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).

I'm not sociable enough for a team event but I'll at least make an effort to play and give feedback on peoples' entries.

Probably the more valuable contribution, all things considered.
Soooooo.. I know this has already started and work shifts are looming BUT I need to do something, and either I go review some games or I join a funsies, if anyone needs an addon member. I GO CRAZY WITH LIFE.

I would be a mascot character with the ability to write, test, feedback, do some artsies perhaps. Make me your art slave? I breathe poetry too! I have done some pixeling, but never true quality stuff.

I may PM bicfarmer too cause it the leftovers, I just hope to be at least some use, though I realize the brunt of work is elstwhere. Here's to a maybe!


Edit: Double Posterino. Whoops.

Edit Edit: I HAS GOT A TEAM. AS THANKS I OFFER 1 LIFESTONE.

Team? I got an idea for a story but if anyone already has an idea in process and planned I'm up for helping them with anything I can. I am good with planning, writing (don't rely on my grammar), feedback (I have someone who can say how great my feedback is), eventing and play testing. I cannot do sound work or art, nor can I always 100% fix event bugs or fix grammar needing to be corrected.
After y'all submitted your gams, I'm gonna speedrun it and make sure I finish it fast.

because no one wants to adopt me anyway uwu

Team leftovers sounds like a TOTALLY awesome place to take adoptions, and I feel you might just fit in perfectly.
I was even thinking of it, but time is so so .. whatever.

Basically:
WILL U BE THE WATER FOR MY BREADCRUMBS?

I asked bicfarmer so we can make a beautiful consensual decision.
