7DFPS 2014 warmup
7DFPS 2014! It's that time - time to start posting your goals, ideas and let your imagination run wild while we wait for the third 7dfps to begin o/ During the warmup phase as is tradition - 7HFPS takes place! It happens over this weekend (Oct31 - Nov2 2014) so be sure to pump yourself up and you read that correctly - make a game in 7 hours. @sosowski will be jamming it up - there is a specific post about 7hfps here, and will tweet from the @7dfps account as well. One important change this year is that we have partnered with itch.io, an excellent digital market place to host the games. For everyone else, feel free to post about 7dfps/7hfps, seek collaborators and hang around while we finalize the website details and get everything in place for the challenge. The website will be tweaked as we move closer to the time frame, so don't be surprised by explosions. If you're on social things - - tweet @7dfps - hashtag #7dfps - hashtag #7hfps Come in, hang out, and bring some friends! And remember - 7dfps is for everyone. Be excellent to each other.

Cheating my way through 7DFPS
I'm super stoked to be able to do the jam this year, but I have a confession to make. I am going to cheat. I mean, technically, according to the FAQ, cheating is allowed. So it's not really cheating. But I'll still feel bad. I'm planning to work on a pretty ambitious project. Basically, the game is going to be a template for users of the Torque 3D engine who want to make an FPS. The engine already has an FPS template, but it's kind of difficult to work with, and doesn't actually have many good FPS features. There are more details here, including a link to the blog post where I announce the thing and people discuss it. So, despite 7DFPS's motto of 'keeping shooters interesting', I will be striving to make a fairly run-of-the-mill example shooter, so that other people can make interesting shooters. Hurrah. Features I want include:
  • Co-op multiplayer
  • Vehicles
  • Enemy AI
  • Clean code... which will probably be the most challenging part!
So how is this cheating? Well, I've already started working on it. "You dastardly villain!" you may exclaim, but wait, attend my tale before leaping to a conclusion! Because of the ambition of this project, and because I have an important exam at the end of the jam week, I have decided to split the task. This week, I will be creating the game's infrastructure: menus, options, the client/server architecture (including, hopefully, a master server), etcetera. I'll also be drawing up level design, and implementing similar gameplay systems for practise. Next week, during the jam itself, myself and hopefully a small cadre of elite superheroes will be creating the game's actual content - meshes, environments, level scripts and so on. Here's the main menu so far: Not too exciting, but I like it. The most impressive part is not its appearance, but the fact that it works with mouse, keyboard, and gamepad. This is not something Torque templates have done before. Seems basic, right? Well I think it should be. Please forgive me.

Hello World!
by HER0
I am Hero. Hero I am. Do you like Linux and game jam? I am on SteamLUG's 7dfps 2014 team. We are continuing last year's project (Haunt, an asymmetrical multiplayer game) but switching from the Source SDK 2013 to Godot Engine. Should be fun!

Hello 7DFPS
by Aske
Heeey, have you missed me? Probably not. You don't know me. I've never done a 7DFPS before, so you can't in any possible way have missed me. Well, I'm gonna make a game for the 7DFPS, because I've never done a 3d game before, so I thought I might as well try it.. That's all, hope you have a wonderful day :D
