SALT WORLD GAME JAM #1 - SEPTEMBER 15th TO SEPTEMBER 22nd


WOAH!! another salt world game jam!

RULES:
-may work in teams of 1-3 people.
-game can be about anything. a certain gameplay element, your favorite story, your favorite song. anything!
-you can enter in any number of short, medium, or large games (yes, this means you can make multiple games!)
-everything in said game(s) must be completed within september 15th - september 22nd
the rules might increase in other game jams if something goes awry, or something doesn't work.

ENTRIES:
goldenratio -  http://www.saltw.net/index.php?topic=83401
hundley - http://justin.tomatoland.org/VD/Those_Summer_Fields.html


the theme is COOKING! there may seem like limitations to that theme, but i want you to bend those limitations like a stick of warm playdough. try to make a really unique game!


remember! this is supposed to be laid back and fun! don't stress out too much about errors! you have a whole week to make as many tiny games, large games, and even some games that jump on rocks.


have fun!

I have got something, and it looks like something that could only be done within a week with the help of something I wanted to teach myself within a week.

I didn't think I could come up with anything I would want to make, I am glad to be wrong about that. Gotta start on this tonight so I got time to have some fun with it.

Wow I fuckin worked on this game all day... it's pretty good I think. It's small and probably not too much fun, but bwiz I'm glad you did these, I haven't made any games in such a long time this was just what I needed. I'll probably finish it up tomorrow, but hopefully by tomorrow night I'll have my entry in. I don't wanna work on it too long or I'll end up tweaking it forever and breaking it. I'll provide the source if anyone wants it, it's XNA 4.0.

that was me, and i'm not sure if i have the stomach to make a cannibalism game. not to say it couldn't potentially be a delicious topic for a game, but i couldn't really think of a way to pull that off even semi-tastefully.

i wanted to make something last jam but... I couldn't slam with the rest but maybe I can pull this off?

a couple characters from said jam... it'll be a little adventure game. you play as the carrot hippie. the donut slug is the land lord and he's about to kick you out of your pad because he aint chilled enough and you owe him rent($400) the point of the game is to enter a cooking contest to win $400 and pay him back... and win the game?
there will be some weird characters, I haven't even sprited the taco-shelled turtle I sketched at work

swordofkings128: that looks pretty rad! but... if the characters are food, and you are entering a cooking contest... isn't that cannibalism? sounds like hundley's not gonna be the one making a cannibalism game!

also here is a screenshot of the point-and-click game i'm working on~


semper games.

IFF I can finish it before the end date... you'll see. I don't want to spoil much but I want to program a dynamic food system(DFS) where any object found in game can be put in food to make a food. sum music in the game(freshly rendered):

it's for the inside of a bank, but... you'll see.

Here's a preview release of my game: http://gamejolt.com/freeware/games/caveman/download/9690/




I'm going to make a topic eventually but I might work on this some more before the deadline... but if anyone wants to play it here you go, let me know what you think. It's made with XNA4.0 and built against .NET4.0 so if you need any help getting it running let me know, I have no idea if it will even be playable.
