  • Don't be a jerk.
  • You may only make your game within the time frame (although updates are allowed after the game has been submitted).
  • Keep game content family friendly (no nsfw content, no excessive gore/violence, no offensive content).
  • Make sure that all assets used you either own or have permission to use (don't use copyrighted material).
  • Make sure that you follow the limitations given.
  • Any irrelevant games to the limitations will be removed.
  • Read the rules.
  • Have fun


The limitations determine what you can, can't, and or are required to do with your game in this game jam. 

The limitation is...

Your game must contain a frog.

It means what you think it means. Go nuts
