This jam is now over. It ran from 2021-04-15 21:00:00 to 2021-05-31 21:00:00. View 15 entries

Welcome to the Mock Cover Jam! Very glad to have you here. This is a game for analogue games (tabletop, larp) created based on a cover mockup made by someone else. Perhaps a bit reminiscent of high school group projects of yore, full of lack of communication and needing to take little material in a creative direction,you take what you're presented with and run with it!

There are two ways to participate in this jam! They are:

  • Make a cover mockup, including a title and a cover design
  • Make a game based off a cover someone else made

I'm an aspiring graphic designer myself, so I've prepared a selection of 20 cover mockups to be used in this jam. You can find them here! You are free to use any of these for your game's cover, or any other submitted to this jam. Consider leaving a donation or recommending me to a friend if you like my work!

You're encouraged to share this jam around by using the #mockcoverjam tag! You have until the end of May to get your submissions in! To help avoid duplication, consider letting people know in this discussion thread about which cover you're interested in using.

JAM GUIDELINES
For Games:

  • Your game must be analogue (tabletop, larp)
  • Your game must utilise a cover submitted to this jam
  • Give credit in your text to the cover's author and any extra credit required (fonts, stock images, art, etc.)
