This jam is now over. It ran from 2023-02-01 00:00:00 to 2023-03-01 00:00:00. View results

Title screens are fantastic, they're usually the first part of a game you see, and often give you an idea of what you're in for. When it comes to game jams though, there's usually two types of people - those that never get past the title screen, and those that completely neglect it.

So for this casual jam, it was decided to focus on this important part of the game: The Title Screen. Make something exciting and interesting to look at, maybe show off a few visual effects, add a nice jingle, etc.

You can, if you wish, add an actual game to your title screen, but it's entirely optional.

We've enabled public voting as a means to encourage feedback to the developers, as there are no prizes (aside from your own satisfaction!). We'll review if this is useful or not for future jams

Come join us on Discord, IRC, or the Forum if you'd like to chat with other participants and share your progress!

How do I make a GBA game?

Can I work in a team?
Sure!

Can I enter something I was already working on?

Do I have to publish my source code?

But it's not even winter!
You can still enter, even if you live outside the northern hemisphere! ^^
