The SU Indies are hosting Salisbury University's flagship Game Jam for the second year in a row! From 6:00PM on Friday, March 1 to 6:00PM on Sunday, March 3, student participants will have those 48 hours to make either a board game or a video game from start to finish either by themselves or as part of a team. The game will be required to fit a certain theme which will be announced when the jam begins!
If you would like to work as part of a team but do not have a team to work with, we will try to provide one for you. Be sure you fill out the Google Form Linked above!
The Curb-Cut Effect
Ever notice how the sidewalk smoothly transitions to a ramp at street corners? That’s a curb-cut. They were originally designed to benefit people in wheelchairs, but, they actually help everyone. Cyclists, skateboarders, delivery people pushing carts, families pushing strollers, and many others benefit from Curb-Cuts. When we design for the benefit of the few, we often find that we have designed at the benefit of the many.
Make a game that’s designed with a possible barrier to enjoyment in mind.
To fit the theme, your game must fit AT LEAST ONE of the following descriptions:
Note: Your game may be playable without fitting any of these descriptions, but it must also be playable and enjoyable while fitting at least one of these descriptions. I.E. If you make a game that is completely playable and enjoyable without sounds, you can include a toggle to turn sounds on if you would like. If you make a game that is playable and enjoyable without distinction of color, you may include colors in your game, so long as they are not required to be able to play and enjoy the game.
Submissions will be judged based on five categories, each worth 20% of a total score.
