This jam is now over. It ran from 2020-06-18 07:00:00 to 2020-07-20 07:00:00. View 26 entries
Hexes are found often in old school exploratory RPGs, usually as a way of emulating overland travel across large distances between important landmarks in a system called a Hex Crawl. For whatever reason, they are much less common in indie rpgs and story games. This jam wants to challenge that.
After the recent itch megabundle, my friends and I started playing with the wonderful hex-map making app HexKit from Cone of Negative Energy's Cecil Howe. In all likelihood, you got that awesome bundle too and you have the app now whether you knew it or not. Combining that with the awesome artsy and abstract tile set from Nate Treme (also in the bundle), I was inspired to make my own hand-painted and illustrated set of tiles: the World Champ Hex Pack. (There are tons of other packs on DriveThruRPG and Itch as well.)
Now, I want to see what people can do with them.
This is not a ranked jam, meaning there is no voting or competitive aspect. You're encouraged to use the Community tab at the top of this page to ask questions, brainstorm together, and otherwise team up on your hex-based idea.
There was some internal discussion before making this thing public about making a bundle of games and hex packs when the jam is over to raise money for marginalized people, that still might happen. I'll send out an alert towards the end to gauge participation interest.
This jam was quickly thrown together by Adam Vass of World Champ Game Co with encouragement from The Brain Trust Discord. You can find me on twitter at @WCGameCo and making monthly RPGs on patreon.com/worldchampgameco.
