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:

And please add the tag "lowres-nx", if you publish something on

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

.... 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, 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...

Timo 2019-07-24 11:52

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 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.

Timo 2019-07-28 19:35

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

Roy___ 2019-07-28 23:25

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.
