This jam is now over. It ran from 2019-05-13 06:00:00 to 2019-05-20 05:00:00. View 64 entries

It's the second biannual TweetTweetJam! Make a game in 560 characters of code.

Why 560? Because you don't always need a ton of code to make something fun. Because sometimes it's nice to scale back. But mostly because it's the length of two tweets. PICO-8 is our recommended tool, but TIC-80 and other text-based engines will work as well!

Rules:

  1. Your final game code must be 560 characters or less. This includes spaces and brackets.
  2. No spritesheets or external art libraries allowed! All of your game art must fit into your code. Symbols such as 웃 and ★ are acceptable, as long as they work in your editor and can be included in a tweet!

If you need some inspiration, check out PICO-8 Tweet Games, compiled by Paul Nicholas. These games were made with 280 characters, so 560 is totally achievable!
