Well if I remember correctly you was the one who used payed tiles and made a GameBoy looking game. Now the graphic was great and the game looked better then any other game in the challenge, but because you did not make the graphic, I could not say ”beautiful game you made” - I would if you made the graphic. And I also feelt that "Hey, you broke the rules".. but I did not say anything back then...sketche99 wrote:Hey Isaiah222, just wondering of the descriptions you gave of last years speed game, which one was my game?
Just curious, as I don't remember getting too much feedback on my game.
Since feedback helps you make your game better...
I agree wholeheartedly about there being to few christian games out there. That’s the soul purpose I design games and a reasons I choose a challenge with a bit longer developing time and more relaxed rules, when it come to using graphic and audio others have made. I also wanted people to be able to use old game ideas they never realized.sketche99 wrote:No offense taken, and no hurt feelings here.
We are (or at least should striving to be) all brothers and sisters in Christ here.
We are among friends, not enemies!
As for the point about paid (or free - like opengameart.org) assets, they do help in a time sensitive game jam (like the speedgames) and I do think they are allowed if they are credited as such.
I forgot to put my credits in after the "You Win" screen. Probably due to time crunch, but I do credit the assets I use (some of my previous speedgame entries like: Forgive or Revenge , No More Burnt Offerings , Christians Don't Play Video Games  and Overcomer  all have credits screens)
Now for the part about last years speedgame not having prizes, and I love prizes as much as the next person who likes free things, but speaking for myself only now, one of the biggest draws to speedgame for me is to see if I can make a Christian video game based on a given theme in a given time. There is such a lack of Christian video games available, I figured i'd try to throw my hat into the pot and make that number a tad bit larger. Are my games good? Maybe, maybe not, but its the thought and effort that really counts. This also why I try to make various types of Christian games (for example Forgive or Revenge  = 2.5D platformer, No More Burnt Offerings  = 3rd person platformer, Christians Don't Play Video Games  = full motion video/visual novel, Overcomer  = open world/free roaming gameplay, and Names of the Lord  = 1st person exploration) And counts even more so for me as I have an 18 month old daughter that loves showing dada she knows how to cut on all of his video games and wants to play with dada (and sometimes for dada, as dada is in the middle of a boss fight...) No prize is really needed for me. Completing my project is enough of an accomplishment for me.
That being said, of course I'll enter your summer game challenge 2017 the more Christian game jams the better!
