Good tidings, Bitsy nerds! Emma Daues  is here to host the 2nd annual Bitsy Community Winter Holiday Event! Last year's jam was an incredible time and I'm excited to do it all over again! Let's give the gift of Bitsy! 🎉

Like last year, this is an event hosted through the Bitsy Discord (Bitscord) where members of the Bitsy community make Bitsy games for each other in the style of a Secret Santa gift exchange. This jam page will stay unlisted & only accessible through the Bitscord until the gift exchange has ended.

Hey, dude, what's a 'Secret Santa'?

A Secret Santa is a gift-giving exchange where everyone who participates is given the name of another participant, usually chosen at random. You then secretly get a gift for them (usually involving espionage missions where you have to surreptitiously find out what your person likes without giving yourself away), and then at a later date, everyone exchanges presents, revealing who got gifts for who! In this case, we'll all be giving each other Bitsy games!

Okay, so how will this work?

First, to participate, you will need to sign up using this sheet right here. Please fill in all information to the best of your ability! You have until SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH to sign up for the event!

On SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1ST, you will receive the name of your Secret Santee, the person you will be making a Bitsy for. Then you can start working on your Bitsy game!

Have your Bitsy ready by WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25TH, and submit it to this jam page! (Jam submissions are extended through the 24th - 26th to account for those who might be unavailable on the actual Christmas Day.) Then, alert your Santee that there's a Bitsy gift for them to play!

Cool, can we have a bit more rules?

  • The person you're assigned to will give you 1-3 one-word prompts to use as a starting-point for inspiration when making your Bitsy game. Incorporate these prompts however you see fit!
  • Your Bitsy game can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it, but I suggest making it with at least 1 minute of play time so that everyone has a little bit of Bitsy to appreciate!
  • Hacks? No Hacks? Go for it!!!!
  • Please do your best to make something nice for your assigned person! But of course, I know things happen, so if you have to bail out for any reason whatsoever, please please PLEASE let us know as early as you can so we can make arrangements accordingly. You can also sign up on the Sign-Up Sheet just to be a backup, and make a game only if someone has to bail.
  • This goes without saying, but don't be mean or hateful in your games! And steer clear of more sensitive topics unless you know 100% for sure that your Santee is okay with that!!! 💦💦💦

Have fun, [Tiny Tim voice] and Bitsycat bless us, every one!
