Time lapse vid of this being drawn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_7kpTyntf8its NEXT SUNDAY + MONDAY, april 8th and 9th, 2012!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?
The formal time during which you may spend your four-hours-or-so on creating your entry has been EXTENDED to a period of 48 HOURS
from the previous 24 hours. So you may also use MONDAY to work on the game. We thought having both a weekend and weekday in there might make it just flexible enough to accommodate more people. What do you guys think?? Seems reasonable to me!
SO it is now on the second sunday and monday of every month, from 0:00 sunday to 23:59 monday!
Official Blitzkast Time starts on sunday, 18:00 UTC. But you don't have to be there if you can't! Thats just a time where everyone is invited to start their 4 hours simultaneously. But any time during the two day period is fine.
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 ARMOKS' SAKE
So this month, it will be at the 8th and 9th of APRIL. Just repeatin it again. Keep That in Mind.Where?
At your place! Meeting in #poppenkast@slashnet
Thats the IRC channel. You are invited to go there when you work on your game and update everyone on your progress.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!The BONUS THEME is " HORROR IN THE SUMMER ".
Think about running away from horrible monsters in the hot summer night.GET MAKIN'
With love,PoppenkastLAST MONTHS' GAMES!
