SeedComp! is a 2-round interactive fiction game jam, focusing on creativity and the growth of ideas.
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. You can sign-up to Round 2 here.
All indicated deadlines are set to midnight UTC -10/HST time. Don’t worry, Itch translates it to your local time automatically.
During the 1st Round, Planting, you are invited to submit 'seeds' into the competition. These seeds can be absolutely anything, from game introductions, pieces of art, blurbs, design documents, puzzles, poems, characters, I7 extensions, settings, feelies, or even code!
You can submit:
If your seed is not selected during this edition of the SeedComp!, you may choose to keep it in the seedbank and make it available for future editions until it is used.
During the 2nd Round, Sprouting, you can sign-up your intent to use Seeds (optional, via this form [TBA]) and submit your entry to Round 2.
Discussion of seeds is encouraged in both our Discord and the Community Tab.
