What Would Joggydeux?

What if there was a game about an ancient civilization, but instead of controlling its people, you controlled the landscape? This idea led Peter Molyneux to create Populous, a title that would go on to influence gaming for years to come.

Now the year is 2013, and the video game industry is in a creative drought. We need new ideas to reinvigorate and reinvent video games as a medium. How? Molyjam, of course!

How?

Make a game based on a tweet! Take a page from Peter Molydeux, self-proclaimed doppelganger of Peter Molyneux, or from anyone else!

When?

Molyjam takes place during the weekend of July 5th - 7th. You'll get 48 hours to make your game. Note: Do NOT go by the Glorious Trainwrecks event time! Since Molyjam is a global event, the jam starts and ends on midnight in your own timezone! Don't forget that vital bit! Start jamming once your calendar hits the 6th, and stop when it's no longer the 7th on your end!

Where?

Molyjam will feature a number of physical locations worldwide. You can jam on site, or jam from home! And if you can't join your fellow jammers in person, remember that there's always virtual reality!

Our IRC is at #glorioustrainwrecks on irc.freenode.net.

A list of game development tools is here.

You can submit your game to Glorious Trainwrecks here, or the official Molyjam website once submissions open.

I just realised a few seconds after I posted that.

I am an idiot.

**EDIT**
"Game where you play as youtube and become self aware. You must cleanse yourself of banal cat videos or face a life of hopeless ennui."

I am doing this. I hope.

**DOUBLE EDIT**
You are a sad lonely firework in a dusty shed on 4th July, what if you could use ghosts to sneak you into big display in New York?

Or this.
