Now with that fresh 2020 smell!
That's right, the Not A Game Jam Game Jam is back in 2020! We're angrier, we're gayer, and we're still not making games, apparently:
From the 2019 jam's page, here are some "rules" for this jam:
This Is The Not A Game Jam Game Jam. Make "games" which are literally impossible to play. Make games with no interaction. Make games without mechanics. Make games that are meant to be read, where play is a secondary concern. Make a list of everything that makes a Game a Game and then make a game that has none of those things. Make a game that Isn’t. (The "Me" that exists in 2020 would like to add on to this to say "Piss someone off about it.")
Analog and Digital "games" are welcome in this jam as well as any other types of "games".
There’s so much importance placed on how a game plays, to where we playtest ourselves into burnout. Make a game that’s finished when you hit the last “.” Make something that you finish & walk away, never looking back.
While this game has an “official” run time, please know that we will literally always take “late” submissions. This is also Not A Game Jam, so like, who cares about the deadline, don’t stress about it.
We encourage you to charge for your Not-Games. We have the opportunity to set a standard and if you’d like to follow it, you can set the minimum price for your entry as $5 and the suggested price as $10. With that said, we also encourage you to include consideration for those in financial hardship by either including a plaintext copy of your game available for free, offering community copies of your game, or any other consideration.
Here are some optional rules for the 2020 run of the Not A Game Jam Game Jam:
