Welcome to the 8 Bits to Infinity Challenge. These small events provide miniature challenges related to games: graphics, audio, or full game prototypes.

8 Bits to Infinity is a game development community hosting regular game jams and challenges to refine our craft. All skill levels welcome! Find out more by joining us on Discord or exploring our website.

Everyone who contributes to the challenge will be able to vote on entries to determine the Challenge Winner.

Challenge #005
Create a sprite or backdrop using only shades of blue in 48 hours
The theme is SECRET

Yes, the theme is the actual idea of "secret." We're not continuing to keep the theme a secret!

Limit sprites to a maximum of 64x64 pixels and backdrops to a maximum 1280x720 pixels.

You may submit as many pieces as you wish, although we strongly suggest focusing on one work since time is limited.


Challenges are rated by entrants and contributors, so if you enter the challenge, please give feedback for and rate the other entries.

Everyone who contributed to the winning entry will receive the challenge-winner role on the Discord server.


What counts as a shade of blue?
Use your own judgment on this. Is there a color in your piece that someone could say isn't blue? Then there's a problem.

Do I need to use the theme?
It's not strictly necessary, but we would prefer if you do, and it's 1/4th of your rating.

Where can I ask more questions?
Ask in the community for this jam (see link at the top of the page) or on Discord.
