Game Jam Rules:

  • You can use any engine. Your own custom built one (developed outside the jam) is totally fair game.
  • Your game specific programming should be done within the time frame of this jam.
  • Your game must be submitted to the official Itch.io game jam page before the end of the day April 19th (EST).
  • Your game must have a Linux build.
  • Your game's Itch page should have:
    • A brief summary of your mechanics.
    • Clear instructions on installation, dependency requirements, and how to run the game.
      • The judges are going to be trying (perhaps as many as) 50 games and we don’t have time to troubleshoot them all.
  • Your game can use assets that you created or assets that are freely licensed
    • That includes music, sound effects, fonts, all of it.
    • Freely licensed material must be given proper credit on your entry's page.
  • You’re allowed (and encouraged) to work in teams. Head over to the community section, the forum, or the Discord channel and look for people who want to team up.
  • Finally, you get one bonus point if your game is open source, and a SECOND bonus point if your game is developed with open source tools.

There is no prize, except the warm fuzzies you get from challenging yourself and having fun!
