WELCOME!

Mini jam is a 72-hour-long video game development jam that occurs every two weeks on Itch.io.

A required limitation is announced as soon as the jam starts to spice things up. Remember, limitation breeds creativity. You get the theme early, so you can plan ahead, Just keep in mind that you may have to change your idea when the limitation is revealed. This jam's theme is KAIJU (?).  Remember, theme is purely inspirational and not required. Feel free to interpret it however you want.

No worries if you can't finish your game on time, you can submit late at anytime during the jam's voting period.

LIMITATION!

The limitation is a special condition that your game must follow, but is open to interpretation. If you are unsure if your idea doesn't fit the limitation  just remember that everyone will interpret it differently.

Limitation: Death isn't the end

This is a more subjective limitation and as such, you may interpret it however you like. Perhaps you keep a part of yourself with every death. Maybe even forgo death itself. The possibilities are endless! Just try something beyond respawning the player when they die.

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.

RULES!

Can I submit a game I already made? You may only make your game within the time frame, we do checkHowever, updates are allowed after the game has been submitted as long as the original build of the game can still be downloaded.
