When we make games, we focus so much on what we are good at, everything else gets left behind. Sometimes its good to try something new so that you can develop new skills.
In the Switcheroo Jam, you must focus on anything other than your strong points. Are you are a good programmer? Try some art! Are you a 3D Modeller? Give some level design a go!
You pick a role at the beginning of the jam, it should be something that you are not very good at, or have very little experience in. That sounds wrong, but by trying something new, you can develop new skills and gain knowledge and appreciation for other people's workflows. you might even find your new favourite role!
When picking your game idea you should try and pick a game idea that requires little of the role you're best at, that way you can focus on a role that you are less experienced in.
