Welcome to Once Upon a Blue Monday: A Sad Game Jam! It’s so good to see you here! 

This is a simple jam that lasts all of January. 

The rules are simple: 

  1. Don’t be a jerk*.
  2. Write a sad game. 

That’s it. That’s the whole thing. You’re going to do great, I just know it!

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

*This means no bigotry, racism, sexism, ablism,  or anything of the like should be present in any form, whether in your game or in any comment or post you make.
