1st ANNUAL 3 STAR GAME JAM
NOVEMBER 26 TO 28 2022
HELLO NEWGROUNDS, we need more game jams, and I put a little too much effort into game jams nowadays. I need to get back to my damn roots where I would shit out a game jam in a weekend to polish design and development skills. So this is a GAME JAM where you NEED to make a game that gets as close to a 3 STAR RATING as possible on Newgrounds.
If you’re a programmer, maybe you got some good design chops, but shitty art, try making your own art!!! If you’re an artist, maybe it’s time to try programming a small game featuring your own art style, even if it’s buggy and broken!! If you get under 3 stars, oh well, you got a game out! You get more than 3 stars, maybe you underestimated your own talents / skills!
BUT THE GOAL IS TO TRY AND GET AS CLOSE TO A 3 STAR RATING AS POSSIBLE!!!
DON’T HAVE CRAZY AMBITIONS!!!
DON’T MAKE SOMETHING THAT APPEALS TO EVERYONE!!!
MAKE SOMETHING POLARIZING, MAKE SOMETHING MEDIOCRE!!
MAKE SOMETHING FOR THE SAKE OF MAKING SOMETHING!!!
THE POINT IS TO MAKE SOMETHING OKAY ENOUGH TO GET THROUGH JUDGEMENT AND NOT BE COMPLETE SHIT, BUT ALSO YOU DON’T NEED TO REACH FOR THE STARS!!!
In other words, it’s easy to get caught up in your thoughts about things. Views, scores, ratings, favorites. This is a jam to neglect all of those thoughts. You’re not making something for views, ratings, or even for people to like it. Make a game to simply make a game. It may sound ironic, but even the 3 star rating doesn’t matter. What matters is that you’re in the spirit to make a damn game, and get it out. To not be afraid of ratings and not beat yourself up about anything like that. Make SOMETHING and put it out onto the site. Make something that is worth rating 3 stars on Newgrounds. No more, no less.
RULES AND STUFF
MAKE A GAME THAT GETS TO 3 STAR RATING ON NEWGROUNDS AS POSSIBLE!!
November 26th to November 28th (Saturday start of day to Monday end of day, very loose, as long as u get a game out by end of monday-ish)
There will be an OPTIONAL theme. The main goal should be making a 3 star rated game, if you wanna be a psycho and start early with no theme, be my guest, but do you really want to spend more than a single weekend on a 3 star game? Lol
THE OPTIONAL THEME: WOMAN
THAT'S IT, LITERALLY WOMAN, INTERPRET ANY WAY YOU'D WANT
Collaborations are fully welcome and encouraged!! It’s always fun to make something with pals!!!
Since I’m the one callin the shots here… your game NEEDS to have public source code somewhere. Github, Google Drive, mega, i dont care where it’s hosted… just
PUBLIC SOURCE CODE is a REQUIREMENT!!!
NO ASKING PEOPLE TO RATE 3 STARS, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, DONT BE CHEEKY BITCH
I will give 1 year NG supporter status to five of the “most 3 star worthy” games. Up to my own personal judgement... lol!!!
