The themes was generated at the start of the jam by taking random pairs of words submitted by participants. Theme words are submitted via private message to the bot Baby Boi in LiU Game Jam's Discord before start of the event.

Theme word rules:

  • Should only be one English word.
  • Should not be a game genre (ex. FPS, RTS).
  • Keep it safe for work.

Our theme process ensures unique and challenging themes each jam. The theme is there for inspiration during brainstorming and you can pick something else as well.
