Welcome to Survive the Game Jam 5!!!
Previous Jam: (https://itch.io/jam/survive-the-game-jam-4)
Next Jam (https://itch.io/jam/survive-the-game-jam-6)
Survive the Game Jam is essentially a weekly game jam focused on creating unique and fun survival games in 72 hours.
After over a year, I'm bringing this game jam back!
Back when it started I allowed a very large range of games, that just including surviving in some way, but with the return of this game jam I want to take it back to what I had originally intended and make it about creating true survival games, with unique ideas and game mechanics.
This means a game where you control a person, or a group of people, and must guide them to survival, preferably having to manage resources such as food, water and ammo. There's a lot that can be done, and a lot of possibility for unique takes on the survival genre.
The 72 hours takes place over a weekend. In my timezone it starts at 12am Friday morning and ends 12am Monday morning. My timezone is NZDT so just use a timezone converter or just check the Game Jam page for when it starts.
The Theme is announced just before it starts.
CURRENT THEME: Resurrection
Fitting, for the revival of this game jam, also potentially an interesting idea for a survival game, where your main goal is to not die.
