This is a 1 week long game jam, where you're tasked with creating a game based on another IP. Once the jam starts you will also be given an additional theme.
The jam will be starting at 29th of May 12 PM PST, and ending exactly 7 days later, at 5th of June 12 PM PST. You will be given 1 extra hour to submit your games though.
Check out our main website: https://mfgg.net/
As well as our forums: https://forums.mfgg.net/
Our Discord server: https://discord.gg/RKnD226
Our Twitter account: https://twitter.com/OfficialMFGG
You can share your games on Twitter using the #MFGGJam hashtag if you want us to retweet your stuff.
It will be revealed when the jam starts.
Anyone. You're allowed to form teams, with a maximum of 5 people.
Nope! Any fangame based on any franchise is welcome. MFGG is a site that's mainly focused on Mario fangames, but we accept fangames from all franchises, so it would only be appropriate to do the same in this jam too.
That being said, your game has to be a fangame. No original indie games.
Either ones you've made yourself, or ones made by others and that are available to use. You can also use assets from commercial games, we are making fangames after all.
Just make sure to give proper credit.
Doesn't matter really, as long as your game is playable on a Windows system, you can use whichever engine of your choice. ROM hacks are unfortunately not allowed in this jam though, your game has to be standalone. Homebrew games are allowed, given that it's for a system that can be easily emulated on most Windows systems, so no Switch homebrews either.
No. You can't base your game off of existing code. You can follow tutorials, but the base for your game should start development after the theme gets announced.
Nintendo doesn't like it when fans remake their games, so it should be relatively original. A demake of Super Mario Odyssey is not okay, but a Super Mario Odyssey inspired fangame is.
Sure, if you can.
No, but it would be nice. :')
Again no, but it would be awesome.
No, your game should be in English.
Mainly on our Discord server, which can be found here.
Well, games submitted must not contain nudity, or hateful language or visuals, but that should be obvious.
