BLITZKAST X


Time lapse vid of this being drawn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7zC-3nZPGg
(also can you spot the the blitzkast title in the teeth...whoops made it too subtle...)

its SUNDAY, the 8th of january, 2012!
(its over!! great games were made. Check this topic out.)

What?

Start and finish a game prototype within 4 hours! You can start any time you want within the blitz time frame, as long as you try haaaaarrrd not to go over 4 hours of total work. The four hour limit serves to keep the projects' scope in check. Going over is no big deal, it is more of a rule of thumb for what to aim for than a strict time limit. NO BIG DEAL. JUST MAKE A GODDAM GAME!!!!

Then post your doings on this thread!

When?
On second sunday every month, from 0:00 to 23:59!
Official Blitzkast Time starts at 18:00 UTC. But you don't have to be there if you can't!
Again, the rules are pretty slack. You can keep working on the game after that, or even start a little before WHO THE HELL CARES JUST MAKE A GODDAM GAME FOR PETES SAKE

This month, it will be at the 8TH OF JANUARY. Sunday, as usual.
Fun fact: It is the earliest possible day of the month, and also means this month will have a Friday the 13th....... which inspired this month's theme! SEE THE CONNECTION

Where?
At your place! Meeting in #poppenkast@slashnet
(thats on IRC. thats an irc thingy. Its an online thing.)

Why?
It's the perfect excuse to take a break from your usual projects and go nuts on something new and refreshing for just a short while. You just have four hours to lose...

This is not a competition. Idea is to get people active and make those games they always wanted to but "didn't have time for it" a.k.a. too lazy!

Bonus Extra challenge!

Theme: BAD OMEN
Make a finished game in 4 hours using this theme! If you like.

GET CRACKIN.

With love,
Poppenkast

--------------------------------------

ALSO HERES SOMETHING NEW.
Im planning to start a thing. (thats just me, Frankie. Hello!)
A thing where Ill make video wrap-ups of the competitions. Possibly with weird animated shit. Like, an animated character host playing through the Blitzkast games, possibly being wacky or commenting on em pseudo-humorously. It may or may not be a super awful idea, but im gonna try it out, starting by making videos for the previous Blitzkasts and hopefully catching up with today eventually. Im not promising anything but I think that could be fun and also provide with some sort of nice wrap-up of each competition, showing everything that was made in one lil package. Ill try getting one done this month.

I've actually, ignorant of this event, started with a game prototype yesterday, but it might inspire some here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh3gDLW5eY4&context=C34f9874ADOEgsToPDskJbAVi4p2GooZ0aT0kxpLkb

It's called SwearmGaem - a Game of Swarms - and it's about a swarm of bits which can help you or can work against you. Not much in the way of gameplay just yet, but it looks pretty mice Tongue

The prototype is made in about 4 hours, just not today.. also:
 - It's made in Cinder (http://libcinder.org/) in C++
 - No models or textures, just basic shapes from the cinder library (essentially OpenGL)

anyway, have fun.
