Welcome to Paint Jam 2018!

Paint Jam is a game jam based off the high tech, revolutionary, graphics editor that comes pre-installed 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.


Theme

The theme for Paint Jam 2018 is...

Wilderness Trail!


Rules

  • 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!

Challenges

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