WHAT IS THE 2600 JAM?
The idea of the 2600 Jam is to create a game inspired by the aesthetic and feel of the games of the Atari 2600. You can use any engine you have at your disposal, just try and replicate the limitations of the 2600 hardware. You can work alone or in a team. Just have fun and make some retro style video games.

Below are some videos that demonstrate the look and feel of Atari 2600 games, generally very low detail sprites and limited sound capability. Also I have attached an image of the 2600's colour palette.
