How is it fair to compete graphics-wise when ppl are allowed to use free graphical assets from https://opengameart.org/?
Just wondering. Don't wanna cause a scene
Good point Nahid Games (and I've definitely thought of it) I've actually [surprisingly] hosted a cash prize jam before and amazingly it's not really an issue, at least it wasn't last time. I think the itch community is just above that kind of stuff- which is why it's so awesome here. But, you're right- I might have to bring in some official judges or something along those lines, just in case. I'll keep you posted and thanks for mentioning it!
I suggest you get some official judges.
I did participate in your last jam with money prizes (the Mashup Jam). It was actually the first jam I participated in on itch.io. It was very fun but everyone felt that first place was undeserved. The winning game ranked third with 3/5 on Audio category although it had no sound or music.
Anyway, looking forward to this one as well.
Hey Sl1ngShot- glad to have you back! After considering I'm actually currently looking into getting some judges lined up (now that this jam is 250+ participants) That last jam was a bit of an interesting outcome- definitely a learning experience for me... and I think you're right about getting some "official eyes" on this jam, just to make sure. I also decided this time around to have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes; to spread the winnings around a little more. I'll have a bunch more info on this May 1st. Anyway, thanks for being patient and I appreciate you giving it another shot! ;)
