Welcome to the Annual Atari Lynx Game Jam! Atari Gamer, in conjunction with Yastuna Games and Argon are bringing the 2021 edition of this jam to a Lynx near you!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make an Atari Lynx game within the next 23 days, to have fun and put a smile on players' faces. This is an unranked jam and we encourage collaboration and showing off your skills, but above all to have fun making a new game.
This year's theme is "Let's make something scary". So dig up your bodies, pull out the skeletons from the closet, unleash the monsters, spill some (pixelated) blood and maybe have a witch or two fly by. Let's make it the best scary game jam so far!
There are some rules still, it is a contest after all!
We're not restricting you to any genres and you can make a port of a game from another system (or a homage to one), as long as the above rules are satisfied.
All submitted games will be put on a physical 'multi-cart', which will be released within 3 months of the end of the game jam. Every participant who submits a valid entry will be sent a free copy of this cart.
So lets get started and bring some new games to the Lynx!
Once the game jam starts, there will be a link at the top of this page to submit your entry. Please be sure to include the following in your entry:
We've created a discussion forum thread on AtariAge so you can talk about this game jam, ask any questions, and post preview screenshots of your game. The thread can be found here - https://atariage.com/forums/topic/326950-2021-atari-gamer-game-jam-coming-up/
