Welcome to Mini Jam 21st Edition, STORIES!

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 STORIES. 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 of Mini Jam 21, as voted on by the public, are...

The player is not the hero.

This means that the player must not be the hero of your game. You are the bad guy, or a supporting character, not the  hero of the story. Simple right? 

It is highly recommended that you join the official Mini Jam Discord server.

You can form a team, Show off your projects, Get reminders, and hanging out with a friendly community that likes making games.
