Hey, just wondering if anyone had any interest in like a monthly game jam or some weekly challenge?

(edit, my post got lopped in half?)

When I was a kid I joined a flash animation community akin to stickpage and they hosted weekly animation jams that they called "Friday Funk". They'd give you a topic on friday and you had until the next week to submit. The community would vote, and the winner won a ton of "rep" (which is basically like XP on this site).

It was a ton of fun and I was always so excited to see what all my friends and rivals came up with for that week. Any interest in that? we don't even have to vote, we could just do it for glory or something.

Great idea! Id love to start something like this.

Was planning on doing Ludum Dare on the 28th, would love some fellow recruits to join in along side me! Maybe we can run a little competition or something. Maybe even do some live streaming or something.

I do plan on weekly events of some sort...Right now Im working on tech for things like screenshot Saturday and feedback Friday. Trying to find ways to integrate those where its beneficial to the user but also exciting to see all the cool stuff every week. Not 100% sure on ETA or actual product development at this point, but its something Im playing with.

hell yeah, I'm excited to see those features, Tim. Also I didn't know ludum dare was so close, I'd be into doing that as well.

Guys I am in the game a month jam for Aug, I have built a team of three and I would love some additional team mates, we started working on the GDD today. Please feel free to join the team and read the material! Tim can I use GDU instead of trello? My team aren't recruits but I am sure I can convert them.

Dude the one thing the GDU tasktraker doesn't do is teams. I have all the code ready to go for teams but It hasn't been fully tested and secured. Not ready from prime time.

Eventually though, yes. Recruits will be able to team up and "share" access to a game. I love Trello but I found its just a little more than I actually want. I just want lists and items I can check off. Everything else in Trello I think slows me down.
