Welcome to the wonderland of quantum computer games!
In this jam, you will create games that can be run on quantum computers using Qiskit, an open source quantum software development kit. There is only one additional restriction: your games must run on a quantum computer (see "Rules" below for more details).

"Stuck in a Loop"
Qiskit is a Python library. You can make games with Qiskit using any Python game engines (Pygame, Python Arcade, etc.).
If your favourite game engine doesn't support Python (which is extremely likely!), you can follow this workaround: run Qiskit on a Flask server, either locally or remotely, and send command from your favourite game engines to the Flask server via HTTPS request.
The best way to learn how to code is to read the source codes. We picked a few examples of quantum games for you to take a look at:
Also here's a very simple guide for making quantum games on Jupyter Notebooks if you're interested to take a look.
You can find more details about Qiskit game development on the Qiskit for GameDev repo and about MicroQiskit with PewPew game development on this repo. You can find more quantum games on Awesome Quantum Game repo. When in doubt, ask on either of the community channels mentioned above!
*We have some tools ready for Unity for this jam. There's a MicroQiskit for Unity and also Python and Unity implementations of some procedural generation tools.
