KrampusHack 2021 - secret santa style game jam

Hey Everybody!

I just opened registration for KrampusHack 2021

In case you don't know: KrampusHack is our community tradition for the holidays. It's a secret-santa style game jam: all participants make a game for another randomly selected participant. So the requirements of your entry are determined by another participant!

The whole thing is pretty relaxed and slow paced. There is no voting and no prizes - it's just hanging out, making something cool and sharing what you've made. You don't have to use allegro, and it's fine to re-use lots of code.

Who wants to join?

I don't have a logo yet for this year - is somebody interested in making one?

Hm, I'm traveling from 20th to 31st - so only 7 instead of 19 days and only a single weekend. Probably not fair to sign up but then likely not be able to make something for my secret santa... I do want to krampushack though - I think I'll just do one for myself this year, on the two weekends from 11th to 19th :)

Cool. I've signed up. Not sure what my commitment will be, but at least I'm an official registrant. πŸ‘ :)

I'll do some traveling myself as well. But it doesn't matter if you can't devote every day to it. A single weekend is enough to make something cool, Speedhack has proven that often enough ;)

Anyway, it's totally up to you but it would be cool if you could join again!

Just found that on an old drive. That wasn't the final version, I think.

Ok, objects don't work on a.cc anymore. But you can download the attached mp3 and listen to a masterpiece.

now not voted. It's also not comment?

I'm join again.

In the end I will probably do it without a Christmas theme. That idea is very burned, that because it's Christmas I have to put something about Christmas. I would like to do something more creative. :)

8 so far! Not so bad I think. Niek Zandt, one of the winners from Tins 2021 is joining again too.

I'll do another round of advertising in the coming days...

Let me get you a graphic of some kind? 🀞 by end of day, hopefully? I have some ideas.

OK, here's a colorized version:

EDIT: Image removed. See updated images in later post. (Original is still attached to this post if you want to see).

There are a few high-res and alt versions (black-and-white) in the attachments.

Let me know what you think, if you need changes or something :)

This is great, very eye catching! I'll use the colored version primarily. The black-and white versions are nice too, but I don't have a lot of printed materials to put them on.

Is there interest in a T-shirt too? In that case I'd like this design with a transparent background too.

Do you think that some of the icons might attract unwanted attention from the copyright inquisition if printed on a T-shirt? I worry mainly about Pacman and the space invader - the rest is probably fine.

Is C, C++ and Lua the only languages we can use? :P

Well, if you start treating the icons as requirements, then I guess we should also target only consoles and handhelds?

The icons are the law, what can I say? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Do you think that some of the icons might attract unwanted attention from the copyright inquisition if printed on a T-shirt? I worry mainly about Pacman and the space invader - the rest is probably fine.

Truth be told, I did the icons part very quickly. I'm not 100% convinced they'll be OK because of copyright like you mentioned, but also because the terms of the "free use icons" sources where I got them not very clear.

So if we wanted to use them to make money (sell t-shirts, mugs and merch), I think a safer plan would be to use a different set of icons, or possibly use the icons from the TINS website's background (that would be more consistent branding, too, which I actually think would be better).

Alternatively, we could use the isolated graphic in the middle in isolation (on a mug might be cool).

I'll look for a safer alternative of icons see what I can find. I also tend to be way over-concerned about things like this, too.

EDIT:

OK! I have replaced the icons with stylized versions from off the TINS website. I also added some more languages for Elias ;) :P

They are here:

{"name":"613085","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/6\/8\/68cef6c29355fd875bb40f9e357b964b.png","w":3168,"h":2448,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/6\/8\/68cef6c29355fd875bb40f9e357b964b"}613085

I actually think this looks better, is more "on brand", so thank you for the suggestions.

Black works best for me. Good image. πŸ‘

Although I don't know what that diabolical face means, maybe I can no longer distinguish between Halloween and Christmas, ignore me.

Febreze (and other air fresheners actually) is just below perfumes/colognes, and that's just below dead skunks in terms of smells that offend my nose.

Thanks. You can always invert the black-and-white version if you like.
