This jam is now over. It ran from 2020-10-03 00:00:00 to 2020-10-06 00:00:00. View 33 entries

✨ IMPORTANT UPDATE ✨
While the jam officially ends on October 5th 0:00 UTC+0, we decided to extend the deadline on itch.io with 1 day to give everyone enough time to wrap things up, build the game.exe, set up the project page, etc. We have a lot of first time jammers and participants from different timezones, so we thought this would fit well within the spirit of a "low-key" game jam. 
______
Welcome to the very first Wholesome Games Jam!
This is a 48 (+24 to submit game) hour game jam starting on October 3rd, organized especially for our Discord community. It's pretty low-key so there's no competition element. The main focus is making wholesome games with other members and making new connections! The theme is: Don't give up!

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

  • Anyone can join of any skill level as long as you're a member of the  Wholesome Games Discord server. 
  • Get yourself a 🍯 Game jam role in our 🌈label-me-this channel to get access to ALL of the game jam channels,
    including ones that will help you find a team.
  • You can join in teams of 2-6 people. No solo teams are allowed.
  • You can press the "Join jam" button above to let us know you're interested in joining, but it's not mandatory.
