EXTRA CREDIT CHALLENGES:
If this is your first Extra Credits game jam, we strongly encourage you to read through the entire FAQ located at this page--we know what questions come up most frequently, and we already answered them for your convenience! We've covered everything from "how the heck do I start making a game if I've never made one before?" to "my dog ate my code, can I get a late submit link?" to "how do games get picked for the game jam episodes on YouTube?" Here are the most useful rules to know:
A note about this being a "ranked" jam
We have a "judging" period that lasts until June 22--the purpose of this is to lock submissions from further edits after the jam ends. There is no actual formal judging or ranking. That said, Extra Credits invites every jam participant to play at least 1 game submitted to the jam that is not their own, and leave a feedback comment on their page! Constructive compliments and criticism help make this particular jam community as awesome as it is.
Remember you aren't competing against other jammers; you are competing against yourself. If you make and finish a game, you win! The prize is some additional self-esteem and confidence. If you don't finish the game, that's okay too! The prize is the creative thrill of trying something new and learning from others. Maybe you can get BOTH prizes!
