Hello again, friendly people! In case you're not on the Slack or Discord, I am running a new game jam in the spirit of Wizard Jam for Nick's streaming community (https://www.twitch.tv/idlethumbs... you might know it!) We are starting this next Thursday, The Fools Day, and working all through the first 3 weeks of April, finishing up before the end of the month, and then having Nick & others stream in May. Much like Wizard's Jam past but now annual and slightly longer & tweaked. The spirit of Dot Gobbler remains, folks are encouraged to contribute however they can and try new things. Really whatever you want to do or create to have Nick or pals experience on stream. No worries bout finishing either. Just good vibes and friends makin fun stuff~~ COME JOIN US More details can be found here: https://itch.io/jam/jam-baby-jam-2021
Hello everyone! After having to drop out of last Wizard Jam due to unforeseen circumstances, I've been running without a goal for the last month or so. That's why I'm excited to detail a new project, which I'm tentatively calling "The Thumbs Project." Essentially, I'm going to be writing one short interactive story a week, each one based off of a title from Idle Thumbs. There are a couple of reasons I'm doing this: I need practice writing on a deadline, and what better deadline to practice than weekly installments? I need more practice with alternative forms of interactive fiction besides the traditional choose-your-own adventure format, and while there's definitely going to be plenty of those, I'm looking to try and broaden my horizons. Like I hinted at earlier, I felt bad about not being able to complete anything for Wizard Jam, even though I really like the idea of basing games off of Thumbs titles (There's so many good ones!) Right now, the most I can commit to is the first fifty episodes. Even then, that's a whole year of making fun-sized IF, assuming I manage to get it together to put one out every week. If I can do it, and I'm enjoying doing it, we might see about doing more, but right now that's too far in the future to get excited about. What do you guys think? Any questions or advice? Criticism is always appreciated. If you're interested, the first game Let the Games Begin will be going up on my itch.io page tomorrow afternoon (EST) here https://technomagie.itch.io
