Non-Artists - Don't Worry
Just wanted to add a post here to reassure entrants that are not particularly skillful artists, that games using a basic style are very welcome and to remind everyone of the standard of graphic that was very common 30 years ago.
There is of course a lot of magnificent artwork from the time, but I wanted to highlight how even perfunctory artwork can work well with text.

Acorns Quest by AH Software
Castle Eerie by Tartan Software
Forest At World's End by Interceptor Software
Kingdom of Kull by ZX Computing
.... anyway, the purpose of this post is to highlight that even though we have some great artist in the jam, that even if you are not a great artists, by going abstract, you can still add something that makes a game a little bit more unique feeling.
