Entry Title: AppGameKit Game Jam July 2018
Game Title: DSV Goldenrod 4
Written by: Rich Dersheimer for the July, 2018 AGK2 Three Keywords Game Jam
Keywords: Underwater, Yellow, Cat

I started out using all code-generated media, but then realized that I really wanted sound effects. So after I saved the sub and mines to .png files, I went to work in photoshop. The sea floor is made up of DrawBox() commands, the scrolling backdrop is a single sprite with a UV offset every frame.

Controls:
A to ascend, D to descend
F to release the FART, ESC to quit
M to toggle ambient music on/off
E to toggle sound effects on/off

The FART device will only work if the DSV and the cat carrier are at the same depth. You don't have to be near the carrier, just at the same level.

Your score is Mission Time in milliseconds, multiplied by the percentage of cats saved. There are many shout-outs and movie references in the game text, and several examples of the color yellow. if you broadcast to a mobile device, the game will add buttons for the various controls.



Please note that I've license to use all the media, but not to distribute.

Title: Dépaysement
Written by: BasicFanatic, Kakki and Draggoz (and since I CHEATED(!!!) by having a team, I disqualify myself!)
Keywords: Dizzy, Mouth, Solid

The keyword Dizzy made me want to create something inspired from the weirdness of Alice in Wonderland. I also wanted to make some tribute to Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, but never got around to it. I sorta failed that keyword! A basic theme in the game is that not everything is solid. The mouth keyword inspired the tongue attack and the mouths in the ground. The artwork became too dark, a typical fail of mine!

Controls:
WASD or keyboards to move
CTRL to stick out tongue

F4 saves a screenshot to your document folder
F2 toggle mist
F3 toggle vSync
F7 toggle physics debug
F8 toggle console

Love the art style, but got annoyed by the birds that would appear practically on top of me with no time to react.


For the yellow submarine game:
77/87 cats saved, score was 436,527 after 8:13 minutes.

Hardly a playable game at all, didn't even get my cat in there.

Run your electrical wire through the wall and around obstacles. Wall studs have pre-drilled holes, that is the only route which a wire can get passed a stud. The goal was to connect the wire up to a mouse trap before the mouse turns on the electricity and fries you. Since I've never figured out how to get auto-tiling to work, use the mouse wheel to change the "next" wire. (otherwise it'll just look goofy)

Congratulations to fubarpk on his very very close win! Email or PM your info so I can give it to TGC for your prize, it'll probably be a Steam code.

IronManhood, sorry buddy but I tried to compile your source code, tried your new compiled version and even tried messing about your code in order to run....but it kept crashing from one error code to another. Sorry :/

Edit: I've given the top three the codemaster badges, a little bling to show off until the next comp. I'm going to get a hold of the Next and see about making some custom badges for monthly AppGameKit programming competitions.

Here, hope it helps figure out why I couldn't run it. Though even after I edited out all the shader code...still wouldn't run...

Replace the blur.ps shader code with this code. I'm using a sprite shader for a fullscreen shader by mistake. I'm not sure why I don't get that error.

IronManhood, I'm really curious which one of us scores the highest on gameplay.
Me, I accidently made my game unplayable, despite writing a custom .psd2AGK level design script.
You, on the other hand, purposefully made the game unplayable as a gimmick which fit pretty well with you Chicken Justice and Empty theme.
So this is essentially a duel with you as the ironic hipster versus me as the artsy artist. Pretty epic!

TGC has agreed to supply a prize to the winner of any future AppGameKit monthly compo until said otherwise. Also, hopefully by Saturday, we'll have a cool little surprise setup for this compo's top three entries and future top three compo entries. Keep an eye out here in the next couple days.

SO for now let's discuss the next compo, how about we throw around ideas and than do a poll for the most popular? Also, I think by increasing it to a two week compo will help bring in more entries and give you guys time to polish your games. Thoughts, suggestions?

Outstanding!

Two weeks to code sounds good, I wouldn't have done near as much work on my entry if I hadn't been off work all week.

I think whatever process we use to pick a theme, having a random element will foster creation of original work (instead of pulling an old, unfinished project out of the dustbin).

I liked the part about each contestant submitting random words, but maybe not have a different set of random elements for each coder?

For instance, if the next comp was to make an "arcade" type game, and each coder submits 3 words. Then Josh could pick some words from the list, and that would determine the theme for all coders to follow.

Just my two cents worth.

For what started out with a drunken thread, I think this Jam went pretty well. Personally, I have come pretty far in just a week:

Things I learned:
+ How to animate in Krita.
+ How to build a really bare-bone platformer
+ How to make a scrolling background.
+ How to actually finish a game
+ How to crudely convert a .psd file to an agk platformer level

Things I learned that I need to learn:
+ How to give sprites collision detection. (lotsa methods here)
+ How to refresh the screen the best way.
+ Prioritize the code more, as opposed to artwork.

So, where should we go from here?

