Welcome the DRY Jam ! #dryjam

The DRY Jam is a competition in which you will not have to write a complete game, but only one of its mechanics.

DRY stands for Don't Repeat Yourself.

The perks of making the best mechanics is that you could even take it and use it inside any project you want. It's plug and play.
This is the main principle of modularization, or in other words, not repeating yourself.

Session's theme is ROPE


  • Jam: 4th October - 11th October (one week)
  • Voting: 11th October - 25th Novemeber (two weeks)


  • Armaldio: 

Creator of the Discord server "Construct Community" and instigator of this jam. I started by the creation of small projects on Construct 2, but today I develop javascript plugins. I intend to get into the development of Construct 3 to benefit the community

  • Saiyadjin:

Master gamer since 6 yr old, an experienced c# developer with love for game development. Using C2 since 2012, working on some games, experimenting with unexplored territory like isometry. Games released: . Also perfectionist that will dissect your code before any judgment.

  • Skymen:

I've made games for 5 years and I've been using Construct 2 for the past 3 years. I didn't make that many fully fledged games but rather lots of small systems, editors and tools. I decided to start making plugins and behaviors with the same idea in mind: Make small useful stuff that you can't do (easily) using events.

You can chat with them on the official discord server.



  • A translation plugin
  • Notification plugin

After the submission period is over, voting will begin. All participants can rate other entries in the following categories on a scale from 1 to 5 stars! Please leave feedback on each template you rate; it's more helpful than just a number!

Here are the 4 topics that will be rated: 

  • The features: the overall impression about how well made is the mechanic 
  • The design: the presentation / art of the mechanic
  • The code: is the code optimized, modularized, plug and play ?
  • The contextualization: does the environnment have an impact on the mechanic ?


  • Anyone, regardless of experience, is welcome to participate!
  • You must start from scratch. No external plugins are allowed (unless explicitly specified). 
  • Give proper credits to the artists if you don't make your own art.
