NOTE: Themes+ is served best with other jams. It is not a dish on its own, though it could theoretically be eaten on its own (kinda like actual jam).

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: Time is running out

Secondary Theme: Forgetfulness

Tertiary Theme: Destruction

General challenge: Make the game blind-accessible

Try-something-new Challenge: Implement realistic physics

Design Challenge: Give everything 2 or more purposes/uses

Art Challenge: Use ASCII art only

Audio Challenge: Use hyperrealistic sounds

Extreme Challenge: Make the whole game in Notepad

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!
