Welcome to the No Video Jam, an audio game jam featuring accessible games without graphics!

 

Rules

  • Anyone can participate, whether you're solo or in a team.
  • Submissions must be an audio game or enjoyable with a screen reader.
  • In other words, submissions must be eligible for the blind-friendly tag.
  • Submissions can have graphics or an interface as long as the above criteria is met.
  • Submissions should be mostly made during the jam period.
  • Please only use audio assets that you are legally permitted to use.
  • Submissions must not contain discriminatory or hateful content.

 

Themes

All genres are welcome. Optional themes will be revealed below when the jam starts. Feel free to use one, many, or none at all!

 

Judging

Submissions will be judged by the public based on the following criteria: 

  • Accessibility. Is it easy to operate and perceive?
  • Fun. Is it enjoyable?
  • Originality. Has it been done before?
  • Sound. Is the sound design well executed?

Voting lasts for one week after submissions close.

 

Tips

Is this your first game jam? Here are some helpful tips for success:

  • Know your tools. You'll have more time to build your game when you're familiar with how they work.
  • Reduce your scope. Try to build a short playable game as early as possible, then spend the rest of the jam polishing it.
  • Take care of yourself. Don't forget to eat, sleep, and take plenty of breaks.
  • Perfect is the enemy of progress. You can update your game with new features or content after voting ends.
