AdventureJam 2018 - Games are out!
« on: 21 May 2018, 04:23 »
AdventureJam 2018 has been running in the last couple of weeks, and the games are now out! Thought it might be good to have a place to discuss stuff.

There are a bunch of AGS people / games involved too!



Maybe more that I've missed?

There are 67 games in total to play! http://jams.gamejolt.io/advjam2018/games

dkh and I (along with Howie Day, who I don't think is an AGS member, but I could be wrong) made For a Brief Flicker! We ran out of time to do what we wanted to, but had a fun time joining in and have discussed making a more complete version. This is my first go at 3D character animation!

Wow, great looking entries, I need to give them a try.
dkh hasn't been around here for ages - I hope he is doing fine?

I voiced the main character for this entry - http://jams.gamejolt.io/advjam2018/games/crosspurposes/340843 - but it looks like the dev is battling to overcome a major bug before putting the build back up.  (Thought he'd gone very quiet on Twitter!)

Well done to everyone who entered.  Brief Flicker! looks fun.

I tried playing For a Brief Flicker! but this slows my machine down so much it's still playable but no fun to play :P
did you write your own unity adventure engine for this?

Cross Purposes is now fixed - https://gamejolt.com/games/crosspurposes/340843

There's a version with and without the VA.  Chose without if you don't like my voice! (laugh)

It felt like there was a lot more buzz this year than in previous years but as it turned out, the number of entries is WAY down. I wonder what happened? Possibly a lot more people collaborating could have been a factor, but that doesn't quite explain it.

The games are rated and awarded, Aye Fair Lady won, I didn't like it though, too much singing ;)

I played another one of the games:

Thanks for posting about the jam Privateer Puddin'! And thanks again for doing a playthrough of my game selmiak! Claude and the Phantom came in at #3 overall and scored well on art, dialogue and puzzles. It's not really about the rankings, but I focused on the art style a lot this time, and I'm particularly happy people have responded to that.

Lots of great games this year - one of my favourites was Where Others Lie by xil/calicoreverie. I wrote about the first bunch of games from the jam that I tried on my blog here - all of those are well worth playing! There are other interesting games I've since discovered, like While Dreaming. Once again it's been a really inspiring jam and community.
