Details

You will have two weeks to work on this jam, starting from Sunday 11 April 17:00 UTC and ending on 25 April 16:00 UTC.

When you are submitting your entry, you will be asked which rule you chose to abide to.

Game jams are about exploring your ideas, gaining experience, and just having some fun, so please don’t feel stressed about making a perfect, flawless game with no bugs whatsoever or focus on that one sprite animation that just does not look right. So please remember to have fun!
