You should still be able to submit something yes, either a demo or a beta version of the game. You can upload the game so only those with the link can see it, which would just be people rating games in the jam (if you're worried about making it public in an unfinished state). Then you can get some feedback and continue updating it after the jam.
Hi, we usually do it once a year in January. I know some people have done a demo 1 year then aimed to finish the full game the year after. Hopefully if it goes well then you can just keep updating your game all year though, the jam can just be there to help you get started
It's your game so you can do whatever you want with it after the jam, the only thing you may want to do it leave it as-is during the 2 week ratings phase, and then carry on with improvements
There is no official theme, the theme is just to finish something. Someone else did ask and I gave a few suggestions though (just if you want some ideas). The list of suggestions was:
- Make a Friend
- Candle in the Dark
- Lost in Space
- What Does this Button Do?
- Make the Best of It
- How Did I Get Here?
No reason why not, the only rule or thing I'm against is just submitting games that were already finished a while ago. If you do any work to finish something, polish or tidy it up then it's fair game to submit it!
Yes you have to finish and upload your game to itch as normal first, once you've done that then return to the jam main page and press the big 'Submit your project' button at the top. That should give you a list of all your games, just select the one you want to enter. Don't forget you need to make the game public as well.
I think if you make all that clear then there's no issue. It's fine to use this jam as a learning experience. The rules are some of the most relaxed around, to help people at all different levels and stages in their process
If you join the jam but don't have anything to submit that's fine. You'll still be able to view and play games, as wellbas post comments, you just won't be able to rate them. Last jam we had over 860 people join but only around 280 games were submitted
