Relic Game Jam #5

Welcome to the fifth annual Relic Castle Game Jam!

For the uninformed: a game jam is an event where developers will get together and make a game. It sounds simple at first glance, but making a good game is much more difficult and time consuming than you might think. Participating in one is a great way to challenge yourself, learn new skills, and polish your overall experience as a game developer.

Another year, another game jam! Our fifth game jam might not be too different from previous years, but we're nonetheless incredibly excited to see those familiar faces and newcomers alike! Year after year, everyone impresses us with how creative and unique their entries are -- and we don't think this year will be any different.

The Pokémon fan game community is an amazing place, and that's all thanks to each and every one of you. Take pride in that, and your hard work! Let's make this game jam a special one!

Additional thanks to @Cilerba for letting us re-use the game jam logo from last year!

You can find more information about the game jam in the Overview Thread.

  • Looking to recruit: Graphist, Programmer, Musicien
  • Jam Entry Title: Snek
  • Team Name/Team Members: Team Snek RC GJ#5 / Nuri Yuri
  • Progress/Screenshots: I initialized the git repo and added the SceneBase structure to create all the require scene
  • Method of Contact: Discord (add friend)
  • Timezone: GTM+2
  • Additional Information: Since I don't have a lot of time, I'll make a very simple game that perfectly fit the theme : a snake like game :)
    I already programmed snake under calculator & Raw RMXP in the paste (2010). This time I won't use RMXP at all, I'll use pure Ruby with LiteRGSS & FMOD.
    The global game will be about making a Abo (Ekans) growing from the egg state to the Arbok state, a bit like the tamagochi.

    If we acheive to make the game play before the deadline we'll think about a Multi Player addition so it'll be a bit more fun :)

    Other info about the game :
    Resolution : 640x360 (used for sprite coordinates * Graphics.scale), 1280x720, 1920x1080, 3840x2160
    The graphics are expected to doesn't look pixelized on 1920x1080 so a line of 3px wide should be used for all the graphics.
