You will get an opportunity to judge other people’s submissions but this is more of a means for feedback rather than an actual competition.
Innovation – The unexpected. Things in a unique combination, or something so different it’s notable.
FUN – How much you enjoy playing a game. Did you look up at the clock, and found it was 5 hours later?
GRAPHICS – How good the game looks, or how effective the visual style is. Nice artwork, excellent generated or geometric graphics, charming programmer art, etc.
AUDIO– How good the game sounds, or how effective the sound design is. A catchy soundtrack, suitable sound effects gave the look, voiceovers, etc.
POLISH- How polished your game is.
PROGRESS- This is field is more so for fun but will still be added to the ranking. How much progress did you make on your game during this jam (add to the optional fields when submitting your game for a higher score in this field)
OVERALL– Your overall opinion of the game, in every aspect important to you.
- Jam Winner Role on Discord and r/SoloDevelopment.
- Pinned game on Reddit and Discord
You most likely have the right difficulty, if you, as the developer, can casually beat it without getting damaged.
Make your game easy to understand for new players. This is a super common trap a lot of game jam games fall into. Start thinking about your tutorial or how you want to teach your mechanics right from the beginning!
It's even more important in this jam since it's one of the ranking factors. Quality over quantity. Keep your game super simple!
Every bit of extra polish can really make your game stand out. Make sure your game is simple but also polished. Take risk. Try something completely new and crazy.
