Stuck at home with nothing to do during the quarantine? Join our game jam for a fun, safe, and stay-at-home experience. The All Feathers Jam is a 7-day game-making challenge. It begins on the first Friday of the month and ends on the second Friday of the month. Participants will make a game or prototype in a week, stress-free. Whether deciding to jam with friends or going solo, remember to have fun, all skill levels are welcome. We look forward to seeing each and every game created! We'll update you on various things surrounding this event via itch.io emails. Click the "Join Jam" button to get those updates!
A game jam is a creative exercise that lets you practice making a game based on a given theme, from start to finish in a defined and limited amount of time. It’s easy to come up with numerous game ideas but actually making it a reality is a worthy challenge!
The theme will be announced on Discord on the first Friday of the month, at 1800 CST (UTC -6)
The theme is: "Light and Darkness"

The top 3 rated games will be featured automatically. However, anyone else that wants their game to appear on the Feenx Games itch.io page will have to post to Twitter with the hashtags:
#AllFeathersJam #FeenxGames for a chance to be featured.
Only one submission post per game. Don't forget to include:
Q: Where do I find teammates?
A: Check the #recruiting channel on the All Feathers Jam channel via Discord or ask anyone in the community tab.
Q: Can I update my game after I’ve submitted it?
A: Yes! You can update your game after submitting it–even after the jam.
Q: Are games rated or placed and do you offer prizes?
A: Yes, we do rate games but we do not offer prizes at this time. However, the jam isn’t a competition–it’s a community event!
Q: What do I do if my game is only ready for upload after the submission deadline?
Q: Can I start earlier than when the theme is announced?
A: It's highly recommended to start when the theme is announced so you can have a good sense of how to design the game.
