Congratulations to the winners of fgl Game Jam #30!

1st Place - Quantic Pulse by Racines

2nd Place - Endless Hellhole by Dreamscape

3rd Place - Round-A-Bout by Bryce

Want More Points? 

To earn 100 fgl Community Points, integrate Enhance™ Ads into your mobile app* at enhance.fgl.com in less than a minute with no source code and then answer the optional follow-up question in the Judges Poll for Game Jam #30!

The Enhanced app does not need to be a Game Jam entry.

* This process usually takes less than 1 minute with zero coding!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Everyone who offers decent feedback for the games in the Game Jam entries thread will receive up to 50 fgl Community Points!

Start/End:

Started: July 31st @ 3pm Pacific    Ended: August 3rd @ 3pm Pacific

Game Jam Theme:

Endless

Contest Rules: (Please follow the rules to avoid being disqualified!)

  • Game entry must be visible to all users with a Community Level of at least 1. (share your work!)
  • 72 hours to create a game
  • Game must work on fgl.com or fgl's mobile app (game can be mobile or web)
  • The theme needs to be central to the game. We mean it.
  • DO NOT request approval for your entry until after judging (and your game) is complete; You are unlikely to sell licenses to a prototype in the Bidding Marketplace, so there is no benefit to being approved until the game is complete.

How to Enter:

All participants will upload their entries to fgl and post a link in the entries thread. Any game entered or altered after the deadline will be disqualified!

Judging:

  • Prizes are usually awarded shortly after the winners are announced
  • fgl Admins may participate in the jam, but will be bypassed when awarding prizes
  • Judging will be split between fgl staff and YOU! Any inaccessible games will be played/recorded by fgl staff and a video posted as the entry.
    • Judging begins shortly after the jam ends. Follow us on Twitter @FGL_Team or here to register your votes!
  • Winners will be announced 48-72 hours after judging begins.

Prizes:

1st Place - Quantic Pulse by Racines

  • Community Spotlight Interview about your studio/process/whatever!

Shamelessly plugging the 'Pants / No Pants' theme:

https://www.fgl.com/poll.php?poll_id=33

Because I'd like to have a Pants Jam.  We're all invited to the Pants Jam.

Started working on mine with Aron Ato, we're taking the "Endless" part a bit literally, but I think we'll turn out something decent :)

Hehe, that's awesome! Just be sure to keep it super simple to give yourself a chance to finish in time!

Also, a quick note @everyone: we'd love to hear about your progress as you go, either here, Twitter, or FB, so feel free to share screenshots/gifs of fun progress/bugs/whatever and we'll pass it on to the rest of the community! Smile

Is it a 72 hours jam? Timer shows that is more than two days left.

Also, you forgot to inform http://gamedev.ru , where i found out about those gjs in due time :)

p.s.: Good theme. Sadly, i won't be able to participate this time :/

tgfantomass - Yup! It is indeed a 72 hour jam that runs from Friday @ 3pm to Monday @ 3pm. Also apologies for missing the post on gamedev.ru! We've been trying to get better about announcing these jams everywhere that we can think to post and will continue striving towards that goal.

For future reference, we will almost always announce the jams in these forums, on Twitter as @FGL_Team, and in our Newsletter/Blog (depending on release date). Hopefully ya'll can help spread the news in communities like gamedev.ru that we miss! Smile

SuperHlor - Welcome to fgl and to your first Game Jam! Please let me know if you're still having trouble after checking out the link tgfantomass provided. It is currently written specifically for Game Jam #29, but you can follow that process with the links in this thread to get everything sorted.

Word of advice, keep the game SUPER SIMPLE to be sure you finish in time!

nigmashumma - Nice! It definitely can be hard (and helpful!) to get your head out of a current project to do some rapid prototyping.

@ everyone - Good luck and have fun!

FGL_Aaron,

Yes, it was very helpful! But next time I'll finish in time. Will post current game out off jam (if it is finished) soon.
