hello steemland.gif

Things are progressing right along. We know you want to play Steem Monsters. We're doing all the stuff we can to make a great game experience for you. You should be seeing our first pass at stats and written rules later this month. You should be fighting each other in September!

Steem Monsters Game Jam

In the meantime while we wait we want to build some additional Steem Monsters themed games. So, we're hosting a Game Jam.

A Game Jam is where developers have a short period of time to work alone or in teams. In this case, the goal is to build a Steem Monsters themed game. It could be a rip of Candy Crush. It could be a rip of Poker. It could be a rip of Final Fantasy tactics or even something like a Steem Monsters Tetris. RPGs like Final Fantasy IV or Ultima I are old school awesome too!

The idea is to take a week and make a fun game or novellas. Any platform works- game maker, godot, unity, unreal, rpgmaker... whatever. Whatever game looks prettiest, sticks with the monster theme, and is the most fun to play will win a LEGENDARY GOLD FOIL! Second and Third Place will get 200 and 100 sbd respectively.

😲BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!😲

Utopian-io

I'm excited to have the support of @elear and the @utopian-io community. Utopian-io is a group on Steem that helps foster, financially support, and grow the open source community. They have pledged to support open source games developed during this game jam.

Once open source games have been developed and put out for the community they'll be judged by the Utopian-io community and votes will be placed on posts detailing the games that were created. Opensource developers could find themselves winning $100-200 upvotes for these contributions as part of the development tag or a custom game development tag for this game jam.

👉👉You can find submission guidelines here- https://join.utopian.io/guidelines

Join their Discord community and get help from Moderators and Community Managers. UTOPIAN-IO DISCORD CHANNEL: https://discord.gg/QN7vnfD

👀Posts submitted for review will need the utopian-io, development, and steemmonsters tags.

Steemgg

In addition, HTML5 games participating in this Game Jam can have an additional chance of winning extra prizes by uploading their game on Steemgg. Steemgg is the newest HTML5 gaming distribution platform based on STEEM. To support the Steem Monster Game Jam, and to encourage more HTML5 game developers using the STEEM blockchain, Steemgg is offering an additional 500 SBD in total prizes for the top participating games that are uploaded onto Steemgg.

@blocktrades

They've been kind enough to offer vote support to some of the posts and games made during the Jam. It's not completely defined, but we're happy to have their support and eyes on this.

Why a Game Jam?🤔

We've been proving that blockchains and games are a great mix. We earned 200k in 2 months. That's insane. You guys are insane!!! You love games and want to see this place grow. So we are going to sponsor the action to get game makers over here! Let's see what we come up with. 😀

To be clear this is good for the Steem Ecosystem. If we can get a ton of games and gamers on the platform then we can start getting a gaming economy on the block! That would be fantastic for the price of Steem if everyone and their guildmates came over to this platform to play their favorite games, earn loot, and trade it for real value in Steem!

More than the prize money

If you create something awesome, and win, or get some audience love, we're gonna help you make a commercial go of it! Or we'll take it off your hands and send you royalties. 😍 We'll figure out a deal that works. With some hard work and talent, you'll become a business partner with the most successful blockchain game on Steem. That's a good start!

Logistics

"Where can I find out more?"
Glad you asked!
👉Check out 👉 https://itch.io/jam/steem-monsters-1000-invitational

It starts in about 2 weeks. So you have time to get your peeps together!

That's where we are hosting the game jam with hopes that crypto centric and non-crypto game devs will see it and join in!

Good job guys I am planing to buy my cards soon at least some more.

Man I am looking forward to the tournaments quite eagerly!! Dont play any games at the moment, but would love the chance to drop into a game or tournament in between blogging and music production :) Especially more interesting since it is reward based, where most games just felt too much like a waste of time to invest into it, since there was no return other than the enjoyment.

Then I rather do sports and get something for my health than play a game online :)

So for me this project is one I have my eyes on impatiently :P Already got myself a few boosters :)

Lets play some game !

Really good idea!!!
👍👍👍👍👍

“Weary is the flesh upon the stakes which yet hold sway against an onslaught of perpetual. Frailty encompasses as a swarm stings, ten upon ten into the hundreads. This place, once pastures and ponds, feeding the peace and pleasentry, is besieged. Lascivious creations of all a fowl manner spew forth from the sky, from the bowels of mantles even unto the unseen darkness of dark folds unraveling. Madnesses lays rest to civility as the monsters march upon every monument of sanctuary held dear. Conflict is inescapable, who amongst the stemmians will crawl from the depths of slumber to battle STEEMMONSTERS!?!?!?!?”

I told you it wasn’t interesting. Lame story

I mean it isn’t great, but it’s not that bad. Just buried at the bottom of comments.

So how many people are on this thread, I’m confused.?

·
·
·
·

I don’t know how many, which one are you?

Me? I’m number two, your insulting benevolence.

Awesome trick. People play game and win SBD. due to this they have double advantage that by playing game they get amusement and SBD.

Wow this is great, cant wait to play this game

I already have games to upload on SteemGG, but creating a Steem Monsters themed game seems a good idea to try.

Also, I really love how you put the jam info on itch.io!! That's an amazing idea because many itch.io users are jammers who'll read every jam rules (hence will learn about steemit.)
·

That's @aggroed's idea. Look forward to seeing your game in the Jam!

Is it a fake offer to get revenue from steemer's or something that really work ???

loved to know about the games and monster gaming

Great idea...

Wow, that's a really awesome idea! Alas, I am not any kind of coder or developer, but I certainly hope some creative things come out of this. In the meantime, I shall just continue as a "collector."

=^..^=

This is a nice game.

Congratulations @steemmonsters!
Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 1202,05

it would be good to develop a game that fulfills the functions of steem while you play and develop missions using the block chain and generate steem or sbd would be a great idea

This looks really good. Yaygo! Games is def gonna get involved. Heading over to the website now! Thanks guys!

That is a great initiative to be honest.Love the idea, I am a coder myself hope to get into it soon :D @steemmonster but I need a boost to code for this game :p

@steemmonsters Strangely, bots will produce near half of the advertisement movement on their stages. At the end of the day, the information for making notices will originate from human sources, normal buyers. Nonetheless, bots will be in charge of producing advertisement movement focusing on those shoppers. Lamentably, bots can't make this sort of activity as successfully as organizations.

I need to learn it ..:)

This is how I find myself following the candy trail like a great family guy.

This is great creativity

✅ I gave you an upvote on your post! Please give me a follow and I will give you a follow in return and possible future votes!

Thank you in advance!


Congrats, you made the #steemitminute for today!

waoooo nice game

Very nice dear brother my friend

I think it's a good idea for users, they should also make the application visually appealing to potential users and customers, but also useful and simple if you do not want it to be a mere download from markets and stores and not really used in day to day

very good article, A Game Jam is where developers have a short period of time to work alone.
