Community choice: Fallen Cube by JUSTCAMH

Hey developers,

I really like metroidvania games (in particular the Metroid ones), but I feel that it is hard to find good metroidvania games. So I give you the challenge to make a metroidvania game in a limit of time of 1 month (middle August to middle September). Also celebrating MVM's first year anniversary!

Our cool Vania partners:

artsybarrels | Bored Pixels Jam

EvilArtBunny | Alchemist's Mountain


1. Assets should all be made during the jam period (except general purpose code, bases and low-poly models). You can use assets with a free licence or the ones you bought, you aren't obligated to do all.

2. Incomplete games are accepted, I would like to see them evolve if it's a project that you'll continue. So don't stress to make a complete game! But your submission should be playable.

3. Teaming is accepted.

4. The game needs to be safe for work (no gore, nudity, etc.).

5. I'm accepting late entries until 24 hours after the end of the submission period.

The jam doesn't have a theme in particular, as long as the game is a metroidvania-style game, is playable, and follows all of these rules, your submission will be accepted.

Games will  be rated on these criterias:

Scenario (story)



Music and sounds

Engagement (if I want to continue to play the game) and general

Note: Bugs won't be counted, but if a bug affects too widely one of the criteria (Ex: Gameplay, a bug causes you to not be able to get a key to continue in the game) then you'll get less points on that criteria. Also, I'm the only one judging. If a game requires a controller with more buttons or if there are many entries, I might choose another judge.

To celebrate the first anniversary, I got a prize for the winner of this jam! Thanks to our partner EvilArtBunny, I will be giving 30$ to the winner of the jam! If you're in a team, it will be splitted between the members. You must have a PayPal account so I can give you the money.

Hope to see you participate and I am impatient to see your games!

You can join the Discord server for questions and more things!

You can go on Crowdforge to make teams!
