Welcome to Mini Jam 17th Edition, HOME ALONE!

Yes, Home Alone as in the movie (Google it).

Mini jam is an open studio game jam for independent game developers. (That means you can use any game engine you want!) Be sure to join the Mini Jam Discord server as some important information will be announced there.

For general info check out Mini Jam's website here.

If you enjoyed a game you played from the jam, please give feedback!

This jam's theme is HOME ALONE. Feel free to interpret  the theme however you want.

  • 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. 


Adapt to a new limitation each day.

This means that a new limitation to follow will be provided every 24 hours. All limitations need to be respected. 

Day one's limitation is: No mouse input

This means that the mouse and track pad are off limits. No Scroll wheel, right click, left click, or any other mouse input.

Day two's limitation is: No combat

This means that you are not allowed to have combat in your game.

Day three's limitation is:There must be a star in your game

A lot of important information is posted on the Mini Jam Discord server, as well as a friendly community that loves making games!
