  1. WIZARD JAM X - Welcome Thread

    The finale? Wow! That seems fitting...and I've got something that absolutely fits that theme that I've been brewing! Thanks to Wizard Jam, I started making games, and my life is much improved! Let's do this! Get all your Dot Gobbler lore out there while you still can!
  2. That's right! The rowboat and robot (and the skulls/bones) are 2d sprites made in a voxel program, Magicka3d, which is also where I made the 3d models I imported for the walls, non-roboted rowboat, dock, etc. I'll keep posting here and may actually be pretty close to a release!
  3. er....is it weird to keep posting here if I seemingly have no respect for the actual Wizard Jam dates anymore, haha? I guess this game is connected to the jam, even when the jam isn't happening? Here's a robot in a rowboat.
  4. Hmm...um I guess it's his arms replaced by engines? Will they fly around? I think it would be cool to have a real angry intimidating Goro-like monster to shirt. He's so mad and the only thing that makes him happy is novelty clothing.
  5. Oh man, awesome! I thought you gave the eyes their own shirts for a sec. Are some of those eyes jet engines...? FPS is in the middle of a revival right now, and I think this is just a wild enough idea that you could get some real traction with it if you developed it some more. It's a genius way of making a non-violent shooter.
  6. Ha, yeah...my joke there is basically: "Art!....get it?" and I have no idea why or even if it's a real joke, but I can't not do it. A slave to art, me.
  7. [ON INDEFINITE HOLD] Pub Crawler

    I scrolled down to look through the pics first, as you do...and thought "classic dungeon, great! Wait, what's the theme again?" then scrolled up and saw it was supposed to be a bar and laughed. Perfect setting for a dungeon crawl! Please continue with this! I need this game to exist!
  8. Impressive. Though when I hearing "walking an unfamiliar city alone" I (wrongly?) think of it as a calming experience. And this looks like a multicolored impossible maze which would stress anyone out. Seems like you could start this like "a calming walk. Doesn't that sound nice?" then move into "wrong! This is actually a hell you are trapped in!" Fun stuff! Those buildings look cool.
  9. So good! I like the idea of an aimless Papers Please where it's not especially clear what you should be doing. Also, organizing tweets on paper and anachronistic machines to highlight their stupidity is good work!
  10. Great! For some reason it looks like one of those platformers developed exclusively for the PC. I guess a Keen-alike? I especially love that rock-like dino down in the screens!
  11. [Release] Shoehorned

    Oh man that little marshmallow scrambler is my favorite! Looks cool. And I think there's a certain breed of streamer that loves Getting Over It and similar games so you should make it as hard as possible!
  12. Looks awesome. The art is very pleasing and reminds me of Sonic. I like the idea that if Namco had made Pac-Man a platformer, they might've actually made Sonic the HedgeHog like 10 years earlier.
  13. Ok ok...I gotta get rolling on this. Here is a bone sea! Also this tower is involved in some mysterious way... I won't finish this by the deadline, but may be trying to wake up the #wizardjam community in a few weeks/months time for a release at a decidedly non-Wizard time...As I'm into this right now, and want to finish it!
  14. Game is going amazingly well. Getting lots of stuff in...but a lot of it is not showy or is kinda spoilery stuff about the mechanics/puzzles. I think during the jam I'll be able to finish You can now pick up and drop stuff! It was a flute but I said "pipe" because I couldn't resist this dumb art joke (will make a little more sense in the game context). It also looks like a key which turns into an unintentional hint! I'm making a first person game and my first idea was to make it a graphic adventure, ha.
  15. Thanks everyone! Ya, that's where my mind went when I played Munch's Oddysee back in the day too! Does it actually look like a G or is it the power of suggestion? Haha! I did make the font though so it's not perfect. It's fine if they see that. I think, at the least, it's meant to be a goofy word for a thing to collect. I should have more later today!
