About
The Leeble Game Jam is an event where you work to create a small game based around a theme that's been chosen by the community. You will have from March 1st until March 31st at 11:59pm PST to get as far as you can!

The Theme:
Attention all Leebles, your theme for the 2018 Leeble Game Jam is... Love and Hate
And as with previous years, I've decided to include an optional sub-theme: the runner-up for this year's nominations, which is: SPIDERS!!

Prizes:

As with events like NaNoWriMo and Ludum Dare, the main prize is your product. To quote the Ludum Dare website:

Quote
...you have a game now. What are you going to do with it?

Our first Game Jam in 2015! (http://www.supershigi.com/forums/index.php?topic=1218.0).

Good advice about jamming from Alice (http://www.supershigi.com/forums/index.php?topic=1179.msg27244#msg27244)

Leeble Academy (http://www.supershigi.com/forums/index.php?topic=1183.0) - A place to ask questions, post information, and learn about all things related to game development!

Discord Server (https://discord.gg/8fhEqFq) - Throughout the jam, please feel free to use our Discord Server to chat! Ask questions, vent about a bug that's driving you nuts, share how excited you are that you got the menu working, or just support one another!

Dev Logs (http://www.supershigi.com/forums/index.php?board=12.0) - Each person participating in the jam will be allowed to create their own dev log for their game. You can use this as your personal space to brainstorm, share what you're working on (screenshots, general ideas, code, etc.), and give us updates on how it's going! But remember... as I mentioned in this thread: ***the game itself should be your central focus! I've seen far too many examples on rpg maker forums where people spend exorbitant amounts of time making their thread look flashy and pretty, and they never finish anything. The thread is to help propel the game, not the other way around ^_^

I'm confident I want to take part. Maybe I'll finally pick up that idea of a leeble themed cookie clicker?

Hmm. I haven't really been active since last game jam. I got the email about this one and it made me want to spend more time here - especially now that there's a discord server! I'll be joining that shortly.

So hello again everyone, long time no see~

I nominate SPIDERS as the theme.

Ooh lots of good suggestions! I'll add those + the jammers to the OP :)

Hi Charybdizs! It's good to see you again! I feel guilty because I haven't really been active since last jam, either - Things just got so busy with work, moving, etc. so my goal for this year is to try and be more active at the forums, hold more events, and just be part of the community again! Anyways, welcome back! And hope you like our Discord server^^

So quotes don't work and I can't remember the quote tags, I'm pretty sure it's just bracket-quote-close_bracket but whatever, bare with me here... ahem~

"You’re free to use 3rd party Artwork/Music/Audio assets, or assets you previously created, so long as you have the legal right to do so (do not use resources such as art ripped from commercial games, or film soundtracks)."

How come this has been a rule this whole time and I -NEVER- took advantage and started super early on graphics? I mean, it's graphics that take up my whole time, and make me go "Welp, don't havae time to design a game now" and I coulda been doing half a month of graphics & stuff beforehand?
...dammit...

Sign me the heck up! I'm really excited, I've been experiencing a lot of emotions surrounding gamedev/creativity over the last few months. I have some ideas for concepts to integrate into a game, but I don't feel like they would make good themes. I like the themes so far (some of you guys might know that I'm big into speedrunning, so thanks kreyg :P ), and while I can't think of any ideas right now, I'll definitely edit this/make a new post in the thread if I come up with anything.

I swear I do NOT have time for this. I do NOT have time for this Q_Q

My roommate was just talking last night about wanting to experiment with RPGMaker, though... I'm gonna make him sign up for the forums!

He will be a-Leeble-similated!

*EDIT*
And I would like to nominate "Love and Hate" as a theme.

Attention all Leebles, your theme for the 2018 Leeble Game Jam is... "Love and Hate"
And as with previous years, I've decided to include an optional sub-theme: the runner-up for this year's nominations, which is: SPIDERS!!

The Jam officially begins tomorrow, March 1st, 2018 (or tonight at midnight if you're so inclined) so good luck to everyone participating!

Don't forget that everyone participating in the Jam is invited to make their own project thread in the Dev Logs section (http://www.supershigi.com/forums/index.php?board=12.0) which you can update throughout (and even after) the event if you'd like. Feel free to post any questions you have here, and most importantly: have fun!

Hey. I won't continue working on the game for the jam because of internet problems. I'm really sorry, but the issue began 2 weeks ago and the ISP won't fix it. Though, I'd like to join next year. I'm using cellular for sending this. It's a shame, because I really liked the idea of working on this. But I'll join next year.

Sincerely

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I've received your games and I'm excited to start putting together the official Jam thread so other folks can see the various projects (and hopefully play them as well)!

You folks did a fantastic job, and I'm truly impressed by all the hard work and creativity. GO LEEBLES!!
