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/ED9RMYu) - 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 ^_^

Hoorayyyy, it's finally here!

Playing Super Smash Bros. over Christmas always gets me thinking about Dr. Mario, because they made the one game and never another, but I always really liked the design of the little virus guys. One fun thing: his version of Classic Mode has you going up against teams of three with one red, one yellow, and one blue version of the same character in each match. It was a cute way of giving things a Dr. Mario kinda flavor.

So! Since it's on my mind, I'll make, "Three different-colored versions of the same thing," my theme nomination so I can scratch that itch. Should give us a lot of lee-way in how to handle things, which is all a good theme really needs. If it's an RPG, maybe there are three different gems, if it's an action game then maybe the main character can get three power-ups that are different colors, if you want to make a card game, maybe there are three different suits, etc.

TLDR: Nominating "Three different-colored versions of the same thing" as a theme.

EN.I's EPIC QUEST
TIME PLAYED 05:21                                  
SCORE 0 OF 127

EN.I wants to register, but he's not sure about what engine to use. He needs to choose something before the world ends. One choose is the correct, the other will throw you to a world of suffering and despair. What road do will choose?

I'll definitely join in the jam. And I'll nominate Bufkus, because the idea of a load of Bufkus spin-off titles is simply delightful.

@kami: Not too late to vote for your favorite nominated theme

Let me try my hand at this jam thingie.

I'll definitely join in the jam. And I'll nominate Bufkus, because the idea of a load of Bufkus spin-off titles is simply delightful.
I definitely can get behind the Bufkus theme :D

Good luck all

Attention all Leebles, your theme for the 2019 Leeble Game Jam is... "Wishes"

(https://media1.tenor.com/images/1f9981080a58aa85b83f3bd455b73ad9/tenor.gif?itemid=8813922)

And as with previous years, I've decided to include an optional sub-theme: Bufkus!!

(https://lparchive.org/Rakuen/Update%2030/27-update30_0295.png)

The Jam officially begins tomorrow, February 1st, 2019 (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!

Sorry, I'm out. During the last month, I couldn't even get to start working on the game, yet about finishing it. Last year I whipped something up quickly in the last few hours, but remembering the immerse shame of putting out an unplayable game for a month-long game jam, I won't do it again. My standards are now higher than that.

I got a new job, which is a great thing, but it also means that now I have no free time or private life. It seems you can only have time or money in life, but not both at once. This is a huge problem for me.

Hope I will be able to truly participate in the next jam. (If I won't be banned for flaking out on this one.)

It seems you can only have time or money in life, but not both at once. This is a huge problem for me.

That's why more and more people talk about the Basic Income Grant. There aren't enough jobs for everyone, so the salaries drop and the working conditions worsen until history repeats itself and a revolution happens. The BIG would turn the tables. We can provide for everyone's needs, but not for everyone's greed, hence capitalism preaches that making money has to be tough.
