Woot, progress! I'll speak in Central Standard Time (GMT -6) since that's the timezone I'm in...
Alright, this is what I got thus far:
SantaHack is a little better planned and structured. The concept here is same (to gift a game), but the definition of this event has come almost entirely from sheer spontaneity. As such, this event is SantaHack's cousin, KrampusHack.
You must register (by saying "I'm in" on this thread) by 2:00pm Central Standard Time on Friday, December 16th. The above list of participants is already registered.
Anyone can join at any time and will register by PM'ing me directly. You may or may not receive a gift and the gift you make will be delivered to someone randomly in the group of official participants above.
You have to have your game turned in by 2:00pm Central Standard Time on Saturday, December 24th. I will send the games out shortly after through PM. Merry Christmas and Bah Humbug too!
Your assigned person will be sent out shortly after 2:00pm Central Standard Time tomorrow. A new allegro.cc thread will be started! Try to use allegro, but if struggling, use whatever you want. Make a game! I will provide any information I can on your assigned person as discussed from this thread. Personalizing your game for the receiver is also recommended but not required.
Keep your game gift a secret! Play it and spend some time to write a thoughtful review. Send the review back to the secret santa. Try to do so before January 1, 2017. On January 2017, everyone please post your game on the allegro.cc Depot!
