Welcome to the 1st Retro Platform Jam! The objective of this jam is to make a game that runs in an emulator or on real hardware for any obsolete platform OR Fantasy Console. The idea is to build a game with unusual limitations. All participants and contributors will have the opportunity to vote after the submission period ends March 28th.
Games will be rated by participants and contributors in the following areas:
In addition to the Community section on the jam page, participants are encouraged to join the RetroDev Discord at https://discord.gg/Vy87aJjEDB
Games for the Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, 68k Macintosh, Apple II, Commodore 64, Amiga, Spectrum, PICO-8, Dreamcast, and more will be accepted. If you have a software-only platform such as a Fantasy Console you would like to build for and experiment with, feel free to submit!
Below are some tools and resources for developing games for retro and constrained platforms.
