The essay is a flexible format that allows its author to communicate, work through, and explore thoughts without traditional formal barriers. The content of essays can be personal, literary, historical, philosophical, aesthetic, and is often a combination of many topics, perspectives, and approaches to writing.
Bitsy is a flexible and accessible game engine that encourages tinkering and creating spaces to explore. It has been used to make large and small projects, and games ranging in topic from personal experiences, tributes to favorite videogame genres, and fantastical stories. There are even non-fiction Bitsies, that use the engine's ability to pull together basic graphical representations, space and text to convey a theme or topic in an unconventional way.
If your skill is in critical writing,
this jam allows you to explore any topic through a different sort of
structure. If you're coming from previously making games, you can use
the jam as a chance to reflect on how to present a topic that has
been interesting to you lately into a Bitsy game, or even adapt an
existing essay or piece of critical writing into this form.
