[POLL] Pretty Simple Game Jam 5 Vote!

For what purpose? I assume @bateske provides prizes at least partially for promoting sales by having more unique games available. I don’t think 10 versions of pac-man would help very much with this.

You could do it without prizes but might not get many entries.

Maybe cool it on nitpicking the game jam rules.

I will make a post about this, everything is on fire around me (no real danger as of now) and power might go out so congrats to the winners I’ll make an update tomorrow!

Congrats to the winners! I was really blown away by the number of games made for this Game Jam! Excellent contributions from everyone. It was a fun jam and even I got a chance to participate this time. Thank you everyone for their submissions!


And here is the code size adjusted rankings that I was able to do with the help of @mlxxxp evaluating and normalizing the sizes of all the games.

  1. Fill the cup by @Spartanfox
  2. Lion Tamer [Game Jam 5] by @filmote @vampirics and @uXe
  3. Firebox - Game Jam 5 Entry by @jhhoward
  4. Beam 'em Up [Game Jam 5] by @unwiredben
  5. New Blocks On The Kid by @bateske Disqualified!
  6. Miss Snake by @mad4j

Here is the math I used: I took the delta from the largest adjusted file size, and multiplied that times the number of votes and sorted according to that. Unscientific, sure. If someone wants to appeal the decision please just send me PM, do not make a big deal about it here in the thread this is supposed to be fun.

So what does it all MEAN?

Well the adjusted scores means, everyone will qualify for prizes according to their un-adjusted voted results, in addition:

@Spartanfox went up a level and now qualifies for a 1st place prize!
@jhhoward gets a position on the board and qualifies for 3rd place prize!
@unwiredben gains a position and now qualifies for a 4th place prize!
@bateske takes a position but is immediately disqualified for running the joint!
@mad4j also now qualifies for a 5th place prize!

(@filmote, @Vampirics, @uXe, @obono and @inajob all retain their higher level rankings from the origonal vote!)


Regular Arduboy and Micro Arcade rewards will ship in the next week! Other prizes that have not been constructed yet will be delivered on a “when ready” basis. It’s gonna be several month for those Arduboy Minis! (I’m busy trying to get FX to everyone first! If you would prefer to not wait for your prize, please PM me and I can send you a regular Arduboy Micro Arcade instead!


Admit it, you just wanted an excuse to try making a comment with a table in it. :P


I didn’t even know it was strictly possible before @mlxxxp did it

Oh! Please contact me via PM or arduboy.com/contact to let me know your address information, or I will reach out to you. Feel free to pester me about it, it’s gonna take some time, apologies!

So how frequent are the game jams?

So what happened with this?


Thanks for voting for my game, but I think there were so many others that were so cool! :slight_smile:

I got 3rd !!
I’m happy to get such a positive feedback!
Thank you for good Game Jam!


Apologies for the late response I’ve been turning my arduboy into a useless crank powered version.
But thank you to everyone who voted for my game I very much enjoyed making it and I plan to make more. Probably after my arduboy is in one piece though the poor thing.

First thing Im doing with the arduboy mini is 3d printing a BMO body for it


I am going to hit you up for one of those bodies!
