I'm thinking of rounding up a gaggle of like-minded chums and popping along (we're all Cambridge-based).
Oh, cool! Would be great if ye came along for sure.
Never been to anything like this before, and I'm still fairly green at
development in general, so I suppose two obvious questions come to mind:
- Is there anywhere I can read about what has gone on at previous TIGJAM events? Pictures would be amazing!
There are some photos around the forum. Here's a set
from the jam January of last year. People (usually) upload games made at them here
- Does it matter that most of the people in my group would be fairly amateur-level at most aspects? I'd rather not spend a whole weekend pissing people off by being stupid.
No, that's cool! So long as ye're willing to keep an open mind things should go fine. There're lots of different tools that people can use to make games for people with different levels of technical knowledge, and people are, so far as I've seen, always willing to help out other people when Things Go Wrong (with one exception that comes to mind of me before breakfast one morning).
What sort of experience do ye have with games-making stuff? Any sort of things ye want to work on over the weekend? (it's ok if you have no projects in mind - there'll be a lot of short themed jams going on that most people will probably participate in).
If you're around Cambridge, you know that we meet up every Tuesday? ( see here
for more info).
EDIT: Just realised I posted on the TIGJam UK3 thread asking the first of those questions. Consider it answered.
I answered as I read from top to bottom. OH WELL.
Dont have a laptop to work on mah game.. :< Guess mah sketchbook will have to do if i can get their.
have a bit of a hard time without a laptop. Though, there was an illustrator at the last one who brought along a scanner and he managed to have some fun. Were I to go laptopless, I'd probably focus on doing board-game stuff when there.
