We are in the process of developing a site for that exact reason, we realized it was stupid to be posting every week. Sorry!

It was a fun game jam. Not sure if 1 hour is enough but most people seemed to do fine. It's probably a good idea to have an idea of what to do before starting as well.

I suggested that the time limit increase by an hour each week (to a point, at which it resets or something) to add an interesting dynamic, a Weekly Incremental Jam, and I believe that's what they're going with. Confirmation guys?

Why not a random allocation of time decided at the start?

Preparation. It sort of is random, it's just not decided at the very start of the compo.

We actually have a plan for MiniLD #50. We all thought about trying to make demakes of games we really like, but only in 5-6 hours.

No idea how that will work out.

I feel like this would be less fun than an incremental method, as you might have ideas for a design, but then the time is announced and a) you abort your idea because it was too complex/too simple, or b) you go for it anyway and are crushed.

An incremental build of both time constraint and anticipation of results of that constraint is more likely to be fun IMHO.

Oh we will Gibbo! We all had a great time last night, so we will be hosting another jam this Saturday. (at least that's what we voted on Wink Deomcracy!) The cool part about the jam is that the length increases by an hour (?) each consecutive jam, so this weekend will be 2 hours long!

So get your graphics libraries ready Wink

We'll have a winner next time, last night was more of a trial run to figure out how the jam is going to work. We realized quickly our current rating system (medals) isn't going to work out!

So who will vote?
Would suggest to make it an internal thing, where every participant makes a ranking list and all get compared to one...
And maybe some additional, less weighted external input...

Does the library/framework have to be opensource?
Offline Drenius

Another suggestion:
Use whatever pre-made stuff you want, but make sure you upload it before the jam starts (... ?)

That should be a rule. I don't believe the library has to be open source, but you should at least tell other people what you are using and the library shouldn't be to "over powered". But without a decent library an hour jam is hopeless!

I believe we voted on having people voting on which game is the best, and whoever gets the most votes wins!

Participants can rate other games, but they can't rate the games that they did.
Don't make it internal so other users can also participate.
Also, it is "unfair" to give to every participant medals for a simple 1 hour game. We must change this.
My option: Create some vote thread (I don't know if this is possible on this forum, if not, lets use some online site that can do this for us, for example this one. The winner is the participant with more votes. And the "reward", hummm, maybe every participant give medals to the winner.

I said above we are migrating from JGO because spamming medals isn't a good idea. Kpars (Jeviny in the IRC) is the web dev in charge of creating our jam site!

What would be a good time to do the next round (and hopefully future ones)?
Keep in mind that there are differences of even 12h for some people.

On the topic of IRC, I apologize for not being in the channel to chat! I was sleeping. I should be there to talk, now!

But yes, the issue with medals will be fixed before the jam on Saturday starts.

Luckily, Jimmt said we can keep the shiny medals that we currently got from the last competition. Grin

The decision fell on this.

Jev is currently creating the website so the next jam will probably be hosted there.

Perhaps don't have a set competition time and set a day on which to do the hour, and judge them after that day.

We all have overlapping timezones, but not everyone's overlap in the same place.

We discussed that way, but decided not to use it, because it would splinter the whole thing a lot.

Next competition should start tomorrow! I found somebody who can temporarily host the website until I can get some things at Kemoy fixed.

We're still having some issues with time zones. If any one of you have any ideas, please leave a reply to this message, as we're trying to find something everybody can agree on.

If you want to chat with us now, Here's a link to the IRC: http://webchat.esper.net/?channels=#WIJGames

EDIT: If you join the IRC Channel, please use your JGO name. Nicks will not be tolerated.
