This jam is now over. It ran from 2021-06-25 23:00:00 to 2021-07-02 23:00:00. View 50 entries

"Wouldn't it be splendid if there were a thinky puzzle game jam?" said the fine folks of the Thinky Puzzle Games Discord server. And it would indeed, so here it is!


What is a thinky puzzle game? Nobody really knows. The devotees of such games have been known to smile at all sorts of diverse puzzles and conundrums. Puzzlescript games, puzzle platformers, number games, word games, games with or without grids, games with or without secrets. Easy games. Hard games. But keep it thinky and save your FPS games and dexterity-intensive platformers for another day.

This jam has an (optional) theme which games are invited to follow, which is:

The Elephant in the Room

Maybe you are not yet a member of the Thinky Puzzle Games Discord server? If not and you would like to be, you can join here: https://discord.gg/jbQrge7pkk ...but it's not compulsory to join in with this jam.

You can make your jam game using whatever tools you like and for whatever platform. You may find more people play it if it can run from a browser window, but that's your choice.

There are no formal rules for this jam, just have fun, but try to spend no more than 48 hours in total working on your game and to keep to the spirit of the thing please don't submit projects to the jam unless they were written during the week of the jam (but a bit of code reuse and so on is fine).
