I marked that I didn’t start one because technically I did but it was so incredibly last minute concept (only a few days left in the jam) that I wasn’t actually planning on it being a viable entry. Not starting one though was by choice and not due to difficulty with them or TAS.
I wanted to participate too, but things got in the way and life was especially hectic for me the final week of the jam, right when I had been hoping to make a last-minute entry. I never could settle on an idea I was willing to invest time into, and when I did have free time in the last month I wanted to work on other projects I already had in progress.
I did like the theme, but it led me to some larger, more ambitious game ideas, and I didn’t want to add an ambitious project on top of what I’m already working on.
Too many other things on my todo list.
Also learning another library just to enter a jam isn’t really my cup of tea,
I’d rather just dive in unhindered, making games is already sufficiently complex.
I had some ideas involving punk (punk-cat), but since I already have 2 unfinished games here, I didn’t want to start another one and rather tried to get a current project finished. And that took ages.
Game jams are fun, but I guess you can’t participate every time.
Itch.io keeps track of the jams you’ve joined. Apparently I’ve joined 5 but have yet to submit an entry . Don’t feel too left out.
The next time you do a poll similar to this (or any poll, for that matter), start a new topic so the poll appears as the first post. The way this poll and other polls in this topic are makes them difficult to locate (or even remember they exist), for the purposes of viewing the latest results, because they end up buried in the middle once a number of later posts (like this one ) are made.
It would be better to start a new topic with the word “poll” in it (and with links to the topic(s) it’s referring to, if desired). Being the first post of a topic makes the poll easier to revisit. It also tends to make any following comments added be more specific to the poll. In place of where you might have put a poll in the middle of a topic, make a post with a link to the new topic.
That’s a good idea. Even possibly making a topic tag [POLL] to make it even easier.
- Brain fried on the last days when I needed it the most.
- I was loving the idea a bit too much (similar to @jonne’s love for the cyberpunk theme).
- I was way too ambitious on the scope and I couldn’t accept to deliver something that was merely 1% of my original idea, with even less explanation than TAZS and no actual game objectives.
- I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to reach my “vision of code”, with a lot of refactoring (which are all great, but ate a lot of time).
Please keep a hard deadline in the future. It’s definitely a lesson taught to me (a salty one), which is used to “flexible deadline”, and that’ll help me in the future!
