A Thing They Call a Game Jam

I have been vocally against game jams in recent months. They are held with such frequency and so commonly at the same places that they mostly taste vanilla and rarely feel special anymore.

From the first minute of August 10th to the last minute of August 16th, 2014, I am going to be a total hypocrite and run a game jam. It will most likely be the only game jam I ever host and it will be very special to me.

I am not running it on Game Jolt or itch.io, although if you have no hosting, these are highly recommended places to host your games but you can host your game wherever you like.

To show interest in the jam, tweet the following hashtag: 

#mhotgibgj (I will let you know what it stands for at a later date). You can follow me on twitter (I tweet other stuff but it’s mainly videogame related) or follow this tumblr for updates.

More will be revealed, closer to the starting date.

And just to be clear, I’m not saying this game jam will be any more special than any other game jam. I’ve long wanted to run a game jam and this is it.
