Welcome to the FAtiMA’s game jam. This game jam is about creating games using the FAtiMA Toolkit.
FAtiMA Toolkit is the emotion engine for your AI characters.
FAtiMA Toolkit is a free collection of tools/assets designed for the creation of characters with social and emotional intelligence. Using it will allow you to create interesting, believable and engaging characters that appraise events and make decisions on their own.

We want to see what games you can make using this tool.
Note: Unfinished works* are allowed/encouraged, and completing the work isn't a requirement either - demos are perfectly fine.
