This jam is now over. It ran from 2017-10-28 07:00:00 to 2017-11-07 01:00:00. View 53 entries

2017 is almost over. It's been quite a stressful time for a lot of us, so let's take a week to work on something tiny for our own sake. There's no competition, no risk, and no pressure. You don't have to do anything big or shiny, just take a moment to get the satisfaction of making something that won't add undue stress on yourself.

You can make a game, write a poem, knit a sweater, draw a picture, compose a song, or do anything else that you would enjoy. It doesn't need to be about the state of the world, or something that makes the people that play it feel happy. This is just for you.


The jam "officially" runs from October 28th to November 5th, with a bit of buffer on either end. Feel free to start earlier, or finish later. If you want to submit after the jam ends feel free to @ me on twitter and I'll let you submit.


Have fun! And always remember to take care of yourselves. ✨
