#FinishThatRemakeJam is a game jam where you finish a game you started or remade at another Jam this summer. This is a conceptual heir to #RemakeJam (meaning it's not endorsed by the Royal British Legion etc) so we especially welcome Returners (but Newcomers are welcome too) 

So you incompetently abandoned your game? But bad games ain't bad forever, and your game wasn't bad to start with. Yes, we are giving a second chance. Will there be prizes? Yes.

The Rules

  1. Your game must be in english
  2. Your game must have been entered into another jam prior to this (present sufficient evidence)
  3. You can remake your game but you are basically encouraged to polish your existing game as much as possible, adding features if appropriate and in short overcoming the whole "if I only had a bit more time" thing.
  4. Entries containing any form of hate-speech are not permitted, and will be removed (<= we copied this from #RemakeJam)
  5. Working on an entry prior to the start of the jam is permitted (<= and this one too)
  6. Share your progress to the #RemakeJam hashtag! You are also encouraged to use the itch.io devlog feature so everybody can appreciate how you improved your game.
  7. Your last submission/update MUST include a video of your game.

The Judges

There will be a panel of judges which may include a mix of nonsuch game bloggers, minor celebrities, industry pros, clueless gamers and the like. The reason we're thinking of having a qualified panel of judges is to make sure that the games get One Hard Look which justifies awarding the awesome prizes.

But we're not telling you what the prizes will be (although we have starting funds to award prizes, we welcome SPONSORSHIPS for said prizes)

Criteria

[Provisional] three criteria are defined to judge the games:

  • Polish indicates how well finished a game is (games appearing to match "polished turd" will not qualify)
  • Core Value relates to how good the game is "at the core"
  • Appeal - "if you had $1 to put into funding a game, would it be one?"

A winner in each category will be selected, and a favorite (picked by the judges) will be the overall winner.

Diversifiers?

Although we do encourage you to keep your game as  accessible  as possible, make a PG rated version, submit to  App Stores, make a VR version of your 2D game, add game bosses and more generally get lost in the woods... This jam is about making your game awesome so we encourage you to stay focused, and there are officially no diversifiers.
