The premise for this month-long game jam lies in the presupposition that Art is an expression, primarily, of the Vision of the Unconscious Mind.

Competition results will not impact your publication, though the announcement of these results may provide more exposure for some games in place of others.
All work ought to abide by international copyright laws. Submissions by both teams and solo developers are welcome. Rights for original media are to be decided by team members amongst themselves. Moderators for this event cannot be held responsible for legal disputes.
Dream on, Developers!!
