Join us for the July Bitsy jam! This is the 16th monthly #bitsyjam - to participate just create a game (of any size) using Bitsy with the theme "The Sublime".

Teaming up with the Gothic Novel Jam

This month the Bitsy jam is teaming up with the Gothic Novel Jam!

Our theme ("The Sublime") is a common theme of Gothic Novels, and can be used as a "modifier" for the Gothic Novel Jam if you choose. Everyone is encouraged to combine the gothic and sublime themes and submit their game to both jams! :)

Theme

What does "The Sublime" mean? It's a bit tricky to define, but it basically means the sense of awe of you get when encountering something outside or transcending humanity (for example, a craggy mountain). For the purpose of the jam you are free to interpret it however you want! You can make "The Sublime" central to your game, or just a tiny reference.

So tell me more about "Bitsy"

Bitsy is a little editor for little worlds or games. You can use it to make a game in your browser just by drawing it! If you're new to Bitsy and don't know where to start I recommend reading Claire Morley's Bitsy tutorial. If you want to see games people have made with Bitsy, there's a big list of the games here on itch.io. There is also a discord channel with lots of helpful people where you can get inspiration and ask questions!
