A neon soaked, blast from the past, 80's inspired retro game jam! This jam is one week long and is centered around 80's aesthetic and culture.

Theme:

The theme is based around 80's aesthetics, get creative with it! If your unsure what constitutes an,  "80's" theme, then here are a few examples to get you inspired! 


Rules:

  • Be civil and act respectful towards others
  • Keep the games PG-13ish (violence and gore are allowed, sex and nudity are not)
  • Teams are allowed (try to keep it to 3-4 members max, managing a large team during a game jam can become a nightmare!)
  • Only use assets and code you have the right to use
  • Planning and mockups are allowed before the jam but all code and assets must be made during the jam 
  • All game engines are allowed 
  • Have fun!


Voting:

Although this is a competition, make sure to have fun above all else! Getting feedback from a broad range of people is a great way to learn and improve in the future. Voting will take place after the jam has ended and will run for one week. Here are the voting categories:

  • Fun
  • Visuals
  • Music
  • Story
  • Theme


Teams:

Create or find a team to on crowdforge!
