Calling all 2D game enthusiasts! Join us on May Day weekend (April 30th-May 2nd) and make a spring-inspired 2D game in 48 hours. 🌞🍀🐇
The sequel to 2020's Spooky 2D Jam is finally here! The Spooky 2D Jam turned out to be a great success and a lot of fun, so I hope we can make this one even bigger and better. The overall winner gets a $20 gift card, 2nd place = $15, 3rd place = $10.
This jam takes place over the May Day weekend , running from 6pm BST (1pm ET / 10am PST) on Friday 30th April to 6pm on Sunday 2nd May. Voting will run for 5 days, with the results revealed at 6pm on Friday 7th May.
Thanks to everyone who suggested themes and voted!
The 1st/2nd/3rd place submissions will win gift cards for a platform of the winner's choosing (e.g Steam, Itch.io) - $20, $15, and $10 in that order! If the winning submission is made by a team, each member will get an equal split of the prize. I'll contact the submitter of the winning project shortly after the results are revealed to sort out the prize.
The rules are as follows;
Your game should be 2D. You can use any engine or tools you want as long as the final game is 2D (I personally use the Construct engine. Godot and Unity are also good options). "2.5D" is also allowed but your game may be voted down for it.
Try to make your game relevant to the theme, and relevant to springtime in general.
You cannot submit a game that you made or started making before the jam began. The game must be specifically for this jam.
It is highly preferred that any assets used are created during the 48 hour jam period. However, you can use premade assets, but you MUST declare this in the game's description!
You can work solo or as part of a team of any size.
Please do not submit a game that features excessive/offensive gore or horror. Try and make something suitable for all ages!
No NSFW content or any content that could be considered racist/sexist/homophobic etc.
Please keep any discussion with fellow jammers respectful, and just be nice in general!
🗳️ RATING CRITERIA:
Rating will be open for 5 days after the jam closes. The rating criteria is as follows (with equal weight for each criteria):
