This year's theme is Phony Island, in homage to Fantastic Arcade's new home — Alamo Drafthouse's boardwalk carnival-esque bar, the Barrel O Fun. The jam will be open to developers from around the world to submit their best 2-player microgames in the style of almost-but-just-this-side-of-not-copyright-infringing carnival games.

Just like past years, we'll feed all these creations into our custom game launcher and then watch on November 19th as two contestants go head-to-head playing your games at Fantastic Arcade.


  • Your game must be a head-to-head simultaneous two-player game. Your game must run on Windows (sorry!) and use WASD + SPACE for player one and ARROW-KEYS + ENTER for player two as input in order to be considered for inclusion in the Phony Island "cabinet." 
  • It must have a short duration, 30 seconds or less, resulting in a WIN or LOSE for each player. (We'll be keeping score offstage.). 
  • After the match is over the game must QUIT AUTOMATICALLY. 
  • Your jam must reference this year's secret ingredient, announced on as the jam begins on Monday, October 30th.
