Q&A

Can I use premade assets, scripts, or ideas?

Yes! When it comes to assets you can use them as long as they follow these guidelines.

  • The asset is general purpose. (Things like character controllers )
  • You have the rights to use them.
  • Write which assets were made before the jam in your description.
  • Credit any assets you don't own in the description.

As for ideas, you are free to plan out your game before the jam starts.

Can I submit my old game or start working on my game before the jam starts?

The majority of your game should be made during the jam, premade assets are an exception to this and can be made before the jam starts. If you're still unsure what would be allowed to be made before the jam, please ask the hosts in our Discord.

How much time do we have?

You have a week to create your game and submit it to the jam. After that there will be a rating period that will last another week.

Where can I ask more questions about the jam?

There are 2 main places. You can ask on this server, on #🍯current-jam, or you can go to the Community Tab on itch and ask there! There will be plenty of people willing to help! Lots of people are new to game jams here, and if you are one of them, there are lots of experienced jammers who can answer any doubts or questions related to participating in game jams in general!
