You have to join!

What-A-Jam is a game jam for you to make a game alone or with your friends! If you don't have friends who make games, you can find new ones in the community and join with them!

The jam runs saturday to sunday, so anyone who might be busy should have at least a little time to participate!

If you are a beginner, fear not! This is a SUPER FRIENDLY JAM all about having fun and making new friends so I totally suggest you try and participate!

Jam announcement video for those who don’t feel like reading:


Rules:

1) You can join alone or in a team of any size!

2) You can use existing codebase you have lying around, try not to recycle whole projects, but you don't need to reinvent the wheel if you can already fly!

3) Please warn others if your game treats any sensitive topics or if it contains flashing colors or anything else that might disturb the player.

4) The game should be submitted during the jam, obviously

5) Following the theme is optional! Yeah, one of the voting categories is about the theme, but if you have an awesome game idea that you want to experiment with without committing too hard to it...well this is you place!

Open ratings!

Every submitted game will be rated by the participants in these categories:

  • Gameplay experience (was it fun to play?)
  • Visuals (how did it look?)
  • Sound (were sounds and music pleasant?)
  • Creativity (how original was it?)
  • Theme interpretation (how well did it fit the theme?
  • WHAT-A-GAME! (overall what rating would you give it lol)
