This ScoreSpace game-jam will run from 12PM Friday October 25th until 12PM on Monday the 28th (PST)
The theme will be announced at the start of the jam :D
ScoreSpace x Polycade is an event that combines high-score games from ScoreJam with Polycade's new age arcade machines.
The jam starts with the game developers. Their job is to create a game for a Polycade machine within a 72 hour period. Once the time is up, there is a three day judging period in which the games are judged by the jam participants. The top three games are then played by the people who attend the Polycade event live in LA.
Polycade is a wall mounted arcade that plays modern and classic games. The goal for the Polycade players is to get a highscore in one of the top three games from the jam. Once the timer runs out the player who achieves the highest score in each game wins. Winners will receive a limited edition ScoreSpace x Polycade shirt.
All games must include a leaderboard system (offline or online) so that the players can compete for the highscore if you happen to win the contest.
You can make the game on your own or in a team of up to 4 people. You can find other people to team up with on our Discord.
All game engines (and frameworks) are allowed!
Games that are NSFW should have a warning in the description or when the game first loads up.
You and your team should make everything from scratch during the event. If you use any pre-made assets you must list them in the description of the game.
All games submitted must follow Polycade's requirements (see below)
- Windows 10
- Games must fullscreen (1920 x 1080)
- Controls must be compatible with the panel, which is recognized by their PC as two Xbox controllers and one mouse: https://polycade.com/apps/help-center#!hc-what-do-all-the-buttons-do
