馃張ABOUT THE JAM馃張 

SCREAM ZONE jams are horror-themed game jams made to encourage devs to get their spook on! From straight-up scares to interactive fiction and roleplaying games, SCREAM ZONE jams encourage all creators to try making something spooky every few months, often based upon an optional theme or season.

ABOUT SUBMISSIONS

  • The theme for this SCREAM ZONE side jam is "SPORTS". What does that mean? How the hell do you make that scary? That's up to you!
  • Submissions for the jam should be ORIGINAL and developed primarily during the jam period, preferably for the jam itself.  However, using parts of existing assets/projects to make setting up easier is fine! Premade/bought assets are cool if you have permission to use 'em too! 
  • Scary and disturbing content is welcomed, but anything that could be particularly sensitive to players should be flagged in a submission description! to make sure the jam is a positive and inclusive experience for everybody, we reserve the right to request modification or removal of really nasty stuff :)   
  • Uploads will remain unlocked during the first two days of the voting period, and then immediately locked. Please make any post-launch bug fixes during this time. We will not allow you to update your game beyond this point so please do NOT add features in the voting

ABOUT VOTING

  • There are FIVE general voting categories: ENJOYMENT (BEST GAME)HORRORAESTHETICSSTORYSOUND DESIGN,  and a private HOST'S CHOICE category for those games that the hosts felt were especially creative, interesting, or otherwise noteworthy!
  • the voting is open to contributors only, but we reserve the right to take any submissions down that are clearly vote brigaded.

Q. HOW MUCH WORK CAN I DO BEFOREHAND?

A. Thinking about your game and doing very light planning beforehand is fine, however your game must be developed during the submission period. Keep your preparation light to keep things fair.

Q. DOES MY GAME HAVE TO BE A CERTAIN FORMAT?

A. Nope! We welcome games from any platform, using any engine, for any OS.  So you could write a story using twine, or submit rules for a traditional game if you're feeling up for it!

Q. DOES MY GAME HAVE TO BE A CERTAIN TYPE/THEME?

A. The jam has a loose focus on HORROR-themed submissions. How you interpret that is up to you, and we don't really police it! In the spirit of the jam, we do ask you make some effort to keep it in tune with the horror genre, but that can be SPOOKY or 饾搱饾搮饾憸饾憸饾搮饾搸. As for the theme, it's completely optional!

Q. CAN I WORK ON MULTIPLE GAMES?

A. As long as each game was started during the jam period, that's absolutely fine! Just don't over-work yourself!

Q. DOES MY GAME HAVE TO BE FINISHED/POLISHED? CAN I WORK ON THE SUBMISSION AFTERWARDS?

A. No stress! Submit whatever you've got. Of course, you're more than welcome to keep working on the game after the jam has ended, however the jam will be closed to new uploads until the voting period is over. If this issue is a major bug found in your game, please contact us!
