Description

Welcome one and all to the first TimTam Game Slam! This event is basically about teaming up with other people to create games within a set time, based around a theme. It also comes with a prize - a packet of TimTams sent to your door!

What are TimTams? Why, only the best chocolate biscuit in the world! Well, okay, maybe not the absolute best, but they're freakin' amazing and I swear by them. They come in a variety of flavours and they taste so good you won't want to share them - which is great since they come in a pack of 11, making them impossible to divide evenly with your friends.

They're also Australian and I swear by them. Yeah boi~<3

RULES


- Teams of three people, no more, no less.
- Any engine as long as the games are playable without.
- This is a competition, as such all games will be judged!
- Each game needs to be over 10 minutes long at least.
- No dumb-ass joke games. The game needs to be of a reasonable quality to count.
- The game needs to stick to one of the themes and be recognisably based on that theme.
- Gamepage required.


EVENT STARTS: 23rd of February
EVENT ENDS: 31st of March


Theme: ART



THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND


+Any resources are fine, but keep in mind that people might stream or LP your games, so attempt to use non-copyrighted music where possible. The Emperor's March might be cool as balls, but it tends to get videos taken down no matter if it's a remix or midi version. There's a ton of free-to-use music out there if you look around, and even youtube has a bunch of channels dedicated to sharing such.

+ You can use resources from old projects, but the actual body of work needs to be new (this means maps and database stuff).

+ If you win and don't like biscuits or chocolate or the like, let me know and we can work out another Aussie snack as a prize instead.

+ Gamepage needs to be accepted to the site before you can even add your entry to the event page, so remember to get them in reasonably early!

+ Liberty is judging you. Hi~ o/



PRIZES


Contributors - A 20MS badge for taking part, providing the game/demo is over 10 minutes long and of reasonable quality.

Winners - A 75MS badge for each of the winning team and a packet of TimTams sent to your door (you can choose from a variety of flavours).

Teaming up!
Yes! Just what I was waiting for! I'm a little nervous because it would be my first time working with a team, but all that matters is that we finish something and that we have fun doing it.
Looking to join a team. Have experience in RM2k/3, VXA, MV, VNM, SRPG Studio, Unity, and prolly something else. Can do writing, mapping, eventing, sprite recolors, random resource finding, light script editing, and prolly something else.

Got in Piano's team! Woo.
I wish they would stop fucking around with all these new flavours of Tim Tam. All you need is the original and double coat, everything else is lame.

This also looks like a super cool jam but unfortunately I am up to my armpits in freelance work T_T. Good luck to everyone that enters!

Wrong! White chocolate, caramel, salted caramel, black forest, peppermint, cookies and cream and various other flavours are amazing and deserve to exist in this world. There's nothing wrong with plain and double coat, but I refuse to live in a world without the aforementioned other flavours!

This post has lead me to create the conspiracy that the only reason they have all of these new flavors after 50 years of just 2 is for the foreign market. Now excuse me while I go make an hour 8 long youtube video split over 30 parts detailing the finer details of this new conspiracy.

Is the theme biscuits?
If anyone's got any cool 2D/3D jrpg/tactics battle systems they want to try out, I'm willing to code something up in Unity but otherwise I've probably got too much stuff going on to commit to organizing a team

oh I could also do writing or abstractish horror

I'm a fucking Aussie, mate. No foreign market here.
I'll say as I said on discord. I'd love to join a team but my skillset is incredibly limited. What I'd like most is to just program/assemble a game in Adventure Game Studio while someone else did story and assets and stuff like that.
Uff, team event. I'm gonna have to scrounge up two other people to work with me, then...

Oh, right. My computer's broken.

If you didn't want me to participate you could just say so :V
Can't beat em? Join em!

I'm looking at you!

Red Nova. Unity. Sooz. Sgt.

You all have shattered my dreams in one way or another. Crushed me into a can of worms and dumped me into the gutters. Fire. I had to crawl through fire. Just to emerge from the can of worms back into the good ol' zDS you all grew to tolerate on twitter.

Now is my chance to do this to someone else. And I need your help. Join my conquest to win the grandest prize of them all: Australian biscuits cookies. :banned:


That said I presume you're all busy so I'll just get esby- Oh, I see how it is esby. Maybe arc- oh, he wants to join piano. I see how it is. Maybe, just maybe, I'll recruit another from Australia. I'm looking at you, visitor of dreams. I just need to beg and cry first.
You already crushed me. I tried to team up with you for this event weeks ago... you rejected me! Don't try to twist this around to be my fault! All I wanted was your love... at least Piano wanted me!!!

I am pretty sure this is close to how both my divorces went too... guess we are doomed to repeat history.

Wait I pressed the button by accident I didn't mean to uhhh....

I guess my team is the RTP only low-effort team that probably won't submit anything.
Team RTP is a time-honored jam tradition!
