Let's do it Again! The "Only One of Any Asset" (O2A2) visual novel jam returns (the original O2A2 jam can be found here).

It's simple, you have one week to make a visual novel and you can use at most:

  • one sprite / one character / one pose (multiple expressions without change in pose are okay)
  • one background / one place / one time of day
  • one illustration (in place of the one sprite and one background)
  • one thousand words
  • one music track or one ambient background noise 
  • one sound effect
  • one voice actor
  • one piece of menu background art
  • one project (submit only one entry where you are the creative lead/director. You may participate in other teams as a different role)

There are no restrictions on:

  • themes / genres (e.g. romance, horror, comedy)
  • suggestive or violent content (so long as such content is tagged appropriately on the game page)
  • using Creative Commons, similarly licensed free-to-use, or paid assets
  • usage of solid color backgrounds
  • programming, scripting
  • special effects / movement / zoom / animation (such as blinking, lipflap/mouth movement, sparkles, moving side to side, etc. Frame-by-frame animations that would change a significant portion of an image are not allowed.)
  • custom GUI assets like buttons, text boxes, textures and other elements
  • price point of completed entries

Use this freedom in the spirit of a simple jam. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is not allowed:

  • submitting partial works e.g. demo, Part 1 of x, etc... Self-contained prologues are okay.
  • submitting unfinished works or placeholder pages for future uploads
  • submitting entries that promote bigotry and hateful conduct, or are otherwise made in bad faith
  • using non-GUI assets (sprite, BG, audio, etc.) from a larger project of yours

Entries that disregard the rules will be removed from the jam.

Don't stress, focus on having fun, and keep in mind the aim of the jam is to create something small, self-contained, and finished.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What can you do even before the jam starts:

The jam follows the "standard" jam protocol. You can make notes, jot down ideas, make a sketch or two, browse and select already existing / Creative Commons assets, think about names, look for team members. All the mental efforts, working out the logic of your story, calculating time needed and other "preparations for your journey" are fine. Finalized assets or writing that appear in the actual game as a direct result of a team member's effort should not be done before the start.

See our FAQ in the Community Boards for more in-depth interpretation of the above rules, including edge cases and previously established limits.

Join the DevTalk discord for direct support, sharing, and talking to other participants in the "current events" section. You can also use the Community section of this jam page.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Past event: On July 3rd, 11AM PST/2PM EST/7PM BST many participants have joined the DevTalk discord for a Meet 'n Greet event  (art by Cider.) Thank you everyone who took part!
