Welcome to the Game Dev Bois's first Rhythm Jam. This jam focuses on making a game that has some aspect of rhythm.
The theme will be revealed once the jam starts.
The Winner of the Jam will get a SPECIAL ROLE on our Discord Server and big swag 😎
A rhythm game is a game that includes some aspects of rhythm. There are two main ways to use rhythm in games.
Player Rhythm is testing the players rhythm skills, this includes games such as Osu, Stepmania, Clone Hero, A Dance of Fire and Ice, etc.
Environmental Rhythm is the environment reacting to a songs rhythmic beat, this includes games such as Project Arrythmia, Just Shapes And Beats, No Straight Roads, Geometry Dash, etc
Yes! When it comes to assets you can use them as long as they follow these guidelines.
As for ideas, you are free to plan out your game before the jam starts.
The majority of your game should be made during the jam, premade assets are an exception to this and can be made before the jam starts.
You can start with these design lessons and tutorials to figure out what would make a fun rhythm game as well as how to implement it.
You can go to our discord server in #team-up to find music artists to work with. Or you can use already existing music by (Lightspeed6)
You have a week to create your game and submit it to the jam. After that there will be a rating period that will last another week.
There are 2 main places. You can ask on this server, on #🍯current-jam, or you can go to the community tab on itch and ask there! There will be plenty of people willing to help! Lots of people are new to game jams here, and if you are one of them, there are lots of experiences jammers who can answer any doubts or questions related to participating in game jams in general!
