3 STAR GAME JAM - NOV 26-28

Posted by ninjamuffin99 - November 25th, 2022


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!!!


MAKE SOMETHING!!!


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!!!

I am doing this

Bro this is exactly what I needed rn

PULL UUUP

Question tho. How should we submit this to you? Like dm you the game when we're done?

just post it on newgrounds with tag 3starjam

@ZabuJard I Need Your Expertises

Man I wanna do this but I've never programed anything but I guess there's a first for everything

LOL

holy shit the prize is newgrounds supporter? alright I'm into this

I made mid once, I can certainly make it again!

This is gonna be so FUCKING MID!

Got me downloading software I’ve never seen

bro on his clickteam studio arc

Time to make the “middle” game

ive used scratch once….
time to try again

Can I ask for 5 stars

yes

Time to harness my mid abilities, i've been training my whole life for this

Honestly, this is a great direction and motivation for a game jam. Just making something for the sake of making something and getting better is the best reason to do a jam, and the usual contest to make the best game contradicts that. Wish I had time to participate in this!

make something in 3 hours, GO

@Chdonga looookkkkkkkkkk

i maybe try
