The game must be dedicated to the jam, not just a game that you have been working on forever. To ensure this the game must follow the theme in a recognizable way. You are free to interpret the theme in any way you see fit, but if the judges cannot make the connection, you will not be eligible for prizes.
No NSFW-games are allowed. This is an open contest with participants of all ages and backgrounds, please limit your submission accordingly in order to be eligible for prizes.
Any engine or framework is allowed for use, both paid as well as free versions. However the game must run on Windows or in a browser in order to be eligible for prizes. If it doesn't, we cannot guarantee that we'll be technically able to play (and thus judge) it. If you are building on MAC OS or Linux, please contact us beforehand so we can see whether we can accommodate your submission anyway.
A submission can win in more than one category at once. Some categories have a certain overlap (for example the winning team in best game is likely to score very high in one or more other categories as well), yet we'll make sure to keep these categories separate wherever possible in order to distribute the prizes across the participants.
All rights to the submitted game remain with the submitting dev team. The submitting team allows the mods and judges to use and present the submission and footage of it during the judging period. This may include streaming the submission on YouTube, Twitch and other channels.
Submissions must be free during the entire judging period. After the judging period each team may monetize their game as they see fit.
All cash prizes are by default distributed via PayPal. If PayPal is not an option for you, you will not be eligible for cash prizes.
Each team has to provide a PayPal account that a potential cash prize will be sent to. The teams distribute any prizes among themselves.
The prize pool is comprised from cash and various other items, provided by the hosts and sponsors. These prizes will be distributed in the categories mentioned above. Submitting does not in itself result in any claims to any part of the prize pool.
