Once a year, in the late witching hours of the fading October, an eerie occurrence plagues itch.io. Out of nowhere they spring: the monsters, the creeps, the anomalies, the harbingers of terror. All in unison, together to witness the congregation of those that celebrate the annual Scream Jam. The only way to survive is to face the terror, embrace the dread, and most importantly, have fun!
SCREAM JAMs are horror-themed game jams, made to encourage both beginner and experienced game developers to get spooky! From straight-up scares, to interactive fiction and role-playing games, we encourage all creators to try making something spooky / sp00py in these annual Halloween game jams!
SCREAM JAMs have no particular theme! Across the year, SCREAM ZONE hosts other game jams which are often based upon an optional theme or season, but SCREAM JAMs are intentionally open-ended.
You can join our friendly and welcoming community of game developers on Discord.
