4 Hour Game Dev


Jam #1 : 17 March, 2012

Jam #1 will run from between 2:00 PM EST – 6:00 PM EST (GMT -5) on Saturday, 17 March, 2012.

There will be no theme, this time.  Somewhat of an icebreaker.

Most all of it will be run on IRC (see below).

If you’re an artist, stop by and draw something.  Maybe set up a Livestream so we can watch.
If you’re a composer, same deal.  Make noise.
If you’re a programmer, make anything.  Technical experiments are cool too.
If you have no idea what you’re doing, stop by anyways.

Should be pretty interesting all around.

How do I join?

Sign up here.  It’s not mandatory but I’d like to get a head count.

IRC: irc://irc.boredicons.com/4hourjam

Any one of the above IRC clients, #4hourjam at irc.boredicons.com .  Or if you’d rather use your own client, I’d recommend the following:

ChatZilla: Firefox addon
Miranda: Open-source standalone

And how exactly is this going to work?

Join, make something (or show people what you’re currently making), get feedback.  At the end, I’ll collect links to all the running projects to feature in a post-mortem post (with your permission, of course).

Do I have to make games?

Not at all.  You can draw, or something.  Or sit and watch.  Everything’s good.

Do I have to start anew?

Not for this jam.  This one isn’t a competition, just a showcase for what everyone’s working on.

Questions?  Join the IRC, or email me at thatsnail [at] gmail [dot] com.
