It's the most wonderful time: Ham Jam time! As you might remember, the previous theme was Fable.

Welcome to Ham Jam 4!

  • The theme this time is: Experiment.
  • How you choose to approach the theme is entirely up to you. Make a game about experiments? Make a game that IS an experiment? Whatever!
  • The jam will go for 1 week (see countdown above).
  • Feel free to start planning before the Jam starts, but please don't actually start creating until then. This is an honour system, I won't exactly be checking.
  • This is not a contest, just a chance to make and play some fun games.
  • Game length and quality is unimportant.
  • Any interactive experience is allowed, don't shy away from a Twine piece (for example) just because you think it's "not gamey enough".
  • You are welcome to submit non-games, such as pieces of writing or art/audio assets if you wish.
  • Work individually or as part of a team.
  • I highly encourage you to make a new game to submit rather than submitting an existing project, but I won't turn away any submissions. Unless they're super-offensive or something.
  • Beginners encouraged!

Rather than cluttering up the Jam description, here's a link to a bunch of resources to use, including some aimed at beginners. I've added some new audio resources since the last jam too.

If you're not sure how to begin or you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me here or on Twitter (I'm @ZombieHam).

Good luck!
