Of course you can use dictionaries! Just make sure to give them credit if it is required so under license or you just wanna do so. Also I think it would be awesome to have some of more unusual symbols included too as they are really handy if you are into coding but thats my opinion. This is your game though so its really up to you to decide what to use/not to use. I am much more interested in making learning typing more exciting and accessible to everyone. The other goal of this jam of course is to encourage making games because its awesome and fun.

The game was made outside of the challenge's allowed time, so i did not register for it. I just decided close to end of ld to make something (sorry i thought i wrote it in the description mb)
Wow that's sad that people do that :'( I am kind of burned out after fixing every bug in the universe in this game (it ate all of my power... which was nonexistent to begin with as a power eater 1 was a disaster lol) but hopefully I will get some courage to go and change the game to fit the 64x64 rez requirement (in theory its not that hard but reality is a different dimension). I used pico-8 for this so we will see how it works.
Edit: Reality is indeed very different. It would require a complete rewrite. Given the time I might just go and make another and hopefully more fun game which hopefully will fit the rez requirement!
Submitted first then saw the requirement. Decided to disclose that this game is indeed not 64x64. Decided to keep it submitted as it was made for this jam as usually jams have not only successful projects (look at ld or 7drl some projects fail but yet they still are submitted as they were made for the jam). Did not expect that it would cause frustration in other people.
Edit even though I did not in the end meet the requirement I did something while often many people dont. So showing not only successes but also failures can encourage more participants to actually finish and share their projects because thats what the jams are all about.
I think that it would be fine but i am not a jam creator. My rationale: you can do multiple dice with rolling one dice more than once. If having a dice is ok and you do not have a dice you are likely to use dice alternatives ie programs (not everyone has a d20 or d10 dice rolling around)
bfxr is a glorified sfxr according to description.
I am only starting learning music so I probably can't make anything reasonable yet ;) Good luck
