Welcome back to the Relic Castle Winter Jam! I'm Cat, the ever gracious host, back again for another Winter 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.

With the success of last year's game jam, we decided to bring it back this year. Thanks to the pandemic and real life getting in the way, we pushed it back a couple of weeks. But we're here again! Last year's twist was a required map, I wonder what this year's challenge will be?

Repeating my sentiments from last year, 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!

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

  • Looking to recruit:
    • Trainer Sprite artist(Front Sprites primarily)
      • Very high priority; I can make do with what's available to me, but it won't be that good.
      • Required sprites for project: 10~12 Trainer Sprites, based off various Touhou characters
      • Proof of work required on applying
    • Composer(Field Music, Battle Music)
      • Moderate priority; would be nice, but not super vital as I can use what's available within the community.
      • What I need depends on what's available through the various Touhou-related resources I have.
      • Proof of work required on applying
    • Play-testers
      • Very low priority; I can usually do play testing by myself, but more eyes is better quality usually!
    • Mapper/Eventer
      • Extremely low priority ; I will only need these if I can't handle mapping/eventing it all on my own due to Complications:tm: listed below. If I need them, I'll make mention of it.
  • Jam Entry Title:
    • Touhou Puppet Play ~ The Festival of Curses
  • Team Name/Team Members:
    • DerxwnaKapsyla: Mapper, Eventer, Plot-Writer, Misc.
    • Jelo: Tile Editing
  • Progress/Screenshots:
    • No screenshots yet
    • Plot fully and completely drafted out
  • Method of Contact:
    • Discord ID: Derxwna Kapsyla#9486
    • PM on Relic Castle
  • Timezone:
    • GMT-5 (EST United States)
  • Additional Information:
    • Foreknowledge of Touhou-related material is NOT required. It helps a lot, but everything I need done can be done without it, or with advice from me.
    • I'm about to go in for dental work on the second of February and may be a bit out of sorts for a few days after that. I should still have enough time to get this work done provided I'm not completely out of it.
    • Might need someone with Photoshop to do some quick and dirty work for me, because gimp doesn't do what I need

[Recruiting] (Now Full)

Jam Entry title: Pokemon: Secrets of the Cyber World

  • Looking to recruit:
  • Spriters/Artists
I need spriters/artists to help me make art and sprites for the game like trainer sprites, tilesets, backgrounds and Pokemon. This is pretty high priority for the project as only one person can do so much.
  • Programmers/Mappers/Eventers
This is the highest priority I need for people wanting to join. People with experience in programming/mapping and eventing in previous game jams and fangames is a picker for me as I myself dont have much experience in doing stuff like that.

  • Composers/Playtesters
This is lower priority for me, as any team members can test the game while in development, and I would like to have a few custom tracks in the game like the title theme and maybe a few battle themes? At least a title theme would be good.
  • Writers/Story planners
This is the lowest priority of any I recommend for people to join, as team members can openly recommend ideas and story points and dialogue, and if you can do multiple different roles in the team, that would be great!
  • Progress/Screenshots
No screenshots, but the google doc for my brainstorming document and ideas I had for the game is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y02R_dDrTz4NjyghPwOusFuCZZajqttyXsgPexY3Ysk/edit

  • Team Name/Team Members: Me, Brysoon, Maurili, LuxDiablo

  • Method of Contact
Discord is preferred, and my username is Kristiano100 #7784 and you can DM me there! I am also on the Relic Castle and Thundaga server so we can also contact there.

  • Timezone: AEST, or Australian Eastern Standard Time.

  • Additional Information:
  • The first spriting bunch we are going to do is tileset making so we can begin mapping first, that is the priority first currently.
  • If someone also had Photoshop, that would be helpful as well as I only have access to paint.net, though it is not needed.

  • Looking to recruit (1 spot left):
    • Spriter: Someone who can make a some overworld sprites and edit / make tiles along with me. Bonus if you can do trainer sprites!
  • Jam Entry Title: CRADLE: A Pokémon Story
  • Team Name/Team Members: Revolutionary Rat (Writer, Scripter, and partial Mapper, Eventer, and Spriter), XXTheMichelXX (Mapper / Tester), Derek
  • Progress/Screenshots:
    • Currently the game centers around the main character, who is stuck in a VR loop until they discovers a Pokémon clutching a notebook, which will allow them to, if they piece together the clues, escape their routine and venture into the CRADLE, a derelict facility of sorts, where you've seemingly been stuck all your life with nobody but a robot companion as a friend. But being outside your loop is dangerous, and what's really going on outside the CRADLE? And what's your purpose there?

[Volunteering]

  • Expertise: Game Testing, Balancing/NPC Trainer Teambuilding, Writing (Spriting and Eventing too, but I do not recommend to recruit me for those traits, because I lack alot there)
  • Examples of Work: I created Pokemon Pandora and Pokemon Climate so I got some experience in game jams.
  • Method of Contact: Discord (Haunted Ditto#4332) and Twitter (@Haunted_Ditto)
  • Timezone: CET
  • Additional Information: I participated in several competetive Pokemon draft leagues so I know how a challenge Pokemon team has to look.
    My job takes alot of time which is the reason why I'm not able to make a own project this year, but I will try my best to support someone else's project.
    Also I won't join a team instantly. I will wait around 48 hours (or longer, if no one replies) and then decide which team looks the most fun.
