I never participate in this kind of contests because 48 hours seems way too short.

Apparently, some people can make games in half of that :O

Hehe, we thought we'd try something a bit different with the contest length this time to see how devs fair. Smile

Imo, this is actually a great way to practice your rapid prototyping skills and hopefully you'll have a finished prototype of a viable game by the end of the competition! However, if this is a hurdle to participating, we'll keep the 24 hour game jams to a minimum in the future. 

Now's a great time to get your game engines ready! Laughing

Awesome! Hopefully I'll be able to participate this time around, thanks for giving more notice!

It will be interesting indeed to see how everyone does with only 24 hours -- sounds fun :).

Can we do a team project on this, or is it an singular competition?

Yup! Teams are allowed, but the prizes will only go to the account that submitted the game. :)

I enjoyed the last one, and I love that it is going to be 24 hours. I am anxious to see what I can accomplish in that time frame. I would also like to see one longer than 48 hours in the future to see what everybody can make in a limited time with a little more polish.

Despite not having much to show for it, I did have fun last time. The biggest problem I face is coming up with a decent idea. Whether I can manage that and make it a reality within 24 hours remains to be seen.

Now we wait until the games begin.

That's what I'm banking on for the easy W.  Zero competition.

I'd be interested in working with you, but unfortunatelly this event coincides with http://globalgamejam.org/ , and there is an onsite participation in my town I'm attending.

Yeah I only just heard of the global jam yesterday. To bad there is a location about an hour drive from where I am. I would have loved to go and see if I can meet any good people to work with.
