Stranger Jam is now over, but if you'd like to watch a playthrough of all the submissions, The Wander Shadow has made a playlist:


Original Announcement:


Just how strange are we talking?

The typical jam format on itch.io is all about teamwork. Gathering your friends (and maybe a few people you met online) together and seeing what you can make in a few hours/days.  But what if we do something stranger, for a change? 

In Stranger Jam, you can only partner up with people you haven't met before. Hence people who are complete strangers. The idea is to give people in the jammer community a chance to mingle with each other, to get to know one another not through judging each other's games after the jam is over, but by getting to know them through participating on the same team. We'll be coordinating this through a Discord server, where you can introduce yourself, talk about your talents and find people who might be able complement your vision. 

Theme:

One life, New character each time you die

Rules:

1) You must build your team on the https://discord.gg/tRs5uA5 Stranger Jam Discord server.

2) Your game must be consistent with the theme.

3) Your game must be not published anywhere before the jam.

4) It is highly encouraged that your team consists of complete strangers.

You can contact us via the Discord server, feel free to ask any questions.
