Rewriting a game thats already being worked on?

I've been working on a game since the beginning of October in Godot 3.0, but I wouldn't mind rewriting it in Godot 2.1 or another engine just to include it in a jam. I haven't gotten very far along in development, and 3.0 keeps corrupting the scene files, but I'd like to reuse most of the assets (just a character model) and possibly some code. Is this allowed? Would it be fine to just keep working on this project as is and submit it? It really isn't much, it only has player movement, and parts of a weapons system implemented.

Hi there - thanks for asking! As much I'd love to be able to say yes, I don't think that would be in the spirit of the jam.


Would I be disqualified if I used the character model I've already made? If there's anything I'm not comfortable with remaking it's that.


That's prooobably fine. But the point of game jams is an exercise in creativity within a time limit. So like Lee said, it's more in the spirit of the Jam to make everything from scratch. That's not to say you can't expand  and re-add assets later after the jam!
