Create an Adventure Game in Two Weeks!

We've seen adventure games grow and evolve so much since their humble beginnings. Some might argue it's the puzzles, others might say it's retro graphics, or perhaps the storyline - or maybe even a little bit of everything. An adventure game can mean so many different things.

We want to encourage creativity and trying new things, so with that in mind, we want you to make whatever an adventure game means to you. Text adventures, modern 3D environments, point-and-clicks, hybrids, everything inbetween, or something entirely different. We love it all!

It doesn't matter if you were just introduced to the genre, or have been playing these kinds of games since you were a kid. It doesn't matter if you're already a developer and working for a company, or if you've never even thought about making a game before this moment. Whatever your situation, we're inviting you to join us!

Rules:

We want to give you plenty of space for creativity, so the rules are pretty simple.

  1. You have exactly two weeks to make an adventure game. By "adventure game" we mean an interactive experience with enough content to tell some form of story, explore a character, or have some sort of adventure, however you define that.
  2. Constructing the game itself is not allowed until the beginning of the jam date. However, you are allowed to assemble your team (if you choose to have one), write your story/dialogue, and map out your game now.
  3. You are free to reuse any assets that you have made in the past, or use freeware or commercially available assets. This includes music, sound effects, models, et cetera. We only ask that you do not begin collecting or creating any assets specific to your AdventureJam entry until the jam begins! (If using freeware or commercially available assets, please credit the original creators.)

Voting:

Once the jam has ended, all participants are encouraged to play and rate as many entries as possible. Voting will continue for one month.

Voting Categories:

Whether graphically or through descriptive narration, how memorable was the environment? How much did you feel transported into the game's world?

Characterization

How memorable were the characters? How engrossing was their dialogue? How powerfully did you connect with them?

Mental Engagement

Whether through puzzles, mini games, or perhaps just a mysterious storyline that kept you guessing, how much did this entry engage the gears of your mind?

Emotional Engagement

Did this entry make you laugh? Tear up? Jump out of your seat? Warm your heart? Did it make your skin crawl? Did it give you butterflies? How much did it emotionally effect you, at a gut level?

Lasting Impression

How haunting was this entry? Will you still be thinking about it next week? Next month? Did this game have that can't get it out of my head factor?
