This jam is now over. It ran from 2020-04-17 07:00:00 to 2020-05-19 07:00:00. View 30 entries

Due to the global pandemic occurring currently postal services are having a tough time as there simply is not enough mail to send.  So, here's where us indie game designers can step up and help out!  I envision us making as many games as possible which require the players to send something through the postal service.   For example, give them a framework for creating characters and have them send mail back and forth to another player. I used the USPS symbol as I am based in the United States and creating this game jam was prompted by the current administration refusing to bail out the USPS, but creators in all countries are welcome as I'm sure this impact is felt everywhere.

Rules

1.  No games with homophobia, racism, ableism, transphobia or any form of hate.

2.  At some point your game requires the player(s) to send someone something in the mail.

3.  The game material sent through the mail must be safe and allowed to be sent through the mail.
