The Two-Minute Horror jam is about creating short games with unique and surprising mechanisms or unpredictable plot twists. Don't think about creating a complex story, here the goal is to aim for efficiency and find the right "thing" to spook the players.

The concept of this jam was inspired by the "Two-Sentence Horror" subreddit (


  • Games must be shorter than 2 minutes
  • You should add a unique mechanism or an unpredictable plot twist to your game (Jump scares should be avoided!)
  • All kinds of games are accepted (FPS, 2D, etc... But Retro / Low Res / PS1 games are preferred ;))
  • You can work alone or with your friends
  • You can spend as much time as you want creating your game
  • You can submit as many games as you want
