PLOT: it's the actual storyline of the piece. It's what you get if you strip away everything but what happens.
CHARACTERS: character writing is the aspect of game writing that fleshes out the characters and focuses on their lives and their struggles.
LORE: everything that makes the world feel vibrant and alive. It's the stuff that makes it feel like the world you're playing in existed long before your characters got there, and that it exists outisde of whatever your character is doing.
If you want to know more about this three pillars go check out this awesome extra credits video (we actually got some info for the descriptions from there <3).
A week or so before the jam starts we'll be opening the #theme-vote channel so you guys can submit your theme ideas. After that we'll be closing the channel and decide between the admins what theme to actually choose.
THE TOMATO INCIDENT: nobody likes to talk about it, it happened long ago: "the tomato incident".
They're as the name indicates: optional themes. You can use them if you want but you don’t have to. Not having them won’t affect the score of your game. These optional themes are revealed at the same time as the theme.
CATS: cats are cute, why not feature a cat in your game?
BREAK THE RULES: make a game that is meant to be played by breaking the rules.
MORE THAN ONE: make a game with more than one playable character.

What game engines are allowed? All of them, there’s no limitation on that regard.
Can I work in more than one game? Yep! Don’t overwork yourself tho.
Can I submit my game to other jam as well? Yep, as long as the other jam is ok with it and the game fits both themes.
Semi professionnals or professionnals are allowed? There's no limitation in that regard.
If I don't like the theme can I make my game with one of the optional themes? No, you have to follow the main theme. The optional themes can't replace the main one.
