winter break end on a good note.
And I thank you for that!

Just remember, you didn't work your butt of for no good reason.

i just meant i didnt know it was possible at all! (maybe in like xbox games haha)

(thousand lines of code!!??!?!1 /killmyself haha)

That screenshot reminds me the film interpretation of the land of the lost.

hahahahha You know I didn't notice that but YEAH!

It's a good game. I killed the lifeguard. Poor him.

My team submitted the Quest For Cream game. It was cool to work with people that I've never worked with before and having to make a game within a short span of time. It got to show who is willing to go through it and who isn't.

The NG Game Jam is a fun and good learning experience for anyone in the flash scene.
