WELCOME

Mini jam is a 72-hour-long video game development jam that occurs every two weeks on Itch.io.

A required limitation is announced as soon as the jam starts to spice things up. Remember, limitation breeds creativity. You get the theme early, so you can plan ahead, Just keep in mind that you may have to change your idea when the limitation is revealed. This jam's theme is Chrono. Not sure what this means? Try Wikipedia. Remember, theme is purely inspirational and not required. Feel free to interpret it however you want.

No worries if you can't finish your game on time, you can submit late at anytime during the jam's voting period.

LIMITATION

The limitation is a special condition that your game must follow, but is open to interpretation. If you are unsure if your idea doesn't fit the limitation,  just remember that everyone will interpret it differently.



Limitation: Only 3 Buttons 

This is straight forward. You may only have 3 methods of input in your game, those being 3 analogue or digital buttons. You're going to have to get creative here with mixing button timings and combinations to let your player navigate your game. Use of mouse movement is allowed, but it'd be a tad boring to just use mouse inputs.

Q: Can I let the player remap buttons?
A: For convenience and accessibility reasons, remapping buttons is allowed. 

Q: Can multiple buttons be mapped to the same input?
A: Yes. 

Q: Does a 4 directional D-pad count as 1 or 4 buttons?
A: It counts as 4.


RATING

At the end of the Jam, there will be a rating period that lasts 5 days. Your game will be rated on:

Enjoyment - How much you enjoyed your time with the game.        
Concept - How interesting or unique the main focus of the game was.           
Presentation - How well executed the main focus of the game was.           
Use of limitation - How well the game incorporated the given limitation.

Keep in mind that the theme is purely for inspiration, and you should not rate a game differently based on how well the theme was followed. 

RULES/FAQ

Rules:

Read the rules. Not reading the rules is not an excuse for breaking them.

Keep game content clean. Any and all NSFW content, potentially offensive content, graphic content etc. must be clearly telegraphed with a content warning at the start of the game as well as in it's description or cover.

Answer submission questions honestly. You will be prompted to answer a few questions when submitting your game. Please answer them to the best of your ability. Giving vague answers is a great way to set off red flags.

Any games that do not follow the rules will be removed from the jam without warning.

FAQ:

Can I submit more than one game?  Yes, but I would advise against it.

Can I submit a game I already made?  No. You may only submit projects made within the time frame. We do check.

Can I make changes during the rating period? Yes, just make sure that the original version of the jam can still be downloaded.

What engine can I use? You can use any engine or framework you like. You can even make your own if you want.

Is there a prize for the winners?  The prize is the friends we've made along the way.

Do I have to follow the theme? No, but well… When in Rome~

I have code and assets from other Jams I wish to use, are these allowed? Yes! If you have the rights to use it, anything that wasn't made specifically for this particular jam is allowed. Mini Jam isn't strict on the "build it from scratch" ruling, but it is encouraged.

How can you tell if I used premade assets or made the game at an earlier stage? Outside obvious red flags, we don't really check. Jams are for fun. Bend the rules if you want, just don't cheat yourself and be a jerk to mess with genuine folk.

Help! I couldn't submit on time, what do I do? There will be an announcement on the discord server, as well as a community post about how to submit late if you missed the deadline.

When does the next Mini Jam start, and when will the limitation be announced? Mini Jam takes place every 2 weeks on a Thursday/Friday, depending on your time zone. Mini-Jams last 72 hours (3 days). Limitations are announced at the start of the Jam.
