The theme is "Spooky"

Its October and its open enough to not be too restrictive in what sort of games you can make.

Time to get the ideas flowing!

Cool. I thought I was going to have to stay up to hear the theme, so it's good it's up now.

Good luck to all. I think I will bow out for this one though (I may change my mind later). I'm not one who does well with a "spooky" theme...

You may see me as a surprise entrant at the end if something comes to me, but this is one theme I cannot really dive into.
Don't look to me but rather to the One who is the reason for what I do. :)

If you need help, send me a PM. Even if I haven't been on in the forums in ages, I still receive those messages via email notifications. You can also reply to any of my forum posts, regardless of the age (especially if I created it), and I will likely reply.

If you want to see the programming behind certain types of games, feel free to check out my "Demo-" games on StencylForge (http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,16160.0.html)

You don't have to make a horror game or anything! Just let the theme inspire you in whatever way you want mann

For fun and motivation I thought I'd mention that TouchArcade wrote an article about stencylJam!

I don't think I've ever seen them post an article on any game jam so it's pretty cool to get that acknowledgment. Now, go forth and make the games :D

Wow !! This is big news of Touch Arcade writing a article about this.

Going to try this and see what happens! From past experience Ive given up after a few days because I dont tend to do stuff very quickly - but shall see.

Haven't opened up Stencyl in nearly a year and a half until the other day - so could be interesting!

I'm coming back after a long while as well.

Hey, what's the ruling on assets (art/music/sfx) created outside the jam period? I assume the usual jam idea applies that everything is made within the jam period, yes? I can't find it explicitly mentioned anywhere.

Regular jam rules apply, but there's no way to check when assets were created so we're operating on the honour system here.

Do you have a link to the "regular jam rules" ? I've not entered a jam before, so not too sure what they are.
I was going to just grab some free to use clip art off Google for my "you have lost" screen, but I think maybe I should just dig out the pencil and art pad instead, just to be on the safe side. :)
