The time is right... for making videogames! The Timezone Lottery Klik Jam happens on the first Saturday of every month, at a time chosen randomly by our top-of-the-line numerical hour-choosing machines. This month, it takes place at 9:00 am UTC. Whenever that time rolls around for you, you have two hours to make a game!

How can I possibly make a game in that short a timespan, you gasp? There are many game-making tools available, but the most ludicrous and welcoming of all is Klik & Play. If you want to give K&P a shot, we have a Learning KNP FAQ available, as well as some advice on making it work on modern machines.

Making games is its own reward, but it can be much, much more rewarding when you're doing it with friends. To get the most out of this worldwide internet game jam, come talk with everyone on IRC. It's a great way to share this awesome experience, and get quick help when things aren't going right. Our server is irc.freenode.net, and our channel is #glorioustrainwrecks.

After you've made your game, upload it here!

For more information, check out the N00B FAQ.

Didn't finish; it turned out to be a pretty cool idea though so I'll probably just make it a proper game over the next day or two. Here's a screenshot of where I was when the clock ran out though:

I'm not in charge of the

I'm not in charge of the random number generator! It generates what it generates, and KlikBot posts it. I don't even see the time before it's live on the site.

Try to find the upside -- you could have a game finished before 7am! Just imagine how unstoppable you would feel for the rest of the day!

Well, I suppose I could try to pull an all-nighter, but if there isn't going to be very many people participating, then what's the point?

And yes, I realize that the time is randomly chosen. It's actually a pretty neat experiment to find a time that works for (mostly) everyone.

Edit: Just noticed that five people signed up for this. Maybe I _could_ pull an all-nighter! Hmm...

You could also just submit something at a different time... depends how important the camaraderie is to you.
