For the Month of July, GOTCHA is running a little game jam/contest - There will be 3 meetups throughout the month focused on designing a game from scratch, each participant will be designing their own prototype, and we will be playtesting all of the prototypes in early August. Anyone is welcome to join, and the rules are simple:
Your game must be entirely yours, and must be a prototype that has not had substantial work prior to the beginning of July.
Your game must be playable (though certainly not ready for publishing or anything of the sort) by the beginning of August.
Meetings will focus on collective feedback on individual mechanics, and helping each other get through 'problem' areas.
All that's needed for the first meeting is just some concept that you want to bring to the table that the group can sink it's teeth into a little.
