A while ago, we discussed holding a little qt3 “game jam,” so to speak. The idea was simple:
Using whatever tools suit your idea best, make a game that takes no more than 10 minutes to play.
Ideally, the game would be available online or in some form that allows other qt3 members to play. It could be a text adventure, a roguelike, a platformer, an RPG… whatever. The only qualifications are that it should be something that members of the community can play to completion in ten minutes and that you’re willing to allow people to discuss it. There need not be a hard delivery date for it; in fact, it can be an rolling game jam.
I’ve been thinking more about this in the new year because I need some type of small project to kickstart my creative processes again.
Here are some tools that you could use. Please feel free to suggest others.
The obvious big hitters…
2D / Platform…
- RPG Maker
- Yarn (dialogue tool that integrates with other engines)
There are free assets available over at opengameart.org.
There are tons of game engines. Google around to find more. Most of those listed here are free. Many simple text games can be made with little or no programming knowledge.
So… anybody interested?
