Nerditis reader Vortex Gear tipped the game desk earlier this week of the existence of “Candy Jam”, and now I fear for his safety. The GameJam event was organized by indie developers “because trademarking common words is ridiculous and because it gives us an occassion to make another GameJam,” and is accepting entries all the way up to February 3rd, 2014. There are no clear limitations of the types of games to be submitted other than it has to be “a game involving candies”, so it’s safe to assume that any type of game is accepted so long as it has “the word “Candy” several times” as well as the words “Scroll”, “Memory”, “Saga”, “Apple” and “Edge” possibly yielding bonus points.
Clearly the seeds of rebellion have been sowed and its bound to be something big, and that worries me because the last time a rebellion got this big, an entire planet got blown up by a Not-A-Moon Laser.
I am however 100% behind this idea, because industry tyrants who exploits the system like King.com Limited deserve nothing less but to be absolutely ridiculed and laughed out of the room. Despite of my fears of a mad tyrant punching my clock or at the very least emptying my wallet with mountains of lawsuits for disobeying his totalitarian candy regime, allow me to say this:
Sons of the Console Wars, daughters of the gaming revolution, my brethren! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when our gaming passion fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship in favor of racial slurs and “Yo Mama” jokes, but it is not this day! An hour of spawn camping and cheat codes, when the DLC and micro-transactions rains from the sky and all of gaming world comes crashing down! BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY! This day, we FIGHT! By all that you hold dear on all this time gaming on this good Earth, I bid you STAND! MEN AND WOMEN OF GAMING CULTURE!!
