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

Tim Tamptation is the best name.

Thanks! Burrowed name from Seiromem.

Anyway, I apologize for the late reply. I'm waiting for input whether I should show item craft mechanic along with parallax mapping/ overworld monsters.

Purify the Lord of Animation and usher in the end of all living objects, disarming any traps in the game that are mimics! Isn't that useful?
You said mimic, that means that every single statue and suit of armour in that map is a mimic, time to fight it seems.

Btw, that's a neat looking map! :o

Maybe the living objects deserve to have their own place. Have you ever considered that?

Rolodex

EDIT: Because I know a bunch of y'all are whippersnappers, this is a rolodex



It's what we used for contact lists before computers did that for us.

I'd love to see some 80s corporate shareholders busting out their roller desks to call some high-profile clients.

Janice, get Royce Walthrop on the line! His sprockets are going to be the key to TimTam victory!
Who you calling a whippersnapper? I will let you know that I had only 80% not an idea what a rolodex was!
doing very important work and oh my god i actually just tried to get italics by using a \fi lease stop the text box suffering



erina is actually so extremely black coffee that the rest of the cast cannot hope to reach her. she is a black hole of black coffee... all who dare come near are sucked into a void of emotional turmoil and indie folk

edit: lucian (the dancer lady) would actually totally pull the black coffee move, but where erina would grimly appreciate somebody else doing it, lucian would actually stab them if pulled on her
RMN is back up! Now to see if people are working on....*gets the whip*
Craze, I love how you drum up interest in your game with dumb shit like this. I wanna play - even though I know I'm gonna suffer through long-ass battles, I still wanna play ;.;
