TAG 8 is about to start. The themes are announced (slightly early, will be on schedule hence forth) here :http://solvevolve.com/2014/03/tag-8-themes-announced/
TAG helps us think outside the box, especially with the random themes. So this time I want to try out procedural game design(http://solvevolve.com/2014/03/the-power-of-the-procedure/). Please let me know what you are your views and do you think its a good fit for TAG.
The development begins on 8 March (31 hrs from now) and lasts for 48 hrs, after which point submissions can come in the next 12 hrs.
What is The Arbitrary Gamejam? The Arbitrary Gamejam (TAG or TAGJam for short) is a monthly gamejam with a twist: The winner of TAG hosts the following TAG. TAG drives web traffic to the sites of small indies who deserve attention, all the while building a community of awesome people. By participating in the jam, even without the intention of winning, you are really helping to give these folks some exposure. If you don't have a site or a blog, you are still very welcome to join in, if you win, you can pass on your honors to someone else (or set up a blog on the spot like some of our previous winners have done!) TAG is in its 8th month, and going strong. So far we've seen some awesome traffic spikes (and even some decent gains in regular traffic) for hosts of TAG, and with your participation we can build this good natured competition into something even greater. If you want to find out a little more about TAG or even just play some of the previous games, the full rules are available here: http://www.thearbitrarygamejam.com Doesn't matter if you're a Award-Winning Veteran or a total newbie, TAG is open to everyone. Get involved!
TAG 8: Themes Announced | Solvevolvesolvevolve.com
About TAG:TAG, the arbitrary game jam is to encourage us game developers to explore ideas based on a random starting point and execute them as fully as possible. Themes are chosen randomly using a random word generator and just to supplement the host gets to choose a theme, any other rules he wants....
