Hey dommy,

While I agree that one of the games submitted here looks like an opportunistic attempt to just hook onto a popular jam, remember that this is a game jam, where the points aren't real and the quality of your work literally doesn't matter. It's OK to submit half-baked projects and low-quality stuff to game jams. Game jams are about experimentation, and I hope we get to see a lot of good on-topic experiments, regardless of quality level.

Agreed, however the game he's referring to was uploaded to itch.io months before this jam was even created.

yeah. that one is an opportunistic hanger-on. I'm not sure I have the ability to remove it, however.

nevermind-- I was able to remove it.

That's a good thing

Hopefully it's just an outlier case and not a sign of incoming widespread abuse of itch.io's open game jam submission process, especially if there aren't moderation tools in place to counter it.

*EDIT* Well I guess there are tools after all :P
