  1. WIZARD JAM X - Welcome Thread

    Hmm I think you might be the first to mention it!
  2. WIZARD JAM X - Welcome Thread

    Honestly, being reminded that there's a sizeable bunch of people who have started making games as a result of wizard jam is the most satisfying thing to me. Thanks for making the last five years of doing these so memorable, folks. ❤
  3. WIZARD JAM X - Welcome Thread

  4. [Release] Shoehorned (renamed All Must Fall)

    This is incredibly exciting to watch develop
  5. https://itch.io/jam/wizard-jam-7 Hello and welcome! Wizard Jam is the bi-annual Idle Thumbs community-run game jam. Wizard Jam is not a contest; the main emphasis is to celebrate the Thumbs community through sharing and collaboration over the course of a fortnight. We write devlogs and post GIFs. We offer support and volunteer music, sounds and other assets. We play each other's games and stream them. It's a lot of fun. The other thing we try to emphasise is encouraging people to try making something new and unfamiliar; or to try game development for the first time entirely (quite a few of the entries we've had in the past are from complete first-timers to gamedev!). We run the jam over the course of two weeks to give people the room to try something weird and see how it turns out. Use this subforum to make development log threads, recruit folks, and chat about development related stuff! There's also the game development subforum and the #wizardjam slack channel. If you aren't a already a member of the slack group and would like an invite, send me a private message at @zerofiftyone and I will make sure you get access. Wizard Jam - Friday 8th June to Sunday 24th June Showcase Weekend - Saturday 30th June to Sunday 1st July Choose an episode title from any show on the Idle Thumbs podcast network and use it as a theme prompt for your game. Use this site to browse through show titles: http://randomthumbs.danjohnmoran.com/ (Thanks to Broxxar, Panzorfork & matt.ishii for providing the site) This jam is not a competition, and there is no minimum level of game development experience needed to join. People from all backgrounds are welcome to participate. If you're new to gamedev, let us know! Join us on the forums and on Slack; where you'll find help, advice and encouragement from the community. Entries containing any form of harassment or hate-speech are not permitted. Anything crossing into this territory will be removed. After the jam finishes, we'll be hosting Showcase Weekend; an opportunity for everybody to step back from the game making process and look at what everyone else has made; with an emphasis on giving feedback and comments to fellow creators. It's covered in the schedule below, and there'll be more details to follow.

  6. [(Somewhat) Released] Build the Nublar Evolved

    Yeah same. In fact, I think I've moved twice since then.
  7. [(Somewhat) Released] Build the Nublar Evolved

    I was actually thinking of your Rich Uncle Cool Uncle game just the other day, and that's even older!
  8. [Dev Log] Mystery of the Ravens

    This is cool! Very nice to see this collab happen
  9. [dev log] A Wish Upon A Star

    Great stuff, it's starting to look like an actually satisfying puzzle!
  10. [Dev Log] To Me, To Me, To Me

    This is a really great idea for a unique control scheme.
  11. [(Somewhat) Released] Build the Nublar Evolved

    This style is so good! Also wow, was the original made during Wizard Jam 2?! That feels like so long ago now!
  12. [dev log] A Wish Upon A Star

    Love this. Currently reminds me a little of a game I played for IGF called No Place. Excited to see where you go with it

    Ahhh that sounds like a fun time
  14. This thread is for folks seeking a team to work with!

You can also drop by the #wizardjam channel on the Idle Thumbs Slack and chat with people to find teammates. Or just drop in and chit-chat with us while you're working on your game! And if you find a team, please edit your post and note that. This is the team seeking/LFG thread; if you have a game idea and want to recruit people, use the recruiting/LFM thread. Format: What I'm Doing: What you're able to contribute and your experience level Contact Info: Your contact info (PM, email, whatever) And optionally: Time Zone: It's probably easier to work with people who aren't 12 hours off from you? But maybe it's fine. Portfolio: A link to your portfolio / website / whatever if you have one, so people can check your style. Then whatever else you want. Example: What I'm Doing: Programming; I'm a web developer and don't know any game engines but would like to learn. Contact info: PM me on the forums or message me on the Idle Thumbs Slack Time Zone: EST (UTC -5) but I'm usually up late Portfolio: I've never made a video game but here's my website! www.puffin.biz I've been programming for a long time and am a terrible artist, I'd like to team up with someone who has a little Unity experience that can help teach me and also do art. Willing to work 24 hours a day for 2 weeks straight and my cat can do a perfect Wario impression.

But maybe it's fine. Portfolio: A link to your portfolio / website / whatever if you have one, so people can check your style. Then whatever else you want. Example: Pitch: I wanna make 'You, Fisher', a 3D stealth fishing game about casting lines without being spotted by security, and catching as many fish as possible before sunrise. I want to learn UE4 and C++ What I Need: 3D artist who can animate some fish (and help with design!) Audio person to make some sneaky music and fish noises. Smoky jazz? What I'm doing: Programming in UE4, Sam Fisher impressions Contact info: PM me on the forums or message me on the Idle Thumbs Slack Time Zone: EST (UTC -5) but I'm usually up late Portfolio: Here's my website with some gifs of other games I've made! www.puffin.biz I've been a fan of Splinter Cell since first seeing screenshots of their dynamic shadows in ~2005 and I have a Sam Fisher bust above my fireplace. I'd like the game to have a light stealth system, fully rigged realistic humanoid characters, and a dynamic music system that's entirely early-2000s style drum and bass but made exclusively out of samples of water splashing and seagull noises.
