This is a local jam for the Make Games South Africa community that missed Virtual Pet Jam.

Judging is done by submitters and contributors. The categories are:

  • Best Pet in Show - It's fuzzy, it's adorable, it has... Waaaaaay too many tentacles. This award is given to the game with the most striking and original pet!
  • Most Fun to Play - Oh just 5 more minutes and then I'm done. Right? This award is given to the game that you just can't put down because it's so much fun!
  • Widest Range of Emotions - Smiles, tears, stitches, and so many feels! We're all built to feel, and this award is for the game that makes you feel the most!

  • Teams are welcome!
