This jam is now over. It ran from 2021-05-30 07:00:00 to 2021-06-14 06:59:59. View 24 entries

It's the May(-ish, but mostly June) Bitsy jam!  This is the 50th (!!!) monthly #bitsyjam - to participate just create a game (of any size) using Bitsy with the theme of "overdue library books". 

Theme

The theme is "overdue library books"! As always, the theme can be the core of your game, or just a small reference. The point is to have fun and make something! :)

So tell me more about "Bitsy"

Bitsy is a little editor for little worlds or games. You can use it to make a game in your browser just by drawing it! If you're new to Bitsy and don't know where to start I recommend reading Claire Morley's Bitsy tutorial. If you want to see games people have made with Bitsy, there's a big list of the games here on itch.io. There is also a discord channel with lots of helpful people where you can get inspiration and ask questions!

FAQ

  • Q: What if I'm not done by the deadline? A: That's fine! If you have a WIP game that you still want to be part of the jam, it's ok to submit it even if it isn't complete. :) You can come back later and finish it (or not!).
