RandJAM 2012

  • October 19, 2012 · 7:00 PM

The Oslo Mega Games Collective invite you to the very first and finest RandJAM 2012!

 

The format is simple. We arm ourself with random word generators to construct constraints for the games we will make.

Random verbs will guide our mechanic,
random adjectives, will guide our paint!

When you first arrive, you'll mingle a bit, then get your random words either as a team or individual.

Then within an intense hour,you figure out what genre or mix of genres your game will be set in.

If unable to choose, you will be given a genre by random. If that did not help on your creativity, the last and final option, is to go the the "random remake"-lottery , and pick a random old game you have to remake/remix.

*Oh, and team-changing is very much encouraged. If you think someone else has a brilliant idea, and you have a skill they need, talk with them and join forces! The Jam is social!

Deadline is 15:00 on sunday.

We will do game presentations at 16:00 :

 

Who can enter?

It is open for teams, singles, and robots too!

No constraints when it comes to sourcing your material, use old sound libraries, old code, new code, crazy models, google image search, and everything you have at hand. Go, shortest path to the goal, to create a random game.

(of course, if you steal every asset, you might need to be careful if you want to release it online after the jam)

    It's getting close. Bring indie spirits. Bring happiness. I will try to loan a decent camera to document our coolness, so bring your good looks too ;)

      Yes. Any tools can be used IIUC, as far as its not something crazy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
