Welcome to Charas Game club; a month long game jam.
From Friday the 13th of June to Sunday the 6th of July we'll be jamming up games. You won't have to spend the whole month jamming if you don't feel like it or don't have time. Take a week, weekend, day, hour or minute.
There won't be any limit to the number of games you can submit; make a deep rich rpg maker game or a series of small high score based mini-games, it's all up to you.
Once the month is up I figured we could take all the finished games and create Charas Game Bundle (#1). We'll take a screenshots write a sentence or two about each games and post them with download link as a news post on the main site. (Haven't checked this with mods/admins but hope it won't be a problem).
Feel free to use whatever you like to make your game. It's okay to reuse code, graphics and other resources you made in the past (and other peoples resources as long as you have their permission). Heck, if you got an old unfinished game lying around feel free to dust it off and finish it now.
As any good jam we will be having a theme. Following the theme won't be strictly enforced feel free to do your awesome game idea or finish up that old game project without having to cram in the theme. It's there for inspiration and sparking ideas.
If you need some inspirations/motivations/something to watch while eating here some talks about making games:
