The theme for our inaugural Profectus Creation Jam is "Break the Cycle*! 🔄🚫

"Break the Cycle" might spark ideas about disrupting the common flow in loop-style incremental games or bringing a fresh twist to game progression. But don't stop there! This theme is a call to innovate, whether within familiar frameworks or unexplored territories.

In addition to the main theme, participants are encouraged to showcase a custom feature or demonstrate an innovative use of the new formulas system.
