Hope you all have been having a blast playing, voting, and commenting on all these great games. I know I have. It's pretty inspiring to see such a large group of people share so many good ideas and feedback.
That said, I've notice an issue, and maybe some of you have as well. Because of the nature of the game jam's theme, lots of games seem to pull from old ideas and take inspiration from their favorite classics. I think that's awesome, and has been such a fun nostalgia trip for me. Some people, however, are just stealing games entirely and presenting them as their own work. I would wager that's against a whole bunch of rules, and not just for the game jam itself.
How should we approach this issue? To be more specific, I found the entry below to be a wholesale plagiarism of a game made in 2015, called Heroine Dusk.
I assume they should be flagged for removal and taken out of the game jam, but maybe that's something for the moderator to decide.
Thanks again, everyone, and happy gaming!
