The game needs to be based on Emoji's or not?

Hi, I was just reading the GDD and was slightly confused. I get that the GDD is in emojis. Should our game also contains emoji's in it.

Hi! The GDD is meant to be taken as ambiguously as you like. Whether or not you put actual emojis in your game is up to you!

The GDD is pretty ambiguous and doesn't really make much sense to me. Like the title has to include something about sunsets and waves but the key features need to include a ball dancer and a burger, what?   🤔

The GDD is primarily suggestions and silliness. It's designed to inspire your game, but doesn't have to be used word-for-word (or emoji-for-emoji, as it were).

I've shown it to a bunch of people and got swamped with ideas. People have so many different interpretations, it's awesome. Love it.

So glad you get it and are on board! The openness is what makes inspired us to make this jam in the first place.
