Common questions about the jam. Expect this area to change over time!
Q. Why so much time?!
A. Um...well...this is my first jam, and in my head I was thinking more time means more polish! My next jam will be for 2 weeks, instead of a month and a half. Hopefully the extended timeframe of this first jam won't be a detriment. And I'm learning for next time!
Q. Are you really going to stream all the entries?
A. If there are five or less, yep! If there are more than five, it will be the top five with the highest raitings as voted on by the community. I plan on streaming for 8-10 hours on the 31st, so I will do my best to play each to completion on stream. After I've played all the eligible entries, the winners will be announced live.
Q. When will the birthday stream begin?
A. The birthday stream will start at
Q. Will the judging be live as well?
A. Sadly, no. The judges and I will have already of played the games in full and decided which will be the winners before the stream. This is because I may not be able to play the full length of the games on stream due to time constraints. Also, the judges have to play them before as simply watching me play may not enable them to judge the game fairly.
Q. Why are the prize funds in Canadian?
A. I'm from Canada. Also, the prizes themselves were generously donated by my close friend. So if you see someone named Lord Savok in your travels, give him a high five and a thanks ;)
Q. Can I win by default?
A. Yes and no. If no one else enters and your entry is the ONLY one (Or the only two) then you will be guaranteed a prize. However, if you simply enter a game that doesn't rate very well according to theme and fun factor, you may not get the grand prize by default. So make sure it's a good, quality game!
