Judging has begun. Find some games with the tags [1HJJ] or [1HGJ]

Goal: Make a game in less than one hour.

-You have exactly 1 hour after the competition ends to submit your games to the Entries Board.
-Your game must include the source code, you may put it under any license you wish for it to be under.
-You must write all code for the game within the time range. This of course excludes boilerplate code/backend stuff, of which you may write before the compo starts.
-You may create resources (Text, Sound, Graphics, any other Art) before the competition starts.
-You may submit your game before the time limit is over, thought it is recommended that you polish your game in whatever time you have left.
-Teams are not allowed.
-It is highly recommended that your game should work on most platforms. (Linux, Windows, Mac OS, etc.)
-You may use any libraries/frameworks to make your game
-You may not update/extend your game after it's finished, though you may fix any bugs in the build that you decide to upload.

Judging:
The winner will be crowned the next day by which game has the most medals.

Theme:
Anything that can be created within a single hour.

Submission:
Submit your game to the Showcase board with this tag in front of the title:
[1HJJ] or [1HGJ]

Shouldn't this be in Contests? I realize not much can be done if a mod isn't on since you want to start soon, but just for reference.

Well I was about to, but then I read the Contest boards and it seemed like it was for a more official contest.

I'm in!

I would start a stream, but I've recently installed another operating system and won't have enough time to get all of that setup :/

Just give us some time to write boilerplate code!

Depending on when we plan on starting, I could. But I'm not prepared at the moment. Maybe in a few hours?

Alright, I'll be in I guess. Why not? Now I have to pick one of my libraries to use...

Edit:
Also, yes wait a couple of hours at the least.

Edit: Damn this thing is fast progressing!

Chat is quite hard to follow so here:
- Any engine/framework/... allowed
- One hour to create the game
- first run: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20140310T19&p0=826&msg=1+Hour+Game+Jam+Start!&csz=1
- possibly weekly jams on saturdays (to be cleared)
- no teams (would not work anyways)

Well, this is actually becoming a thing it seems.  Cheesy

Apparently I'm supposed to make a site for this competition. We plan on doing it every week now, it seems.

Actually, you wouldn't believe how ridiculously fun it was to do.

It put me in a coding rush. I'm constantly coding now.

Around (I think) 7 of us agreed on every week, so I think it'll be quite fun!

Maybe for future competitions, upload your topic to a central competition site and then link it back to the same topic. It seems a bit ridiculous to have 10+ new 1 hour game jam topics per week with about 50 posts in half an hour.
