SeedComp! is a 2-round interactive fiction game jam, focusing on creativity and the growth of ideas. 

Join our Discord! 

SeedComp! is separated into 2 distinct rounds: Planting and Sprouting. You can take part in either or both. The first round runs from Dec 7th to Jan 7th, the second from Jan 9th to March 1st.  Round 1 has ended, but you can find all submissions here.
Note: the version of the seeds is the one from Round 1's deadline. Not all seeds have the same license.

All indicated deadlines are set to midnight UTC -10/HST time. Don’t worry, Itch translates it to your local time automatically.

Round 2 : Sprouting

During the 2nd Round, Sprouting, you can sign-up your intent to use Seeds (optional, via this Excel Sheet) and submit your entry. 

 Discussion of seeds is encouraged in both our Discord and the Community Tab.
A thread has also been created on the IntFiction Forum.

Submission Guidelines:

  • All entries must be Interactive Fictions.
  • All entries must be completed games. While there is no requirement in length, a reasonable target is about 15-30 minutes to play.
  • All Entries must be free to play for all during the competition.
  • All entries must be based on at least one seed from Round 1. You may choose to incorporate more  or all seeds if you wish to. 
    • The entries must follow the licensing type of the most restrictively licensed seed used (indicated on the seed page).
  • All entries must indicate the seeds used in their submission form.
  • Seed use is not exclusive to one person, multiple people can sign up for the same seed.  There is no 'dibs'.
  • You may use your own seed from Round 1.
    • While you are allowed use only your own seed (with no other seeds), this does go against the spirit of SeedComp! and thus your submission won’t be eligible for awards.
  • Content Warnings must be displayed when submitting the entry.

You can also opt out of receiving awards on your own when submitting. Organisers can submit entries but are not eligible to receive awards. 

We encourage you to provide a downloadable copy of your entry in your game page, for accessibility purpose.
