With school in the way, it can be harder for young game developers to practice their skills. That’s why we created Weekend Jam. This game jam welcomes programmers of any age and skill level using any programming language, to come together and create a game within a weekend’s time. This low-pressure jam is not just for those who need a break from online school, but for anyone who wants to use their weekend to do something creative.
But wait, it's a special edition? This happens every so often, whether it's a holiday or some other significant event. All it means is that there is a very specific style, whose use will be factored into voting unlike other weekend jams, and with a theme selection based more closely around the style.
Our spooky theme is...
What if you were dreaming one day but you couldn't wake up? There are so many possibilities with this creepy theme...
We get that some people may not want to compete, and do this just for fun. So while the theme is highly encouraged as games with the theme will score higher, it is completely optional! We do want to see creativity, though, so give it your best shot.
The style is an abstract subject, distinct from the theme, that gives food for thought to developers who are adding art to their game, or otherwise who need inspiration for a mechanic. There is a unique style for every Weekend Jam, so keep coming back.
Next week is Halloween, so what could be a better style than Halloween? Trick-or-treating, scary costumes, carving pumpkins—whatever it means to you. Get your spook on! Originally, this was going to factor into voting, but due to the broadness of the style, we have decided to remove the criterion.
The voting period will last 48 hours so everyone will get a chance to vote on their favorite games. The entries will be rated on three criteria:
In addition, each of us (GDG^meplayer and NotEuclid) will select our favorite game for a special criterion...
