Hello! In order to celebrate the end of the school year for me and my friends, we are planning a game jam and would love to have you join us online!
It will start [b]May 25 (Friday) at 10 AM MST and end May 26 at 10 AM[/b] [b]MST[/b]. If you have better date suggestions, post here.

A random topic/mechanic will be chosen from the following list, and everyone will base their games on that topic:

-Flight
-Falling
-Light
-Fluids
-Flame/heat
-Jumping
-Wind
-Clouds
-Flinging
-Electricity & magnetism
-Particles
-Paper clip/pen/random object
-Gravity in space
-Projectiles
-Trees
-Rhythm/music
-Technology/Programming
- Growth
- Common sense
- Thrust
- Walking
- Bending/folding

[b]The topic will be announced on this post May 25 at 9:30 AM.[/b]
If anyone sets up a Skype/chat room to socialize, feel free to post it here (and use this board to talk as well).
Game submissions should be posted here as well.

[b]Rules[/b]
-No game engines: all code must be your own besides graphical/multimedia (SFML etc.) and built-in libraries (XNA is OK)
-No adult content: If your game has adult content, warn the player before displaying your game
-You may have a pre built code base (collisions, tile maps, physics etc.) as long as you made it yourself (or your team). Everything but the game can be pre built
-Teams of 4 or less are allowed, but solo is recommended
-All art & music should be made by your team during the jam
[b]Rewards[/b]
-You will gain experience with rapid prototyping and game design
-Possible publicity for your game/team
-A game you can further develop
-Fancy award print offs for Best Tech/Programming, Most Humorous, Highest Quality, Best of Jam, Best Minor, and Most Innovative.
-It will be fun [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]
[b]Entrants[/b]
-All ages and experience: everyone's welcome!

Our goal is to have ~5 teams. If the goal is not met we will still do the game jam (it just won't be as fun). Edited by makuto
