For the current jam in C3 you should target PC. I published a game for phones on Newgrounds and got bad reviews because it was difficult to play.

As for getting a team, communicate with people working with Construct, in the communication channels, on Newgrounds, etc...
Also it is not an obligation to team up, you can work alone.

And finally finding out if your ideas are good, make a quick prototype and have people testing out to see if it is fun or not.

A game jam is first and foremost making a game, only in less time than usual. But all the building steps are still the same.
If you made games in the past and hadn't them tested before release, then you were doing it wrong.

That's what feedback request is all about.

Hi Lucky,

To put you on your way, I am creating a mozaics game in the 3 colors which Ashley use in his avator. Red, Blue and white. I create triangular, rectangular, square shapes in Affinity Designer of 32 and 64 pixels. There is a grid where a player can put in those pieces.

As a start I intent to use the C3 logo made in those pieces.

This is my very first participation in a game jam and like you I do not find it easy. On this moment I am in the planning and design stage. Saturday I arrive back home in Gaborone and then I have much more time to start actually programming it.

I only use C3 for this Mosaics game. When the game jam is over I will wait until we can buy a license and then continue adding new colors, shapes and features. Also like to polish the game graphics.

Success Lucky, just follow your imagination and creativity.

Chris
I will keep my promise to you.
