What is this Jam?

The SG-1000 Jam is for making a game over a 2 week period inspired the gameplay feel and aesthetic of the Sega SG-1000 system. The SG-1000 was first released in Japan on July 15th 1983. It was Sega's debut home video game system pre-dating the more better known Master System and Mega Drive/Genesis. Below is an example of some SG-1000 video games in action to give you an idea of what this little known system could achieve visually.
