Game Jam Winter Game Jam 2020: Recruitment

Not open for further replies.


The coolest ADMIN ever

A new Game Jam approaches?!
January 10, 2020 - February 21, 2020

Check out the:
Overview Thread
Discussion Thread
Game Jam channel in the Relic Castle Discord!

Welcome to Relic Castle Winter Jam! My name is Andy/Niall/Cat/whatever you want to call me, and I'll be your ever gracious host! It might only be winter in the upper hemisphere but I'm American so I can name this whatever I want. 😛

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.

While we always host an annual game jam over the summer, we thought it would be fun to host one in the off-season this year to test the waters and see what happens! Users (especially in the Discord server (you should join us!)) have been begging for an event during the winter so they don't have to wait until June/July for the next game jam.

For the rest of the deets, check out the overview thread.

Eternal Idiot
  • Looking to recruit: People for a Pokemon game made in PSDK. This game features gameplay similar to Battle Tower facilities, but it follows a narrative set throughout multiple regions.


- Eventer for help with doing scripts for Battle Tower-esque teams while I work on the rest of the game. Basically, creating the trainer events with the EVs, IVs, Natures etc into their 'mons and battle ready.

This part of the game is pretty time consuming and I could use the extra hands doing all the team-building ahead of times. MOST of the teams are already crafted, it just needs to be put into code and ready to battle in-game. Knowledge of PSDK eventing procedures for this part is a very very huge plus, but not needed (i'll let you know how it works).

Could be Nice:

- Artist/Spriter for Battlebacks and Cutscenes.

A nice variety of Pokemon Battle Arenas that'd make the battles look very nice. There's really only 2 cutscenes I want done, which I can technically make myself, but hey! The hands make it easier for me to work on the rest of the game. Spriters for misc. decorations and minor characters (that don't have designs so they can be done however) would be nice, but not needed. However, if I can't get anyone for the above and if someone just kinda wants to make characters, we still have room! The style is Gen 4.

-A lot of things really can't think of. The above two are very much needed. Whatever is not taken I'll be doing instead .-. If taking any other above roles, some additional brainstorming power would also be very nice! More heads are better than not having one at all I think.

  • Jam Entry Title: Tentative Title: Project Power
  • Team Name/Team Members: Ranko, Saucecoie, ArchiePichu
  • Progress/Screenshots:

  • The game as it stands is up through the intro in terms of eventing and mapping put together.
  • Method of Contact: PM ME HERE OR ON THE RELIC CASTLE DISCORD. ranko#0963 is my discord tag
  • Timezone: EST
  • Additional Information: I'm working until 7PM est on Weekdays, so uh, that's a thing. I also stream my game development on Relic Castle Voice channel in order to motivate myself. If you're not comfortable with that in terms of your work, lemme know and I can just, not.

Hiya! Don't got much to say, don't got much to show, but if anybody's a composer lookin' to do some short violin pieces for fun, so I can sneak 'em in the game as an extra little thing, feel free to hit me up!

You'd be working for a cute, small little game about a little koala that pretends to be a vampire. You would basically have complete free reign to make the pieces however you want. It's just if anybody's looking to do a quick, short project.
