Ok, 2 things.

1) sopuli.xyz is down, so i am using fapsi.be (thanks @kromonos) to post on Lemmy again (that worked well the last time).

fapsi.be/post/2044

Federation-provided robustness in action ^_^

2) The federation of comments is currently buggy. I have discovered that there were comments under previous one that i did not see from sopuli.

FediJam III: The Network Was Hungry will start Sunday 18:00 and go for the whole week until next Sunday 23:59 UTC!

This is a response to requests to have fedijams longer, we are trying out new format.

Hopefully, the week will also allow for really cool (and maybe federated? *wink*) games to be developed.

Join the jam at:
itch.io/jam/fedijam-3
And our Matrix room at

When should we have the next Fedijam (choose so that you can attend)?

FediJam2 has now closed submissions.
This time there were 6 participants, but sadly, other participants (besides me) were not there in time.

Yet, i would recommend all participants to make short writeups and post them in the near days (maybe on plume, writeas or git).

I will boost them.
It is important to transfer the experience (and also see where the jam itself fell short)

itch.io/jam/fedijam-2

More support:
@uberstar promises to make a video with submitted games after the jam.
The jam is small, and having videos that early would be great!

Now uses , , and and actually starts to feel like a creature.


The way how servers expose the tag feeds to the outside world is really cool.
You can make your tag like and let anyone without account to look at it with a link like this:
mastodon.technology/tags/fedij

I have included it at FediJam jampage, and essentially it now has a live newsfeed to which every jammer can push their progress and which is readable to the whole world.

If it was embeddable (better: js-free), that would be even more rad.

The FediJam 2 has started, but you can still join it and submit your game right until submissions are closed (which is Sunday Midnight UTC).

I wish all participants good luck and remind that you can post your progress with tag to be boosted.

(see the thread for the jam link)

Ok, FediJam has the first teamup proposal!
@controlfreak is looking for a team, and proposing help wih sound, conceptual design, writing and a bit of coding.

itch.io/jam/fedijam-2/topic/16

One can also propose teamups by tagging , i will boost them.

The second Fediverse Jam (now FediJam), named The Handshake in October, now can be joined.
It will start at Friday 18:00 UTC and will go on until the Sunday midnight (i did not like working through Sunday night).

itch.io/jam/fedijam-2

Our new tag is and we also now have a matrix room:
matrix.to/#/#fedijam:m.wfr.moe

Propose a theme there or via reply to mastodon.technology/@houkimena
Hope to jam with you.

Propose a theme for FediJam 2!

(depending on the number of proposals, i will choose randomly, count likes or make a poll to filter the top 3)


@hbenjamin

Made a Matrix room for the upcoming NEXT Fediverse Jam.
matrix.to/#/#fedijam:m.wfr.moe
( :m.wfr.moe )

Come in, especially if you want to help with org or just share your thoughts!


Appears (themed Decentralized) occured one day too early to meet the actual Decentralization Day, also known as
" FB, Instagram, WhatApp and Discord going whoopsie"
Otherwise, we would be one of the few jams not affected.


As promised, i post the links to the (one) git repo submitted so that there is no need to go to itch if one does not want to.

notabug.org/Houkime/heartless_


So, the first ever has just closed submmissions.
Sadly, out of 3 participants only me was able to submit in time (and i made it in literally last minutes).

@hbenjamin and the other participant, if you are bit too late, i can generate a late submission link for you.

My game is supersimple (and trash), but i learned a lot more and a new framework with it. And i managed to do it in the last day.

Thx for coming to this first test run!

One more note about Itch jams.
If there are no participants (authors do not count), they are not displayed on the timeline and are not even searchable.
So, initial participants are all resposibility of the hoster.

For at this stage this does not change much since our target audience is right here on the , it was meant to be external to Itch, and only the second goal is to bring more peope to Fedi.
