Pixel Horror is a special genre that continues to grow not only since the release of games such as Ib and The Witch's House, but also with games like Soundless Mountain and Lone Survivor, Imscared, and Deep Sleep. Thanks to these, many new interesting games with exciting premises have been cropping up.

Plenty of people have a neat idea to add to the growing list of in-development games but never have made a game, so why not take this opportunity to create one?

In the Pixel Horror Game Jam, your objective is to...

  • Create a horror game with a story in any engine
  • Use pixel aesthetics to convey it
  • Simple as that!

So... Why do a game jam?

  1. You can get that idea nagging you out of the way.
  2. You can learn how to use a certain engine.
  3. You learn about time management.
  4. It helps you build a portfolio.
  5. You might make some new friends if you decide to build a team!
  6. It's fun!
