I wasn’t aware of OceanJam until I saw the games posted. Is there possibility of notifying/subscribing somehow via email so that we’re alerted next time a jam is planned?
They will post on thr Forum when a new game jam starts - they even let us vote for the theme! Keep looking out - but since a jam just ended, it’s probably going to take a couple months before the next
Exactly! For those of us who don’t need to be active on the forums then it’s not practical to notice when a jam is starting. I’ve missed a couple now and was hoping to sign up with my child.
Hmm, good question! Adafruit runs a monthly MakeCode Newsletter that usually has info about the jams: https://www.adafruitdaily.com/, we haven’t synced our game jam dates up with their newsletter release dates but that’s definitely something we should do going forward. We also publish the jams on https://makecode.itch.io/ and publicize on Twitter (http://twitter.com/msmakecode) if you are on either of those platforms.
If you have any suggestions for good avenues to publicize the jams we’d definitely be open to check them out also!
I feel like all of those require you to actively watch noisy stream of info? I signed up to itch.io notifications for makecode which hopefully helps.
How about a simple mailing list?
