Play Hobo Bob!

Here is our second Pixel Love choice, Hobo Bob. This game was created by Wolve. Many of you may know him from his Nitrome Jam entry: The Mind.

This endless runner really is action packed and very addictive!

We found the best finger placement for this game is similar to home row, but with your right hand shifted one key to the left... so:

LEFT HAND
A S D F

RIGHT HAND
H J K L

It is very satisfying completing this one! Once completed, you are given an Infinite mode to play.

Have fun, we'll bring you more Pixel Love next week!

Play Hare's Harvest

Hey Nitromians!

We've noticed that there has been a slight shortage of Pixel Love games whilst we were jamming, so to make up for that, we'll be showcasing two great pixel loves this week.

First off, we have Hare's Harvest, a great little turn based game developed by Michael Cook.

The game has some great mechanics. Using burrows, stomped burrows, foxes, dogs and farmers, your aim is to make your way through the farmers crop of carrots. There are some great puzzles in this one, with some real head scratchers.

Click to Play Hare's Harvest!

We hope you enjoy playing this one!

Stay tuned today for the second Pixel Love game choice!

New jam skin!

Hey Nitromians,

Phew... what a hot and busy week it’s been over at Nitrome HQ. We have a brand new site skin for the website, featuring lots of characters from the #nitromejam.

For those of you who missed it we have finally sorted the issues for the #nitromejam games. Results for the winner will be announced next Friday so you can play, comment and vote for them here.

Thanks again for everybody who took part in the jam and all our fans for being so awesome, it really was great fun.

Next week we should be getting things back to normal. That means a regular Monday Pixel love slot, back to work on updating the accounts and continuing making some brand new games (more news on these when they’re ready).

Until Monday, have a great weekend.

p.s What's you're favourite Jam game?

Nitrome =D

Fantastic Fanart!

Hey Nitromians,

http://bit.ly/1ub1vI1

We have just noticed this fantastic piece of Nitrome fan art which includes the first 100 Nitrome games. Its a serious masterpiece and all of us here at Nitrome HQ are in awe at the amount of work that has been put into this.

Huge thanks and congrats to CartoonSpider over on Deviant Art =)

To fully appreciate the piece make sure you click and zoom in. We had a lot of fun trying to spot all of the nice characters and game references.

Hi Nitromian’s and Nitrome Jam developers,

You’ve probably noticed that we have been struggling to get all of the game Jam entries live on the NitromeJam page and also that various elements such as ‘comments’ on those pages and ‘voting’ are not functioning correctly.

Firstly we would like to say a huge SORRY for this!

We thought we had everything in place for this to run smoothly as an event, but we made some mistakes and we want to hold our hands up to that. Should we run another #Nitromejam again (and we hope we will as the entries have been great) we will learn from this and be sure to have a more stable system in place next time.

One major problem we have had means that we are not actually sure we have all the entries up…

Hi Nitromians,

after a relaxing weekend recouperating from the Nitrome Jam we are back in the office and finally ready to reveal the games to you all. We have had a few teathing problems getting them up as you may have noticed but we think we have it sorted so we will be going through and setting them live as quickly as we can.

We have truely been blown away not only that all the 7 Nitrome teams managed to complete a game in a week but also at the sheer quality of some of the games that were submitted from outside of the Nitrome office. The level of support for the Jam has been truely humbling.

We always said in the office that we would see how this Jam went before commiting to any future events but we all had such fun this time that I think it is highly likely that we will see an NitromeJam 2015 :)

Hello Nitromians and especially to developers involved in the Nitrome Jam. We are currently wrapping things up on our games in the Nitrome office and officially you should submit your game by 12pm today!

We will be sorting and officially launching the games on the site on Monday when we get in so as a nicety we have decided to allow you all a little cool down time over the weekend. Games should still be submitted by the deadline today but if you want to squash a few bugs or add last minute polish then feel free to resubmit over the weekend.

You can submit via the Nitrome Jam website or via email (jam.entries@nitrome.com) if you prefer or have problems.

Get ready to Jam!

Hi Nitromians,

Have you all voted yet on the theme for the Jam? If not you only have until Monday 9.15 GMT to do so! If your logged into your Nitrome account you can vote for your favourite theme below:

Click on the theme below to vote!

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!

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…

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!
