The Historically Accurate game jam is a game development contest focussing around history. Over the course of a week, you have to make a game centred around a history-related theme. The goal of the jam is to inspire more developers to make games about history and, more importantly, have some fun! The jam is from the 27th of December - 3rd of January, so mark your calendars!
We also have a discord server, so feel free to join if you want to :)
We have a multiple-round voting system to decide on our theme. Firstly, everyone can suggest up to 3 themes. Then, after a few months, you can select all the themes you'd be okay with making a game around. The top 10 from this round are then selected and voted on - however, this time you can only pick one! After this round, the top 5 are chosen. From these, everyone votes on the top 3. A few weeks before the jam, I announce these top 3. From these, I'll randomly (though weighted towards the vote proportion) select the theme and announce it to you all when the jam starts!
At the end of the jam, everyone who participated gets to judge everyone else's games. Games can be judged on by the following categories:
Who can enter? Anyone. There's no skill floor - the jam is about having fun!
How much effort should I put in? There's no point overworking yourself, so do what you feel comfortable with!
What game engines am I allowed to use? All game engines are allowed!
