The Dogpit Jam is a chill competition in which you make a game based on the theme (announced April 20th) and submit it before midnight on April 30th. A record of entries will be recorded on Awful Jams!
The theme is "Workshop!" Good luck!
Joining a team
Participants are strongly encouraged to team up with other entrants! Find people who complement your strengths! Looking for teammates? Come say hi in the Dogpit Discord! We also encourage you to say hi in the discord regardless and meet other chill gamedevs, artists, game audio people, voice actors, and other neat folks!
Categories and Judging
Judges will be Xibanya, SnowSchu, SharpenedSpoon, and FloppyAdult. Each judge will have a block of entries to play and will nominate games from their block for consideration in the categories. All judges will play all nominees and then come to a consensus on the winners. Judging brackets to be announced after close of submissions.
