We provide the soundtrack, you make the game.

OST Jam is a non-competitive game jam with the goal to inspire new ways of approaching game development through music.  At the start of the jam, a collection of music will be shared (provided by up-and-coming and experienced musicians in the Two Hour Album Challenge community). All that remains is making a game inspired by the music!

The goal of this jam is to have a chill, safe environment for developers to try something new based off unlikely inspiration. When you listen to the music do you hear a dungeon theme? Or the backdrop to a text adventure in space? Or possibly a crazy abstract boss rush? Or maybe the background music to a tabletop game? It's up to you!
