    I think this is a great idea... I've added a recent posts box to the front page above the news. This will just show the latest posts about the challenge.

    Yeah that seems pretty legit to me. It would be interesting to see if you go contemporary or if you put a twist in there like some kind of other time period or a fantasy theme to it.

    Would a game where you have to push/shove/blow a character around using some force count as indirect control compared to direct direction movement, etc?

    cheers,

    On my opinion if theese forces are not fixed to the character itself but fixed to the world it would be.
    For instance: Fixed fann to blow your character away, water currents, etc.

    Essentially yes, however as long as you are not just creating another protagonist character just to manipulate your intended protagonist. I made sure to specify that in the rules to prevent such thoughts.

    However, blowing (from wind?) or pushing using say gravity and/or slopes and the environement it's self or perhaps some kinda device(s) (ala The Incredible Machine style of play could work)

    ...but of course you do need to have at least 1 protagonist character of some kind.

    Speaking of The Incredible Machine (TIM), they are renewing that game by name Contraption Maker in Steam as early alpha version.

    And as far as my self-programmed scheduling application tells, PGD jam has 13 days 5 hours left

    Nice!

    I can see that game becoming popular on touch screens for sure!

    Well this is a quiet jam for sure... I'm guessing that everyone is heads down coding huh?

    I'm having hard time finding free time to work on my entry due to work and other real life related obligations.
    So I fear that story will reapeat and againg I will wind up with no entry due to running out of time.

    FTP server is now up early for those that want to submit early or check your FTP software settings.

    The FTP account information can be found in the original Rules thread: http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com...-Your-Command!
