Can I use premade assets, scripts, or ideas?

Yes! When it comes to assets you can use them as long as they follow these guidelines.

  1. The asset is general purpose. (Things like character controllers)
  2. You have the rights to use them.
  3. Write which assets were made before the jam in your description.
  4. Credit any assets you don't own in the description.

As for ideas, you are free to plan out your game before the jam starts.

Can I submit my old game or start working on my game before the jam starts?
