Is there a limit to the duration of the game? Or is there a minimum limit on how many levels the game must have? Can it be played and finished in a couple of minutes?

Not all forms of games have 'levels' at all.


But, if there's anything I've learned in my years of doing random gamejams... short and sweet sometimes works the best. Shoot for a 15 minute experience, but if it's 20+, that's cool too. But you don't want people playing a game for too long, especially if it's not polished, full of bugs, etc., respect their time. 

If you aim to do something short, you can polish the heck outta it.


The game can be as long as you’d like it to be. There’s no duration limit.
