Any general questions or concerns.

Hi :) Is there gonna be a theme?

Host

As long as it is an adventure text based game, the game itself can be about anything. If you do want a goal you could do a game about comedy, but that's just optional.

how would you define "Excessive gore"? Are zombie/supernatural undead type of settings off-limits?

Host

I should probably be more specific in the jam page about that as well. I would primarily consider excessive gore the overuse of visceral body fluids. So, zombies are allowed as long as they are not too dramatic.

does adventure based mean like,  zork? or could it be like a twine game?

Host

I am aware of both types of games and either should be fine as long as it can be considered a "game" and follows required rules.

would a game like night in the woods or oxen-free be considered a text adventure? or does it have to be only text like in twine or something? 

Host

Although those are great games, I would not exactly consider them text based even though text may be a huge component. With that said, games are publicly voted on so it could be possible to create a game like your examples and still rank very well.

Would Visual Novel-type games count? Games such as Chaos;Head, Steins;Gate, Clannad, ect.

Host

I would consider those text based yes.
