What is Kentucky Fried Pixels?
Kentucky Fried Pixels is a month-long series of events designed to empower and nurture local game creators and provide them the tools necessary to successfully complete a game from initial concept to polish, marketing, release, and beyond.
This will be the fourth year Louisville Makes Games is running Kentucky Fried Pixels, a jam and bundle of games made almost exclusively in Kentucky! Throughout the month of August, local game creators are tasked with making games in a month. This results, in a lot of cases, in some really polished games! This isn't a competition and everyone is welcome! Come follow our development from August 2nd to September 1st, or join along yourself!
How is this jam different from others?
Along with consisting almost entirely of homegrown, Kentucky games, the other thing that makes this jam unique is that this jam is split into two main development periods:
Shortly after the jam is over, the eligible games will be invited to join the Kentucky Fried Pixels bundle on September 20th for Pay What You Want! 100% of the proceeds of Kentucky Fried Pixels will be split among the development teams evenly. From there, it will be up to the individual teams to distribute the money to each team member.
LMG reserves the right to deny games access to the bundle if they break any of the above rules.
August 2nd to August 4th - 48 hour game jam
August 2nd to September 1st - One month long development jam
September 1st - End of KFP, submission deadline, presentations
September 20th - Trolley hop/KFP release!
