The theme is UNNECESSARY SEQUELS
A second entry that nobody wants or asked for.
This is a more open theme than past jams, so you'll get extra kudos from judges for liberally slathering your jam game with a thick coating of the theme. Get it in all those nooks and cranies.
Bonus idea: Produce a sequel to your own past jam game or someone else's (Remember to ask permission first!) If this is your first time, no sweat! There's a lot to this theme, so let your creativity fly.
Make a themed game in 4 weekends!
Never made a game before? Who cares. Express yourself.
The Awful Summer Jam is a relaxed game jam where you make a video game based around your interpretation of the given theme. If you do a better job than everyone else you could win some sensible prizes for your efforts.
At the end of the jam we’ll play all the games live on stream in front of a bunch of other nerds during our regular Gong Show.
* Contributors that only produce audio files for your game DO NOT count toward your team member limit (IE: Musicians, Voice Actors, Yodelers)
At the end of the jam our team of professionally trained judges will honestly review your games and pick out category winners!
