Here is a new game jam from the Neo-Interactives that some people here might be interested in:
The Smoochie Jam is a month-long unranked jam all about kisses, real or imagined, love and romance. The name and concept of this jam were inspired the original SmoochieComp in 2001, hosted by Emily Short.
Games should be about romance, kissing, or the deliberate subversion thereof. Here is an optional list of story ideas and concepts:
♡ first kiss, last kiss
♡ kissing in the rain
♡ kiss of life (or kiss of death)
♡ sealed with a kiss
♡ kiss with a fist
♡ spaghetti kiss
More information and guidelines can be found on the itch page. We’d love to see more people participate!
Surprisingly, I’m more active over at the intfiction.org forum, and yes, Team NeoInteractives (Manon, Sophia et al) are back again, this time with another jam- this one’s ties in with the Valentines’ Day theme. The January jam which they also organized, the Recipe Jam, has just ended. You can check out the entries here.
I encourage all of you to participate, we need more returning faces! Since the theme is romance, it’s gotta be easier than the previous month’s jam (in that one, you needed to include a recipe of some kind).
This is interesting; I may delve into working on something for this while working on the update for The Bureau. I’m unsure whether I’ll be attending classes this semester or taking a leave of absence (lack of availability for the classes I want to take) so I may have extra time on my hands. If I do this, definitely gonna have a “Scared to be Lonely” and “Love is blindness” kind of messy vibe to it.
