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.

Shockingly not pizza, but $10 directly sent to the winner via paypal.
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.
MAGICAL REALISM: so there's this thing that keeps happening, it's normal: like hearts coming out of a loved one because they can't keep it all inside, or starting to rain outside when you cry. Like I said, normal, but to you player it might not be.
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.
PIZZA LOVER: people like pizza right? Do you like pizza? If you do, you might want to use this optional theme as an opportunity to place your favorite pizza into your game with an excuse. Hm, I'm getting this deja vu feeling...
MEMORIES: feature in your game a recolection of past events in some sort of way.
LYING ON A BED OF STARS: make your game in a space setting!! space is a pretty and scary place.
Can I edit my game after the submission time is due? The files are going to be locked but you can change your page design and content.
Can I submit after the submission time is due? No, so try to manage your time well.
What game engines are allowed? All of them, there’s no limitation on that regard.
Can I make a ttrpg or board game? Yep! all game engines are allowed ;)
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.
