**If you'd like to play along but aren't feeling inspired, use this weeks theme for a starting point.
Current Theme, due April 10th: Small vs Large!
The week starts/ends on Monday, but it's not really a hard deadline. The important thing is to finish something you're proud of!
Hey everyone, been a couple years since I posted here on the forum but in all that time I never stopped working with jMonkey. By the end of January I realized I've been trying to make games for almost 4 years now and have never finished a single game. All that changed 2 weeks ago when I challenged myself to finish a game in 1 weekend. The idea came when scrolling through the forums and saw a comment about being able to clone Asteroids in 3 days (I believe it was @pspeed who made the suggestion to another user, so thank you!)
So I challenged myself to make 1 game a week for the next 50 weeks at least. These games will likely all be crappy clones, but I'm excited about giving it a go. 2 weeks ago was asteroids, this weekend was a snake game, next weekend will likely be moon lander? I'm putting them up on a blog so you can give them a try
I'll also put the challenge out there for anyone who's been stuck in a rut for years slaving away on a masterpiece that looks less and less like it'll be finished every day you work on it. I was there for awhile. Don't give up! But seriously, take a break and make a game over the upcoming weekend. Post it, link it here and I promise I'll play! Can't be much worse than what I've just shared
