the theme of this jam is Divination!

use divination, randomization, etc to make your game. rolling a die, i ching, tarot, anything that invokes fate! many ancient systems have been digitized, or you can look for randomness in the world around you...

if you submit a game, feel free to talk about the method you used 👍🏫

Examples
-use a random palette generator (like this)
-roll or simulate the rolling of a six-sided die. this is how many rooms to put in your game.
-the environment of this room is based on where your finger lands on a spinning globe or poking a map with your eyes shut

Questions you could ask the divination process

  1. what is the game's protagonist (if it has one)?
  2. what is this room's purpose?
  3. what is the player trying to accomplish or experience?
  4. how does it begin? how does it end?
