Interest for GiTD #27? Possible Dates inside

63 posts

Flag Post

All these dates are on a Thursday for me so you’ll have to work out any time-zone date changes yourself.

Possible dates that are looking good:

  • September 27th
  • October 4th
  • October 11th
  • October 18th
  • October 25th

If not enough interest, GiTD #27 will be postponed for at least 2 months.


Post if you are interested and include dates that work out if there are specific ones.

Also, please note that we might be trying a different system (if it is agreeable) as specified:

  • 1 week to work on game.
  • Post game for critique. (very strongly encouraged)
  • Remaining 3 days you can keep working on your game and integrate any critique as it comes in.
  • On the tenth day, final submissions are due and cannot be updated past this point on the link you enter.

Any days work for me :D

How is the theme going to be chosen? I personally think you should go back to picking the theme

All days are good, and I am interested.

Count me in, I’m bored and my game is going so well…

I’m free any time, but just wondering if the dates above are the start times or ending times..?

All starting.

Theme will be picked by me unless everyone hates me. D:

I love you UG so that’s not a problem :D heart heart

Hehe, we love you unless you pick a bad theme >:D

I’m fine with whatever’s easiest- I’ll probably enter.

I might enter. No guarantees.

I would like October 25th. By then I’d be able to contribute to the prize.

Interested. Any date is good.

As someone new to GiTD:

Are we voting on starting dates, or closing dates, or what?

I like the idea of critique for three days to improve our games. ;)

I think it will only be good for some.
My “Any date is good” means “Well, there are ten days… I guess I’ll manage to free one up to make a game”.

From my own experience and from what I’ve seen in the comments of many GiTDs, a lot of people barely find a coupl of free hours to make the game.

Having the last three days for critiques (and forcing people to submit it before that) will harm anyone who wanted to start working on the game at the last moment, plus those who only had free time before the seventh day won’t have any time to improve it after reading the suggestions.

So yeah, it’ll work for those who can afford to spend ten days working on a game, not so well for the rest of us, who usually take the GiTD as a “Game in Two Days”.

Sure, why not? Since I’m just about done touching up my current game, I could use an AS3 warm-up before diving into another project.

True, that’s a valid point. I just don’t want anyone with holding their game for whatever reason. Perhaps I’ll take out the required.

You should ask cleverbot what the theme should be.

I might find time to enter. September 27th is best for me.

User: What theme should we use for GiTD?

Cleverbot: We should!

User: No, what theme should we use?

Cleverbot: The middle east.

User: Hmm, fair enough!

Cleverbot: Have you got a sister?

User: WTF?

Cleverbot: Nothing.

I can only participate if it’s after the 6th, cause I won’t be home otherwise.

User: You call picking a random theme difficult?
Cleverbot: Did I?
User: …
User: Any theme ideas? Whatsoever?
Cleverbot: Use limbs and torsos for currency.


Wow… such a clever idea for a zombie game. Rofl.

Then I’d vote for the 11th or later. That said, I’m not certain whether I’ll get to build a game, so don’t hold it up on my account!

@Opossum: How about an RTS where you kill zombies, and use their body parts to build new units? :-P
