This is a jam for 2-player tabletop roleplaying games, though interactive fiction, bitsy games, and similar digital games are also welcome as long as they're designed for two!

Two-player games sit in a niche between more introspective solo games and often-busier 3+-player games. They can make great use of formality and symmetry or asymmetry, and allow people to create more intimate or intense experiences by cutting down to the fewest players necessary.

This jam is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on 2-player games, so bring out your old ones or design them new, or both!

EXAMPLES

You can find many 2-player ttrpgs using the '2-player' (or 'two-player') tag in the Physical Games category here on itch, including:

RULES

  • The primary experience of your game should be 2-player - don't just shoehorn a 2-player mode into a complete game!
  • Any state of work is fair to submit - previously-published, freshly-designed, works-in-progress, playtest versions, etc.
  • Games in any language are fine to submit.
  • You can submit any number of games as long as they fit the other requirements.
  • License and price your games as you see fit!
  • Include content notices or other precautions on both the game's page and in its file(s) if your game includes any material that could be considered adult or sensitive.
  • Bigoted content of any kind is not allowed and will be removed from the jam.
  • Please upload your game with the tag '2-player' and feel free to tweet with the tag #just2jam!

ACCESSIBILITY

Here are some easy ways of boosting your game's accessibility:

  • Plain text (e.g. .txt) versions for text-to-speech apps (you can check how it sounds using free online apps like the free version of Natural Reader, to make sure it reads well)
  • Community copies and/or opt-in discounts (see this Twitter thread for a tutorial)
  • Print-friendly versions
