This jam is now over. It ran from 2017-12-23 06:00:00 to 2018-01-02 06:00:00. View results

Most games have some really dope pixel art but that isn't always necessary for you to make a great game. The goal of this jam is to focus more on game mechanics than art.

Requirements:

  • 100% of the game must be made within the allowed time period.
  • No nsfw
  • If you can have an html version of your game that would be great :)
  • Have fun and don't worry to much about ratings

Art requirements

  • All the colors throughout the whole game combined shouldn't be more than 10. Each color with it's own "color code"  is considered a separate color.
  • Each sprite should not contain more than 2 colors
  • Each background should not contain more than 2 colors
  • Each texture should not contain more than 2 colors
  • Special effects with particles and stuff should not contain more than 2 colors at most
  • You can use transparency to some extent
  • Sprites can overlap
  • Music and sound effects should be minimalistic
  • In general all the art in the game shouldn't be to detailed
  • No pixel noise because it isn't minimalistic
  • Gradients are allowed but no more than 3 textures/sprites/backgrounds in total with a gradient and the two main colors from the gradient count towards the 10 color max.



Other Info:

If coding isn't your strong side and you haven't found a team, please don't worry. It's fine to submit art, game concept art, an art pack, a music track/s, music sound effects, .etc. (Hint: when submitting you can upload multiple items under one submission.)
