Mini jam is a 72 hour long, game development jam for independent game developers that occurs every two weeks.

Mini Jam involves a required condition that is announced as soon as it starts to spice things up. Remember, limitation breeds creativity.

You get the theme early so you can plan ahead, Just keep the limitation in mind. This jam's theme is ISLANDS. Remember, theme is purely inspirational and not required. Feel free to interpret it however you want.


The limitation is a special condition that your game must follow, but is open to interpretation. If your game does not follow the limitation, it may be removed.

The limitation is: your game can only have 1 level

You could look at this as your game can’t be level based, or your game must be in one room, it’s really up to you. If you are unsure what might be considered a level, just think of what might typically have a transition or a loading sequence in a game. Note that this doesn’t include menus. Please keep in mind that the limitation is open to interpretation.

If you would like a notifications when the Limitation is announced, Join the Mini Jam Discord server.
