I also agree with the suggested themes and motifs. A little guidance can be helpful. Halloween would be a really fun theme too.

I agree with the theme. There should at least be some standard so we'd have a handle on the judging.

I think we should generate 3 themes so that one can be announced at the start of the comp so that it's fair to say games were started at the start of the jam. Or not. We could just have an honesty policy! Or not, and just be glad we're getting some games.

More details will be posted on a SW-JAM mini site, which will go live in the next few days but in the mean time feel free to PM me your theme suggestions (already mentioned theme noted).

samhain is the most video gamey holiday (big collection of inexplicable monster archetypes commercially divorced from origins, tiny collectables, dont go into the house on the wisteria corner or y'oull wake up screaming.... or worse,...... dead....) and i likd the sound of having an optional theme like so
 
i will participate

I'm thinking it will run from Saturday 12 - Sunday 20th Sept to allow for flexibility and for people to go beyond just gimmick games.

Sorry I meant 14-22, the columns on android confused me (quite easy to confuse me).

I... I might actually try to enter this. but no promises. I'll probably still have work at that point and if so I may be out of fucks to give as my job saps my energy to near nil.
