Make as many games as we can! Put them in a kiosk in the expo at the Game Developer's Conference!
LET'S MAKE A BUNCH OF GAMES! AND TAKE THEM TO GDC!
We're raising money for space/kiosk in the 2012 Game Developer's Conference Expo!
Over the weekend of February 25-27th, everyone is invited to make as many games as you can and submit them over at Glorious Trainwrecks Dot Com (event page) and then in March we'll have a fancy launcher showing them off in a kiosk at the 2012 Game Developer's Conference!
Anyone and everyone is welcome to make games with us! So spread the word! Even if you haven't made a game before, you might be able to quickly learn one of the many great game-making tools that are out there! Check out the event page on Glorious Trainwrecks or the faq below for more info!
I can't wait to see all the crazy things everyone makes this February! And what expo-goers think of the games in March!
Thanks to Dan FitzGerald (@dorkus1218) for making the logo and video!
A Pirate Kart is a collection of all the games we can make! Some are awesome, some are terrible, many are both!
It's a reference to the massive collections of pirated games that appeared on pirate multicarts. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicart#Pirate_multicarts)
Anyone! Everyone we can get! Spread the word!
Get yourself comfortable with some development environment, then when Pirate Kart Weekend arrives, MAKE GAMES LIKE CRAZY!!!
SWEET! First, sign up for a Glorious Trainwrecks account if you haven't yet (you can do that here). Then click this, fill in the form, upload a game and a screenshot and submit and then YOUR GAME IS IN THE KART!
$3150 is going to the GDC Play (http://www.gdconf.com/events/gdcplay.html) kiosk. That leaves $850 to help cover the costs of providing the rewards, Kickstarter's cut (~5%), the cut taken for payment processing (2-5%), any additional costs involved in getting the kiosk set up (which may mean purchasing or shipping a PC), and costs for hosting the final Pirate Kart download. Exactly how much that stuff will cost depends on how things work out, but I doubt $850 will fully cover it.
