Welcome to CoMo Game Jam VI!

Thank you for participating in our 6th CoMo Game Jam, presented by the CoMo Game Dev Association! Here you can find instructions on how to jam, schedule of events, rules for judging, and much more. After the theme is announced we will be updating the page and open up for submissions through Noon on Sunday.

Theme: Morality

Check In

When you arrive, check in at the entrance to the event space, COMO Game Dev staff will give you a lanyard and a name tag. Keep your name tag and lanyard on you at all times while at the event space: it is your ticket in and out of the space and allows you to eat the provided meals free of charge. The color of your name tag will also identify you as an adult or minor for security purposes.

  • All work must be done on premise
    • Extenuating circumstances may be allowed on a case by case basis, e.g. 3D printers should not be transported, VR setup is mounted to walls, etc.
  • Game must be turned in by NOON ON SUNDAY
  • Late entries will not be accepted
  • Video Games must be playable submitted through itch, so make your itch page and upload early

  • Don’t be a ****
    • Everyone here is wanting to have a good time and make something awesome. Being antagonistic or going out of your way to ruin someone’s time won’t be tolerated. Being competitive is fine; being an a-hole isn’t.
