Show your ideas! 1

Tijn • 1 year ago on Music Kajam entry  Blues Jam Simulator

With the jam underway for 7 days now, it would be a good time to start sharing your ideas. You can create an entry earlier and update it later once you've made more progress.

What I want to make myself is a blues improvisation simulator. Jamming blues music is one of the staples of playing music together with fellow musicians. Because of its standard format and scale, anyone who knows these things even a little can jump in and join the fun that is improvising music together with other people.

Sadly most non-musicians never get to experience this, so I thought I'd try to find a way to simulate it somewhat. It's not going to be a game per se, but more an online toy / educational experience sort of thing. The idea is that I'll provide a virtual piano you can play with the keyboard of your computer. The twist is that you can only play notes that are in a blues pentatonic scale, which means that basically all notes will sound alright. To have something to play along with, I'll record a bunch of backing tracks on guitar which will provide a standard 12-bar blues framework. This way you can jam out on the virtual piano along with my guitar playing, so we're effectively jamming together :)

So yeah, that's what I'll be making. Show me what you've got in mind!

I've Released my game Drawn Down Abyss! :D 2

Drawn Down Abyss is a roguelite platformer card game with a focus on action. I've been working on it for the last few months and I've finally released it. This project is part of why I couldn't spend much time on my AKJ7 entry.

Check it out on Itch and Steam! :D

Dear Jammers !

I had a tremendous time participating in this edition. However the end of the event wasn't what I was hoping for. My wife (8 months pregnant) came down with the stomach flu and I had to call in a doctor right after submitting. I hope you all understand this had full priority over me writing up a project page with instructions on how to play the game, especially since I did all of this solo (code, graphics and audio)…

However, if you would allow me, I have taken the liberty to write one up now ! :) I am terribly sorry for those who played the game and had to "guess" the controls…

Cheers and thanks again for the nice time,

Dr. JavaSaurus

Forgotten Robes 0

Kerri • 1 year ago on 7th Alakajam! entry  Forgotten Robes

It's finished! I think this is the first time I've ever successfully completed a project for a game jam, there's still a lot I can do with this if I want too, and might but with time constrains I'm incredibly happy with where it is now.

I'd love it if you could all check it out and give me some feedback and let me know if there are any major errors (I can't test Mac or Linux).

This was a wonderful experience for me as I got to dive into something new with Godot and I am blown away by how wonderful it promises to become as a game development tool. I look forward to having more opportunities to use it in the future!

Unfortunately my team-mates both met some struggles so some parts of the game weren't hashed out as good as possible such as the tinkly music. The tinkly music is nice but it gets repetitive after a while and it doesn't convey the atmosphere I would've liked but as my composer contracted a virus over the weekend this was all she was able to produce, the rest of the sounds I mixed myself.

Thanks for reading and taking the time to check out my entry! :)

Glax Adventures (GameJam Demo) after posting 0

ShovelBoi • 1 year ago on 7th Alakajam! entry  Glax Adventures (GameJam Demo)
I posted the game yesterday and I am planning to turn this demo into a full game, I think it has potential.  I'm definitely going to change alot of mechanics and enemy speeds.  But this might turn into a full-on project.

Like many others there's so many things I had to cut that were in my head, and I sure wish it looked prettier. But I'm just happy to have completed a game/game jam for the first time in years! Thanks all!

Finished my first solo jam! 2
