This jam is now over. It ran from 2016-05-27 23:00:00 to 2016-06-03 23:00:00. View 4 entries
With some projects you learn too much and would need to start again if you wanted to be happy with the finished product, others you just inexplicably loose motivation, and some you just don't find appealing anymore. All in all you probably look at these projects with guilt and a bit of sadness. Yes you learned from them, but also you put in so much work, and nobody will ever see it. It's really unfortunate, especially if you've shown it to a few people or posted wip screenshots online.
Well why not just release it? The files aren't doing anything or helping anyone on your hard drive, and I'm sure there are loads of people who would enjoy what you've already got. You never know, maybe some comments will inspire you to pick up the project again, or maybe just give you a bit of a smile. Hey if you don't know why you dropped a project you might even get some feedback that helps you pinpoint an issue.
How To Enter
To enter gather up all your unfinished work into one or multiple zipped file(s). Then create a new itch.io game page and upload the file(s). Design your page in whatever way you like it and then submit it to the jam.
What To Enter
Although itch.io is focused mainly on games, it would be great to see some unfinished comics, artwork, music, and anything else that can be uploaded! It's a digital dumpster, so get rid of all the work you think you'll never finish!
What Can I do to Make my Work Palatable To People
Don't attempt to add anything majorly new, we want to see the raw unfinished mess!
However if you want to make your work more presentable, the following is a list of suggested improvements.
Include a text file in your work, or if it is an executable file like a game, it could be a screen before the menu. Just to make sure people remember that it is unfinished. You could also add a few paragraphs on what you had planned for the project, and tell them about what is already in it, so they know what to look out for.
Learned how to better improve the quality of your audio, increase your framerate, or any other useful tips since abandoning your project? Well why not do a little tweaking. Just remember not to add anything in.
This one is more oriented towards games. Menu screens are often left out in development, however feel free to add one to your unfinished game(s) to aid the player.
