Lightbulb AmiGameJam 2016 (The Festive Amiga Game Making Competition)

Hello everyone! In co-operation with the other members of Underground Arcade, I would like to announce "AmiGameJam 2016" (previously The Annual Festive Amiga Game Making Competition) has begun!

AmiGameJam is our annual game creation contest, which has been a huge success in previous years, providing creative developers a chance to sharpen and prove their skills and giving the community some top-notch games to enjoy. This year the name is different, but the contest is pretty much the same as before. You have three months to create a new Amiga game (or at least a single-level demo of a game) either on your own or in a team, that fits the chosen theme. The game can be coded or built with game creation software such as SEUCK or Backbone.

The theme this year is "TV Shows and Movies", so you are asked to choose a show or movie that you think would be fun to adapt into a video game. Try to choose one that doesn't already have an Amiga port. If you're not interested in the main theme you are allowed to enter a festive/Christmas-themed game instead.

Entries should be submitted by the 31st of December 2016, and judging will begin in January. As well as online voting, we hope to get some celebrity judges involved and the prizes this year will be better than ever before (and delivered on time, too).

As always, there are two categories: Classic OCS/AGA Amigas and Next-Gen Amigas (Aros, MorphOS and OS4) so anyone in the community can get involved.

More details will be added when we have confirmation from the judges and sponsors. Feel free to ask any questions, and good luck!

Cammy is working on a site, but we have also set up a jam page here - https://itch.io/jam/amigamejam

We will be working on a game together as an example but won't enter it into the competition. This way we can show the progress so others can see how they might go about it. We'll probably use Backbone as it suits the style of game that our chosen movie is best adapted to.
