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

Accurate reactions.
About this rule
- The game needs to stick to one of the themes and be recognisably based on that theme.

Are there more than one themes or just one theme?
Libby sure is attacking my non-artistic ego uwu.

(jk someone adopt me pls uwu)
I suppose I'll probably play a few of these games before the contest is over. At least if people finish their games up a few days in advance.
bicfarmer is looking for two more peeps.
Shinan and Cap_H are looking for a third to help them slack but also maybe mak game maybe!
oddRabbit would like to lead a team.
Avee has offered retro-style graphics.
Seiromem is up for testing and battle stuffs.
tale needs two more for their team.
KatanaHiroshi wants to be adopted.



(Apologies to psy who got called a flake because I mistakenly put his name on the list. He wasn't down to party, unfortunately, but that's no reason to take frustrations out on him. Keep in mind that it's very possible that I made a mistake when putting up names so keep it friendly.)

Also an extremely bitchy judge TBH
I mean, I'm not against having another judge on board as long as they'll actually play the games within a reasonable time frame...

Fear the Sooz.

Our team has managed to agree on some main ideas rather quickly and we will now proceed to plan out the gam mak. Wish all of you the best of gam mak and may the best gam mak get the TIM TAMS!!!!!
I ...


have no idea what to do with this theme.

*existential crisis*
Let me throw a few ideas for showing how flexible this is out there:
= collect the mcguffin art supplies to bring demon back to life
= steal the colours from the world to paint a pic
= hero is struggling artist sucked into world of their paintings
= persona 5
= art attacks
= game with cubist aesthetic
= let's sculpture shit
= golden ratio is maths
= omg origami
= oh no someone stole all the music!
= give me back my art
= I cannot art so I must kill everyone
= oh no cute artsy bois need my love!
= save the gallery by getting artists to mak art
= look out the sky is falling and suddenly there's surrealism
Additional ideas which may or may not be okay:
= Name your Important Characters after Famous Artists/Sculptors/etc.
= Have your accessories grant abilities based on famous paintings (EX: The Scream)
= Draw your characters like a young child (AKA: Stick Figures)
= Base the name and look of your game around a famous painting/sculpture/etc.

Bad Ideas
= Don't have your character running around snapping big breasted girls underwear like "Stretch Panic". A game where you go inside paintings to fight bosses. And no, I don't remember why you need to give women wedgies in this game at the moment.
We have a story concept, setting, game play style and we have a cast....so far.

If I were participating I'd just do whatever I wanted and then excuse it as "MY GAMES ARE ARRRRRT!" and then be banned for too much sass
