Over on GameJolt there is a BadBoxArt game jam for later this month. Here is the link to the art: http://jams.gamejolt.io/badboxart/gallery-of-trash
Take a look and post what game you’d like to see me make based on the bad box art. Let me hear it in the comments! The game has to be based on the box art rather than the actual game. So if the box art has a pink unicorn on it, but the game is Super Mario Bros… that means you can make a game with a pink unicorn.
There are a lot of ideas bouncing around in my head for them all. That’s the problem… narrowing it down. No promises if it will be good or bad since its only a 48 hour game jam. Plus I usually hire someone else to do the art.
It is odd that the jam would announce what you’re doing so far ahead of time. It gives people a 20 day head start if they want it.
I have made quite a variety of styles with the games I’ve made. I was victorious in the only other game jam I participated in… out of two entries.
It would have been nice to have Mega Man’s first NES box art up there, but oh well. It must be too famous to be bad.
