Hey everyone, it's that wonderful time of year again!

Yes, I am referring to two things - the wonderful Holiday Season and the upcoming month of NaGaCreMo, where you have from the beginning of the New Year until the 31st of January to make any kind of game you can dream of!

To sign up, all you need to do is make your pledge in the following format (or anything similar!):

Quote: "I, [name], pledge to make a complete working game/game demo/app/general program by Januray 31st, 2014"


Anything goes! You can make it with Unity3D, Panda3D, Ogre, AppGameKit, DBP, FPSC, literally ANY engine! The only stipulation is that if you are making your game/app in an engine that's not made by TGC, you can't post a WIP thread, BUT you can post updates on your project in this here thread!

You may also choose to continue work on a game you're already making - perhaps by completing a demo! The choice is yours - either make something entirely new, or continue work on a current project!

If anybody would like to make a banner for people to put in their signatures, simply post it here! Anybody can take whichever one they like best, or if people vote on a "best" one, we can deem it to be the "official" image. No banner can be bigger than 600x120px!

Now, you're probably wondering what the point of all this. It's simple, really! By making a pledge to complete a project in a one-month time frame, you're motivating yourself to get something done! If you complete your goal, imagine the gratification you'll feel!

So what're you waiting for? Sign up now, and get on this list!

DA PLEDGEZ THUS FAR:

I, Blobby 101, pledge to make a complete working game/game demo by January 31st, 2014

As for WIP threads, I think in past years we've allowed WIPs for non-TGC products, so long as they're in Geek Culture instead of the WIP board.

Good luck, though! I think I'll be trying to get a short game I'm working on with Deathead at the moment done. (It's a spinoff from my 2012 NaGaCreMo project, which is somehow still in development, only now in Unity3D xD).

I can have a crack at doing a banner if you like?

Yeah, I think you're right... I just wasn't sure.

@MrValentine:
NICE! I really like the colors and the angles!

@Virtual Nomad:

NICE job! I really like the minimalism.

If anyone else would like to make more banners, feel free! The more the merrier!

I'll update the pledge list!

I know this is not the Posting Competition, but I call shenanigans

Yeah I suffer from Shift Key paralysis too A LOT! I wish they would put it where the caps lock key is much easier to press and often pressed by accident

Cheers!

Looking forward to seeing the action in here! I am unsure if I can contribute any prizes this year as my business is focussed now for the foreseeable future... but I will see if there is anything I can contribute

I Seppusworth the 7th pledge to make a complete working web application by January 31st, 2014

As I'm doing an ASP.NET course, I feel I should have something to show for it at the end of January to prepare for the exam.

I'm still getting to grips with ASP.NET, only covered half of the basics, so got a lot of ground to cover still. But I've just started working into CSS Stylesheets, still a newbie with them.

But what I'm doing for this NaGaCreMo is creating a website for my Roleplaying group on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. We currently use an enjin site found here. Now, I don't expect to compete with enjin, but instead to create something more RP focused.

This is my first attempt at making something from a CSS stylesheet:

Looks pretty good!

My game idea is pretty basic. It's going to be a 3D platformer (like I've been wanting to do for years!), but the main story will revolve around shapes as characters (aptly named "The Shapelies"), and the character you control will be a square.

The story is that there is a war between the Triads (Triangles) and Cubelettes (Squares). The Triads sneak into the main character's town and kidnaps the leader of the Cubelettes (name undetermined), so it becomes the main character's mission to reduce the leader and end the war.

There is a lot more detail than that, that's just the gist of it!

I'm going to get a head start on it and begin developing the media tonight... it's so cool that Unity can import .blend files, I can design the majority of the static level parts in there and then just load it in!

So, sorry for the bump, but is anybody else interested?

Plenty of time to make the pledge and give yourself that motivation! Yeehaw!

EDIT: Also, has anyone ever thought of making a website (like maybe through Weebly) that everyone can post their WIP threads on, specifically for NaGaCreMo? If not, I probably will find a free host that supports forums, that way people can have a place completely dedicated to it.

EDIT 2: OK, I just went ahead and set one up with webs.com. Here it is so far!

Maybe after this year's I'll code a site and maybe even host it. However, for this NaGaCreMo, I'll stick to my current website idea.

Since when did NaGaCreMo become a competition?

Also, the whole point of the site I'm setting up is just so that people can post their WIP threads there without having to worry about TGC forum rules. It's also going to have a dedicated Photo Gallery, which pledgers can use to upload their screenshots. Think of it like a NaGaCreMo archive!

But if no one's going to use it, tell me now before I waste anymore time on it...

Wow, that's brilliant.

And since I just realised that I never actually pledged yet, I'll pledge once the thread gets created or moved to that board.

never really checked into NaGaCreMo, but now that I do, It's GREAT that it's gotten its own board - that on its own caught my interest
and it's an amazing thing in itself - I'll keep an eye on this part of the forum~

Yes post away any WIPs from any tools. This section is totally off topic from TGC.

This applies to the new board only WIP threads in other locations will be locked.

I will make a sticky about it.

I'm not entirely sure what I'll make, but I made a programming language that compiles to HTML5 and it's getting pretty functional, so I'd like to test it on something of a decent size.

First post updated with your pledge!

I've decided that since I'm going to be using Unity and still need to learn quite a lot about it, I'm going to make the "Balls of Steel" game that GameInstitute.com uses to show you how to make basic games in Unity, although I'm going to change quite a bit about it and probably change the name...
