Hello everyone! This is the second 'Geta Game Jam' event, where you will have to make a game based on the theme of 'Signal Lost'. This game jam will start on Saturday, April 7th 2018. It will start at 11am aest and end on the Tuesday at 11am aest. For those of you who are familiar with Ludum Dare, this game jam begins at the same time as it does for that jam. After all submissions are in, voting will be open to the public and will go on for 1 week.
Geta (pronounced jee-ta) is an independent game studio consisting of members located all around the world. We aim to create games that offer memorable experiences which benefit people's lives. We are currently working on a large, unannounced project which is scheduled to be released mid 2019. If you are interested in joining us, then you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet us, or contact us through Discord.
1. You can work either alone or in a team. If working in a team, make sure that each person who contributes is credited.
2. All assets must be created within the time frame of the jam. If they weren't, then please mention so in your game's description.
3. Most games should be submitted by the end of the jam. We are allowing extensions if needed, however we will only allow it a certain amount of hours after.
4. Preparing for the game jam (game design documents, prototypes etc.) is completely fine, as long as you are not creating any assets that you will be using for the game.
5. Any game engine is allowed.
Voting will be open to the public, regardless of whether you have submitted or not. Voting will be done through these five categories:
Gameplay: Does the gameplay achieve its purpose? Are the game mechanics well designed?
Visuals: Do the visuals compliment the gameplay? Does the game look aesthetically pleasing?
Audio: How does the game sound?
Innovation: Is the game concept original and innovative?
Narrative: Does the game have an interesting story?
Overall: This is a measure of your overall opinion on the game.
