This is the first GameJam for the gaming festival Countryhack in Vårgårda Sweden! (Problems will ensue!!)



The GameJam will be held both on the internet and locally at Countryhack.

There will be a small price for the winner but only if the winner is at the local event!

# You're not required to submit the source code along with your entry,  but it is encouraged.

(its ok to come to Countryhack and work on your own project(s), just buy a ticket and tell the crew about it so we can plan for it! )


Not Allowed
# Board games or any "hardware games" such as pinball or similar!
# Games you have worked on previous to the jam.
# Pre-made art assets. Sprites, textures, sound effect, music, 3D-models and maps should all be created during the jam.
# Game-bases that are almost complete games already, such as most assets in the templates-category in the Unity store.
# You are not allowed to continue to develop/improve your game during the voting period! (Game breaking bugs are allowed to fix!)


Every submission needs to contain this
# If you are at the event or not!
# A list of the assets you use like game-library, game creation tool like Unity.
# A brief explanation of how you play the game including the controllers

ASSETS explained

If you use assets (Like code-frameworks and similar) not created by yourself you need to list these when you submit your game!

"Code-assets" and libraries are OK! So things like


  • Box2d/Box3d
  • Allegro
  • Pygame
  • LWJGL
  • and similar.
    are OK to use!

We do not want you to use pre made assets such as

  • Sprite maps
  • Music-packs 
  • sound effects
  • 3d-models
  • premade maps

But things like game-bases that are almost complete games such as most assets in the templates-category in the unity store  are not allowed because just putting new graphics in a game is not the same as creating one from scratch!
REF:  https://assetstore.unity.com/categories/templates
Pulling code-snippets from these assets are ok (If the asset license allows it!) but you need to tell about it in the game submission!
Its also ok to use these assets for research for your game! We know from experience that watching pros creating games is one of the best ways to learn!


If you have any ideas or comments please contact us at Countryhack and tell us!
