About Finally Finish Something Jam

Anyone who has been trying to make games for even a few months will have a project like this - a game you just can't seem to get over the finish line. Maybe you're stuck on that one stubborn programming issue? It could be you've got 75% of the idea but can't bring it all together? Have you practically finished a game and you're waiting for a reason to share it? Perhaps you go back to this project every 6 months, realise how much better you could make it and start again from scratch? Possibly you are a new to game dev, and you need a reason to finish that very first game?

Whatever the reason, the Finally Finish Something jam is here to help you. The jam will run throughout January 2017, giving the whole first month of the New Year to get this thing done. Get your year off to a great start, tick something big off your to do list and make a great game! Use the hashtag #FFSjam on Twitter to share your progress.

Rules
This jam is all about giving you a reason to finish those stubborn projects, so the rules are very relaxed:

  • Submit any type of game by the end of January 2017, just get that game finished.
  • In fact, your project doesn't even need to be a game. Tools, screensavers and printable board games are all welcome
  • Use any tools you want, there are no restrictions and nothing stopping you
  • It doesn't matter how much work you've already put into the project, use this as the motivation for that final push
  • Work alone or in teams, get help from whoever you need, get it done
  • Use any assets that you're legally allowed to use, there are plenty of resources out there if you're struggling for graphics or music (we'll try and put up a list of free resources on the community page to help)

There may be many different games with different levels of effort, skill and resources – but we've decided to have a rating phase anyway. After finally getting your game finished it will be nice to hear what people think.

Questions!

If you have any questions feel free to ask on the community tab of the game jam, we'll do our best to answer them. Some example questions might be:

  • Q: Did you decide to run this game jam just as an excuse to finish all your old games?
    • A: Yes absolutely
  • Q: Can I really submit a game that I've been working on for a year?
    • A: Yes, we're looking forward to playing it
  • Q: Are there any legitimate reasons why I shouldn't enter this game jam?
    • A: None whatsoever
