First Post! March 13, 2020

Hey, it's Friday the 13th! Here's a not-so-terrifying First Post!


Hey Shacknews, it's time for First Post! Let's officially kick off our day of posting. Please take a look.

Happy sheep... for now.

2020 canceled

Maybe we could try blowing on the cartridge.

Gloria Gaynor with a handwashing PSA

I will survive!

Ohio will save us from the coronavirus

If Ohio fails, we have this guy.

But, how do we make money off of this panic?

Meanwhile in Michigan...

Stay safe, Shackers.

                  Me. This will push the total prize and sponsorship total I've put towards game jams over the last five Shacknews Jams and the last year of ScoreSpace Jams to a bit over $5,000.
