Removed for not incorporating the theme.

(1 edit)

Thanks for letting us know! Being in another jam only hurts ya if your theme adhesion is super weak or nonexistent.

The prompt is "Sports 2". Up to you to interpret that on your own. Is it the sequel to sports? An Evolution of Sports? Sports played during quarantine? Wacky high powered sports? Old sports that are now played by super natural beings and taking everything to 11? 

There's a lot of ideas you could come up with!

Removed for violating the jam rule on unfinished / unplayable entries.

This entry has been removed for violating the rules against:

Low effort entries,
Minimal Theme adherence,
Did not fill out required fields.

If you fix all the above issues before the deadline feel free to resubmit your updated game.

This is important Jam info. Pinned.

Removed from Jam for violating rules regarding low effort entries. If you make an actual game out of this feel free to resubmit.

Hey Greeneman42. Good question! At the bottom of the rules it says:

* You may assemble your team and discuss possible ideas. But avoid designing and DEFINITELY do not create any game specific code before the start date. ( Plugins, engines, and frameworks are fine ).

All game engines are allowed including Asset Store packages and open source frameworks. Web based games are also welcome. You can make a game for whatever platform you like, but know that if your game is Linux / Mac / or VR exclusive you're going to have a limited audience for ranking. But you do you.

Thanks for the question!

I might suggest adding arrows pointing up where you have 90 degree walls you're intended to climb over. 

I know a few people who'd reach the end of the tutorial level then just get confused and quit because they don't know what to do and can't see the top of the platform.

Thanks Leafo!

I ran the 2018 Awful Summer Jam . Our judging / voting period ended yesterday but the results page is completely empty.

Additionally I cannot see the ranked list for our public voting category "Community Choice". I'd have to open each entry page and look at the rank assigned to it, making it tough to select a runner up winner.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

This game has been disqualified for lack of content.

Hey Wallriver,

Unfortunately the jam is over, so nobody is allowed to update their games until judging & voting ends. Since that'd be unfair to the people who worked hard to finish their games before the deadline.

Hey, we'd like to include this in the package we put together for streamers, so you can update your build, adding features, fixing bugs, and what-not.

Contact me on Discord and I'll send over feedback notes.

Just a heads up, your game uses a self extracting archive which is technically a violation of the rule against installers.

We talked it over and decided to let it slide in this instance as it doesn't do anything more than unzip the files into the target directory. In the future we're going to clarify the rule to also include self-extracting archives.

tldr: You're fine, just don't use self extracting archives in future Awful jams.

We really liked the art but the poor audio, gameplay, and thin theme in light of the many other entries swayed the screening team to disqualify.

We hope you'll participate in future jams!

Hey just a heads up, your external link triggers pop-up blockers. Making it hard to download your game.

In the future you should use's hosting.

Hey ShareShift,

Feel free to share the game in the Discord if you want some feedback.

If you submit a game that's broken, has next to no content, or doesn't have anything to do with the theme you're likely to get flagged by the screeners after the jam. So it's up to you.

-- Awful Jams Staff

Your submission to the Awful Summer Jam 2018 has been disqualified for being developed before the jam started.

Please do not resubmit this game to the jam. If you would like to make an original game with the time still left in the jam you are more than welcome.

We love to see the jam logo and art used in entries! But it's not at all required to submit.

Thanks for the question!
-- Awful Jams Staff

Hey ShareShift,

The judging process in this jam is intensive for the judges, they put a lot of hard work into reviewing each submitted game. So to be fair to the people who do put time and effort into their jam entry, we disqualify games that have little to no substance.  A good example of this is While that game is on theme and good for a laugh, there isn't a lot there to talk about. So it's disqualified from judging.

We don't determine "minimal effort" based on skill, engine used, or if a splash screen is present, it just has to have some personality and care put into it.

Thanks for the question!

Personally, I find this hilarious. But it's breaking our rule against low effort entries and is disqualified from judging.

But I'm not removing the submission from the jam, it's hilarious. It just won't be judged.

Hi Psi,

We appreciate your enthusiasm, but there is no rule against this in the jam itself. The EULA simply states you are legally responsible (not Awful Jams) if copyrights holders come knocking.

To clarify, We will not disqualify a game for having copyrighted material. It's not our place to determine what is or isn't infringing. However if your game is DMCA'd, it will be disqualified and we can't do anything to help you.
