Attn Doom Goon

I was just going through the old game jam thread and _only now_ noticed your feedback on Sneaking Mission. Absolutely made my day. I can't PM you or reply to the archived thread SO NOW THE WORLD HAS TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE A SWEETIE PIE.

How can you have a yellow alert in Spacedock?

I should really scope myself like I'm doing a one week jam. Which really means scoping myself like I'm doing a weekend jam with some time to polish.

I'm pretty much doing this. This weekend has unexpectedly been eaten up completely (I literally have zero time that isn't committed), so I'm already a little stressed about the time remaining. It's my first game anyway, so I'm just going to come up with a neat little fun mechanic that I can implement in a relatively short period of time, then spend the rest of the time on polish.

It might not be as big as games more experienced goons will do, but I'll be ecstatic if I can just finish something fairly simple and, hopefully, fun.

Team Cta Hta is looking for a 2d artist to save us from programmer art. We are using Unity and prefer to work with spritesheets instead of bone based animation.

PM here or in the Awful Jams discord.

For anyone who wants a good pixel-art/sprite editing tool, it's a pretty good one.

Going to recommend nobody call any copyrighted characters out by name in their submissions.

Definitely do not name your game after a trademarked franchise or character.

The interpretation of 'bootleg' is open, though, right? So it can be either bootleg ripoffs of games/movies/etc, OR bootleg like a game about the prohibition era where people illegally made Muslims in their bathtubs and such?

I've been doing the unity tutorials this last month so Im going to try and make something really basic with that. I've all ways wanted to do one of these jams.

Probably end up on the wall on shame but I've gotta give it a go.

Does this mean a game called "Super Merlio Brothers" is also off limits / not in the spirit of things?

Given Nintendo's recent habit of DMCA-ing fan games, I'd avoid poking any Nintendo properties should you decide to take the theme that literally. But that's just my opinion.

They can't stop parody. It's legally protected.

Parody is a legal defense, not a right.

While the odds of it happening are slim, if a rights holder sends us a DMCA we cannot challenge it and will fulfill the request.

That should be fine, just don't use any names / characters / designs verbatim. Think less "Mario 4" more "Giana Sisters" be creative.
