Hello everybody i hope you're all having a great day!

Dang! Sounds like fun and a great learning experience.  I'll have to keep better informed in this area.  Anyone know of a good resource for keeping up-to-date with jams, conferences and other meetups?  I know there's a section for that on the tigsource forums but I'm wondering what else is out there.

Cool idea.  We can't read anything written on that whiteboard though.  Can you move the camera?

...Also, I'm not getting any sound and it'd be cool to hear what you guys are talking about. :D

Ok, I actually AM getting sound... I just needed to jack up the volume to ridiculous level.  Moving this to my desktop, which has studio monitors hooked up that I can pump up and hear you just fine.  Good luck guys!

Woot! Here's our game: http://globalgamejam.org/2012/word-loops

;D

Word Loops. You can play it on my site, here:
http://axcho.com/wordloops/

I did most of the code. That looping text stuff was tough! And I uncovered a bug in FlxU.rotatePoint() because of it... :P

John! there are lots of events!

Google up those:

Flashpunk (they have their own "flashpunk jam")
Global Game Jam! (anual)
Ludum Dare (like a GameDev Thriatlon) -

I am looking forward to participate this year's Ludum Dare, it will happen in April =)

Too bad i couldn't make anything good enough worth showing here T_T

My team were 3 artists
1 <overloaded> pixel artist,
me in SFX/BGM,
and my friend that stupidly decided to use RAW XNA on the Game Jam.

This year's fail, is all his fault >=|

I told him we should use flixel.

I feel like i "wasted" 48 hours of my life.

The good thing is that this year i managed to TALK to other jammers, getting to know their projects, companies, etc.

Here's the song i made for our "game attempt": https://d.facdn.net/art/foxt/music/1327786005.foxt_foxtacy_-_the_song_of_my_people__earth_theme_.mp3
