Welcome to the first ever collab jam a jam not about making tons of art and sounds assets but combining what you and others create into your game. Basically you are only allowed to create up to 3 art and sound assets for a total of 6 assets you created. The rest must be obtained from other participants in the jam. This is not a challenge of if you can create a game in a week but a challenge of can you utilize others works into your project.
Q: What is an art asset?
A: An art asset is any file that represents objects in your game, this can be a sprite sheet for a character, a whole tile map for a world, a texture atlas, a 3d model the list go on.
Q: What is a sound asset?
A: Same as an art asset, some examples might be a track for the background music in the game, a damage effect sound, a click sound when you click a button and so on.
Q: How will we share assets?
A: I am planning on setting up a discord server in the coming week and we will use that. However if someone has a better suggestion this may change.
Q: Can we exchange coding assets such as scripts?
A: No, since scripts are arbitrary per environment participants use this is not an effective use of your 3 slots.
Q: If I am in a team of 3 people can we each create 3 art and sound assets?
A: Yes each person your team can create 3 art and sounds assets making for a total of 18 assets created by your team
Q: Do I have to use others assets?
A: No, but it is encouraged since this jam is about collaboration. If you can make a whole game with only 3 art and sound assets that is.
Q: Can I modify others assets?
A: No, but you can use the inspiration from what someone else made to create an asset yourself from scratch.
This is my first ever time hosting a game jam so if there are somethings you don't like I am more than willing to change the rules if enough people agree with you. I am looking forward to this, good luck everyone!
