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 HELL. 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.
Limitation: Cards must be a mechanic
Any type of card goes, note that your game doesn't need to be based around the usage of cards. There just needs to be a card related mechanic in game, and they don't have to be used for their intended purpose (e.g. throwing cards).
Q: Can I use the idea card suits and not the physical card specifically?
Q: Can I use some obscure type of card you have never heard of before?
Q: Do business cards count?
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.
Any games that do not follow these rules may be removed from the jam.
