SO LET'S USE THIS WEEKEND TO MAKE THE PIRATE KART EVEN MORE MASSIVE!!
Q. What is this?
We're making loads of awesome and/or terrible games and taking them to GDC to blow minds with them! Over the weekend of February 25th-26th, everyone is invited to make as many games as they can and submit them here! After the event is over, we will package the games up into a launcher like we did with previous Pirate Karts! And then this March we will be showing them off in a kiosk at the Game Developer's Conference!!!
The kiosk will even continue to download games while on the show floor!
Q. Who can participate?
ANYONE! EVERYONE! If you or anyone you know makes games, or even just has an interest in making games, we would love to have you all participate! If you've never made a game before, we think Klik & Play is pretty easy to learn! but any tool is allowed and there are lots of great ones out there!
Q. What are the rules? What kind of games are allowed?
The Pirate Kode has only one firm rule: If the rules are getting in the way of you making games, disregard them! To put it another way: Cheating is encouraged.
But we have some guidelines for you if you want some direction!
Q. THIS IS AWESOME! HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Get yourself comfortable with some development environment, then when Pirate Kart Weekend arrives, MAKE GAMES LIKE CRAZY!!!
Q. I MADE A GAME(S)! HOW DO I SUBMIT IT/THEM?
SWEET! First, sign up for a Glorious Trainwrecks account if you haven't yet (you can do that here). Then click this, fill in the form, upload a game and a screenshot and submit and then YOUR GAME IS IN THE KART!
Q. Weren't you asking for money?
It got fully moneyed on Kickstarter!
Q. Where are the game ideas people gave as Kickstarter rewards?
Right here! There are THIRTY games that need to get made! If you could update that spreadsheet as you start working on them and with the link when you finish, we can hopefully avoid overlap and Mike will be able to contact folks when their games are made!
Q. I want to make a game, but can't code!
No prob! There is a lot of free tools for your game-making needs!
Klik n' Play is the classic. Outdated, limited, buggy and absolutely wonderful for churning masses games.
Construct 2 uses HTML5 and you can create a nifty on-line game.
Official Hamster Republic RPG Construction Engine
Scratch (converter to standalone exe files: http://chirp.scratchr.org/dl/ChirpCompiler-setup.exe
Stencyl Creates iOS and Flash games!
Oh! My! Game!
BYOND (simple programming language)
The Scrolling Game Development Kit
The Scrolling Game Development Kit 2
Adventure Game Studio
Game Maker Lite
Ray Game Designer II
Making games isn't just for programmers!
Q. How can I hang out and chat with everybody?
We have an IRC channel! More info on that here!
