This jam is now over. It ran from 2020-03-20 00:00:00 to 2020-04-30 23:00:00. View 27 entries

DEADLINE: 00:00 GMT, 01/05/2020

Notice: Submissions must be TTRPGs or Bitsy/IF/narrative games. Anything else will be removed from the jam. To avoid wasting time, please do not submit games outside these categories.

This is a jam for tabletop roleplaying games (TTRPGs) and Bitsy/IF/narrative games on the theme of 'house' or 'home' (or both)! They could be about staying home, being in your home or a house, doing things you'd normally do at home, or anything else like that.

This isn't super strict – you could make a game where 'home' is part of a frame story or meta-story – but submissions should not be about going home  or leaving home unless most of the game is about being at home. That might sound restrictive, but there's a lot you can do: for example, house by Marn S is a horror game about a sinister house that may be trying to eat you; House & Home by Jason Brown is a bittersweet look at the changes wrought in a family by time, and by that family on their home; and Life On Mars by Heart of the Deernicorn is about astronauts struggling with isolation, expectation, and each other while they set up a colony on Mars.

This jam is open to previously-published works, playtest versions, and works-in-progress!

EXAMPLES
