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).

Most of the monster overworld sprites was made by Avee. Along with redone battle portraits.


I edited Pipoya's battlebacks.

A question, does parallel map have to be completely new in terms of event/ tile-mapping?
(Map isn't premade except art itself unless graphical edits are allowed)
*sweats nervously*

really happy with what's been made as a base for a much larger game. the contest version is def coming out and hopefully will provide some emotionz but ;V it's nowhere near what i had hoped to finish. OH WELL, sleep is important.
You're not alone Craze, we have a nice base, but kinda slowed down a lot the last weeks so we're not gonna make it for the deadline. Alas, the TIM TAMS WILL NOT BE OURS.
And here you were saying that you were the only true winner of timtams. I'll admit to a bit of disappointment but then again, thems the breaks.
