WELCOME!

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 ANCIENT EGYPT. Remember, theme is purely inspirational and not required. Feel free to interpret it however you want.

LIMITATION!

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: The game must be themed around two conflicting ideas

Your game must incorporate two ideas that heavily contrast each other. For example: turn based gameplay and real time gameplay (Think crypt of the necrodancer). You aren't limited only to game genres, this can also be applied to graphics and audio as well. Note that this is different than the theme of "conflict", you are instead taking two conflicting ideas and combining them.

If you would like notifications when the Limitation is announced, join the Mini Jam Discord server.  Discord  -  Twitter

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.
