Hey guys-- what do you think about making another thread for showing off our game jam progress?

Friday, June 30, 2017 - 20:47

@Xtheth -- Heh. Yeah... sorry about that. It could probably have been better worded. It's supposed to be super-open to interpretation so people have lots of flexibility to make basically whatever they want.

@Sparcsky -- Nope. :) Use everything you want from OGA-- and if you have rights to non-OGA art, you can throw that in, too. The challenge art is basically extra credit.

@Chasersgaming -- Heh. We're overwriting each other. :D

Oh, the 'themes' are on the jam page. :) They're basically the themes and resulting art from some past OGA contests.

(On the Itch page:)

>> Themes from previous Art Challenges are:

>> Underground / PD Quick / Surt's Scraps / Share the Love / Science / Reborn

>> And the assets created for them can be found here: Art Challenge Collection


The 'themes' concept is really loose. Free associate things remotely related to the Art Challenge topics and you'll be good. :)

For instance, I'll just stick some of my baby sprites from the Reborn challenge, and add a 'Rebirth' plot element to my RPG's story, and that'll cover it. And for good measure, I'll stick in a cave level. Done-- two themes incorporated.

Danorder was the one who'd originally talked about getting this going, but he hasn't been involved in a while. Busy, probably... which is a pity. Chasersgaming is hosting this now, and I've been following / assisting some, so I can answer most questions.

All the important info is on this thread, the description, and maybe a bit on this one other forum thread, which is what we used to plan the thing. :) Anything in particular you were looking for?

And... start!

81 people in the jam. Holy cow... you guys are awesome. :D See you soon!

Yep. :) Minimum only!

@DuoQ - I asked the same thing earlier.

He means at six assets-- at least two from three different categories. So, two from the OGA 2d category, two assets from music, two from textures, ect. That's a minimum, of course.

I mean to do 2d art, music, and sound effects-- which is probably the standard package for 2d games. :P The category list shows up if you hover over the 'Browse' menu.

I'm prepping to make an old-school Final Fantasy-ish mini-RPG. ^^ I know it's a super-difficult thing to try, but I need a sandbox break, and SNES JRPGs were my first love. :rubs hands:

I'm really looking forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with! We're already up to 36!

Hey Chinmaya!

If you were logged in while you downloaded things, there will be a 'collection' on your account with everything you've downloaded. That might make things easier. Crediting usually includes a link to the user's account unless they have attribution instructions in their file.

Chasersgaming decided that planning before was all good, so downloading should certainly be fine. :) It'd better be, anyway-- I've been going through my Hyptosis sprite sheets and making organized Unity assets out of them, so it'll be easy to build things when the start gun goes off.
