Congrats to everyone who participated on Open Jam 2019! Everyone who participated is a FOSS hero!
A couple of items of business: 1. Late submissions. Itch.io submission deadline is hard and unfeeling and it shuts of the second the time passes. We however as hosts aren't hard and unfeeling :). If you just missed the deadline never fear! We can generate you a late submission link. Just email me: email@example.com, or chat (@hosts) in discord, a link to your game and I'll generate you a link. https://itch.io/docs/creators/game-jams#the-submission-process/late-submissions
2. Voting starts now! You can start playing and rating games immediately, and voting ends in 7 days. Please be patient with peoples entries as there may be bugs. Post constructive comments. You can fix blocking bugs during the voting phase as we want people to play your game!
3. Judging. The hosts will be going through each entry and awarding Open Source Karma to each entry as a comment as outlined in the rules page: https://itch.io/jam/open-jam-2019 The top 3 games with (Overall + Open Source Karma) will be featured at All Things Open conference later this month. Note games need at least 10 ratings to qualify, so make sure to play and rate as many games as you can!
Congrats again and THANK YOU for joining!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Hey Open Jammers!
Now that Open Jam is over, I'd like to invite you to all to contribute to another Open Source game project that @mwcz and I are working on for the Command Line Heroes podcast. We are in need of all types of contributions and you guys are the best since you already love open source games! This game will have very high visibility as this a very popular award winning podcast and it will also be featured at Red Hat Summit next year!
As part of this project we are working on creating an Open Source HTML5 adventure game engine based on Tiled and Phaser3 called Hero Engine. This engine will be used to create "Command Line Heroes: The Game" announced on Episode 1 of Season 2 of the Command Line Heroes Podcast, also Open Jam is discussed in this episode!

Hello Open Jammers!
There is just 24 hours left to play and rate games for Open Jam 2018! There are just a few games that have under the 10 rating minimum to qualify for All Things Open, so if we could really use everyone's help to rate these last games:
Thanks to everyone who have already played and commented on games!
Also Open Source Karma has been awarded to almost every game, so login and check how many stars your game got. We've seen so much more use of open source this year it's amazing!
Top ranked games will be announced after voting ends and we have had time to calculate the final scores based on Open Source Karma.

Hey! You already have a star for your web build. You get a 1 star if your game runs on linux or web because they are open platforms. but you don't get two stars if you have a linux and web build, it's just 1 star for an open platform, and you already got it for web.
Hey! Actually you did have a web build that worked that I forgot to add a star for so thanks for pointing that out! Here is what you got stars for:
1 for github repo with good README
1 for blender
1 for game playable in browser