One thing we should decide is if we should move on to an "official" jam on either itch.io or gamejolt.com (which one is best?)
If we do this, I think we should commit ourselves fully to breaking new territory. For instance, moving the Jam discussion to that site. Otherwise, it may end up kinda half-baked.

If we host the Jam on itch.io or gamejolt.com, we should think a bit about how we present ourselves to the natives there.
How about we let the jam be for BASIC only? I think this would pique the interest of a lot of people. (I typically cause raised eyebrows when I say that I'm developing VR games in BASIC.) The benefit is that "BASIC-only" would appear like a fun gimmick, whereas "AGK-only" appears more like an uptight, private club.

Another option would be to hijack an existing Jam. Then we could see how we fare against non-AGK coders!

Instead of hard rules, we could have experience points:
Sharing the source code: 5 xp
Including AppGameKit banner: 5 xp
All graphic constructed with code: 10 xp

Hey congrats everyone! I had a very busy week and just thought I'd better see who won.
I think the judging was harsh but fair. Well done Moondog!
I have to say the win was well deserved
EDIT: Thanks for the new bling!

This AppGameKit jam is getting better by the minute with the suggestions.

Here are mine:

1 - To help more people get involved I think 2 weeks is better as I know I hardly have any time to spare for a short jam myself.
2 - I also think teams should be allowed too. This would give people a chance to get involved who for instance do not code but do graphics or music. There are quite a few on the forums who could tag along with a coder.
3 - XP is a good idea suggested previously. Maybe TGC could provide a badge just for entering a jam but under this XP points can be shown, much like a character levelling up! Every time a jam is entered then the XP goes up. Eg, X amount for code, graphics, music but more if you do all 3 yourself etc. Further XP for providing code or making assets your have drawn available to others would be good for the community too.
4 - A forum thread could be made to list all jam entries by Year/Month.
5 - Themes. I think once a theme is decided then it should be the same for all entrants. This jam was good but having different themes for each person doesn't allow gameplay to be tested properly I don't think. Having the same theme will show how good someones entry is compared to others and will show how varied the games can be with one idea.

Look forward to taking part in the future and well done guys as your entries were great.

This is now official and will be included into a new sticky thread that I'll be putting up soon which will include a list of rules and a back list of all previous AppGameKit competitions.

Quote: "2 - I also think teams should be allowed too. This would give people a chance to get involved who for instance do not code but do graphics or music. There are quite a few on the forums who could tag along with a coder."

I allowed this in this compo, so will be including this as another official rule.

Quote: "3 - XP is a good idea suggested previously. Maybe TGC could provide a badge just for entering a jam but under this XP points can be shown, much like a character levelling up! Every time a jam is entered then the XP goes up. Eg, X amount for code, graphics, music but more if you do all 3 yourself etc. Further XP for providing code or making assets your have drawn available to others would be good for the community too. "

I'll have to talk to The Next about this, I'm pretty sure this is possible considering the forum is custom made unlike many other forums on the net. Whether he is able to do it or not will probably depend on the amount of work will be needed to implement the system and if he has the time to do so.

Quote: "4 - A forum thread could be made to list all jam entries by Year/Month."

Working on this currently.

Quote: "5 - Themes. I think once a theme is decided then it should be the same for all entrants. This jam was good but having different themes for each person doesn't allow gameplay to be tested properly I don't think. Having the same theme will show how good someones entry is compared to others and will show how varied the games can be with one idea"

I agree with this. Since this first compo gave everyone a different set of themes, as three keywords, I was able to judge each by how well each game used each word and made it over half the score for each entry. Hopefully everyone felt this was a fair way to judge the entries. By having a set theme and a single set of three keywords will allow future judging to include more categories when judging.

I think the best way to do future compos, is for everyone to suggest 3 keywords and before the start, I randomly pick three keywords and this will be the three keywords for everyone. All future compos will be only hosted on the TGC forums, allowing myself and any other mods who decide they way to judge, to have full control over the compo and assigning winner badges and prizes.

I finally just checked out all of these submissions.

It was excellent to see the variety of games all were great in their own way and impressive for the short development time.

Great work!

Great projects everyone! Congrats!

As a suggestion, would be nice if everyone could stream on Twitch while coding. I know everybody is usually busy with work and such, but the few hours we spend on AppGameKit could be shared with more people. There’s a directory on Twitch only about Game Development and 90% of the streams are focused on Unity. I started last week streaming around 1 hour twice a week and it’s a nice opportunity to promote AppGameKit and also chat about game development. It’s really easy to setup and you don’t even need to use camera or mic if you want. Just an idea to grow our community. I’m available to help if you think its a valuable suggestion. Cheers.

I have no desire to use twitch or watch anyone do anything on twitch. I don't understand why its such a popular thing to do. (probably the same reason people like reality shows)

Quote: "you get a tornado warning too? "

Nah, I don't think we did.

Any thoughts on the next theme? I like the 2 week idea.

I like the idea of different themes for each person like the last one as that gives a greater range of finished projects

but nearly the end of month
