Welcome to Paint Jam 2018!

Paint Jam is a game jam based off the high tech, revolutionary, graphics editor that comes preinstalled on Windows whatever. This jam is for people who want an excuse to make a little game using only MS Paint as a graphics editing tool.


  • Don't be a jerk.
  • Use MS Paint. (Paint 3D is ok too!)
  • You can use other art tools to create transparency.
  • You can use source code and stuff you wrote before the jam, but don't use anything that would get you in legal trouble.
  • Do not infringe copyright laws.
  • Don't do something that will make me edit this rules section.
  • Have fun!


These are little optional things you can do to make your life a living hell.

  • Make all your own sound effects using only sounds you can make with your mouth. Onomatopoeia recommended.
  • Only use the default MS Paint color palette.
  • Make a 3D game only using flat images. No meshes except for like the world/levels.
  • Use only comic sans for any in-game font.
  • Draw your assets without a drawing tablet.
