SORRY: the M-a-L May Jam is postponed (I'll do another Make-A-Level jam soon, my schedule for May got really crazy so I had to postpone it! But it will return I promise!!!)


WELCOME  TO  THE JUNE (SUB) GENRE JAM

This is a fun little "weekend to weekend" jam to emphasize a specific subgenre (reavealed at the start of the jam) What is a subgenre you ask? No, it's not a genre that is based on submarines (Well, I suppose it could be?! Kinda cool, actually) In short it is usually an off-shoot of a larger [usually] more well-known genre, that while still has the overall themes and similarities of the main genre also has new and or expanded upon themes and specific details that are not necessarily portrayed in the original "main" genre and unique to the subgenre (I hope that makes sense! Somebody help me make that more concise! Pls!!) In this jam we will be creating a game in the specified sub genre (revealed at the beginning of the jam, just like the theme normally would be!) So jump in, it's just for fun and maybe there will be some prizes too!

THE SUB GENRE (a.k.a. THEME) WILL BE REVEALED AT THE START OF THE JAM ;)



The rules are simple: use any game development engine of your choice but it must be in the specified SUB GENRE (revealed at the beginning of the jam!) Work solo or in a team, standard jam rules apply (you must start when the jam begins, make sure you own the rights to assets or have appropriate rights of usage) Just a casual jam (although ratings are for fun) it's mostly just to showcase and expand upon sub genres that deserve more love and appreciation! :)


  • SUB-GENRE (THEME) - How well does your game implement/interpret the (sub) genre? Is it groundbreaking or just faking?
  • VISUALS - Graphics, atmosphere, overall look and aesthetic of the game
  • AUDIO - Sound effects, music, all audible aspects of the game (essentially the visuals for your ears! lol)
  • CONTROLS/PLAYABILITY - How well does your game play? Is it smooth like silky milk or is it extra chunky?? :0
  • OVERALL POLISH - Although, for any game jam this is to be taken lightly but it's always nice to see a game that is well-crafted
  • FUN FACTOR - Because if it isn't fun... why bother?! ;)


Thanks   for   checking   out   this   jam   and   hope   ya   decide   to   join :)
