This is a game jam about the inevitable end.

Beginnings are exciting, but the end tells us what it was all for— what the journey meant. The end is where we finally understand and where we find peace and resolution.

The guidelines for design are as follows:

  • Create a game (tabletop, card, video, or other medium) about an inevitable end.
  • Your game must have an explicit end state. No "play until you feel you're done" or endless procedural generation. The ending should be a significant element of your game's design.

For an additional challenge, you may take on one or more of these optional restrictions:

  • Write a game where the game itself is destroyed by the player(s) as they play.
  • Write a game that has multiple explicit ending states.

Submissions will not be judged or ranked, though participants may opt in to submit their game for review and potential inclusion in a curated bundle following the jam's conclusion. Participants are encouraged to price their games so that they are compensated for their work, but doing so is not required. This jam and its creator stands for equity and thoughtful design, and games that promote bigotry of any form will be removed from the jam.
