AJSA Game Jam?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys. I was wondering whether a game jam on this site would be possible, perhaps in the forums. If you don't know, a game jam is where game developers (usually indies) are given a set amount of time to make a game around a certain theme. I think it'd be cool for Angry Joe to pick a theme, then in a forum topic or something devs could post their games. 

This is just a rough idea, and since I'm only a fan of AJ I, personally, wouldn't have the ability to pull it off. I think it's a cool idea though and was wondering whether or not anyone who visits here regularly would like it too. Let me know what you think.

This would be cool but organizing Game Jams is a pain in the butt. I organized one on Newgrounds (IndieGames Twitter account featured one of them!) and it was a pain because the odd amount of people made making teams hard since it was random so random teams is a bad idea. I'm sure Angry Joe could pull it off though.

It would probably work better if we planned it out so people joined in teams and not solo

You would need a lot of people that:

1)know what they are doing;

2)have teams already planned;

3)know how to cooperate.

It would be hard to organize, but if you can pull it off or find someone who can, you'll/he'll have my support in any way.

It's an interesting idea, but you first need to find someone very knowledgeable on the subject. If that person could be found, I would likely enjoy it.
