Flash Forward Jam

(Promo art by @zattdott)


Flash emulation with Ruffle is getting THAT good - which is why I wanted to help fund the prize pool for this game jam. Who doesn't want to see a bunch of brand new Flash games to celebrate the preservation efforts of interactive media dear to our hearts??


There's $2K in prizes on the line AND the deadline's been extended until the end of February, so I thought I'd make a lil' cheat sheet to incentivize people to MAKE SOMETHIN'! It doesn't even have to be extravagant, or a "game". Pico's School was made before Flash had variables!

For more advanced stuff, try the old ActionScript 2 documentation.


The only other roadblock I can think of is getting a copy of Flash that has ActionScript 2 (the only thing Ruffle supports right now). Well, my buddy Megacharlie has ya covered with his archive of old versions of Flash! See if you can't get a version running. I know CS5.5 works for me and has AS2 support!


When you upload your jam entry to Newgrounds, tag it with "flash-forward-jam" !!!

And don't forget to check off "Works with Ruffle emulation"! Kinda the whole point of the jam.


And yes, even though I kicked off the prize pool for this jam I had to take the excuse to make a lil' Flash game. Expect that soon! I know Tom Fulp + Jeff and PsychoGoldfish are making new Flash games for the jam for fun too. :D

February's gonna be exciting to see!!! Good luck, interweb creatives, and make crap like it's 1995 or somethin'!


IT LIVESSSSS!!
