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 February 1st until February 28th at 11:59pm PST to get as far as you can!
  • You’re free to use any tools or engines to create your game (Game Maker, RPG Maker, Unity, etc.). You’re free to start with any base-code you may have.
  • 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).
  • You must be registered at the forum in order to participate. To sign up, post in this thread.
  • Games should not contain adult content.
  • You can work individually or as part of a small team.

Theme Nominating/Voting:
  • Attention all Leebles, you have until Monday the 28th at 11:59pm PST to nominate a theme by posting in this thread.
  • Afterwards, a poll will appear here to vote on that theme. You'll have until Thursday the 31st at 11:59pm PST to vote.

Prizes:

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

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


The being said... there may be special awards given... ;)

Spoiler for Helpful Stuff:
Our first Game Jam in 2015!.

Good advice about jamming from Alice

Leeble Academy - A place to ask questions, post information, and learn about all things related to game development!

Discord Server - 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 - 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.

I shall make an attempt at this! Although due to starting a new job my guess is I'll have to scope down my aspirations xD

My theme nomination is "cute but deadly"

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?

b) https://youtu.be/C-u5WLJ9Yk4?t=59
c) https://youtu.be/KolfEhV-KiA?t=19

(I'm in, I won't lose this definitively! My topic? Jelly )

Theme nomination: Something Old, Something New.

Don't think I can participate in the game jam itself unfortunately, but I'll happily throw out a theme!

Cute, yet twisted
Something will be here. Eventually.

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.
