It would be a challenge for others to try and play it, but if you can come up with an idea how to share it, then sure!

Yes, Trijam is supposed to be a 3 hour challenge, but at the same time, the main idea is to practice game development, so exceeding the time limit is absolutely fine. Originally, only games that were made in 3 hours could win Trijam. It was changed in 2020, where we added a rating for "How long did you make the game?", so your time was included in rating, but community didn't like it, since occasionally people would vote less than 5 stars for games made in 3 hours or under. Community wanted the old system of determining winners back. So now it is possible to be #1 in rating, but not winning Trijam.

That's cool! what a coincidence :D 

It's an honor system, recording is always a cool thing to have, tho!

@TrijamGJ

You can check the jam to see how much time until it starts! The weird time is due to us being located in Europe :D

And remember that you're doing it for yourself! So if you work on games regularly, the skill you'll acquire will be far more valuable!

This is awesome! You, sir, are very organized! 

We suggest don't be so focused on whether others made game in 3 hours, focus on yourself. The benefit of actually doing the challenge regularly is much greater than cheating in this case!

Yes, it's fine!

Awesome! Thanks for participating!

It's part of preparation. The 3 hours is for execution! 

Thank you for spotting this

You can add them as contributors on game page!

Of course, you can build on your work! The goal is to practice game development and improve your skills, become more efficient! :)

Hey, thank you for noticing! It should be fixed now!

Usually  it will be easier for the player to pick up and play your game if you use standard key bindings. But you as the developer can test your hypothesis to see if your game will work better with different keys!

First time ever, there will be a prize for the winner! (Trijam merch)

There will also be 2 participation prizes - Trijam t-shirts! Those will be determined in a lottery on a livestream after the voting will have ended!

Your games will be playtested on Wednesday at 4PM UTC on Twitch

Sorry, we missed your question, but menu is part of the game, so it counts towards time spent on development!

If you follow Trijam rules (make the game during this jam and show how much time it took to make it), you can do it!

Good luck and have fun! :)

The software you intend to use sounds good, you should be able to make a game! It's likely that at first you'll go over the 3 hour limit, but that's ok, it's part of the learning process! Once you get better at planning and executing, you can beat the 3 hour challenge. So just go for it, make games, you'll have a portfolio of prototypes and valuable experience! :)

See you on Twitch

We have 3 winners - SebasRez, Nizart and Rodulane! Congrats! And thank you to all of the participants and finalists! We'll do more participation contests in the future!

The participation contest is running from 115 to 123, the 8 finalists had made at least 6 games during this timespan

Today on the stream we will find out who will get 3 Trijam t-shirts! The finalists are Nizart, Caterpillar games, JafCraze, SebasRez, Rodulane, mrphilipjoel, onarateam and Quadratic games!

It's time to do a lottery for the Trijam participation contest and do a playtesting stream on Twitch

Did you find the link?

Yeah, you can use any tools you want, but sometimes it might be the case that not everyone can play if there is no browser versions!

See you on Twitch

Rules are simple - participate in Trijams to get a chance to win in sweepstakes. 

You have to participate in 6 (six) out of the next 9 (nine) Trijams to qualify! 

The contest will run from Trijam #115 to Trijam #123, which means that after Trijam #118 there will be no new participants. 

We'll give out 3 (what a surprise) t-shirts! 

We’ll update a table of participants every week and post it in the Discord server

You have 3 days time to work on your game any time. The challenge is to make it in 3 hours. Check the video and read the description, maybe it will be clearer!

Yeah, it's like a sprint to practice focus!

Yeah, submit it, it will be more likely that your game will be played on the stream then!

You'll be fine! Hopefully you enjoyed the process!

See you on Twitch !
