Relic Game Jam #3


Welcome to the third 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.

We've now had two very successful game jams under our belt. Previous years demonstrated to us that the Pokémon fan game community is full of creative individuals who have an eye for quality and interesting ideas. We've always been impressed with what comes out of these game jams, and we're eagerly awaiting what this year will hold!

This is, of course, the first game jam on our relatively brand new forums. That hasn't dulled any of the hype and enthusiasm for this year's game jam though, as it looks like that everyone has been looking forward to it with bated breath. With all that said, good luck to all participants!

And an extra special thanks to @Cilerba for the game jam logo this year!

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

I can't wait to see all of the entries for the Game Jam! Currently, I've already mapped out some things for my project, but I won't reveal anything too much just yet. This is my first Game Jam, so I'm really excited to see what everyone creates!

Wooo, it's finally time! I must have been thinking up ideas for a few months, and I'm excited to be able to start working on them now! Really excited to see what everyone else creates too, and I hope people look forward to what I'll create working together with @Deo this year! Happy jamming!

There would be 80+ members thinking about participating, of which 40 would agree, of which 20 would give up after a few days. Of the remaining 20, 10 would give up in the last weeks. 3 or 4 would be late. So ... We'd be left with 6-7 entries.
...Where are these numbers coming from?

Here's some numbers: The first game jam had about 11 entries, and the second game jam had around 14. A lot of the active members now are the same who participated in at least 1 jam before, so it's more likely the number of games would increase? (unless all those members team up instead of doing solo projects)

Not quite sure what you're talking about here? Seems to me like you've completely made up those numbers. Anyway, last year we had around 15 entries, and judging from how many more people seem to be hyped up this year, I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than that this time round.

If anyone else wants to make a cameo appearance in my project, let me know. Obviously, using existing sprites or a sprite you have would be easier. Additionally, using a human sprite would make including you the easiest, but I can find a way if you want to be represented as a Pokemon or something.

I'm super excited to see what this one wields! I'm a little torn on whether I should participate--I'm a complete newbie in game making :P
Regardless, good luck to everyone!
