      Or early 2000 Newgrounds and Miniclip games.
      Back when the pros and insanely dedicated teens and nerds really put their all out for nothing just for the joy of it.
      Didn't get paid, there wasn't even advertisement for them back then yet we got so much and even some franchises not to mention the animations.

      @AD The Millenium Kid The jump doesn't have a timer though, you have full control over when you jump.
      But it is a cute platformer, one of the best I've played on mobile.

    It's an absolute honor te be among the 20 winners! After Losing CTRL I didn't have much faith that our game would be mentioned, and it popping up right in the next spot was stunning to say the least. Thank you so much to everyone who played and enjoyed our game, Emergency Protocol, and a big thank you to Mark for hosting this amazing Jam!

      I know this is super late but I just wanted to say I've tried out most of the 20 games and yours is by far my favorite - I had so much fun figuring out how to get the secret on illuminati! If you turned this into a fully fledged game I'd buy it.

      @maistro gaming I use Game Maker Studio, and have been using it since around early 2017. In terms of pixel art, it's hard to date it but I'd say at least since 2014. I was in middle school and was just making bad art for my dumb little scratch games. I never really tried to improve at it or anything but eventually I just kinda got better (even though I'm still not great). Just keep putting time into it, and you'll see results :)

    CONGRATS to all the submitters for completing a game and getting your ideas out there!

    And, just as importantly, CONGRATS to everyone who gave it a shot but *didn't* submit anything! You have gained more experience than any amount of "if only I could" can ever provide.

    cleaning the system put a huge smile on my face from just how silly but great the idea is. major "Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy" vibes, but with a unique spin.

    • Kambo0

      I thought it was very similar to Ribbit by Nitrome. Really hit me in a spot I thought I'd forgotten and brought a smile to my face

    • Jani Kärkkäinen
      Jani Kärkkäinen Year ago +2

      Cleaning the system felt a like cross between Getting Over It and Kuru Kuru Kururin. Man I miss Kuru Kuru Kururin, I probably should play that game again.

    • Graphomite
      Graphomite Year ago +2

      My thoughts exactly. I could see Cleaning the System being a hilarious game for LPers or streamers to record.

    Still can't quite believe I made it into the top 20 with Genre Hopper! I'm beyond thrilled! I love Restless Wing Syndrome and Laser Guy - honestly all of these games are brilliant! Thank you so much to Mark and everyone who played, rated or took part this year.

    "This just needs some polish and further development and it'll be a seriously good and fun game that I and many others will want to play!" I swear I thought that like 21 times while watching this video. There are so many genuinely incredible ideas here that are just begging to be made. That last one in particular looked like a game that could be a speedrunners dream to master as well as have the mass appeal of a simple but addictive mobile game. I look forward to seeing some of these get explored in more depth.

    I found this video after stumbling upon Sam Hogan's channel and I gotta say: This is so amazing! Not only is this such an awesome, creativity-fueling challenge but the concepts people then came up with in such a short amount of time are actually incredible! Most of them even managed to add incredibly polished and unique game design and made their creations seemingly very fun to play. For someone with no game development or even coding experience this is really astounding to watch and I'm very excited for more of these challenges in the future!

      There are a lot of game jams throughout the year if you're curious. Too many to count now (www.indiegamejams.com/) but some of the bigger ones I know about are Ludum Dare, Global Game Jam, 7 Day First Person Shooter, and Train Jam (which didn't happen this year because of COVID-19).

      @Ron0Studios Especially Cell Machine. Once you hit Play, you can't drag the cells around until you hit Reset. Sounds boring, right? However, it's not entirely "out of control", in the sense that you can't do anything at all. Before you even hit the play button, you have to think ahead (or use the step button to test one step out at a time) while you try to move tiny blocks around in the build area. You want to blow up all the red enemy cells in order to win the level. However, a move cell might push a push cell to the wrong square, or you might forget that the direction of the slide block affects how it moves and you need to spin it around with a rotate cell, or a generator cell might generate a immobile cell that doesn't do anything when you don't want it to. It's full of excitement or fun.

  • Toby Clements

    I know this is really for game devs, but, as a lowly back-end engineer, i really enjoyed the whole thing. I don't want to sound naive but its a really nice online experience and those don't really exist anymore. Nice to see.

      @Punocchio Sure, i mean (to my mind) if you can develop a game thats playable: you are a game developer. I meant its enjoyable to observe regardless of being able to contribute.

