It's Big Boy Season y'all! This is a game jam created by, and for, the Waypoint community. It's a casual, unranked jam, and we encourage anyone to participate, even if you don't have any experience with game jams or game dev. In fact there's a nice list of resources/tools you can use to help you along further down on this page!
Firstly create an Itch.io account if you haven't already, and then simple press the "Join Jam" button at the top of this page. When creating your game please follow the rules listed in the section below. You have from midnight 7/1 until 8:00 AM EST 8/1 to finish and submit your game. We chose a longer period than many other jams to discourage people from overworking themselves or stressing about deadlines, so please take your time and stay healthy! Entries will not be ranked, but please play others' entries and leave your (positive) thoughts.
The Waypoint moderators have been kind enough to create a game jam channel in the Waypoint Community Discord for us, and you're also welcome to post in the announcement thread about finding partners. The best way to group up though is probably to use the forum functionality here on the Itch jam's page to post about your skillset, or your game idea and what kind of partners you're in need of. Then you have an entire thread to discuss your idea :D!
Getting started making games is easier than ever with a huge variety of game engines, and tons of tutorials available. The first step is to pick a game engine. Here are some of the most common choices, but there are many, many more. Also check out this rad site Wazanator put together for information on useful jam tools
As said before, There are many more options, but these are the ones that first came to mind. Unity is the engine I personally have the most experience with and it's a good all-rounder, and makes almost all tools available without limit to free tier users. If you're scared of the programming don't be. There are lots of tutorials you can follow along with and just make thematic modifications to fit the jam.
Good luck Jammers! If you have any questions feel free to DM Onarru, Wazanator, or OneGameDad on the Waypoint community forums
