Last month was an exiting list of projects and I'll share the details with you all.
Community Project Passajolt
An exciting idea for an community project: you get 24 hours to code before you have to pass the file to the next person. Next to the persons who can easily be called the masters of GameJolt, I was able to land a spot too.
The project has become a little inactive the last days, because the file is now only sent to people willing to add to it, but as soon as we have the results I'll notify here.
The NGMC is the (unofficial) Dutch community for the software program Game Maker, and it's already around for 10 years now. So it's logical they have tried multiple times to create games with very large groups. A NGMC member tried it with a simple approach: make a maximal 20 seconds long minigame and I'll put them all together. I've had my share in it by creating a little game called 'Protect Guy'. I'm not entirely happy with it, but it's okay for what it is.
For the ones who are interested in it, the entire source code is available for download, so maybe you can use it.
The GameJolt contest #10 has taken off- with the theme 'Party'! There's already 500 people taking part of it, so if you're interested, join in!
I'll be taking part with my Super Size Switchers. Just keep watching the activity feed on the contest page! I'll be trying to post as much process as I can there.
Undimensional is, probably because of it's simple nature, my current most played game on GameJolt. The stats are, at time of writing, that in total 900 games are played! In this total of 900 games, there was an average time of 5000 seconds. This would mean the average time per game is 5,55 seconds. (With a friendly reminder that if we hit one thousand, a community achievement will be unlocked!)
In addition to that, the game was powered on 118 times in total, which results in ~8 games played per session. The game has 226 views on GameJolt and 118 downloads. This would roughly mean the game was played exactly as many times as the game was downloaded (possibly not true because I launched the game lots of times to test stuff).
Undimensional's first build was downloaded 71 times, 1.1 14 times, and 1.1.1 (the current version) has 33 downloads. All news articles of the game hitted 100 views average. The soundtrack was downloaded 22 times total. The highest score logged on the leaderboard is krial's score, 41.13, and there are 26 other scores. The current rating is 73/100 voltage.
