Thoughts


Another game jam in the books! Thank you for your patience as our band of judges played each game. I want to shout out to the amazing individuals who came forward and helped with judging this year: Thank you @Voltseon, @Ranko, @Monika~♡, @Mashirosakura, and @KennyCatches! Did you get to try out all 29 entries?! I hope you did, because it's time for the Community Spotlight vote! But I'm getting ahead of myself, I should probably tell you who won Judge's Spotlight first!

While you could guess who won through process of elimination by looking at the poll, let me announce the winners proper! The judges as always have the difficult task of narrowing down the list, which means five Judge Spotlights this time around! Here we go, in order of release:

HELL†GIRL by @Armin


“Humans come to Hell to get punished?” ...What nonsense. I, for one... came to Hell to rule.

Pokémon Halcyon by @Ekat, @Foxowl, @Jeanot1000, and @Michael


In this game you play as Octavia, a budding psychic trainer. Octavia and mother have come to town on a mission - her grandmother has passed away, and now the house must be cleaned up. While Octavia is a little too young to help with many of the tasks around the house, her mother and the strange real estate agent will come up with errands for her to run.

Faerïs by @Ott and @LJ_Ele118


In hopes of saving their world, Faeris and Leru venture forth in to a long since abandoned place. Some call it a place of worship. Others, unhallow ground. Tales say that a past God-Queen was taken to this place to live in isolation for the rest of eternity. As to why, the true reason has been lost to time. But as long as there is a chance for salvation, and if this deity may hold it, they will seek it out.

Pokémon of the Elements by @Cuprite (Kyu)


Today is the day you finally become a knight of the Kingdom of Altai, just like your father. You've been training for this for years, and now, that goal is within arm's reach. Unbeknownst to you, this would soon push you into a far greater journey with far greater stakes than you could have ever imagined.
