Aesthetics - How well does the game utilise it's visual style and how appealing is it
Sound - How well does the music and sound contribute to the game
Overall - Your over all impression of the game as a whole
Can I use Game Engines And Tools? Yes! Game engines and tools such as Shader Forge for Unity are perfectly fine and encouraged
Do I have to create the art? The art must be created by the individual or team entering into the game jam. Downloading assets and using them for your game will not be accepted for the game jam
Do I have to create the music? Music must be generated by the individual or team entering into the jam. Lots of online software will allow you to make music even if you have no experience
Do I have to incorporate the theme? Technically you don't but you'll get a low rating in the theme category
What is the theme? The theme will be announced on the 1st of August
Will all team members receive the prize? The prizes given in the game jams are of high value. For this reason one key will be given to the team or individual who wins. If the partner supporting our jam has multiple keys available 2nd and 3rd place will also receive a prize.
What platform can I develop for? Windows/Mac/Linux are supported, I personally will be judging games using a windows 10 machine. Web games are also supported.
How big can a team be? You can make a team of any size, an individual can enter or a team can enter. I suggest only working with a maximum of three people as it can be hard to manage bigger teams in game jam events.
How can I get in mini spotlight videos? The best way to get into a spotlight video is to share a short 20 second clip of your game in the community page on the how off your work thread. By making it a focused 20 second clip I won't be required to edit the footage allowing me to easily make the spotlight videos.