      @El Andru Nah I'm not getting heated, don't worry. Just know that it's hard to know game design politics if you're not in game design 😊

    • El Andru
      El Andru Year ago +4

      @kasiapeia highlights Yeah, chill out, I never mentioned publishers but that is what I was referring to.

      I told you I'm on the side of the devs, its the people that hide creative potential who I'm disappointed in.

      I of course know about financially risky things, but I believe that good game design can stretch the core of a franchise and make the next iteration of it. I think getting too stale will eventually hurt the franchise so experimentation needs to keep happening in order for the franchise to keep itself alive and strong.

      I don't know if you are getting heated over this which it's not my intention, because we are basically agreeing on everything.

    • kasiapeia highlights
      kasiapeia highlights Year ago +1

      @El Andru You're putting that on developers and not publishers/publishing companies, though. AAA devs don't get that kind of input because we have to listen to what our bosses are saying we should do. The only exception are game directors who get to pitch the actual game ideas. Furthermore, most of the time, we're not really allowed to take too many risks because it's seen as financially risky / goes against previously established game design rules, like long grass is something you can always hide in, etc. The issue here isn't the devs :/ it's the fucking system. Trust me, we want to make AAA games that are more risky but it's borderline impossible to get the money. An AAA mobile game can cost about $1M to make with a full team of 20. Console games are closer to about 30-40M, and trust me, it fucking sucks to be told that your idea is good but that it's not something the studio is willing to risk the money on :(

    • El Andru
      El Andru Year ago +2

      @kasiapeia highlights Yes, thats what I'm saying, but I need to see devs like these create big budget titles since they have the design and principles down so good that experimentation often goes great.

      Most AAA titles are very uninspired in my opinion, its very rehashed and a chore to play.

      These devs show that great questions are still left behind and need exploration. That is what my comment was referring to, I hate that they have such a small light when they have the biggest creative power.

      Like the new Halo, "what if it was Halo 1... But with grappling hook?!?!". That is boring.

    GMTK Jam has become my favorite jam to participate in. GGJ used to be king, but they make it very hard to participate remotely (granted... they don't want you to do it). Their themes used to be good, but the past 2 years have started feeling less and less interesting. Ludum Dare is the one I've done the most of, but their themes pretty much always disappoint XD. I look forward to the 2021 jam to continue the great experience the last 2 have been.

    Holy crap, I'm so impressed. This is one of the few times where lots and lots of creators can get together and do something amazing.

    16:11 This reminds me of an old flash game called Lego Junkbot.
    The robot walked by itself (like the one seen at the time stamp) and the player moved around lego pieces to change the environment.
    It works very similarly to this game but it's way slower and perhaps more methodical, even though it's played in real time. All the lego bricks you can use in a level are there from the start. You just move them around. Sometimes they're an obstacle themselves since you can only move them, not delete them. Also, the game counts how many times the player move bricks in a level so there is reason to go back and redo a level if you think you can do it with less moves. It had a sequel called Junkbot Undercover. Both of them are classics of my childhood. :D

    Honestly I feel like a good 5 of these can be spread into full, really great puzzle games

    I'm shocked that out of the twenty highlighted games only one went the pun route of interpreting "control" as the ctrl key.

    As someone who just started (trying) to learn programming, I am in awe that people made THESE in just 48 hours!! From design to code to playtesting, I can barely wrap my head around it! Many kudos to ALL participants, your creativity and thrive are truly an inspiration.

    I also want to emphazise this fact: There are now 5477 new pieces of interactive media that didn't exist last month. That is both a fascinating and heartbreaking prospect, since most of us will never get to play a fraction of these in our lifetime.

      @spoonsweet There is no such thing as "too much clak-a-clak-a!"

      @SIN NOMBRE Mr Brown himself. The chat was A N G E R Y because of "clak-a-clak-a"

      I still have no idea if this is a joke about the theme or everybody giving super chats so that Mark can buy a quieter keyboard

    These are very helpful, for me I’m planning on making an incredible game. I actually only started thinking of it today. and my dad is an engineer at LEGO and he loves coding and I’m an artist. like a year ago my dad bought me a book about coding and I really want to learn it. the game will include lots of turtles. because I love turtles it will probably also include JoJo references. because I’m a huge weeb (sorry for grammatical errors It’s not my first language)

    Okay, I would love to try Two-timing Towers.

    If there's one thing that Game Jams can do is that they can give a beloved genre an awesome new mechanic.
