I did not like many themes, either and many good themes have been slaughtered.  Cry

Tried to reach out to Mike to make it truly optional:

I did not really expect to be successful.

Theme voting seems to kill 'extreme' themes, so the result is something generic.  Shrug

Eh, I usually dislike all themes initially, so I'm done complaining about them—just think hard about something interesting that can be done with it despite that and it usually works out. c:

Of course, I have two people to spitball with so that helps (said we'd only be two, but while Marte won't really be joining in on actual production this time, she's still along for the idea procedure this time as well, and it's basically her fundamental idea that has inspired the rest, so yay!). We've been discussing for about two hours now and are almost ready to start working! Hand Thumbs Up Right You'll see what it is when we can actually present something concrete. e:

So far in LDs I was always just the design/graphics/mood guy, this year going solo and will attempt to tackle programming. Need to build experience with c# anyway (unity), so hopefully can get something functional done.
I actually like the theme, it lends itself easily to relatively simple ideas.

I would like to see the next rounds of theme voting
because i mostly dislike the themes in Round 1. Sad
I'll probably not have time to participate anyway. Cry

I'm still hoping for themes that are based around pictures or non-text at some point! Like the make your own album cover:

I'm doing astronauts too Tongue.

DAY 1
Space, exploration, survival, narrative and tough decisions.
A bit too much for 48 hours maybe. Not confident I'll finish this in time but we'll see.

I like "Use 1 power pellet to power map" - spending a collectible but finite resource to make things easier.

Site's down. Mike's working on it.

I made an arcade game where your character monologues when you score points:

Here is my submission! I wish I had more time to work on the narrative (among other things) but I'm surprised it's even as complete as it is. Good luck everyone!

I had to cut a lot of ideas I had, and was working on win/lose conditions in the last hour of the compo (super bad planning!), but I finished it in time! Keep the lights on by feeding fuel into the furnace, the monster that is pursuing you walks slower through any room that has lights on.

Did everything work "smoothly" this time with the site (and organisation)?

This site was really slow at the announcement of the theme.
But beside that everything was working for me
