From the look of the previous comments it would seem that Toast and Survival are the forerunners but maybe they are just the voices of the vocal minority?

If you have voted for one of those two have you properly considered your vote? You're voting for Survival because Minecraft type games are cool right? Remember we only have 5 days to make a game so a Minecraft type game of any size is hig…

Hi Nitromians,

We have added a few more people to the Nitrome Jam page that have confirmed that they are getting involved in the Jam next week!

We have a few ex Nitrome members getting involved too that have since gone on to make their own studios. Iggy Zuk who went on to make Deadly 30 for Steam will be heading back to Nitrome Towers. Going even further back in time we have Carl Trelfa who went on to form ‘the Podge’ will be back too….I don’t even think he has even been…

Thanks for all of your theme suggestions for the imminent Nitrome Game Jam. We've been through them all and there were some really great suggestions... too many suggestions :)

Click on the theme below to vote!

Voting will end on 2nd June 09:15 GMT. We will post the winning theme in the blog and on the Nitrome Jam page.

Play Aeolus Shift!

Today's Pixel Love game is Aeolus Shift.

This game has some great physics mechanics with some really interesting use of gravity. Your main goal is to emit pixels to fill up crates that are dotted around the level. Throw in pixel colour infections and switches and you get a really enjoyable experience!

Have fun, we'll bring you another pixel love game next week!

PixelJam joins the Jam!

Hi Nitromians,

one of our favourite indie devs PixelJAM has said they are going to be entering the NitromeJam! Not only are they well respected for their pixel artwork but they are so well prepared for the Jam that they even had the foresight to put Jam in their company name!

PixelJam are probably best known for their pixelart based Dino Run, Gamma Bros and Potatoman Seeks the Troof games. Recently though they teamed up with artist James Kochalka for the not pixel art but equally awesome game Glorkian Warrior the Trials of Glork on iOS. 

All the games mentioned we highly recommend checking out! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the NitromeJam guys!

Hi Nitromians,

We are thrilled to announce that our very talented friends at Halfbot are going to be participating in the Nitrome Jam! If you don't know them they are the guys that made the very awesome 'the Blocks Cometh' on iPhone and also helped Vlambeer bring the equally awesome 'Super Crate Box' to iOS to boot! 

In case your wondering the image used here is from Halfbots new game 'Bullet Age'. It looks set to take the studio to a whole new level of awesomeness so check it out if you haven't already.

We have had lots and lots of people join the jam so far and while many of them may just be over enthusiastic to sign up we know that within that there are going to be some great games for sure that would not exist if we had not opened the jam to people outside of Nitrome. We will continue to highlight some of the people who commit to being involved in Nitrome Jam 2014 as we run up to the event!

H Nitromians,

This week's Pixel Love game is the super addictive Prominent Mountain by ABA Games!

This is a super fast-paced avoider in which you build the road for your vehicle to bounce along. You have to try to get "air" to gain points whilst also watching out for those dangerous red blocks of doom.

How many points can you get in this? Let us know!

Click here to play Prominent Mountain!

Have fun everyone, we'll bring you another Pixel Love game next week!

Hey Nitromians,

The Nitrome Game Jam webpage is now live!

The page includes details regarding rules, technology and size restrictions of your entry’s.

Anyone who would like to participate in the Nitrome Game Jam can head over to the site and sign up now.

Finally were asking for a couple of volunteers...

All of the Nitrome staff will be involved making the games, but we would really love to let you all know what's happening as it happens. Therefore if anyone is interested and able to come to the Nitrome office that week and maybe take some photos and write some blog posts please get in touch. Support@nitrome.com 

You need to be over 18 and we may need to meet you beforehand so we can show you the ropes (please note this is a first come first served basis). On the other hand if no one is interested then we’ll just post as often as we can but it may be a quieter week.

Have a great weekend =)

Name that Jam

Wow, you all really liked our Nitrome Jam announcement huh? Over 500 comments and counting in just two days.

We have been reading your comments and there are some really awesome suggestions for Jam themes. However some people appear to be a little confused on what we're asking for when we say “suggest a theme”. So just to make it a little clearer on what we are looking for:

-A theme is NOT a game idea. So anyone writing a paragraph suggesting what game they would like us to make is kinda missing the point, sorry! 

-Consider that MANY people are going to be tackling this theme separately so anything too specific would result in a lot of similar games.

-We aren’t looking for sequel suggestions or game ideas including our characters.

-As a rule of thumb a theme is made up or one or two words, rather than a description of something.

Some of our favourite suggestions so far are: Dreams, Reverse, Toast, Growth, Space.

Looking forward to reading some more. =)

New Icon game incoming!

Hi Nitromians,

later this week were going to be releasing a brand new icon game! It is one of a few online games that we are working on.

We haven't done one in a while and we felt it would be cool to go back to the format as it was one that we liked a lot. Having the game so small lets us experiment with some crazy ideas. Check out the preview gif :)

Play Ground Zero!

Hi Nitromians!

Today's pixel love comes in glorious ASCII form as stealth game demake G0 (Ground Zero) made by hexDecimal

We really love the way the lighting has been created in this game. We felt it essential to the sneak and hide atmosphere. The randomly generated levels make for great replay value too.

This really is the finest barebones approach to a tactical roguelike stealth game.

Click to Play G0!

Have fun everyone. We'll bring you another pixel love next week!
