So last Themed Trainwreck Thursday was actually on the third Thursday of the month, instead of the second, like it said it was. What gives? Anyway...
This Thursday's theme is "Inspired by Pokemon." What does that mean? Well, we asked some self-proclaimed "Poke Experts" and here's what they have to say:
"Above all, Pokemon's most famous feature is different creatures that can be catch-able, trainable, and/or trade-able. They may have more-or-less distinct abilities and strengths and weaknesses that make it fairly simple to decide which distinct situations they would best be suited for. Of course, this theme can be interpreted in many ways. For example Tanaka's Friendly Adventurely abstracts the creatures into friends you must meet in order to see them and their different descriptions at a party. You can make a game based on this theme that is as abstract or not abstract, surreal or not surreal, as you like."
If you would like to participate in this month's Themed Trainwreck Thursday, grab the game-making tool of your choice and tune in from 7-9 PM EST on Thursday, May 20th! Be sure to hop on our IRC channel while the game-making is going on for more fun and good times!
Remember to submit your games HERE when you're done!
