You have one week to complete your game, so make sure to turn in your game by the 8th.
Use only assets freely available to everyone or ones that you make during the week.
If you want to show progress on your game you can start a WIP thread, just be sure to start another thread in the “Finished Games” section when you turn in your game, and make sure to begin the thread’s name with [BGMC36] so others can find it.
The game must be developed under Blender based game engines such as BGE, UPBGE, Armory, Blend4Web or similar.
The game source code must be released for the community as a learning source.
Try to optimize your game data size. It’s not required, but an avarage size of 50 MB (without binaries) is a good start.
Create a topic on Works in Progress subforum if you want to document your progress, or in Finished Games when you’re done. In case you choose the first option, move your thread to the latest when you’re done.
Name your game topic with the prefix BGMC 36.
Upload your game on a non-complicated platform to download. Game Jolt, itch.io , GitHub or Google Drive are good choices.
On your game topic, provide information about which Blender version you used and, if needed, a download link.
Thx for the example rules joelgomes!
Great, good work to everyone!
Just a question: over the past weeks I’ve been working on a BGE framework with some features such as GUI and data management. It was not made during the jam, but it’s freely available to everyone and I intended to use it. Am I allowed to use it?
I’m super excited, and I have an idea I want to run with. I should be able to post earlier this week, but I won’t have wifi (probably) on Friday or Saturday. I look forward to seeing what everyone makes!
Is it okay if I submit early on the 8th? (since I won’t have wifi)
Just create a thread with the title starting with [BGMC36] containing all the needed information about your game (also download links) and you’re ready to go. My post from a previous BGMC as an example.
got a question. im working on my game and i thought to ask. when you say two colors, does that mean that the entire game can only have two colors or does that mean that the theme of the game itself must be about two colors? there’s so many technicalities of how i can perceive this but i dont want my game to be disqualified because of how i think.
Well, I’m sorry as it sounds like I managed to cause confusion for the ending date. As I seem to have tripped everyone up, I’ll definitely list all the games submitted for voting.
This now leads me to a question about the date timer I set up. For me it displays Aug 1, 2021 → Saturday, is this what it shows for everyone else, or is it displaying a different time for anyone?
There is no need to cancel games because of being late a few hours. Publish it and let the best game win. In the past, we all had WIP threads to show we are working on our games and everyone knows if we are late a few hours that the game is coming and it’s made during the BGMC.
When did you want it to end? Saturday for you is not the same as Saturday for people in New Zealand (or any other country closer to +12 UTC). This is what I see when I hover over the end date. Note how it’s on Sunday for me.
