We're having another gamejam! This time the theme is games from KB's GameToilet. Have a look through and see if any of the games take your fancy - and then create it over the weekend.
A gamejam is like a hackweekend for videogames. You arrive and spend 2 days or so making a necessarily limited videogame, often with other people. It's welcome to beginners - there are plenty of drag-and-drop tools for making videogames - for old broken platformers, there's klik'n'play, for visual novels there's ren'py, and there's stuff like Stencyl if you want a visual code editor. Or if you're that kind fo person, you can write it from scratch in C++. The focus is on making some kind of interesting gameplay rather than technical brilliance. Or at least, something "interesting".
(And if you have a stubborn individual streak, and dislike making someone else's idea, even if it's brilliantly punny, then feel free to make something non-GameToilet.)
