Participation

Anyone (who is legally allowed to have an itch.io and discord account) is allowed to partake.

Teams are allowed, up to 4 members. To make finding teammates easier we made a crowdforge page.

Process

It's really easy to submit a game! (well the "making a game" part is a bit more difficult)

  1. Click the "Join" button at the top (next to the countdown timer)
  2. Find a team (optionally) at: https://crowdforge.io/jams/brackeys
  3. Join our Discord Server at: https://discord.gg/brackeys
  4. ???
  5. Make awesome games!

The jam will last from 25th August 9 a.m. (UTC+2) to 1st September 9 a.m. Voting will be on until 22nd September 9 a.m.

Rules

  • NSFW games aren't allowed
  • Source must be included
  • Everything has to be made in the jam (you can't use code or assets you made before or from other sources)
  • All game engines (and frameworks) are allowed
  • Generators (BFXR...) are allowed.
  • Assets from the asset store aren't allowed (exceptions are: TextMesh Pro, ProBuilder, Post Processing Stack, and other Unity owned assets that won't affect the game and are just to help a bit, meaning standard assets aren't allowed)
  • After the jam is over you are allowed to make adjustments to your entry but you have to provide a change log

Tips

Aim very small, a week may seem like a lot of time to make a big project, but it never works out that way. Keep it small, make a working game very fast and keep adding features and polishing from there.

Don't worry if you come out of this jam with a not so great game. The point of the jam is to have fun working on new, interesting concepts. Think of it as a very stressful prototyping phase. Go crazy with ideas! After the jam you are able to polish it out and get a much better game out of it.

As this is a programming focused Discord server, don't worry about crappy programmer's art. The goal is to have a fun, working game.

If you are stuck on something, don't stress over it. Go and do something else in the meantime, clear out your head. Game jams are a long sprint, the best thing you can do is not rush.

Can't come up with ideas? Do something completely unrelated, inspiration comes from weird places you'd never expect.

FAQ

Q: How do I submit my game?

A: Create a new game on itch.io: https://itch.io/game/new and follow the instructions there. Or you could also upload it to a cloud storage service.

Q: What if we are working in a team?

A: The project lead is the one responsible for uploading the game. They should also specify the contributors in the submissions description.

Q: How do I include my source code?

Q: Where can I upload my game (if not using itch.io to host it)?

A: You can use any cloud storage service, most of which offer free tiers. Some of those are: Google Drive, Dropbox, Mega, One Drive...

If you have any more questions feel free to ask in our Discord Server in the #gamejam_2018 channel (or ping @JamMaintainer).
