Following the success of last year's jam I am happy to invite you to Dungeon Crawler Jam 2022!
Dungeon Crawler Jam 2022 is a game development challenge to make a first person grid based dungeon crawler game in just 7 days.
In this context a dungeon crawler is a grid based RPG viewed in first person and with 90 degree turning. Examples of classic dungeon crawlers are Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder, Lands of Lore and Bard's Tale etc.
For more examples check out the submissions in last year's jam.
Game specific rules:
It is recommended to be prepared and have a rough design idea of your project before starting. It's a daunting task to make a game in just a week so plan well and keep scope narrow. It's infinitely better to submit a visually simple but feature complete game which you can play from start to end than a single level "demo" with eyecandy graphics and many absent or unfinished gameplay mechanics.
If you want to team up with someone let it be known in the discussion board. There might already be someone there to team up with.
Join the dungeoncrawlers.org Discord for live discussion, brainstorming and recommendations for engines, tools, assets etc. to use when developing a dungeon crawler.
Use #dcjam2022 to share progress or tweet about your game :)
Winners will be determined by a combination of vote count, ratings, and judge's assessment, based on the criteria listed below.
The prize for winning entry is fame and glory but also $100 USD worth of games of your choice from on itch.io or gog.com. Teams will have to share the prize money among the members. 1st place gets a special role in the Discord server. Everyone who submitted a game will get a "gamejammer" role in the Discord server. All submitted games that adhere to the rules will be added to the dungeoncrawlers.org database.

I've received an anonymous donation to the rewards pool for the winner of this jam. A huge thanks to Mr. Anonymous :)
Have fun, be creative and try to think outside the box :)
