Title: Global Gam Jam ?
Post by: aphexjh on January 20, 2017, 12:19:28 PM
There is a global game jam, where participants will idly waste valuable energy resources to produce briefly interesting vaporware.

Is anybody here planning to participate and make anything with id tech 4? I was looking up Blendo's past jam submission that used it and I discovered this helpful link from the long long ago. (it suggests d3w as a resource)

But anyway, I was thinking of making something with Unity, but I would also love to make something really ridiculous in tech 4. Anyway, if any of you are participating in any capacity in a Jam this weekend, it would be cool if you would share about it here. (whether its d3 related or not)

I've never participated but find them interesting.  A great way to try out stuff & share, and people accept, when in other avenues people would say it's crap & you suck.  :)

There's so much focus on features & bells & whistles you don't see much stuff that will sacrifice features & bells & whistles for something entertaining to interact with.
