From Sonic, Crash Bandicoot, Sparkster, Spyro, Pikachu and even Bubsy, some video game developers need a mascot and there are many to choose from. In this jam your task is to make a video game featuring an animal (or even alien) character that would serve as the mascot for the game itself, it can be cute or cool with an attitude.
The game can be of any genre, and of any size. You could make a 2D side scrolling platformer, a 3D on-rail space shooter, a fighting game or even an RPG. Just as long as your main character is the mascot, then it's all good.
You're free to work on your own or with a team.
The Jam goes on from the 10th - 20th November, giving all participants up to 10 days to develop their games and make them look and sound as best as they can while not putting them under serious pressure (except for the last day of course). When the 10 days of development are over, voting will take place to find the best gameplay, best design and the best character.
