A small guide on how to rate others' entries. Suggestions for improvements welcome.
1 star: not engaging at all, tedious and boring to play.
5 stars: extremely engaging, not bored for an instant.
Creative use of art assets:
1 star: bad use, makes things confusing or unappealing to look at (unless that's intended for the game's engagement and it works well)
2 stars: some of 1, some of 3
3 stars: generic use of assets, nothing bad, nothing special
4 stars: enhancing assets; nice color combinations, aesthetic scene compositions, maybe a few interesting custom assets made by combining things together
5 stars: makes you say "wow that's really clever I never would have thought to do that"
1 star: lots of bugs, obfuscated controls, difficulty spikes all over, no sfx or music (if the game would have benefited from them).
5 stars: feels like something you would pay money for.

This Jam is based off my (Miziziziz) video series Four Game Developers Jam Off the Same Art Kit:
The rules are the same:
The jam starts Friday August 14th 8pm MST and ends Sunday August 23rd 8pm MST (hopefully this is enough for people who work full-time jobs to comfortably do 48 hours of work on their games, let me know). This is followed by a one week rating period where everyone plays and rates each other's games based on 3 categories:
The best games will be featured in a video on my Youtube channel. I recommend making a devlog video for your game as well and linking it on your entry. If it's well made I'll comment on that and give a shout out and link to it in the video.
Also please include a link to your game's source code as well! Sharing source code in jams is a really great resource for other developers, especially new ones.
If you have any questions shoot me a tweet here: https://twitter.com/miziziziz
Also join my discord to talk about it: https://discord.gg/y96XYdd
Anything you make during the jam is your property; I don't claim any rights or ownership of your games.
Anything you submit to this game jam may end up in a Youtube video without your express permission.
