Hi there!

Yes, Adventure Jam 2019 is around the corner!
Adventure Jam 2019 Banner_v9

For the fifth year in a row, anyone with a computer, an idea, and an internet connection is invited to create an adventure game over the course of 14 days (the jam runs from June 8 until June 22)!

For more info visit the official website in Game Jolt:
http://jams.gamejolt.io/advjam2019

Of course I'm going to participate... this is one of my favorite jams.

This time I hope that many of you can participate, maybe we can create a Icehouse collaborative entry? It could be fun!

PS: I'm going to die... I just have a week to rest from Cyberpunk jam xDD

You could also collaborate with someone doing illustrations for a 2D game, like The Forgotten Crypt Smile

Finally I'm happy to announce that I'm going to participate! I will work in the world of Mon Village est Magique (again). I'll be happy if some of you want to join me and do a few things. I'll probably need help for 2d character illustration, music, or anything else where you want to get involved (3d modeling...). I don't know if I can finish my project in time, but AJ is 14 days long, which is fine for me (it's better than 5 days...). And my priority remains Myha if I have to work on the last rewards with Denis.

And this good news doesn't come alone: I think that I have motivated Yves to participate too! It will be his first game jam. He will work on a small Unity project on his own. Isn't it great?

That's potentially 3 good Icehouse games that will be made during Adventure Jam Smile (Juanjo, Yves and me). I hope more Very Happy
I can't wait to see what's going to happen! Cheers!

OMG!!

Really? Are you and Yves going to participate? That's great!! I'm very happy to hear that!

As you said, I'm going to participate... this time I have a real challenge in my mind, I'm going to leave my comfort zone ... a little bit only, hehehe.

And I think there will be more people who will participate... I have a feeling Wink

That would be great if Similia and others could join in too!

Regarding John, I think he has all the skills required to create his own games. It is quite easy to use 2d illustrations with engines like Visionaire to make games (a little bit like the game of Atelier Sentô: The Coral Cave). It's still a lot of work (drawing, scanning, developing...), but at least there is no need of programming for "small" games if he could choose the good engine.
We're here to share our experience and knownedge John (and the others! David? ...). If you are motivated, curious, and if you think you can be available to work on something during the period of the Jam, don't hesitate to ask us! There is still time until the begininng of Adventure Jam (June 8 ), so we can talk about the best possible way for you to make games on your own!

Oh that sounds interesting. Maybe if I get a good idea for a game I'll try it out. I saw that Visionaire is available for Mac so that is good to know ;p
I don't really know much about game making so not sure what is needed to start something like this haha.
Is there anything that would be good to know if using a program like Visionaire? Maybe I can try it out on my own and do a game jam another time.

Yeah, John, you could try, it can be fun and we're all here to help you!

About Visionaire... I can't help you but you can find documentation on the official website or search for tutorials on Youtube, there will be a lot!

Regarding to my entry for the jam... I'm evaluating the possibility of doing a tribute to the classics like Myst, Aura, Schizm, Rhem, The Crystal Key, Riddle of the Sphinx... but on the other hand I would like to try new things and as I said, leave my comfort zone... so I'm not sure what I'll do xDD

I hope to make a decision this week.

Do you guys have any ideas yet?

For Visionaire there are many official tutorials!
Check out the list of video tutorials when you scroll down:
https://wiki.visionaire-tracker.net/wiki/Tutorials

It is (quite) easy to create a 2d adventure game. First of all, think about what you want to tell, there has to be a beginning and a end: that's your main ideas for the game. When you're ready you can start to make the graphics. You have to create an animated character (different positions: wait, walk, take object...), which can be very simple, usually you don't need to create a lot of frames, it's not a cartoon. Then you have to create the game environments, as many as you need for your story (not more difficult than making a comic!). You have to think of some interactions (dialogues, puzzles...). And finally you assemble it all in Visionaire or another engine, using the simple scripting/actions provided in the engine (which will replace the boring programming language if you're not familiar with it!).

Lol, no I have no idea!
I know that I will work in the world of Mon Village est Magique, but I don't know the story, the game engine, the genre, etc. I want to try new things but I'm not sure I will have the time to finish a project...

Post by Juanjo_LS on 6th June 2019, 10:00

Hahaha, I understand you Simon, don't worry there are 14 days to create something incredible!

After several days making brainstorming I have two main ideas...

1.- The first one is more detective, investigation, secrets, puzzles ... in a mysterious and atypical island with a mysterious host ...

2.- The second one is more similar to the Myst games with different places to visit, looking for fragments of an artifact to avoid a catastrophe... (less original).

Although I don't rule out a third riskier idea, where I totally leave my comfort zone... but it may be too much for a 14 day jam... maybe I'll save it for Icehouse Jam  Rolling Eyes

Anyway, this time nothing of horror, nor darkness, nor blood... only beauty and tranquility.

What do you think?

Beauty and tranquillity? I say YES! Very Happy

I would love to see a Myst-like made by you in a world of beauty and tranquillity for once!

But the other option with investigation sounds good to.

And me too, I must start to think seriously....

Anyone would like to share ideas for the short story of my MVEM game for this jam? Where could Seb and Tommy travel to this time? They are going to leave our world for another Magical World, but where will they go, and what will happen? Smile

You're right Juanjo Wink

Regarding the ideas for my project: I'm not 100% sure (not even 50%) but I think that Seb and Tommy are going to see a scifi/fantasy movie at the close theater with their parents (a movie with giant monsters or spaceships, like Jurassic Park or StarWars - but a fake movie because I can't use the licenses).
Suddenly some of the monsters or spaceships arrive in real life, as if they escaped from the screen: for some reason, one of the Magical Worlds has mixed up with the movie and gave life to real things! The kids, with the help of Mumutton, will investigate in town to find out what's happening.

What do you think? scratch

I love the idea: scifi, fantasy, magical worlds... sounds really interesting!

Yesterday night I've been able to write a first draft for my (potential) entry. I've finally decided on a Myst type game, with beautiful landscapes, quiet and simple but ingenious puzzles... or so I'll try.

Oh, and I tricked Chris (Python Blue) again to help me with the music, hehehe.

Tomorrow is the day!

By the way, are there no more participants? Similia, Denis, Rehvaro ... John...

Juanjo I sent an email to Silvia, Simona, John, Deki and Bob, just in case. I hope that there will be more participants (Yaz?) Smile

I'm already very happy, because we have (at least) 3 potential projects:

Project 1:
Juanjo + Chris
Myst-like

Project 2:
Simon
Mon Village est Magique / 3rd person adventure

Project 3:
Yves
To be determined / action-adventure

I don't know if we can finish them, but I hope. Let's try to have some fun!

I'm still in the Fragment Jam. I try to fix some bugs in my prototypes. This evening, I've succeed to fix one big, for the Cyberjam one. It's not all perfect, but I'm happy to see I've found the solution. I'm not sure to be able to participate to the adventure gamejam this year. All depends on what I'll do for the Fragment, as it's for me more important for me to participate to an Ekkiel gamejam this year.
