Create a Game in 3 Weeks!
Anyone with a computer, an idea and an internet connection, is invited to create a game over the course of 21 days! The Winners will receive great prizes by the end of the year!
The Icehouse is an online community of passionate indie creators who try to help each other. For some of us, making games (and more) is our primary job and we try, very hard, to do it for a living. For others it’s a genuine passion and we do it at home during our free time, but we all like to play and create adventure games of all kinds. More than anything else, we like Creation and Art in general! Whether you love old-school, point & click adventures, pixel games, modern and realistic 3D environments, stylized worlds or new gameplay ideas (etc.), we want you to create a game into which you put all your heart and creative passion, whatever that means for you!
IcehouseJam will begin on November 27th at 00:00 GMT, and end 21 days later on December 18th at 00:00 GMT. A public voting process will follow immediately after the jam concludes, and will last until December 24th 00:00 GMT. Then a committee of 4 Judges will deliberate and choose 3 winners.
“As amateur or experienced developers, we have all been inspired by games that have shaped us, nourished us and made us want to do what we do today. Celebrate one of those old games by creating something new and original, but that strongly evokes what you once enjoyed so much. Will you succeed in making better than the original game?”
Please note that by "an old game" we mean a game that is at least 10 years old. It is not limited to the adventure genre. Also you are asked to Credit the title of the original game in your creation, particularly if you are using copyrighted material.
Storytellers, treasure hunters, library rats… GET READY for The Icehouse Jam!

As we have said before, for us the most important aspect is Creativity, so we want the Jam’s rules to remain as simple as possible.
The Judging committee will be composed of the following talented creators:
On December 18th, the public/open votes will begin. The results of the public votes will be very important as we will pick up the 10 games with the highest ranked: they will be submitted to the Judges.
The judges (see above) will then choose their 3 favorite games from amongst the top 10. The creators of the 3 selected games will be declared winners.
The results of the vote will remain secret. Then they will be announced on the web-page of the Jam around mid-January, and the prizes will be sent to you as soon as possible in 2022.
Once the jam has ended, everyone is encouraged (not just participants) to play and rate as many entries as possible.
Note: We (The Icehouse) do not wish to place any undue/unreasonable level of pressure on any team or developer, or (under any circumstances) for them to devote "too much time and effort" into what they submit.
The public/open vote will end on December 24th 00:00 GMT, at which time the judging phase will begin (see above).
