GBJAM's Kickstarter has officially launched and we need all the support we can get! If you love GBJAM and want it to grow well into the future, your support is needed. The best part about donating is you will get awesome GBJAM merch like T-shirts and stickers!
If everyone who signed up to particiapate in the annual jam this year donated as little as $5 we would exceed the goal!
Head over to the GBJAM Kickstarter and pledge a little bit, it will help more then you will know!
For resolution clarification, you need the game to be 160x144, but you can scale it so that it runs in a window large enough for people to see. In past jams most people scale x2 or x4. A lot of people usually even include options in the settings to allow for scaling preference.
Correct, You can switch your colors as much as you would like, but only 4 colors can be displayed on screen at any one time!
@SetTheBet as for what you are saying, you are more the welcome to stick to the old classic GB hardware :)
The jam is loosely based around the GameBoy limitations, it wasn't designed for people to strictly follow all the limitations of the GB nor the GBC.
The way the jam is currently set up allows for a lot of creativity and freedom, but still helps everyone produce a game with a GB style.
To help clarify, 4 colors can display in game at any one time. If there is more then 4 colors you aren't following the rules of the jam. It can be any 4 colors in the entire color spectrum, but no more then 4 colors at any one time onscreen.
GBJAM's aren't themed so your free to make whatever you would like but we also hope you will respect the jam and it's participants and not start working on the game until October 1st.
Also why is your profile picture of Mo from gamesbymo?
