The Constraints Jam
Date: October 1 - November 10th
Location: The Beautiful Internet.
What is this jam about ?
It's about using constraints as a design tool. It's about fueling creativity through a set of constraints and see the result when you embrace limitations.
Okay, how does this work ?
1. Pick 3 or more constraints of your choice from the list.
2. Make fantastic games on the platform of your choice.
3. Submit on or before 28th October.
How much time do I get ?
Staying true to the honor code, we request people to not spend more than 48 hours on their entry. Yes, we understand that it's a month long jam but that's only cause we want more people to be able to participate in it without worrying about the fate of their existing project deadlines/work/obligations/life (we all hate life).
How does voting work ?
Voting is open for everyone. Participators, contributors and the public can vote on entries.
Is there a prize ?
Yes, based on popular vote and peer reviews there will be a prize distributed to the winning entry which will be a personal license for Construct 2, Game Maker or a year worth of cloud storage facility. It's entirely up to the developer to choose what they want. We're still working on getting more prizes to giveaway for the runner-ups and hope to announce them soon. We hope that the biggest takeaway from this Jam would be the learning experience.
Who owns the IP rights to my game ?
You. We don't take anything from you, you get to keep and hopefully work on an even finer product for commercial release. For us, that's the best takeaway possible. Cheers !
Can I submit more than one entry ?
Yes and you're a fantastic human being for following the "make more games" program.
Can I suggest a constraint ?
Don't forget to share your progress via #ConstraintsJam and spread the word !
