THEME:
INSPIRATION!!!  Make a game inspired by something...it could be your favorite movie, tv show, conspiracy theory, twitch personality...anything. Make a game inspired by something else. (I'll be streaming my entry all weekend on both YouTube and Twitch) at 8pm EST on Friday 4/6/2017.

RULES:
- All assets must be created from scratch for this jam EXCEPT any publicly available (free or open source) assets or code (like Kenny's or stuff on OpenGameArt or stuff on the asset store)
- Games cannot be submitted from prior game jams
- Teams are fine, no size limit...but disclose this and be judged accordingly
- All game engines are ok, no limit on that (if its a custom engine TECHNICALLY it counts as premade assets...but nobody is looking. Go for it.)

SUBMISSION:
Monday 4/9 at 12:01 am EST the jam ends! Submit your game on time.

ADDITIONAL:
I've prepared some assets that you can use in your games if you want. Here is a splash screen as well as another one. I also have a transparent background logo and a weird pic of me because why not. Feel free to use any of these assets in the beginning of your game or anywhere you see fit!
