Welcome to the Godot Wild Jam which starts the second weekend of every month.
Whether you're a person who likes to go wild, a casual game dev, Godot fan, or you just stumbled upon the engine recently and would like to have a go at it, then this is the event for you.
Interested in using the Godot Wild Jam logo in your game as a splash screen? Go to this Google Drive and download: Godot Wild Jam Logo.
Members of the Discord channel will be able to submit theme ideas to our #theme-vote channel. The channel will be unlocked for two days.
The top 5 themes from #theme-vote will be put into a Google Form and linked on both this jam page and the Discord channel. Anyone will be able to vote. The form will be shared shortly after #theme-vote is closed and close on the morning the jam begins.
Wildcards are an optional limitation to add a unique challenge in addition to the theme. Pick one or pick all. It's up to you. Wildcards are revealed the same time as the theme, and there are always only 3. Ignoring wildcards completely will not incur a deduction in judging.
Please include the wildcard that you used in your splash screen, main menu, in-game, or credits screen to let us know which one you used. We recommend placing it on the splash/main menu screen or scaling the graphic down and placing it in a visible but unobtrusive way. All wildcard images will be available in the google drive.
DISCLAIMER: We encourage participants to build from the master branch to continue stress testing the engine. We understand this is not for everyone but believe that the usage would be invaluable to making Godot even better! If you find a bug, please report it by opening an issue on the GitHub repository.
This is to the Godot Documentation for Exporting Your Project. Otherwise, we won't be able to download and play your game!! The docs are your friend. <3
Members of the community and public will be judging games on the following:
> Theme: How well does the game adhere to the chosen theme?
> Fun: Was it fun? Enjoyable?
> Controls: How smooth is the game? Are the controls clunky or intuitive?
> Graphics: Does the game look good? Does the art style fit the type of game? Is the pixel art charming?
> Audio: How is the music? Does it fit? What about the sound effects?
> Originality: Were you pleasantly surprised by some game mechanic or design in the game?
