What is Bored Pixels Jam?

Bored Pixels Jam is a game jam where you make a themed pixel game for a week. I honestly just created it because I'm bored and I'm waiting for school to start. Also I love making pixel art! It'll be fun to see a bunch of bored (or not bored) people make some pixel games for everyone to enjoy.

What are the things I should know about before joining?

  • You don't have to be in a team to join you can go solo or not. There's no limit to how many team members you can have.
  • This is a ranked jam. People would be rating your game based on relevance to the theme, creativity, gameplay, visual experience, and audio experience. Based on these, awards/titles such as Theme Clinger, Most Creative, Best Gameplay, Eye Pleaser, and Ear Pleaser will be given and the winners will be announced after the two-week voting period is done.
  • You can only use assets that you make!
  • You can use any game engine.
  • Your game must be made within the time constraints of the jam.
  • You're allowed to have more than one entry but it's advised to stick to one and concentrate on polishing it.
  • The game you make must be free for people to have easy access on it.
  • NSFW content is allowed. Heavy topics are allowed as well but please refrain from being racist, sexist, transphobic, or generally a hate-spreading person.
  • Remember this is a jam for PIXEL ART games!
  • Get creative and have fun!! ;D

Are there any prizes?

Sadly, all I can give you is the validation from a title and a Discord role once you win overall. BUT!! There is also the satisfaction of finishing a game in a limited time frame plus you get to interact with other people too and enjoy their games :D
