|Two Heroes, One Controller|
|The Other Side|
Too many games have core elements that exist solely to help you. It could potentially be much more interesting to make a game based around a mechanic or object that helps you progress but is also dangerous to you in some way.
The community finds the theme for the 26th gm(48) through two rounds:
- The first round, which runs from 7th April to 14th April, you can suggest up to 3 themes as well as vote for any theme.
- The second round, which runs from 14th April to 21st April, you can't suggest any themes, and you can only vote for the 10 themes selected from the 6 best themes, 2 funniest and 2 most controversial of the first round.
To help organize the rounds and encourage discussion, there will be a stickied post on /r/GameMaker for each of the rounds. The theme for the 26th gm(48) will be announced on this page, the home page, /r/GameMaker and Twitter (via @tehwave ) when the game jam starts.
The previous gm(48) themes were Castles, Parallel Worlds, Create, Lost, Colorless, Permadeath, Evolution, Minimal, One Minute, Guns that don't shoot Bullets, Stealth, You are the Enemy, Death is Useful, Top Down _____., Endless, Environment as a Weapon, Escape, Space, Only One Level, Risk & Reward, One Health, Descend, Sacrifice, One Shot, One Tool, Many Uses, Helpful But Harmful, Countdown, Companion and Colors are Important.
