Make a game in one week! The jam starts this Sunday and most people will make games with PICO-8 and TIC-80. Let's add some LowRes NX :)
Find all the info here: https://itch.io/jam/fcgj4
And please add the tag "lowres-nx", if you publish something on itch.io.

So, not part of the jam but have tried to upload my THUNDERATION game... not sure about what I’m doing though ...

I created an archive which includes the web player and instructions how to upload a LowRes NX game to itch.io.

.... Am I correct to assume this needs to be done with my WINDOWS pad, as I’m not quite sure how to do this with my iPad or iPhone...

I love game jams, so I don’t want to miss this one
Timo 2019-07-17 06:15
Was8bit: yes, you need access to the files, not so easy with iOS :/
Tinycloud: Cool. I’m just discovering jams, this will be my first :)
was8bit 2019-07-17 09:30
Ah, thanks for clarifying .... I’ll need a good day for my brains to give it a try, but current circumstances won’t comply anytime soon.. hopefully soon I’ll get a chance to try it on my windows pad :)

Nice! Will try and do something if I can!
Tinycloud778 2019-07-19 23:18
Bad news, I might not be able to make a game in time but I’ll try to
Timo 2019-07-20 08:03
Keep it simple Tinycloud, no stress :)

Sooo... I’m on there as was8bitNX... and I’ve posted my fish fry game.... but I’m really not sure what I’m doing.... can someone check what I’m doing??
Timo 2019-07-24 07:17
was8bit, I cannot find you on itch.io, please post a link.
was8bit 2019-07-24 10:25 (Edited)
I sent a pic of my dashboard, I can’t find any direct links.... :/
Hmmm I found this....
was8bit 2019-07-24 10:36 (Edited)
So... I fiddled around with some more stuff on there.... it’s really confusing, not sure what else I’ve done...

I didn't add anything to a jam yet neither. But regarding the game page, try to make it playable online. Very few people will make the effort to install an app to try a game.
Best option is to use my embed package (link in a previous comment) and make it playable directly on itch.io as an HTML game.
In any case put the link to the community game page into the description. And the tag "lowres-nx" would be cool.

The jam is over. It was smaller than expected, but anyway. If you have an itch.io account you can vote now :)

I failed miserably, sorry. Family holiday time isn’t the best for programming; the brain doesn’t really work after a long day!
was8bit 2019-07-29 03:58
No worries, I understand... I’m now 3 weeks without a day off... :/
Timo 2019-07-29 07:49
I mean the jam in general was smaller, for all platforms, the previous FC jams had more submissions. Anyway, LowRes NX won by quantity, good job :)

That’s great! Surprised there weren’t more entries in total though..
Timo 2019-07-30 07:37
This jam has new organizers than the previous ones, looks like they didn't announce it very well.
