Gift Jam is back, it's time to make games for those close to you

Make something small for a friend, your partner or a relative. Thank them for their help during a hard time or just for making life a little bit happier.

When we talk about success that usually means making a lot of money with our games, having a great hit that everybody loves, selling tons of copies and getting great reviews. Well, during this jam, success means making one person happy.

Many people craft amazing personal gifts, we make games, let's use that skills to craft a great present.


  • Make a game for one specific person.
  • Finish the game before December 25th.

RECOMMENDATIONS (these aren't rules, follow them or not) :

  • Make it personal!
  • Spend less than 12 hours working on the game.
  • If you're making it for somebody who doesn't usually play games, make it as accessible as possible.
  • It's ok to make a private game, just let me know if you joined the jam but didn't upload the game to itchio.
  • If you don't know where to start, take a look at Bitsy and Twine.
  • Share gifs on twitter using #GiftJam.

Thanks to @IsiAngeath for the jam art :-D
