What's this?

Are you stuck on a creative block? Do you have too many game ideas for a game jam? Maybe you just want a bigger challenge.

Whatever the case, just join the Themes+ Jam!

This jam is designed for you to make a game simultaneously for this and another jam. Be it the Ludum Dare, GM48, Alakajam, GamesPlus Jam, Mini Jam, whatever. Just use at least one of the themes or challenges from this page and you're ready to go! You can then submit the game for both jams.

If you want an even bigger challenge, try using every theme and challenge on this page, or even submit for other jams! (It's what I did, and the most extreme example is FLOOD: The Crystal Ninja, which was made for 8 jams at once!)

Any rules?

Just a few:

  • The game must have been created while the jam lasts.
  • Only use stuff you have made or otherwise own.
  • If you make NSFW stuff, specify it in the 'Metadata' section of the project.

Okay, so what are the themes?

Main Theme: 1, 2, 3

Secondary Theme: Unlockables

Tertiary Theme: Outside the Game Window

General challenge: Only one room/level (including menus)

Try-something-new Challenge: Learn how to use shaders

Design Challenge: Use few gameplay mechanics, but they can be used to do lots of things

Art Challenge: Make all art in MS Paint

Audio Challenge: Try to mimick famous sound effects from other games

Extreme Challenge: 8x8 screen resolution

Remember, you don't have to use all of the themes! You can use some, you can only use the Main Theme. It's up to you!
