This jam is now over. It ran from 2023-08-21 07:00:00 to 2023-09-25 06:59:59. View 32 entries

Are you someone who's excited that it's barely halfway through August, but we're already seeing the creepy and witchy goodies gracing the shelves at our local art supply stores? Does the idea of pumpkin spice everything make you tingly? Are you impatiently awaiting the setup of the local corn maze? Well, do I have a game jam for you! 

Do you have a horror game you've been working on, but haven't quite finished? Or maybe a cozy, witchy game that uses a tarot card mechanic? Maybe something with ghosts or a haunted house for a group of friends?  You're in luck! This is the place for all your autumn-themed, Halloween-based, orange-tinted TTRPGs! While we're happy to have games that have been previously published, we'd love to see new games and first time game designers join us, so be sure to tell your friends. 

The game jam will run from August 21st through September 24th, at which time we will setup a bundle for folks to submit to for the month of October, should they wish to join. That bundle will launch on October 1st, and will only be available for games submitted to this jam. 


  • Your game must, in some way, be related to autumn, Halloween, witchy, or horror themes.
  • Your game must be a tabletop roleplaying game, either solo or multiplayer. This can include play-by-post games, a hack or SRD-based game, a module, a supplement to an existing game, etc. 
  • Your game must include warnings if any content could be considered "adult" or "sensitive" in nature. This includes themes with gore, body horror, triggering phobias, or themes of an emotional nature. 
  • Games with bigotry or promotion of hatred towards marginalized groups are not permitted and will be removed immediately (E.g. sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism). 
  • Games that include "AI-generated" or "machine learning generated" art are not permitted and will be removed immediately. 

While not requirements for submission, it is strongly recommended that each game come with a text file version of for accessibility. We also strongly encourage pricing your work: In this house, we pay our artists and designers. 

Please use the hashtag #CodeOrangeJam wherever you shout about your projects - If you have questions (or just want to chat about your game, or TTRPGs in general) you can find me here on, Twitter, or BlueSky @EMGiosia. We have also setup a community page for this jam here on, so if you'd like to discuss submissions or workshop a project, please use it! We're all here to help and support one another.
