The goal of this game jam is to welcome all levels of interest in game development and the next best start-up community on itch.io. One full of positive, like-minded individuals of all walks of life who work to make each other better within a comfortable environment. This jam will not focus on winning, but rather helping each other to improve our skills; a game jam where we can work together to help participants go from Level 1 to Level 99.
We all start as a beginner in any new skill but always improving, gaining experience. We are here together as one! This game jam is for a new and old community and to help you, the participant, create a brand for yourself!
Let’s start a new day!
A day 1 for all the underdogs, a new start and fresh beginning in these strange times we are currently living in.
As participants, your goal is most importantly to practice, learn new skills, and have fun. Secondly, it is to create a full game (as close as you can within the timeline) around the set theme while being original and creative. All you need is an itch.io account to be able to participate and a willingness to gain new skills through learning and helping others.
If you feel that you do not want to follow the theme, or you wanna practice with less stress, join our practice jam:
Good luck. Let's see some fun games and don't forget to have fun learning and creating!!!!!!!!!!
Think of something about how will temperature be the key to your game. Good Luck!
1) Originality - Be original and creative with your entries. If you have to watch a tutorial that’s ok, but make it your own. I really do not want to see a bunch of Udemy or YouTube tutorial copy submissions. Be inspired by others, but don't steal! Credit your work properly.
2) Use Of Theme - Use the theme in a unique way within your game.
3) Fun - A game is supposed to be fun! Don’t just submit a completed game for the sake of simplicity, let’s make fun games! Visual novels and C.Y.O.A types MUST be fun too, and they’re usually a harder route!
4) Community Spirit - A game jam is nothing without the community. Being noticed by others in the community, taking feedback, giving good feedback.
