They say there's always a relevant xkcd comic for any given situation.
Well, now there'll be a relevant xkcd game based on a relevant xkcd comic for any given situation!
This jam is a tribute to the awesome work of Randall Munroe.
1) You get to make a game based on an xkcd comic. In a weekend. How cool is that?
2) And you get to brag about how you did in the voting results (/pretend there wasn't any voting if you rank last)!
3) If that doesn't motivate you enough, you will also get a special role in our Discord server!
4) And you'll get lots of feedback from other participants and YouTubers/streamers (see below)!
5) If you really need that extra push: I'll give away Steam game prizes to participants who give good game feedback and my top picks!
Come join our official Discord server (for this jam and future jams), because game jams are more fun when there's a community.
You can also follow my personal twitter @XavierEkkel if you have any questions or just because you like living life on the edge.
If you are a Twitch streamer or YouTuber interested in playing the games from this game jam, I can add you to a list in this section so participants and onlookers can easily find your content! If interested, please tweet me or email me.
For Twitch streamers, I've set up a Twitch community which you can stream under (so others can easily find the jam streams).

No, you can use any art style you want.
Do I have to interpret the comic literally?
No, you can interpret the comic however abstractly or literally as you want.
I don't understand [a particular xkcd comic]!
Not to worry! There is an entire wiki devoted to explaining xkcd comics (explainxkcd.com).

Yes! If you still have the energy, feel free to keep polishing up your games, fixing bugs, and adding critical features after the jam!
